I don't really own a car yet... My parents have been letting me drive their truck though:

2004 Ford Ranger

My Dad also said if I put the money into restoring them, I could have either his 1965 Chrysler Imperial Convertible:

(His is White, and the paint and stuff isn't in near the same shape as this one)

I also have the choice of his 1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1:

(Looks just like this, minus the black striping and the spoiler)

I'm leaning towards the Mustang. The availability of parts is better.

My '89 Chevy Blazer k5, envy of rednecks worldwide. You haven't lived until a dude pulls up to you on the highway and yells at you "what year is that!".

Unfortunately, it ain't running at the moment. I'm going to have to shell out 250 for a new fuel pump. When it does run, I love it. It feels so smooth and no other vehicle has felt right to me.

Well, you know. my family owns a bentley and couple ferraris. Nothin' much. Just kidding. We have a Ford Flex and a Mazda... 3? The flex is 2009 I think and the Mazda is fairly recent. 2010-2012, I would say. We bought it used this past summer. Before that, My dad owned a crappy old '96 Taurus. When we traded it, the guys at the dealer told us the transmissions were almost dead, and that we traded it in just in time.

I won't post a picture, because I can never get it to work. Feel free to post pictures if you want.

Ok, think I got it this time.

1984 Pontiac "Indy" Fiero
#70/2000

http://s1353.beta.photobucket.com/user/Indy_Fiero/media/Fiero2_zpse4a900bc.jpg.html#/user/Indy_Fiero/media/Fiero2_zpse4a900bc.jpg.html?&_suid=135647596617507381839085268248

Bought it at a garage sale, was in the back of this guy's shed. While it was in his possesion it experienced a bad hail storm that shattered the windshield, tail lights and both side mirrors. We bought it for $500 then started fixing it up. To get it started all we needed was a battery(even though the gas was bad so it didn't run that well ;) ). We then had to replace the brake cable due to alot of corosion, which took a week to find the right part for it. Next was the windshield and mirrors. We then got new covers for the tail lights off of Ebay. It isn't too bad of a car for only having a 4 cylinder "Iron Duke", the only engine avaible on Fiero's in '84. It currently has about 128,000 miles. When every we get the time we will completely restore it.

My Renault Express. It's not my picture, but it looks quite similar. It's quite old (around 20 years-old), but it's still working and, for some strange reason, I prefer to drive this rather than other modern cars.

@Bronze: I know that feeling. I've lost count of how many times people have asked me the same question.

Lol you're telling me? My car is old enough to be your grandfather. 58 years in about a week or so when we hit 2013.
But, it's old in a good way obviously, it's a classic. Nothing like a 1950's hot rod with a big V8. everyone loves it but your wallet and bank account. But really 12 mpg isn't much worse than most trucks people drive, and I don't drive my Ford everyday obviously. Stays parked in the winter, and even in summer I don't drive it much.

Keg, Im going to have to say that is that is a pretty nice car you have. I can also relate to the stories of people asking you guys what year your car's are, the only difference is people ask WHAT my car is. My dad and I have taken my car to the local parts store several times, and the look on people's faces is priceless when they see the car, especially when the front hood is open (Open's like a Corvette's) and they don't see the engine in the front. One of those times an old man came up and said he had never seen such a car. :)

Yeah Daleks, get that over-sized mountain dew bottle off the road!! (Just kidding. Kia is a good brand I guess.)

Hey kegaumongo, what kind of gas mileage you get with that fine Renault?
