I've been wondering about this since participating in the FAQ:

What is the age of the FAQ 2002 owner and how many cars did you own before your first 02?

I'll start it off: I'm 42 and have owned (8) cars before I bought my 73.

66 Sunroof Beetle

75 Std. Beetle

81 Civic 4-door

88 Accord 4-door

92 Accord 4-door

71 VW Beetle (still have)

2000 Accord V6 Coupe (still have)

2002 M-B C240 Sedan (still have)

OK, I'll try this out.

(1) '71 Ford Maverick

(2) '81 VW Rabbit S

(3) '89 Toyota Corolla

(4) '01 Ford Taurus wagon

(5) '75 2002

That's not to mention various others my wife had: '86 Honda Civic Hatchback, '98 Saturn SL-1, and briefly, an '86 Mercury Marquis inherited from my grandfather.

ooooops ---- 49 y.o.

Might have something to do with your "backyard" spray booth antics. I applaud your wrenching capabilities.

I turned 30 last month. So far I've had................

1. 1988 Ford Tempo. Complete POS! Turned me off to American cars forever!

2. 1989 Nissan 300ZX. Loved the car! Ran it into the ground. :(

3. 1987 Cadillac Eldorado. Loner from my Dad. It was PINK!!! Hated it.

4. 1990 Nissan 240SX. Loved it. Gave it to my girl and she loved it too. Sold it in April of this year. Will buy another one before I take a dirt nap.

5. 1998 Nissan 200SX. Mega economy car. Got me 38 MPG on a trip to Vegas last year. Love it. Begging for suspension upgrades.

6. 1976 BMW 2002. When I bought it it had a nice interior, working A/C, looked nice and was 100% stock. Now the interior is stripped, A/C gone. Ireland suspension, Bilstein sports. Corners like a MOFO! Who needs a shrink when you have this!!! Will never sell.

7. 1987 Nissan 300ZX. My Dad's old Z. Soon to be mine!!

I must have owned 50 cars or more...

Camaros, Cougars, Z cars, pick up trucks, Mercedes, VW, Volvos, Buicks, and a bunch od bimmers.

I have never owned a Toyota, or a Porsche. (Or any of the exotics) I hope to stay away from Toyotas, but I will eventually acquire a 911.
