Default What vehicles have you owned?

Interestingly I was just thinking about this.

I am not including our ram 1500 as my dad gave that to me for my birthday when he bought his oldsmobile, and I gave it right back.

My list in order of ownership.

79 Thunderbird. 5.0 V8, ford 9'' rear.
98 Grand cherokee 4.0 I6. D35 in the rear.
78 Celica. 2.2 Liter I4. Dunno about the rear.
90 240SX. 2.4 liter I4. R200 rear. Soon to be 5.3 V8.
93 Chevy Blazer "beast" 4.3 V6. Dunno about the rear. 10 bolt?
93 240SX Vert. 2.4 I4. Piece of junk. R200 rear.
86 Fifth Ave. 5.2 V8. Chrysler corp. 8 3/4 rear IIRC.
05 Chevy Colorado. 2.8 liter I4. AAM800 rear.
03 Lincoln Town Car. 4.6 V8. 8.8 Rear.

I have owned 9 cars in the last four years. All 9 were rear or four wheel drive.

6 of them were American made, 3 Japanese. Two to one...heh.

Two of them were manual, 6 were four speed auto's, the Chrysler is a 3 speed auto.

7 of them were solid axle, not a single LSD in the bunch. 2 were IRS.

I also have a 1940 ford pickup if I am willing to restore it. And I can have an 87 305 powered chevy van too, but that's a gas guzzler. Oh and the 2x4 F250 with the 460...

And the cheapest and most reliable of the bunch was....The 93 Blazer with 255K on the clock. I made money when I sold that.

Your turn! Let us know what interesting things you have owned throughout the years. List any mods as well.
