Lets get an idea of everyones car point of view.

mine - 1982 Mustang GT...........(5.0 4 speed)
wife - 1983 prelude..............(5 speed)
mine - 1989 Mustang LX...........(5.0 auto)
mine - 1991 Cavalier Z24.........(5 speed)
mine - 1992 Yamaha FZR 600
mine - 1992 Corvette LT1.........(6 speed)
mine - 1993 T-bird Super Coupe...(auto)
wife - 1995 Grand Prix GTP.......(auto)
mine - 1998 Mustang GT...........(4.6 5 speed)
wife - 1998 Expedition...........(auto)
mine - 2000 Audi A6..............(2.7t 6 speed)
wife - 2001 Trailblazer..........(auto)

mine - 2006 S60R.................(6 speed) (current)
wife - 2007 CX-7.................(auto) Current)

If the t-bird SC was a 5 speed, I would still have it today. i loved that car. my best guess, I have personally driven 560,000 miles since i turned 16 in 1987.

I just realized my 04 Volvo is the newest car I have owned by 6 years lol. And without that, it would be 10 years. I don't like newer cars. Except for this one :)

1994 Red Mitsubishi Eclipse
1987 Red BMW 320
1988 Brown BMW 316
2005 Black Volvo V70R
2006 Red VW GTI
1994 White Nissan pickup
2007 Red Volvo XC90
2010 Black Mazda Speed3

Of all those vehicles, the V70R has been the most reliable, economical, practical, and fun to drive.
The one I hate the most... the VW GTI for crappy DSG transmission and other issues.
Worse gas mileage... Mazda Speed3

The speed3 has way more (speed) potential than the R, though. You should send me a PM and I can get you a specialized tune :)

This^

A friend of mine owns Powertrain Control Solutions and they built a 1300hp Mazda drag car. They modify Mazda's all the time and I am blown away by how much power can be had from those 4 cyl's.

I probably win for the biggest POS, my first car was a fiat 850 spyder, 1968 I think, car could not get out of its own way, A buddy & I pulled the motor without a hoist, just put a wheel barrow under it and dropped it that way (The 850 stood for 850cc motor)

04 v70 r is my newest car ever owned by 7 years, and after that more than 10. I am going older on the next one as well, maybe a 60's to 70's FIAT 500. Who could pick that over say a new 550i, right? ME!
