Wow. How much $ do you people spend? Some posts look like an Excel spreadsheet !

Before listing my cars. Allow me to share this sorrow.

2005 Lexus LS 430 (Mum's car. RIP on 28th June, 2018). A truck side-swiped the car when changing multiple lanes without indication and forced it to rub against the shoulder barrier of an expressway. I feel terrible for the car. Coupled with the elegant colour of satin cashmere, this car is probably one of the most beautiful on this planet. Unlike America, most Lexus LS targeting the Asia market are equipped with executive seating. The amazing massage is the best refreshment after school 😊.

Car was totaled, the other driver was later arrested for reckless driving and fleeing from the scene. Instead of one year of imprisonment which ends in the blink of an eye, he should be executed by guillotine in my opinion for damaging such an elegant car. A few months later, mum has received some compensation from the logistic company that hired him. I wonder if that @@@@hole has re-applied for a license to drive again.

May you rest in peace. You have become a very important part of my life. Thank you for your service.

I really want one of these, or a Mazda MX-5 Miata, but they are really bad cars for winter driving around here.

My next car (postponed indefinitely) will likely be something with all wheel drive and more ground clearance. I never thought we could be a one-car family in this car-required area, but that is the only silver lining in this pandemic. One car is more than enough, and it is a wonderful way to save money.

Pretty incestual Ms. M. Pretty incestual.

(Incest is fine though, as long as you keep it in the family)

One of the big issues was the one we had was brand new but had couple of 100 miles on it because it was driven to some event by a Toyota guy, so they had changed the tires to summer tires. Which looked nicer but not so great in the rain.

Here are the cars in 2015 at my dads san jose home. Bought them a couple of weeks apart 😔

The guy never taught you to drive stick? Hope you dumped him. 😂
I only agreed to stick shift because he said he would teach me. But knew it was a bad sign when he kept insinuating that I would damage the car. Jack ass 😂

Kidding about the jack ass part, he was really sweet but we ended it a while back.

When I turned 15, I worked at great america theme park. Just remember waiting hours for my dad to pick me and my cousin up after work. When he came I would be pissed and he would try to make it up to us. Then after I got my liscence, I think 15 or 16 he just gave me the Camry. So I didnt have to rely on him.

Pretty sure I wasn't legally allowed to drive unaccompanied until 18, but still did 🤔

Lesson learned? Never ever ever should one significant other teach the other how to drive. Not ever. That's why they invented driving schools.

btw- i think you wrecked because there is some weird looking polka-dot slime on the pavement!

I would sue.

And many were ugly, but I enjoyed them all...
Speaking of wrecking, I've certainly wrecked a few... was trying to recall how the cars on my list were disposed of...

1965 Chevrolet Impala
As a teen, bought it off a friend for $90. Only paid him $10 at the time. Did a road trip to Santa Cruz where the engine blew up. Limped into a gas station and sold the car to the attendant for $15. Never paid my friend off.

1971 Honda 350
Lost my job, couldn't make payments, and the transmission broke. A friend in the military took the bike on base and blew it up on the firing line. I reported the bike stolen and the insurance paid it off.

1964 C-series International Pickup truck
This was the coolest pickup in the world because no one else had one. Hit a tree while driving too fast on ice.

1974 Norton 850 Commando
Last model year before Norton went out of biz. Rode it across a few rivers trying to get to a hot springs where all the hippie chicks were skinny dipping. Warped the heads. Later sold the bike as a basket case (they're easier to take apart than to put back together).

1976 Honda 750
Broke down in the middle of nowhere. Left it. Drove a pickup back there at night to retrieve it with a friend. Dropped acid. Loaded up the bike. Ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere. I laughed about that. My friend did not. He siphoned the gas out of the bike to continue on. Backed into another car at a stop light in some town after missing the gas station, in the middle of the night. Sold the bike to a wrecker for peanuts. Other than that it was a great experience.

1977 Mazda Rx7
Ran out of money and had to sell it. Used a power drill to roll back the odometer (I was young and stupid). Took months to sell.

1965 Volkswagen Beetle
Engine blew up on a mountain pass

1967 Volkswagen Beetle
Engine blew up. Rebuilt the motor as a racing engine. Had the pieces of the engine laying on the kitchen floor for months. Roommates loved that. Built a 1776cc motor with Cima forged pistons and counter-weighted crank. Fast as hell. Left car parked overnight in some industrial area. It rained, flooded the street, and the water flooded the engine via the exhaust pipe. That was the end of that.

1975 Toyota Celica
1991 Honda Accord
Sold the Celica to upgrade to a brand new Honda.

1989 Harley FLHTC full dresser
Sold the bike and the '91 Accord to scrape up the down payment on a house. Did 20% down on a quick qualifier loan.

1976 Volvo 240 Station Wagon
Bought this car from two Israeli tourists who lived in a kibbutz. They bought the vehicle on Florida, drove it to California, and I spotted it on Lombard St. with for sale signs on it. The couple used the money for airfare home. Found out later that this was one of Volvo's worst years. Ridiculously underpowered. BUT, I drove this after selling the Harley and the G20, waiting for the loan to come through on the house.

1993 Infiniti G20
Still driving the POS Volvo and waiting for the home loan to come through. Walked in to the local Infiniti dealership just to drool over what my next car would be. The wouldn't let me leave. Made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I told them I didn't want a hit on my credit report until the loan came through. They let me drive the car off the lot without the paper work being signed. I mean literally, on my own recognizance, no signatures, no collateral, no nothing.... they just handed me the keys and told me to come back when the loan was approved. Absolutely true story.

1985 Volkswagen Westfalia
Lots of great adventures with my honey in this machine. The oft repeated slogan was "The west is the best, and the westie is the bestie". Pretty lame. We broke up so I sold the van out of remorse.

1989 Honda Civic
Emergency stop-gap car. Too small for my 6'2" frame.

1992 Honda Accord
Wrecked this on a bad curve. There was a depression in the pavement on the apex of the curve that Caltrans would routinely fill in with blacktop. One day Caltrans ran out of pavement and used pea-sized gravel instead. Me and a half dozen other motorists over the period of a few weeks slid out on the curve and wrecked.

1984 Dolphin Motorhome
A sad story. Sold to a friend for $500. Market value was $1500. Registration was way expired. I thought the vehicle was non-op'd, but was mistaken. Friend showed up later to report he had to pay $700 at the DMV for the tags! I reached into my pocket and paid him back the $700. I had double-triple assured him there would be no DMV surprises. HOWEVER, given that I was now net negative $200 on the sale I assumed my friend would hand me back $200. Right??? He didn't. Oh well. Another life lesson.

1984 Toyota Pickup (2WD / limited slip)
Wouldn't pass smog. Bye bye.

2003 Chevrolet Aveo (lemon)
I had been driving unreliable jalopies and needed a car I could rely on. I researched for the least expensive new car sold, and up came the Aveo. Did a loan, not a lease. The damn car wouldn't start half the time! Chevy dealer was super cool, but couldn't fix it. GM refused to take the car back under the lemon law. I hired a lemon law attorney (at no charge to me) and the following day GM took the car back and refunded me in full. Ha ha ha.

1993 Toyota Corolla Sedan
Broke down on a long trip. It was easier to just run down to the Toyota dealer and grab a fresh one. Picked up the 2016 Prius.

1994 Toyota Corolla Wagon
Daughter crashed it.

1996 Toyota Corolla Wagon
Still in the garage

2016 Toyota Prius
Chevy dealer bought it off me even though it was leased, in order to get me into the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt

----
I honestly can't remember the circumstances of selling the rest on the list.

My last two cars were totaled, but not by me. My '06 Chevy Cobalt got totaled when my roommate drove it drunk while I was out of town dealing with the death of my grandmother. My '12 Kia Forte, which I loved, got totaled when a 16-year-old jackass rear-ended me at 50 mph.

I bought a lot of used junk starting when I turned 15. Seems like I always needed a car when I was the most broke. First Brand New car was in 1994.

  1. 1976 Chevy Luv Pick-up - Bought Used and abused in 1984 for $75 - Drove it until it died, transmission, 1986 over 200,000 miles
  2. 1964 Buick Special Wagon - Bought Used and abused in 1986 for $150 - Drove it until both engine mounts broke, replacements were not available. Chained engine down and continued to drive. Entered in demolition derby in 1988 - Destroyed, won second place. Unknow mileage, speedometer never worked.
  3. 1977 Buick Regal - Bought used in great condition 1988 - Drove around for many years, crushed by a dump truck after an ice storm in 1991 Around 140,000 miles on it
  4. 1987 Chrysler LeBaron - Bought used in great condition in 1991. Drove it until it it was totaled by a tree fall during a storm in 1994. Can't remember the mileage on it.
  5. 1984 Subaru Hatchback - Bought Used and abused in 1994 for $400. Got rear ended in 1998 by a brand new Lincoln Navigator with less than 500 miles on it. Totaled my car and the car in front of me that it knocked me into.
  6. 1994 Chevy Cavalier Z24 Bough Used in 1998 - Worst car I ever owned, had all kinds of electrical issues. Car was driven cross country by original owner multiple times a year in the 4 years he owned it. Always had dogs in it. Car was trashed inside. Sold it a year later, could not del with constant electrical issues. Teenager bought it from me and totaled it a few weeks later.
  7. 1994 Plymouth Voyager - Bought New - First new car purchase - Family Car - Traded it in 2002 well over 250,000 miles on it.
  8. 2000 Kia Rio - Bought New - Traded in for new Rio in 2006. Liked the car had A/C issues so I got out of it before the A/C died completely
  9. 2002 Kia Sedona - Bought New - Family car replaced the Plymouth Voyager. Eventually became my daughters first car.
  10. 2006 Kia Rio - Bought New - Replaced my daily car the 2000 Rio
  11. 2011 Nissan Versa - Bought New - Still own
  12. 2018 Hyundai Sata Fe Sport - Bought New - Still own
First 6 cars on my list cost me under $6,000.00 total for all. 4 of them were beaters.

Out of the 12 I have purchased only three were totaled not counting the one entered in a demolition derby. None of the accidents were my fault.

The Plymouth Voyager was hit 3 times in 2 months when it was just 6 months old. All minor fender benders all while I was stopped. Funny all three people were insured by State Farm. They fixed the 3 damaged corners and paid for the entire car to be repainted.

18) 2015 Toyota Corolla S

I had a Saturn Ion Redline, came with a factory supercharger that they were also using in Saab (turbo form) vehicles. Talk about a sleeper little car. I remember a couple of dopes in a Firebird bottlenecking traffic on purpose. They'd speed up as anyone was trying to pass them and stay even with the car next to them. I watched them perform the same maneuver to about 3-4 cars, and lulled them into a false sense of security. As soon as I saw an opening, already had it in the right gear (manual transmission) and I was out like a raped ape. They tried to recover, but their manual transmission took an eternity to downshift. Never been more proud of a small car with plastic doors.
