All your car lists will pwn mine. I'm in college and still on my first car.

I drive a... (drum roll please)

'94 Plymouth Acclaim

It's a sweet ride. I get all of the ladies with it.

Not really. The cool thing about it is that it was my grandma's old mail car for the rural route. Once she retired she had no use for the car so gave it to me a few years back when i turned 16. It has over 175,000 miles on it right now and the paint is falling off the sides. Apparently, it was a bad year for the paint job on this car. Oh well...

It doesn't get bad gas mileage (I haven't really calculated exact), and I'll take free any day.

That year Chrysler had a recall for paint issues. The paint would peel off of the primer. A friend of mine had one, and got it repainted for free. I don't know if you can still get it repainted under the recall as this was several years ago.

Wow. My list is a lot shorter than many of these.

1990 GMC Suburban. MPG = bad. Traded it in for:
1996 Honda Civic

Family cars:
1990 Dodge Dynasty. Got rid of this when the fuel injector rail started leaking fuel onto the exhaust pipes.
2004 Honda Odyssey

I loved those cars because they made tires for my Buick cheap. Those cars came from the factory with P195/75/R14 Goodyear Invicta GAL's with the wide double whitewall. Of course, that's the same size tire as is on my Buick. I bought those tires exclusively for years until I could not get them anymore. The last set wore out last year, and it was too expensive for fat whitewalls, so its riding on "normal" whitewall tires now. Its kinda sad, those fat whitewalls looked good on the Buick.

1989 to 1992, 1976 Ford Country Square Station Wagon 400 block 10 mpg City and 12 Highway.

1992 to 1998 1980 Olds Cutlus Supreme Right nasty little experimental 8 cylinder 264 block. Should have done a lot better in gas mileage. 12 City and 14/15 Highway.

1998 to 2007 1987 Pontiac Grand Pri RWD. Car should have got 20 mpg avg but I was lucky to avg 13 mpg. Should have walked away from the car when the owner told me he used 20W40 for the oil. I didn't know any better at the time.

Current 1989 Cadillac Eldorado 20 mpg on a 225k engine. EPA number is 18 old and 17 new.
