First of all, let me preface this by saying that I squarely blame TMF for the knowledge that I will never be able to compile a list as impressive as that of SRHCB, due to the fact that I am now, ahem, financially responsible.
That being said, here it is in all it's glory:
1987 Ford Mustang - Base model with the 2.3L four-banger aka the Gutless Wonder. Blessing in disguise to a 16 year-old male. Don't ask me how I used to fit three teenage guys in the backseat. Mom drove it into the ground at 150k when I went off to college.
1999.5 Nissan Pathfinder (current) - College graduation gift from the parents (hey, I paid [still paying] for the actual college part). Wished I waited the 7 months for the '01 model with the 240-hp VQ, but she's been good to me and has gotten me through many a Lake Tahoe snowstorm. Runs like new at 66k and because of its utility, it will stick around even after I get a sports car. And yes, I have taken it offroad. ;)
Down the road: used Infiniti G35 coupe or BMW 330ci, although the new Mustang GT sure is grand.
