What is your favorite car that you have driven regularly/owned ?

It's a toss up for me.

Currently driving a Volvo V50 T5 and it's a great little car. Good MPG, lots of power and plenty of storage room for my sales stuff.

My first car was a 1967 Mustang. Red with White Vinal Hardtop. Straight 6, 200hp so not as fun as the little V8's but still a pretty nice set of wheels.

1960's Lincoln Continental. I prefer the '64, but I love them all from 61-69. If I owned one, I doubt I'd drive it more than just around the block (with gas prices as they are). I've always loved cars that are roughly three city blocks long. The days of cars like that are definitely gone.

I can speak from experience, if your favorite car is like mine and your buddies is like RL's you won't be driving together very often.

I've had a lot of cars that I loved, starting with my first, a 1968 Ford Mustang with a 289 V-8, four different Pontiac Firebirds (1976, 1979, 1983 and 1985) including two Trans Ams, a 1977 Corvette, a 1981 Corvette, a 1990 Nissan Maxima, and a 1993 Ford Probe. My two favorite regular rides are the two cars I primarily drive now. One is a 2003 Audi A4 Quattro that I purchased at the Audi Connection in Cincinnati last August-probably the best cat I've ever owned. However, my favorite car, bar none, is my 1992 Corvette that I bought nearly four years ago--an absolute blast to drive with a 300 HP 350 smallblock Chevy V-8, yet I get 22-25 mpg. I love it.

I know nothing about cars, but this is my little dream baby. One day, she will be mine.

Only the generation that subjected themselves to this sort of torture would want that ride.

I've never really owned anything that interesting, but I have always believed that bigger is better. I just don't care much for small cars for some reason. I really enjoy driving my van. Besides the fact that I make a decent living with it, it's big enough that I can see over all the darn SUVs on the road these days and it has plenty of power to spare.

My grandfather had one of these when I was young. He completely rebuilt it from the ground up. His was black with a white interior. I have some great memories of that car.

1987 Monte Carlo SS. My only complaints about this car is that with the 305 it was underpowered and they didn't offer it with a stick shift. This car had so much potential and GM/Chevrolet didn't capitalize on it. It ran like a champ though, plus it was eye catching.

This puppy (1976 Trans Am) got me into a lot of trouble. Had the 455 HO engine and I had a mechanic friend remove all the emission control stuff to make it a real dual exhaust and re-tune it. When I got a 90 in 20 speeding ticket, I knew it was time to get rid of it.

And my senior year in HS while I drove an oil-guzzling 62 Corvair, a good friend of mine rolled into the parking lot in this car (1969 GTO "The Judge") that I've lusted for ever since...
