Me: 13 cars in 44 years of driving. I've never been into cars beyond transportation.  My favorite was the 76 Cutlass Supreme which I bought around 1982 and got totaled in 1986. I've never leased a car.  I drive them as long as possible or until they get wrecked.

Looking back I haven't had much luck with cars.

I've always been a gearhead.

My first truck in high school was a 1991 F-150 with a V8 351W engine.  For a heavy truck it was moderately fast.  I lived in the country until i was 19 years old, this was a great farm truck.  Had the flowmaster exhaust so it sounded pretty stout.  I used to melt the tires leaving the high school parking lot, good time.

I sold it my senior year of high school to buy a Mustang 5.0.

1992 Ford Ranger.  It was my brothers truck, but he got it stuck in a large drainage ditch and flooded the engine.  My friends and i rebuilt the engine with a little help from my friend's dad who was a mechanic.  After we rebuilt it my dad sold it to me for $500 because he didn't think it would last very long.  I drove it sometimes and ended up selling it for $1500; the guy that bought it totaled it a few months later.  I remember this because it was my first manual transmission.

1993 Mustang Lx Coupe ex-DPS Police Interceptor.  5.0 with a 5 speed, very fun to drive.  Bought it my senior year of high school for $5000, it had 110k miles on it.  Drove it for a 2 years and then starting modding it for drag racing.  I ended up putting a 331 stroker with ~450hp in it with a TKO 5 speed and 3.73 rear end.  This car was very fast because i weighed just under 3k pounds.  It got stolen a year later from the parking lot at my job.  Turns out a friend of a friend wanted more than i did, stole it and sold it for parts.

1998 Ford Mustang Cobra.  Was a fun car to drive, it had Borla exhaust and sounded insane at high RPM's.  It had the 32v DOHC 4.6L V8 and a 5 speed.  Drove it for 3 years and then sold it due to high mileage, apparently these cars went south pretty fast once they hit 150k miles.  I didn't have the money to keep up with it, everything on these cars was stupid expensive because they weren't very common.

2001 Ford Mustang GT.  Had a 4.6L V8 and 5 speed.  I drove this for about 8 years.  Nice car that was reliable.  Had many long distance trips throughout the US in this thing.  I sold it to buy a motorcycle, wish i would have kept it.

1997 Toyota Camry.  ;D These cars are indestructible, i had this for 12 years and it was my daily driver so i could keep the 2001 Mustang GT for weekends.  Bullet proof.  I should have kept it forever.  I sold it to my cousin with 160k miles on it, still ran perfect.  She totaled it into a wall a few months later while talking on her cellphone.

2006 Ford Escape.  I actually still have this vehicle, it's AWD and works great for when it snows.  Nothing special about it, i've owned it for a long time and never had problems with it.  Has 150k miles on it.  Drive it every day.

2013 Ford F-150 FX4.  Cool truck, the only vehicle i've ever purchased new.  Owned it for 2 years and sold it to buy my vette.  Was stupid and bought it new, even with a good down payment the car note was retarded.  Won't do that again, i only pay cash now or at least 50% down and will not ever buy something new again.  Was a fun truck with the twin turbo v6.  Lots of room in the back and towed a trailer easily.  Also it got 24 MPG if you drove it easy.

My favorite toy.  ;D 2011 Corvette Z06.  Bought this 5 years ago, it was a garage queen with 8k miles on it.  I drive it on the weekends sometimes; it sits in the garage most of the time.  Has a bunch of mods and upgraded brakes, makes around 575bhp.  Crazy fast car and screams like Satan.  I tracked this car at many road courses when i lived in Texas, haven't tracked it in about 2 years.  I'll keep this car until i die.  427ci LS7 and a 6 speed, it has ridiculous power at all RPM's.  4th gear pulls like 2nd gear, it's like a freight train.  I've taken it up to 185 MPH and it was still pulling hard.  Crazy enough it gets 28 MPG on the freeway in 6th gear.  In the city it gets about 16 i think.  I never drive it easy, if i drive it i'm going to have fun.

I've always liked fast cars. ;D

There's just something about driving a powerful V8 with a manual transmission.
