    I currently own a 1976 Chevrolet Nova that I've been restoring. I've finally replaced virtually every inch of the engine and under body. Next step is the interior and finally the body, which is actually in decent condition for its it's age!

    I also own a 1994 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. I bought it a year ago without doing a single thing to it besides checking the fluids every few miles. Since she's taken me across Michigan without a problem. Funny story, it was like 50 Fahrenheit for a week so I took the top off.. now? It's 35 F and snowing xD People look at me like I'm crazy when I pass them with no top and it's snowing.

    Actually a few weeks ago I also bought a 1973 Honda CB750 that I've turned into a bobber. It's actually looking bad-ass!

    Ive somehow ended up in a 2012 focus titanium too after owning a Mini Cooper JCW.

    I have the 1 litre EcoBoost engine which really surprised me, especially for how heavy the car is. Those eco turbos that Ford do are pretty impressive.

    Living in Michigan here, and yes, I'd still say you are crazy for dropping the top when its 60 F or less out, but then again, I'm not built for weather under 70 F.     xD

    Currently own (or do the maintenance on them, lol):
    • 1983 Benz 380SEL - We bought this as a commuter for our daughter.  After giving it some harder test drives, we decided she needs the newer safety gadgets (ABS, ESC, AWD, etc…) until she gets more experience.  I picked up a second set of wheels and had to grind a tiny bit off the outside edge of the hub spindles (easier than ordering a newer spindle and making that fit) to mount a second set of wheels with Blizzaks) Probably gonna sell this one.
    • 1999 Ford Expedition - Son's vehicle.  Other than the craptastic coil pack/plug design (had one blow out) it's been solid
    • 2003 Buick LeSabre Limited - Mother-In- Law's car, just changed out some busted coolant lines this weekend.  We also have a 2003 Buick  LeSabre Custom that my daughter wrecked but I keep as a donor
    • 2007 Toyota Tundra - The BEAST!  176K and still rock solid.  I've replaced the water pump, alternator and misc wear items...
    • 2008 Saturn Sky - "THAT'S a SATURN?!?!"  Yeah, she's fun.  I want to mod her, but I never drive her, so it's in storage (for now).  She is such a cop magnet too.  Early on when I first got her I was stopped like 3-4 times in that first year or so by cops that just wanted to check out the vehicle.  "What kinda car IS this?"
    • 2010 Benz E350 - Wifey's ride.  I've replaced/repaired a few of the gadgetry things that have broken (turn signal, radio knobs, etc...) otherwise fairly solid vehicle.  Handles like a sports car, just a bit subdued on the power-weight ratio ;)
    --

    Car's I've owned, driven, or worked on in the past:
    • 1966 Olds Cutlass - Dad's car baby!  He installed almost every bolt-on shy of a blower/supercharger.  Bored out engine, all aftermarket pipes (intake, headers, exhaust), 4 barrel carb, performance hoses and wiring.  I miss this car so much (even more now that he's passed away).  He wrecked it, got hit in the right rear and that either warped the frame or bent the suspension parts so badly that the right rear wheel pointed outward a lil bit.  That made right handed off/on ramps AWESOME and left hand ramps AWFUL! xD
    • 1976 Olds Cutlass - Mom's car.  First car I ever drove.  Helped dad with the maintenance on this car as a lil kid up through til she died (tranny blew up I think)
    • 1970? Plymouth Fury - Was my grandfathers car.  Biggest whale of a car... not even our Tundra was as pain in the ass to maneuver as this monster.
    • 1976? Chrysler Cordoba - Grandmother's car.  Another whale, just not as bad as the Fury
    • 1982 Toyota Tercel - First car, beat the crap out of it.  Wrecked and repaired it (mostly just suspension damage, but also had to replace half shafts.
    • 1983? Chevrolet Shitvette (Chevette) - Total piece of crap.  Traded my ragged out Tercel for it.  It lasted a few months til I blew the engine (forgot to keep the oil topped off... sigh).  Was fairly tough.  Slid it into a ditch 10' deep ditch and didn't hurt anything.  Junked for $$
    • 1984? Toyota Corolla - Replaced a fender, nothing else too significant.  Oh, yeah, this was the car I got three tickets in one stop :|  ...speeding in a school zone, speeding across a bridge, and no stopping when the officer turned on their lights behind me. (she didn't believe me when I said I thought the sirens were in the song on the alternative college music station I was listening to... sigh
    • 1968 Volkswagen Beetle - Had a '72 Super Beetle engine in it.  replaced clutch in this one (easiest clutch swap EVER).  fun car, handled SUPER especially when you cram oversized tires on the wheels :D  Got rid of it when I was assigned overseas (Turkey).  Shoulda kept it, sigh.
    • 1992 Honda CRX - Another fun car to drive.  I abused the HECK outta this one too!  Replaced struts, clutch, and rebuilt some front body work after a fender bender.  It still made it across the country and lasted for several months til one of the main seals blew out and the engine caught on fire (on the way to work no less... fun times)
    • 1998? Chrysler Cirrus - Not a bad sedan performance wise.  It had a chip on the transmission that did not like the heat.  That piece of crap fried like 3 times.  Left us stranded on vacation. Joy
    • 1999 Plymouth Voyager - I still miss this mini van.  Stupid dealer wouldn't just rebuild the tranny when the input sensor crapped out.  So then we had to have it rebuilt part by part (output sensor, torque converter, and some other part that failed as part of that cascading failure) on separate visits to the dealer.
    • 1995 Buick Century Coupe - Bought from my brother in law.  Somewhat uncommon body style.  Pretty good power to weight ratio so it was fun to drive and smoke 5.0 mustangs who didn't know better, LOL!  We sold it to a young kid looking for a putter around car.
    • 1996? Issuzu Trooper - Wasn't too fond of this vehicle.  Way to prone to roll.  Almost as bad as our expedition.  Also it was bright red so cops paid a LOT of attention to this one (where they would IGNORE the Buick).  We sold it to a kid who had it for a couple months before he sunk it in a swamp while going mudding. XD  At least it got to see some of it's intended use.
    • 1998 Ford Taurus – Was a high mileage beater we bought for my son.  It had “issues” with overheating, and just being a piece of crap in general.  It started having issues with the transmission (mechanic said it was a coupler), it got super annoying so I sold it.
    • 2005 Toyota Tacoma - Bright "Speedway" blue.  Loved this truck.  Great power/weight ratio, good for hauling big(ish) loads.  Wifey hit a patch of ice and then head first into a wall (while she was still going at least 35-40.  She never felt confident in it after that.  I didn’t notice too much difference, but she did drive it a lot more than me, so I believe her.  We traded this in on the Tundra in ‘08 and a kid at the dealership bought it and was still driving it when we left in 2014.
    • 2008 BMW 535ix - The most planted and grippy car I've ever had the pleasure to drive hard on twisty mountain roads.  Less power to weight than my Sky, but with all the grip and stability I doubt either vehicle would shake the other on curvy mountain roads.  The Sky is quicker, but the 535 could keep more speed in the curves.  Dem Germans sure know a thing or two.
    Other stuff I've driven, but never worked on:
    • Numerous makes/models of Humvee.  My favorite was the heavy duty one they gave us that had no camper shell in the back.  It was built to be a field ambulance, or mobile office/network truck, but with the shell and all that weight gone from the back... man... was it squirrely!  It would seriously BOUNCE if you hit bumps the wrong way.  Scary as crap if you didn't know about it ahead of time, but fun as hell to take the newbies for a ride and listen to them freaking out.
    • Several brands of cars and trucks not available in the states.  Some crappy import sedans in Panama that were just slightly different than what Toyota/Nissan/Honda sells in the states.  A Toyota Hilux (similar to our crewmax Tundra with two full sized doors and a slightly shorter bed.)
    • Fiat ??? - terrible little econobox I drove from Ramstein to Frankfurt... on the Autobahn. Poor thing would only do like 110kph with the pedal FLOORED.
    • Infinity ?? Coupe - Not impressed AT ALL.  Over weight, under powered for a coupe they sculpted to look all sporty.  Friends car, his mini midlife crisis vehicle, he spent like 22 months of a 2yr lease disliking the car but being too stubborn to pay the fee and get outta the dang thing.
    • Chevy Camaro - Was only a V6, but was still pretty fun to drive. (rental car)  Did pretty dang good burnouts xD
    • Ford Mustang (Convertible) - Hawaii vacation in a convertible that was a free upgrade???  Yes please! :)
    • Ford Mustang (Special GT edition) - Beautiful car, NOICE POWAH, but such an AWFUL rear end... man, you blink and she's squalling sideways.  It was a blast once I finally dropped the wifey off and got to "play" xD  (rental car in Vegas)
    • Lexus (several models) - Only the F model impressed me at all.  Otherwise, they feel like over priced Toyotas (same buttons, same beeps, etc...)
    • Benz SLC? (V10 demonic beast) - Man this was fun to listen to.  It felt like it had been seriously ragged on.  It was probably much nicer when it was new. (driven while car shopping for the wife's sedan)
    • BMW M5 (another V10 beast) - Same as the SLC above.  It was at Carmax so I know they inspected it.  The car just felt "abused"
    That's all I recall at the moment.  I mean there's been dozens of other vehicles with "meh" or blase stories but these are the ones I paid enough attention to or drove enough to be worth talking about. :)

    1995 Dodge Ram 2500, with a 5.9 cummins inline six.  Could pull a house off the foundation.

    1996 Harley Sportster XLH883 Hugger, bored over with forged pistons/rings, 44mm carb instead of the stock 40, with an added thunderjet fuel circuit.  Thing screams and picks the tire up off the ground in 3rd gear.

    And some buick my cousin gave me that I could care less about, going to replace a shock set in the front and sell it for bike parts because I have an unhealthy addiction.

    My first car was a 1996 Camaro RS that I bought from an insurance auction and rebuilt. I swapped the 3.8V6, that came standard with that trim, with the Z28 5.7V8. Had a leather interior, t-tops, and the ground effects package. Sharp car for that time. 

    The current car is a 2016 Jaguar F Type R that gets track time as well as daily driving. Very fun car.

    Between that has been a very vanilla plethora of Nissan Altimas/Maximas that I am not proud of.

    We have a 2000 Subaru Outback with over 299k miles that we got brand new from the dealership. This thing is a TANK. Needs a new transmission eventually, but we'll be getting something newer before that craps out on us. Once we do get something newer, we're gonna put a lift on the Outback and build it into a car for the Gambler 500.

    300k on original hardware. Tank is right.

    Nice! Loved the GTR. Insanely fast off the line. Do you have an official 1/4 mile time for you build?
