Missed this thread the other day, but what the hey!
Never owned a car in Blighty, 'twas but a kid and then a dirt poor student.

'92 Toyota Tercel - Picked it up in Chicago and brought her back to St. Louis. Bought for $3k, ran for over 30k miles and sold for $2k. Unfortunately the previous owners had ragged the cooling system. Still $1k depreciation + $400 for a new radiator for over 30k of driving isn't to bad for '98-'00.

'96 Jeep Cherokee - Had/Have a thing for Jeeps. Loved the unreliable heap. Fuel pump would fail intermittently. Eventually forced to sell after the exhaust manifold cracked.

'97 Saturn SC2 - Wife's workhorse bought new and ran in to the ground over 7 years. Reliable but ugly as sin by the end.

'02 Jeep Liberty - Reliable, but spent waaay toooo much. Sold after having kids, gas prices shooting through the roof and facing a 60 mile round trip every day.

'04 Honda Accord - Wife's replacement for the SC2. Nice, if boring, car.

'06 Subaru Legacy GT - Bought new, improving my gas mileage (not hard to beat 16mpg), but needed something fun and this did the trick.

'08 Kia Sedona - New car purchased in the midst of the downturn. Our newer workhouse for hauling the kids (had 2 at that time, three now!).

'14 Dodge Challenger RT Plus / 6 Sp. Manual - Told to buy a car that fits three kids seats (the Subbie did not). Daddy needed V8 and 20" wheels.
