What vehicles have you owned?

#1 Post by DaveB » Sun Dec 20, 2009 10:04 am

I heard from my Dad yesterday that they'd bought a new car, and it got me thinking, I wonder how many I've owned. Well a few minutes with a spreadsheet and I had a list. Then I had to go back to it a half dozen times to add additional ones I'd forgotten. This'll give you some insights into my twisted personality... :lol:

YEAR - MAKE/MODEL - COLOUR - DESCRIPTION

1973 Mercury Capri Maroon - wrecked - My first car, Grandpa Howat assisted with financing much to Mom and Dad's dismay. My sister drove it into a house. (not the full story!)

1972 Chev Vega Blue - wrecked - It didn't like taking jumps

1968 Envoy Epic Blue - wrecked - A rust bucket - Destroyed during dirt track fun

1980 Toyota Tercel Beige - sold - Purchased new. 6 months in I didn't like the payment so sold to friend Rod

1973 Ford Pinto Hatchback Green/White - wrecked - Rod traded me this as part payment. Rear-ended and written off

1960 Karmann Ghia Yellow - sold - Restored and drove for years. Cal look lowered, loud

1971 VW Type 3 Wagon Orange - flipped - Owned for about a week. Got it cheap not running and repaired and traded for Caprice

1973 Chevrolet Caprice Black - flipped - Owned for about a month, then traded for VW Type 4

1974 VW Type 4 Wagon Silver - sold - Drove for about 6 months

1951 VW Split Window Beetle Blue - sold - Big expensive restoration project. Finally sold at close to break-even

1960 VW Bus 21 window Red/White - sold - Drove for about 3 years

1988 Land Rover Range Rover Green - sold - Now a 200tdi and daily driven - body rusted and sold on for parts

1994 Ford Contour - piece of shit money pit with no heat. Drove for 1 winter.

1988 Range Rover - Silver

1954 Land Rover 86" - Green - Vinny

1999 Land Rover Discovery II - Hilary - for parts

1997 Land Rover Discovery I - Monty - undergoing engine overhaul

Go ahead. Compile a list of your own. Reveal your automotive personality to us! I found it to be a good bit of fun thinking about the things I'd done and places I'd been in all the vehicles. There are some pretty interesting (at least to me :roll: ) stories that go with some of them.

And if you're interested in taking one of the Series 1 trucks off the list, just let me know...!

cheers, Dave

35 vehicles, and how old are you? Haha. :lol:

1968 Dodge Dart Slant 6 - First car - Sold for a profit after many youthful adventures.

1988 Volkswagen Fox Wagon - A much more practical car than Dart. Took me to the parts store to repair the Dart.

1983 Volkswagen GTI - The most enjoyable car I have ever owned. Regret selling...

1988 Nissan Multi AWD - Used extensively for skiing transit. Gift from my Uncle. Handled many "offroad" adventures. Electrical issues and rust made me junk it.

1984 Volkswagen GLI Coupe - Bought for pennies, and never driven. Sold for profit.

1978 Volkswagen Rabbit - Gas-mizer, and reliable.

1968 Land Rover SIIA 88" - First and only Land Rover owned. "Poor student" restoration. Sold to Land Rover friend.

1984 Volkswagen Rabbit Turbo Diesel - Gift, and parted out.

1976 Scirocco - Bought for pennies, and sold for a profit. Driven sparingly.

2002 Volkswagen Golf TDI - Still own - School transportation.

I guess I am not much better than you Dave. 21 years, 10 cars. Or five years driving, 10 cars?

Yikes...

Owned..

#4 Post by Glenn D. » Sun Dec 20, 2009 4:43 pm

Wow, a lot of VW's

I've had far fewer but I still have time....

Oldsmobile "Omega" ... early 80's? Owned it for a day, but brought I't back to the (reputable) dealer the next day after the floor fell out from rust!! and they took it back!!

1982 Toyota tercel.... Best car ever, sold it after 7 years for 500$ its still on the road around Vancouver. I miss it.

1988 Suzuki Samurai hard top...Awsomeness. just like a "Japanese Series landrover"
slow and noisy and awsome off road I sold it for 1000$ plust some work on the defender. I miss it too.

1962 Toyota publica... was a gift, a restoration project, but I didn't have a garage and since there are like 2 in north america, parts were rather scarce. I re-gifted it. Perhaps its still on the north shore...Hmmm. I miss all my old cars.

1986 land rover 90. converted to 200 tdi. sort of like a bigger samurai (same colour too) Still is my daily driver.

