Past personal cars:

1987 Cadillac Sedan DeVille, HT4100 aluminum head engine. Very comfortable, reasonably fast despite low horsepower when it ran well, best built-in diagnostic system ever made. Suffered from aging, neglect, unreliable engine, and dumb kid owner.

1997 Pontiac Grand Am SE V6 3.1. Did not fit me, my knees and elbows always hurt after driving it. Suffered from I hated it due to fit and lameness, and from dumb kid driveritis -- if one pedal wasn't on the floor, both were. Blew the engine at ~130k, replaced it, was angry for a long time. Car redeemed itself when I no longer drove it and let my aunt drive it, and eventually sold it to her.

2002 GMC Sierra 4x4 extended cab regular bed 5.3l: Suffers from occasional minor gremlins. Can do ANYTHING. Never lets me down. Gets me there fast, gets heavy loads anywhere, drags the camper up any mountain. Very comfortable.

1980 Buick Lesabre 4.1 V6: Suffers from age, neglect, and low budget. Very comfortable, not very fast. Very light for its size -- a mere 3500 pounds for a yacht. Inherited from Grandpa who bought it new. I will eventually put the money and effort into this car that it deserves.

2008 VW Rabbit 2.5 I5, 5 speed manual: Finally I have a manual transmission. My FE car. Surprisingly comfortable. Suffers from overengineering that causes minor annoyances. Chosen mainly because I needed a dependable, cheap car with no BS and no waiting for the right car to be for sale. A good temporary car until my next car, which is...

2010 Camaro V6 6-speed manual: Going to be very impressive, with power, comfort, efficiency, and price all very good.

Work trucks:
1997 Ford Econoline 250 - overloaded, beat, crap.
1997 Ford Ranger 4x4 4.1 V6 - Beast that couldn't handle loads very well even with its heavy-duty options, and the 4wd didn't work well
2002 Ford Econoline 250 extended-length - Was very nice when it was brand new.
1997 F350 dually 12' stake body 15,000 pound dumptruck: Currently for sale.
This sig may return, some day.

'96 Dodge Grand Caravan (received free from the in-laws)
'02 Chrysler PT Cruiser (loved this car, but got crap mileage)
'02 VW Jetta Wagon TDI (sold when expecting our third, who is now 6 mos. old)
'07 Hyundai Entourage (space for the whole family)
'90 Toyota Celica ST (because commuting at 16-18MPG costs way too much)

I've also had a lot of time driving a few other cars from near family members, but those are the ones I've owned.

Unrelated note: If anyone looks at my gaslog and sees the drop I was speculating about, I believe I've found the cause. The e-brake was dragging. I'm the kind of person who sets it every single time I park anywhere, so now I need to unlearn that habit (as it isn't worth the $300 I was quoted to have it fixed--and as it stands right now, it isn't dragging, and it will brake if I pull up on it, so it is now just reserved for actual emergencies, rather than being the parking brake).
