1. first car a 128 Fiat….google it - they are hilarious. never put oil in it and torqued the engine….left it on the side of the highway.

2. 1969 Datsun 510. Cherry red. engine caught on fire in lynn valley. ran away, left it on the side of the highway.

3. 1971 volkswagen beetle. mushrooms used to grow in the backseat it was so leaky and old. used to shake once you hit 60 (which was about max) never put oil in it for two years and sold it for double what I paid to a high school kid who was going to pimp his ride.

4. 1978 chrysler lebaron town and country wagon (think the griswalds woody wagon) - bought for $500 and a case of beer. drove it to california and on the way back just outside of san franscisco the engine basically fell out of the bottom. took the plates and ran. left on the side of the highway.

5. 1986 nissan sentra. someone hit me drunk driving on the upperlevels and flipped it over the barricade. totalled and left on the side of the highway.

8 2002 Jetta - I totalled it. left on the side of the highway.

but I what I really want is a truck.

'73 Superbeetle
'71 Superbeetle
'69 Baja Bug (I rebuilt w/Porsche drivetrain. FUN!)
'75 Porsche 914
'78 Rabbit

Now, no car here… Ride an enduro MX bike year round.

Will build up a new 914 with big twin turbo upon return to BC.
Or, stuff a worked VR6 and syncro setup into one of those old Rabbit trucks…

1997 Suzuki Sidekick 4 door= fun little ride, good on gas, awesome out in the bush with a little lift and tire upsize

I'm happy to get outside and enjoy nature while I can, but I fear for the future of humanity

volkswagen 911 - not sure of the year, likely late 60's or early 70s. paid $300 for it - was about $290 too much. the engine would stop - just because - never could figure out why, luckily i just drove it locally. oh yeah and then it would start again :S the heating was the best part - apparently typical older vdub problem. one heating system ran off the oil? so…i'd get puffs of black oil coating the inside of the windshield. finally had it hauled away for scrap after it completely died. i think it lasted me about a year tho.

second vehicle - 02 tacoma 4x4 quadcab. she's my baby, and i love her :heart:

My first car was a 1963 Ford Fairlaine 500. The rest have been toys.

Just the truck I have now…

'82 Toyota 4x4 pickup
I basically just bought it to beat on and go 4x4ing…
Now that I live in the city I don't really have much use for a piece of shit so I am getting rid of it within the next 2 months.
burns oil so bad it guzzled a tank about every 500 KM. I solved that problem with heavier oil though…

The odo rolls over at 100K, with the oil consumption and overall quality I would say the 18,000 belongs with a 4 or 5 before it.

In:
1996 -1984 baby blue VW Rabbit, 4dr Auto 1.8L FI. I paid $1800 for it from some woman who's daughter owned it, but had died. I had some sweet home stereo speakers in the trunk. Sold for $1700 to buy

1998 -1987 Merkur XR4Ti Russo Red, 5spd, sun roof, 2.3L Turbo, $3500 These things were super quick, and RWD. I blew the headgasket, and the head was cracked, took forever to get it fixed and like $1800, but then it had a ported head, Ford Motorsport Roller cam kit, some intake work, 3in DP, and Borla Dual Exhaust, and was much faster. I had it pinned in 5th going to Kelowna once, they were speed limited to 145mph. It kinda shook abit. Had some Merkurism electrical problems and the battery kept dieing, I sold it to a guy that wanted a racer project for $3000.

May 2001 -2001 Wolfsberg VW Jetta 1.8T 5spd, sunroof, heated seats etc. $30k, I had just finished school at BCIT and got a job so I bought a fancy car, gave it to my mom about 3 months later.

Sept 2001 -2001 Ford Tauras 24v v6, free, Stupid Job now wanted me to drive the company car. It did have a spoiler though. Drove it to Ontario, and Sask.

2003 -came back to school and had no car.. :(

2003 - got Granny's 1993 Nissan Sentra, 4dr, 1.6L auto, rocketship, free.

2006 - had to give granny's car to my cousin and got this pimp wagon, $3000, now has 209,000m, runs great, cheap on gas, good in snow/dirt/etc, Heather and I drove to Calgary last Christmas with no Stereo, that wasn't very fun..

Is there a Vancouver in Taiwan?! I had no idea!!

Nothing sums up my life's achievements like my stuffed corpse, suplexing a cougar.

That's be a 411 for the record. 911's are Porsche's Judy. Although it would have been a helluva deal for $300 ;)