This list doesn't include 3 of my parents cars I crashed or the 6 vespa scooters (and one lambretta) I have owned.

Wow, I feel like a child compared to the number of vehicles you guys have owned... oh well, here is the list, for what it is worth.

1984 Honda Scooter (ya, I really drove one for a few months)
1978 Alfa Romeo Spider Convertible
1987 Pontiac Firebird
1992 Plymouth Laser
1996 Ford Explorer [sigh-this was the worst vehicle ever]
2002 Chevy Trailblazer
2002 Honda Civic SiR
2007 VW Eos Hardtop Convertible (Still Own)
2008 Land Rover LR3 (Still Own)

Hey, that list isn't too shabby afterall!

My favorite ALL time vehicle? The LR3. Easy and no question. Although the two convertibles come in tied for second because there is just something about a convertible. The huge glass panes and sun roofs in the LR3 are close... Actually, the laser was a great car and the fire-chicken was nice too. Darn. I liked them all. Well, maybe not the Ford so much...

I'm going to keep the VW and LR3 until they both simply can't be held together for another second... Although, I'm sure that I've said that about every car I've owned at some point or other (except for the Ford)...

Can't wait to see what the future holds.

Yes, I did have the VW flu for a few years, but it wasn't anywhere near as contagious as this Land Rover virus.

I've been driving for 33 years so I guess that helps put it in perspective, too.

I wonder how many of our old vehicles are still on the road?

1959 ? (1972) Austin Cambridge, drove around the yard and used for parts, never licensed by me
1961 MGA (1972) all time nicest driving car I’d love to have another (My wife isn’t going to read this is she?)
1957 Land Rover 107 PU (1974) wonderful truck, used it for chasing motorcycle buddies on the mountains and DD
1969 GMC ½ t PU 6 cyl 3 on the tree, very sensible. (1975)

1974 Harley Davidson 100 cc motocross bike (1975)
1976 Yamaha 400 XS (1977)
1977 Toyota Corolla (1977) 1st brand new car, worst car I ever had and it tried to kill me. It died after only 6 weeks. Lost a bundle from ICBC but got a good education about what scum insurance companies are. (Gee, do I sound bitter? I’ll never buy a Toyota again.) Only wreck I ever had.
1978 Yamaha 750 XS full dress (1979)
1960 VW bug (1980)

1976 Ford ¾ t 2 wd (1984)
1978 Chev ¾ t 4X4 (1986) Workhorse, just like the 76 but 2 years newer (still have it in the backyard, my son owns it now.)
1980 Pontiac something (really small) my wife’s car (1980)
1980? Crown Victoria (1985)
1988 Olds 98 (1990) most breakdowns of any car imaginable. Worst car ever in the Lemon Aid book.
1992 Subaru Loyal SW (1991) great little family car, wife crashed into a lake and it was never the same.
1988 Suburban ¾ t 4X4 (1995) wonderful big family tank. If you can afford the fuel, get one.

2002 Dodge Dakota 4X4 (2002) for sale still have it
1990 Mazda 323 (2005) son has it now
1978 VW Rabbit diesel (2006), awesome little car to drive, second fave to the MGA (Land Rovers excluded)
1992 VW Golf (2007) nice car but doesn’t hold a candle to the Rabbit for pleasure to drive.
2003 Honda Civic Si (2007) Still driving her
1996 Ford ¾ t 4X4 (2008) Farm truck still have it
1955 Land Rover 86 SW (2007) future project car

nowhere near the first list , but...


1973 VW Bug...first car. became the master of Ebrake 180's in that thing.
1974 Toyota Corolla. owned for 6 months in new zealand.
1976 Dodge Tradesman Van. Slant 6. Bought for 500 bucks, then drove to mexico in it 4 days later... :lol:
1985 Toyota Celica. Owned for 2 weeks, then the parking lot it was in flooded with sea water up to it's steering wheel. actually drove it to work before it all turned chernobyl.
1984 Toyota Supra. Awesome car...thing went like hell.
1979 BJ40 Landcruiser. Owned this a loooong time. gradually became a
1982 BJ42 Landcruiser, after a rebuild with the help of a
1985 BJ60 Landcruiser, that I drove home carefully so the frame didn't brake in half, and used the guts to build the 42 and parted the rest.
1987 BJ70 Landcruiser, still my DD, got it for a song from a dumb kid, who didn't understand glow plugs :lol: Finally fixing it up to be presentable.
1971 Fj40..project truck I gave up on and sold to a friend.
1975? Fj40 came as a package with previous 40, but traded to a buddy for a diesel for the other 40...
1976 FJ/BJ 45 Landcruiser Pickup, basically took parts from a 45, and combined it with the 40 I'd owned for years to make a diesel pickup. Sprung over, 35's, arb, turbo diesel. bigass money pit, put a ridiculous price on it, and 3 days later was cashing a cheque. guess I shouldn't complain, but I do kinda miss it.

