i think i can do it, although i'm not a car person and tend to forget what i'm presently driving....

17 yo ... 1984 delta 88 olds, blue ... bought it from my grandmother when it was about 5 yo. kept it 'til it 'til i went off to college.

19 yo ... 1989 geo spectrum, red ... bought it used, after it had been wrecked and fixed (full disclosure) ... car people will scoff, but this was a GREAT little car, at least while i had it ... sold it when it started making funny noises.

22/23 yo ... 1992 ford tempo, white ... also bought used, after wrecked and fixed (i knew this mechanic guy, see...) ... it was okay, nothing special. sold when i moved abroad.

27 yo ... 1994 nissan sentra, grey ... bought used, no major wrecks this time though ... still driving it 5 at 115k ... hoping it lasts a few more years.

next car: thinking about a refurbished beetle or kharman ghia ...

(unlike DBF) never a car snob,
