'87 Taurus Wagon
You always love your first car right ...

'95 Plymouth Sundance
I hated this car, and I think it hated me. Tranny went out and I junked it.

'99 Mercury Sable
Loved that car till I cracked the block last year

'09 Ram 1500
Love it of course.

And here we are. I think I have the shortest list yet.

Well, let's see. I've been through so many vehicles so it's hard to say, but I'll keep mention what I have currently.

2003 Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi
This thing rocks. Bloody powerful engine, always been reliable and never had any issues. Maintenance is easy. Currently 120,000km.

2008 Ram 3500 6.7L Cummins
This thing is an absolute piece of s**t. I regret not purchasing a Ford Super Duty. It's so bad I wish someone stole it. Currently 73,000km.

2000 Audi A6 2.8L 30V V-6
This engine is very reliable but is very high maintenance and not easy to work on. Awaiting a supercharger for 300HP. Currently 260,000km.

2003 Honda CBR600
This is as reliable as Honda engines get. Easy maintenance and never a problem. Rides as well as it did when I first bought it. Currently 30,000km.

96 Dodge Avenger, wish I still had it, was wrecked too (notice a pattern)

Then I didn't drive for almost 2 years
When I got my work permit I got a
2000 Dodge Dakota V6 was wrecked also


Then since I bought a camper I need a bigger truck to pull it and had 3 kid on the way I got my Ram Yes I bought the camper first so I could get the bigger truck, oh yeah it was wrecked too


Then me and the wife have an 02 Caravan, the only car I have ever bought from a dealer, and it was not wrecked either. I am looking for a 2nd gen Durango though that is.
Forgot to mention that I also have a 2003 Buell Firebolt, and of course its blue. But I can't ride it till I get my full license back in August.

How do you like that Buell? Does it have the linked brakes like the Honda VFR? I always wanted to ride those. Pretty serious engineering Eric Buell put in his bikes.

No clue on the brakes. I only had it for a few weeks before I lost my license, its in my parents basement now waiting for me to bring it to my house this spring to get it ready for when I get my license back.

They are quick, and has instant throttle response. I put a D & D race exhaust on it too.LOUD!! $600 just for the muffler, not even the header pipe. I assume the 1200 would be even more powerful, mine is the XB9R

Damn? Lose your license, eh? Too bad. I've gone speeds on my CBR600 that would land me in jail. I had a friend with a CBR600 and a D&D exhaust it sounded like arse. But having a Power Programmer makes a huge difference. D&D exhausts are probably the loudest out there, they make Yoshis and Akras sound quiet.

I know that most Buells have the fuel stored in the top section of the frame, and some of them have linked brakes and even an automatic belt tensioner for the drivebelt. Frikkin' innovative designs. Don't care much for the new Rotax engined Buell though. I would've loved to see the Rotax/Bombardier engine continue on Aprilias RSV bikes.
