1998 Honda Civic DX Hatchback - Pearl Amethyst? - Boooooring - I needed something cheap when my Subaru was about to die (literally, I don't think I could have made it home from the dealer that night)
2002 VW Passat GLX - Silverstone Grey - I love this car but I really want a BMW...probably next year
I've decided that I want a new car every 3 years or so. With the success I've had in my career this is something that I've decided I deserve. I don't like to worry about fixing my car or things like that. I guess it's the cost of piece of mind and I'm willing to pay it.
54 MG --BRG, highSchool grad. present i stupidly drove to Death (only used car on list)
67 Triumph Spitfire --white, great fun...many miles, sold it when drafted
71 (Triumph Tiger) --'blue', sold it when i got released ... having survived the army, i got all risk-averse
73 Volvo POS --lemon yellow
75 Toyota pickup --puke brown, sold it when i decided it didn't have enough power for city driving... great machine for backpaching.
84 Toyota Supra --black, loved this car, but at 280k she started to fall apart
99 Bimmer 328 --ugly grey... & decided i was too old for stick shift
01 Bimmer 330 --dark blue... first AutoTrans.... expect we'll be together many more years.
