My daily is a 95 S-10 pickup with a 92 LT1 Corvette engine.
My weekender is a 70 Mustang fastback with a four barrel 351 Cleavland painted pearl white and blue. I used the 350 Shelby theam on the paint job but instead of the side strip reading GT350 like the Shelby did it reads GT 351C.
My retirement car is a 69 Fastback Mustang Mach 1 only taken out for very special events and shows.

During the week - 1995 Nissan Primera (cheap, it works)
During the weekends - 1997 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV - (3" mandrel free flow with no cat or resonator, massive HKS intercooler and intake, raised the boost level a little bit)

My ex loved being an evo passenger, loved the 'stomach being left behind' feeling.

hmm.. Right now the only thing we own (it's not even mine, it's my wife's) is a '95 Oldsmobile 88 Royal.. It's a boat.. and it's ours.

But there's other stuff we can drive around here:
- '97 Dodge Caravan
- '00 Chevy Malibu
- '98 Mazda B4000
- '06 Ford F150 (Company truck)
And to play around with:
- Arctic Cat 500
- Arctic Cat H1 650
- '95 Yamaha Maxim 700

and some bicycles

Crazy miles on that man, i think its time to change your car even though you got it for free, id advise you to sell it after at least 5k more miles while you can and get something efficient. Dont buy any more PC parts until you save for a decent replacement. You did get it from your dad which is good so it was free and perhaps you might even be able to make money off of it depending if you are going to get a second hand car. Get something less than 120k miles.

Elantra GT 2002
Got it in 2004 to present
67000km to now 170000km

Besides regular things such as brakes and a baring the car has been flawless.

Cons = RUST !!! Rust in my door that screws up my window rail.
Besides that, not once has it ever failed to start or stopped running.

As of right now I decided to keep the truck. I am now holding a job, at GameStop (Game retailer for all you guys from overseas ;)) so right now it's worth keeping. It only needs a catalytic converter, and 4 tires. Currently 213,300 miles, on body, and engine. Transmission and clutch have 40,000.

I won't win races, I won't get nice mpg's, I won't impress the women with my sexy car, but I also have the opportunity to save for a nicer car. :)

I'm thinking Camaro SS or Shelby GT500.
Any ideas? I love driving and I love cars. Whatever I get will never be resold.

I mean for a first sports car. I LOVE muscle cars though, so I'll definitely own several throughout my lifetime!

1995 Jaguar Sovereign 3.2

130,900 miles

Fantastic car! Not the fastest car but it is comfortable!
Great for my granny, she can get in and out easily!

A great cruising car, comfy, solid, quick when needed, surprisingly cheap (relatively speaking!) maintenance.
 
2003 Civic EX, hey I'm still in HS OK :p Mom's car, but I drive it more than here now lol.

When I can get my own car, probably going to be some thing like a Shelby SS or may be what ever Tesla comes up with then.
