I had a 1999 Chevy 1/2 ton from 2003 to 2009
I do have a 2009 Dodge Ram 1/2 ton sitting outside currently
I also have a 2016 Ram Eco-diesel sitting outside

First to last (don't worry- most of you don't even know what it is- grew up in Europe):


78 VW Polo 1.0
75 Ford Capri 2.3L V6 (like US Ford Caprice)
75 Ford Taunus 1.6L
80 Ford Taunus 2.0L V6
87 Ford Sierra 2.3L Diesel (like Fusion- because of diesel worst car I ever had)
89 Ford Scorpio 2.0L (like Taurus)
91 Ford Sierra 2.0L (survived 3 months- drunk driver hit me)
91 Opel Omega 2.0L (after 6 month I quit repairing, pressurewashed it and sold it)
93 VW Passat 2.0L (most boring vehicle I ever owned)
93 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3L (I know what some say- but I loved it)
75 BMW 2002 tii (a rocket!!!!)
79 Opel Kadett ( can't break it- drove the engine tight twice- still was running)
87 VW Golf 1.6L (it drove....but that's about it)
79 Opel Kadett (rust...rust...rust...gone...- can't even count the tons of repair-pieces I welded in)
95 Opel Kadett (the never running one- gave up and kicked it to the curb)
97 VW Transporter 2.5 Diesel (no joke- I drove it with salad oil from Aldi)
98 Ford Sierra 1.6L (needed something to drive)
97 VW Golf 1.6L (same- just a runnaround thing)
79 Lincoln Town Car 5.0 (loved that sucker- got destroyed by a bus)
86 Jeep Cherokee 4.0
94 BMW 540i ( another one I loved- got destroyed by a Nissan Armada)
74 GMC Sierra Grande 350 (should've kept it as yard truck- it was awesome!)
2006 Charger 3.5L (That's where I started loving cars again)
2007 Dodge RAM 1500 4.7L ( my first truck- loved it)
2014 Charger 3.6L (my wife's)
2014 RAM 1500 Crew Cab Hemi (my current one)



I know- the vehicle looking cheesy, but see it this way- I'm a mechanic and I bought them cheap, fixed them up while I was driving and sold them with a little extra into my pocket....to pay for my somewhat expensive hobby. Until I quit riding bikes, I didn't care much for cars.

And there was several bikes....nothing special- except the last two- but that was not the question...

Lol @ this.

Yeah. Let's see. Toyota (78), Chevy (83), Toyota (86), Ford (94), Chevy (00), GMC (04), GMC (08), Ram (12), and Ram on order (17). And I liked 'em all. Several of them passed 200k and one cracked 300k. I've never bought a car (inherited a few)! But I want a '67 - '69 Cougar at some point.

2016 F150. Made so much wind noise it hurt my partially deaf ears. Knuckle draggers in the Ford shop could not fix it.

historically I've been a GMC guy. I've had a couple of Chevys as well, never a Ford pickup, but did have some Dodges back in the 95-97 years. I traded a Toyota Tundra 1794 for my '16 LongHorn, the only thing I miss about the Toyota is the blind spot and cross traffic radar. Sure don't miss the 15mpg. No list here, I'm at #98. 'nuff said.

2013 Ram 1500 (Thunderhorse is my first vehicle)
2015 Durango SXT 220 CI.

I drove dad's Honda in college after he got his Ram, he let me use it and sold it when I bought my truck. We are selling the wife's Hyundai (hopefully this week so it will drop off the insurance before its due), but its titled to her. The Ram and Durango are the only ones I've owned.

Before this Ram I briefly endured ownership of a 2015 Jeep Cherokee, a deeply regrettable experience I wouldn't wish on somebody I hated.

Prior to that I had this WJ Overland which decided to strand us as far away from home as possible when its engine digested itself.

I also had this rusted Saturn at the same time.

Before that I had this Blazer I put on a live front axle (coils/radius arms)

Before that I had a 1992 Tempo that ran on CNG (carpool solo + $0.79/gal fuel)

That was preceded by a Trooper and a Bronco 2 and a Montero , ... a '74 Duster, an 01 Forester, an '84 Accord, a '99 Hyundai Accent (first brand new car) before which I had this Triumph TR7 and finally, before that my first car was a very, very heavily worn 1981 Ford Escort

This is a fun thread, maybe it should be a sticky.

I know there are a couple dudes here with Vipers, and at least one with an orange '71 Hemicuda. I've seen the pics!
