Can you remember all the cars that you have <B>'driven'</B> in your life? I was just thinking about all the cars that I have driven since I was 14, and my total came up to 57 different cars. These include cars you have owned/own, family cars, test drives, friends cars, cars you parked, and cars you stole, etc. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> This does <B>not</B> include cars you have 'ridden' in as a passenger or just 'sat' in, although different model years of the same cars driven do count.<P>Here is my list:<P><B><A HREF="http://drewsrx.port5.com/Home/list.html" TARGET=_blank>Cars I Have Driven!</A></B><P>BTW, I posted this on VWVortex as well and got a pretty good response. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>-Drew<P>

Well, the test is over, so I have about 20 minutes of free time... I can imagine about 30 cars I have test driven... now remember, I have only had my permit since February, and my license since last month... so I have done this all in about 9 months. I have also driven about 8 friend's cars, 2 uncle's, 3 aunt's, and my 4... o ya, and that one car my dad and I test drove at 9, and the dealer closed... does that count as stealing?? Well, we gave the car back the next morning... btw, it was a 99 sl500, the dealer was Eddie Accardi Subaru/Mazda/Toyota, so if you ever want to drive an sl 500 over night, you can come down here, and "borrow" one. That comes to a grand total of 50. <P>

Gawd, I can't remember everyone. I have owned 25+ let alone every car I have driven...just what I have appraised at the dealer, has to be 250+ let alone test drives, freinds, being in Europe. I couldn't begin to guess.<P>

I've owned 5 total. I still have 3 of them.<P>Driven? - well, with my dad being a Volvo salesman, and having worked in an auto recon (clean up and detail cars, then <B>drive</B> 'em to the auction), I really couldn't say. I'm sure its in the low hundreds. Everything from Accords, Camrys, to Range Rovers, Land Cruisers, to 3000GTs, Porsche 911 and 944Ts, a ZR-1... even some old Alfas, Fiats and Peugots. <P>Really makes me appreciate my Volvos... <P>

He's told me about it, and how when he turned it back in to the dealer he worked for, the bell housing was cracked from a little "hard" driving (It was probably airborn at least once <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> ).<P>
