Spade, I rescued it about two years ago for $900. It was impounded for parking tickets. Its fun to drive and i keep it as a back up car. Had 171k on it when i got it, 189k on it now. I have it running like a sewing machine. No smoke, tight compression. the 240sx is an automatic with a ungodly overdrive. Hope you find one, there are lots of them here in the Los Angeles area.

This will be a different sort of list than most I've seen since I just recently decided gas was getting too expensive to go fast. I started driving in 1990 and remember like it was yesterday how disappointed I was the day gas krept over $1.00 per gallon.

Listed first to last. Some of these were second or third cars used only during the summer months:

'72 Chevy Chevelle Malibu
'83 Chevy S-10
'85 Honda CRX HF
'86 VW GTI
'95 VW GTI VR6
'56 Chevy 210 2-door post, 283
'67 Pontiac Firebird 326
'96 Toyota Tacoma Extended cab V6 4WD
'61/'62 Triumph TR4 (there were enough parts left from 2 ratty cars to build 1 slightly less ratty car)
'01 Toyota Tundra Limited 4WD
'86 Porsche 911
'99 Audi A6 Avant Quattro
'01 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro
'03 Honda Odyssey
'05 Honda Civic LX

We currently own the two bolded vehicles but are working to put another european (911 or e30 BMW) in the garage for those days that I care about fun more than fuel economy.

This is a fun thread, its interesting reading others cars...

I will list mine by year.
1951 Ford Cabover F-6 dump truck
1951 Ford Cabover F-6 (future car hauler project)
1952 International L-160 grain truck
1963 Econoline Van (302/c4/9")
1965 Econoline Pickup (parts)
1969 Mustang Fastback (331 stroker)
1971 Mustang Convertable (351C)
1973 Ford Bronco (35s, 351w)
1976 Ford Bronco (parts)
1984 Mustang SVO (2.3T)
1987 Lincoln Mark VII (retired to parts)
1996 Mercury Villager
1997 F250 (Powerstroke)
1998 Ford Contour
1999 Kawasaki Ninja 500
2002 Mustang GT

No need to bold, this is a list of the current vehicles I have... It would take a long time to compile a list all the past vehicles, plus most of my past vehicles aren't that interesting, I have kept most of the good ones (I am in my mid 30's, so the first couple dozen cars I have had were mostly boring 80s cars). Oh, and the cars are mostly a hobby, I work a desk job so I have no way of justifying things like the old trucks except they are cool and fun to work on.