196x 109. Unwanted half of a package deal, sold the hard top to DaveF,and the rest is now in Utah I think?
1971 109 5 door....much maligned. see sig... :lol:
1974 Porsche 914 2.0Le...I think it's mine...damn things been behind my barn for 5 years... :roll:
And last but not least,

1985 VW Scirocco. Converted to diesel, fuel turned waaay up, meth injection....goes like hell and needs fuel every two or three months.

This thread just reminded me of a conversation that was going around the table at the Christmas party that turned up a that most Land Rover owners have at one time or another owned a VW or a Volvo.

Then reading through the list I see it continues to be true :!:

Not sure if that's sad or cool ... 8) :roll:

I'll chime in on the VW comment as well. 2 years ago I bought and rebuilt a 1987 VW Westfalia Syncro, but it was quickly pointed out by my lovely wife that for all intents and purposes it mirrored the same role the Carawagon filled, and which one was I going to keep? In retrospect it would of been easier to find a new wife than another Syncro Westy..........

'79 mustang
'79 mercury capri rs (actually built for rally sport by previous owner, dangerous for a 16 year old to own)
'80 ford bronco
'81 cj 7
'87 suzuki samurai LWB 6" lift and 33's
'79 ford bronco (second owner, mint truck, really miss it)
'87 jeep cherokee 6" lift 33x9.50's (hate unibodies)
'94 f-150 4" lift 33's
'97 jeep tj 4"lift 33's
'94 suzuki sidekick 4 door
'61 SII 109
'01 suzuki xl-7
'87 vw syncro westy
'57 S1 107 station wagon (co-own with dad, or so I hope.....)
'57 S1 88

Various other crappy little cars too insignificant to remember.
'61 series II 109 Carawagon
'57 series I 107 Station Wagon

Re: What vehicles have you owned?

I hit a milestone in our D2 yesterday that I figured was worth sharing with you folks...

400,000 km
400K_photo.JPG
400K_photo.JPG (349.46 KiB) Viewed 7566 times
A few bits of trivia about what got me there...

I averaged around 15 mpg (imperial) every time I checked mileage, with the best being 20 mpg (trip to Moab) and the worst being 12 mpg (winter city driving) using mid grade fuel.

In L/100Km this is 18.8321, which means the truck used 75,328 litres of fuel.

At an average (estimated) cost of 1.30 for mid grade, that works out to roughly $100,000 of fuel!!!

Now about keeping the truck alive... I created this list for a friend a few months back that was looking at buying a D2. While a lot of work was done, most of it was DIY and so the cost of repair hasn't come close to the cost of fuel.

160K head gaskets (no valve grind, just clean and replace)
200K clutch fan - shattered blades due to mud hole
200K intake heater plenum replace (very small job)
200K waterpump
225K reweld Y pipe (cracked and split while off-roading)
240K crankshaft position sensor left truck stranded
250K head gaskets
260K coils and plug wires
350K head gaskets (primarily due to leaking valley gasket, heads weren't actually leaking)
350K replaced worn rocker arm assemblies with used
360K lower rad hose burst
375K timing cover to block gasket (replaced water pump at the same time, big job this one, but the bottom end of the engine remained untouched even though I had to take the pan and oil pickup off)

Non engine
left rear hub ABS sensor and harness
right front hub
brakes, shocks, springs numerous times
rear pinion seal
replaced transfer case at about 240K
replaced front drive shaft 2x (shoddy ujoint replacement first time)
starter
just going through bushings for the first time, rear done, front this winter

Also replaced the transmission about 2 months ago as it was showing signs of failure.

To Do this spring:
-high/low shifter not functioning due to a mistake made by the shop that put in the transmission
-more bushings
-lots of little accessories beginning to die now
-new shocks to be installed
-manifold to downpipe gaskets to be replaced

Mostly in the UK:

The poor student/graduate years:

1981 Fiat Strada 75CL in red. The first robot-built car in the world. Fell to bits due to the built-in Rust and structural failure of the chassis.
1979 Ford Fiesta 957cc in black with red vinyl interior
1988 Ford Orion 1.4L in Burgundy. Parked it in the end of someone's cottage in County Durham in 1993.
1989 Ford Fiesta 1.1LX in Burgundy

Then I went in to a series of company cars....

Ford Escort 1.4L in Red
Ford Escort 1.4LX in Graphite
Ford Mondeo 1.6LX in Red
Ford Escort 1.6LX in Red
Ford Focus 1.6LX in Red
Renault Laguna Estates, Mazda 6 (various, short term company rentals)

Had an Austin Montego during that time as well somewhere. Nasty. That and the Maestro were probably the start of the end of BL/AR/Rover etc...

Then I started running my own again as Company Car tax made them more tax efficient....

2003 Ford Galaxy 1.9 TDI (aka VW Sharan)
Vauxhall Vectras, 1 estate (aka hearse) 2.2SRi 56 reg and 1 hatchback 03 reg. Think it was a diesel.
2011 Vauxhall Insignia 2.2SRi estate. (That's the same as a Buick Regal over here)

At some stage around this point, my wife had a Honda Insight hybrid thing. This was Honda's straight rip-off of a Toyota Prius. Only it was really REALLY crap.

Insignias and Vectras were bought at 9 months old for very low prices, as they have one of the worst 1st year deprecations known to man!

2007 Nissan X-Trail 2.2 diesel. First engine lasted 70,000 miles/3 years. Second engine probably still going....

2011 Mercedes C220CDI Estate. Damn good car, but I did 60,000 miles in 2 years in it!

Then I moved to BC:

Currently have:

2013 Nissan Frontier provided by work
2013 Hyundai Genesis sedan 3.8 V6 Premium. A very under-rated car and everyone thinks it's a Lexus or something!

and of course...

1997 Land Rover Defender 110 TDi CSW in white. From Germany via England and a shipping container. One previous owner. Currently on 210,000km.

That's the first Landy I've owned, but I've used and abused many over 25 years in the construction industry in the UK.

1985 - Ford/F150 4x4 - silver - 300 inline six
1971 - Ford/Pinto - green - automatic German 2L engine - not as bad as it sounds

Wow Bryan, not sure how old you are but 54 vehicles owned and I would have to say you spent way more time buying than you did driving :-) They say women are bad with shoes!!! The best one is buying the 7 year old FJ40 with no rust Haha. That was definitely something to brag about in "79.

I'm 52, so I definitely buzzed through them. Some the light and all of the medium trucks were owned through my business - so a lot of people drove them. There are 25 or 30 additional titles that passed through my hands that were for parts or part of a batch of vehicles - I didn't include those because I never drove them at all. My wife, as you can imagine is a bit perplexed and says things like "we live in a junk yard" or "at least you don't beat me". Poor woman.

1970 Ford Maverick - 3 in the tree standard; painted Crown Z orange (with a brush); a 15th birthday gift from my uncle in CR.
1974 Triumph Spitfire - convertible; 4 speed; green; great for picking-up the girls at Willows Beach in Victoria.
1970ish Mazda B1800 pick-up - red; 4 speed; bought it when the transmission packed in on the Spitfire; no good for the girls.
1984 VW Rabbit GTI - black with red trim; 5 speed; sunroof; very fast and fun to play with; even better for picking-up girls!
1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 - metallic green; automatic; lost my mind and thought I could sell real estate while driving a couch!!
1990 Ford Explorer XL - red and silver; 5 speed; no more girls but found? a wife and looking to the future.
1994 Ford Explorer XLT - silver and white; automatic; domesticated with room for the dog.
2000 Ford Explorer Limited - gold; automatic; the wife liked to drive it.
2007 Ford Explorer Limited - black on black; automatic; fully loaded luxury; the wife really liked to drive this one.
2008 Hyundai Tiburon - blue; 4 cylinder; automatic with sport shift; the commuter car to and from work. Still have it 60K.
2002 Land Rover Discovery II - silver; V8; my project vehicle.
2016 Lincoln Navigator - white metallic; V6 Eco-Boost; the concession made to the wife for buying the Discovery.
1984 Land Rover Series 3 half-ton (Lightweight) - green; right-hand drive; 4 speed manual; yet another project vehicle.

Of them all I regret selling the GTI the most. The one I miss the least was the Olds Delta 88. What was I thinking?

1994 Land Rover - Range Rover - burgundy - tons of fun
1989 Saab - brown, five speed, cleaned it up a bit, then sold it after a year
1995 Land Rover Discovery - dark green, great with my dog and hauling horsey stuff around
2002 Volvo Wagon - Cross Country - white, amazing car until the rear differential gave out
2008 Volvo SUV - white, piece of garbage
2008 Ford Explorer - black, automatic, was a great car, no issues
