Mark 3 Toyota Supra.

Sweet.  I had an '86.5.  It did indeed feel big and unwieldy, but I sure did love it just the same.

Currently I'm ponying around town in a 2000 Mustang GT.  Some day I'll clean it up a bit and take a picture or two.
*sigh*  Someday...

I has no car.  I has King County Metro.  But they never let me drive 'em, no matter how nicely I ask.  ^^    (Eh, just as well, who wants to drive a giant-ass bus.  Even with those special zones they get, they must be hell to park.  Plus you have to stop and pick up all those weirdos who expect you to give them rides all over the city.  I hear the pay and benefits are really good, though.)

Used to drive a 5-speed 1995 Toyota Camry, which belongs to my parents.  Basic sedan, nothin' special, but it was nice when it was new.  It is a testament to the endurance of Toyota vehicles that that sucker put up with a family roadtrip, two teenagers learning how to drive on it (and one or two crashes), plus months and years of a 40-mile daily commute in rush hour traffic ... it's gone through several sets of brake pads, three new clutches and the latest one is weak now, though.  Blame my brother, he's tough on cars.  Up until it was left in a garage for a year, it still started reliably and ran jut fine.  It is remarkably patient with people who abuse it.

Over 12+ years and 180k miles, it's degraded from shiny new to more or less a "beater," but I love it still.  It sits all alone now, waiting until somebody goes to the trouble of selling it.  (My parents eventually bought a new car without disposing of the Camry first.)  If I had the money and the need for a vehicle, I'd buy it off my parents and fix up the worn-out bits and treasure it forever.

Oscuro's right.  If you have a V-8 Cutlass from '81, it should have an Olds 307 in it, or possibly a Chevy 305.

1993 Saturn SL - goldish color, in really decent shape, only 72,000 miles (ftw!!), has sleeper potential (eventually ^_^;)

I'd post pics in the appropriate area, but unfortunately I'm at college in Iceberg...I mean Rexburg, ID and it's not much to look at right now.

Well, the signifigant cars I've owed were these two.  all the others were (to me) not worth mentioning.

1969 Olds Cutlass ragtop.  Red with a black top and interior.  Hurst 4 speed, Edelbrock mid-rise intake with a holly 650 dual feed (after market).  Hooker headers, Ladder traction bars, re-worked heads and a slightly radical cam.  It was a 350 cid wedge.  I cried when I had to sell it

Current ride is a 2005 green Mustang Deluxe coupe.  It's the 200HP 6 with  a few minor adjustments to the chip, but I'm going to drop a supercharger on it soon.  That should get me up to 300+ HP.  Ah, I do love drivin in Arizona Smiley  Lots of open, low traffic roads.

We bought a 1996 Plymouth Voyager minivan in 2000. Even though it's had transmission work twice, the engine is still good and the thing gets 23mpg in the city and 33mpg on the highway. It's not the prettiest thing to look at but it runs (and pretty well) and it's helping us at the gas pump, at least. It's tried to die a couple of times over the last few years but it's a trooper, we keep bringing it back. So, even if it ends up eventually being a 2nd car, I think we'll keep it till it blows up.

1999 toyota camry
its just a hand-me-down though.  If I ever do get a decent job, though its not really my first thing on my list, I maybe get another one.  However this one is fair...not great, but fair.
