Let's be clear that I got this in spring of 2005 before they became totally ubiquitous:




Before this, my trusty Volvo wagon that I was heartbroken to let go:



Before that, my 1970 Chevelle Malibu, which I wasn't enough of motorhead to maintain or appreciate. And was appropriately stolen in fucking West Hollywood:



And before that:



That's right. Fucking KNIGHT RIDER.

Dang, that Malibu was awesome! The KITT car is cool too.

I'll ignore that first one.

Alot of smaller UK hatchbacks are small like this. Its awesome when you're driving around looking for a parking space and other peoples cars are too big but mine isn't.

you went from a '70 Malibu to a Volvo?

you are an enigma wrapped in a riddle...

I used to have a 79 Malibu - with a 4-on the floor transmission - not nearly as sexy

Let's just say that the Malibu was a bit out of character for me. I just wanted to get an old car when I came to California because the weather made it less of a hassle to have one. That was the first one I looked at.

The Volvo wagon, indie rocker cliche or not, is really more my style, and if I could buy a well running old-school one, I would again. I hate the rounded-off newer ones, they look like every other fucking wagon.

Also, I think the newer xB model is awful, too. They had a distinct look before that sold really well. Why change it?

a nissan pulsar, can't remember the year.



this is essentially it, but mine is a two door model, and it has a spoiler at the back.

heaviest car ever, and because of that i love love love driving it, since it still goes like a rocket and handles like a dream. plus i can get like 270 miles to a tank of gas on city driving, whilst i drive like a maniac.


however i mainly find myself in one of these.

Yeah, I like muscle cars, but I could never own one. I like my Civic because its good on gas and there's decent headroom for passengers. Plus, it's only a 4 cylinder, so it keeps me from getting a speeding ticket.

Yours was a sweet ride, though.

'09 Black Scion tC. I call it "The Funk," mainly due to the fuzzy dice.

Yeah, it was a sad day. They never found it.

You're a 'stang loyalist, I see. Which is admirable, but:
