    Wow, I have had 15 cars, but then I realized I didn't actually pick the first two.

    Came back June 23 to fill in the data. I am 49.

    1. 1963 Cadillac Fleetwood Eduardo 4 door, medium blue-green, 17 mpg.
    2. 1971 Pontiac T37 (Tempest), sky blue, 17 mpg
    [attachmentid=9168]
    3. 1977 Pontiac Sunbird Hatchback, red metallic, 20 mpg
    4. 1980 Pontiac J200 Wagon, beige, 20 mpg
    5. 1985 Plymouth Voyager, tan and brown, 20 mpg
    6. 1981 Pontiac Sunbird Hatchback, white, 20 mpg
    7. 1989 Plymouth Grand Voyager LE, ice blue, dark blue, 21 mpg
    8. 1987 Hyundai Excel, non metallic red, 25 mpg
    9. 1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE, red metallic, 21 mpg
    10. 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan ES, silver metallic, 22 mpg
    11. 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan ES, Almond metallic, 22 mpg
    12. 2001 Toyota Corolla, metallic red, 28 mpg (My son drives all the time)
    13. 2005 Honda Accord LX Leather, Desert Sand metallic, 25 mpg
    14. 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid, Taffeta White, 37 mpg
    15. 2007 Toyota Prius package 5, Silver Pine Mica, 48 mpg

    I guess Microsoft doesn’t know about Toyota Prius. Of the fourteen cars above, Prius is the only one the WORD spell checker doesn’t recognize as correct.

    I'm 61 and have owned at least 40 vehicles including a slew of muscle cars when I was collecting them off and on. You gotta revise the scale for us ole pharts who have loved cars for decades.

    Well, I didn't pick my first three either, but I'm pretty certain I've owned at least 10. I can't keep track without writing them all down.

    5. VW Beetle Classic (European version, temporary car while I was in Europe)
    6. VW Golf (European, no US equivalent)
    7. 1983 Nissan Sentra (Bought after Porsche severely rear-ended.)
    8. 1985 VW Vanagon with Westphalia Package (Never should have sold it!)
    9. VW Rabbit (bought it used, cause the van wouldn't fit in garage)

    hmm...at 26 i've only owned two cars

    #1: 81 Chevy LUV stock model
    #2: 2007 Prius :D

    I should add that during college i didn't own a vehcile because there was no need to have one..why add another expense. Then when we lived in IA my finace's company provided him with a work vehcile..so at that point together we only owned one car (which is in his name) a 2000 S10...had to get a second car when he changed jobs and we moved...so now i get the new prius ;) and he's stuck with the S10..but we drive the prius everywhere we go together...
