'80 Honda Prelude (I was 16)
'82 Toyota Supra (It was a recovered steal for a good price)
'86 Toyota Celica
'79 Honda Accord (post divorce)
80's Acura Legend
'90 Acura Integra
'92 Acura Legend
'99 Ford Expedition (married w/child - I hate mini vans)
'94 Lexus LS400 (parents old car, gift to me, Expedition went to DH)
'01 Lexus RX300

That's SO MANY cars. Why have you had to buy so many cars? Shouldn't Hondas/Acuras and Toyotas last longer than a few years? (OK, I guess the car before the 1979 Honda Accord went to your ex-wife, but why didn't the Acuras last longer?)

OK, OK, I'm unusual. I've only had one car - my 1988 Honda Civic, and I'm already 30 years old. It's just been too darned good to replace, so it's a testament to Honda quality. I didn't realize how good I've had it until I read horror stories about Chevy Vegas, Ford Pintos, Yugos, AMCs, and other stinkers.
