    I have a 76 450 SE sitting due to firewall corrosion. Transplanted a grey market Euro 4.5 V8 into it just before the suspension gave way at the firewall. Very frustrating.

    hmm, what have I owned - in order:

    1980 Malibu
    1985 F150
    1986 F150
    1987 Celebrity
    1984 LTD Wagon with 1993 Mustang 5.0
    1966 Lincoln Continental
    1967 Lincoln Continental
    1976 Mercedes 450 SE
    1993 Crown Victoria
    1994 Lincoln Mark VIII
    1987 Volvo 244
    1986 Buick Regal - owned it for less than 24 hours before I sold it
    1991 525i - current car

    13 cars in 12 years of driving. Man.

    Default What cars have you owned?

    My first car in 2003 was this:

    1996 VW Citi Golf (Golf Mark I) 1.3 Carb. Price: R29 000 (US$ 3866)




    2005, more of the same!

    1999 VW Citi Golf 1.3 Carb with updated interior. Price: R35 000 (US$ 4666)



    In 2006...

    1992 Honda Ballade 150 16V. Loved this little car, but rusted away under me! Price: R28 000 (US$ 3700)



    In 2007...

    1981 Mercedes-Benz 200. Loaded with a/c, p/s, cruise control, central locking, the works. Bought with 119 000km (74 000miles) on the clock. Absolutely pristine, showroom condition. Price: R22 000 (US$ 2900). Loved this car to bits and I miss it very much.

    2008:

    1992 BMW 525i manual with 190 000km (118 000miles). Price: R35 000 (US $ 4666)



    Interesting that the BMW only cost R 6000 (US $800) more than the crappy POS Citi Golf did!

    And yes, the Golf Mark I is still being produced in SA!!

    They look like this now:
