      By request, I'm starting a thread where we can post a list of our past automotive conquests so as to establish what sort of automotive backgrounds we all come from, however narrow or varied they may be.

      So as to keep things neat and tidy, I'll put a few basic rules in place:

      - Post one photo of each vehicle - Use a stock photo if necessary
      - Post the OEM specs/options
      - Post a list of the modifications if any
      - Post whether it was purchased new or used
      - Post how long you kept the vehicle for, or if you still own it

      Leather
      Bought used when I was 18

      2012 Golf R Rising Blue, 1973 BMW 2002tii Sahara
      10-29-2011 04:06 PM #2
      No pics of the volvo but i started with a 1988 Volvo 240 Wagon, Silver, w/ blue vinyl interior. That thing was a beast... awesome for driving to school in... got it in like October 1999.

      Then from there I took over the payments on my brother's 2001 Golf in 2004 w/ 2.slow and manual transmission. Wasn't fast but it was still fun and a big upgrade overall from the Volvo. Pic here:



      After that I traded that in on a 2007 GTI as shown here:



      Next car: 2012 Golf R, of course.

      2008 Jetta Wolfsburg


      Best stock image I could find. Unfortunately had basically the whole front end replaced: bumper, hood, both fenders. Was hit twice, once while parked, and the second time someone pulled across the road in front of me...

      My next car will be a Golf R 4dr CSG.

      Don't have any pics, but you guys know what they all look like.
      1968 VW Beetle
      1962 VW Beetle
      1965 VW Beetle
      1972 Porsche 914 1.7L
      1965 VW Bus
      2004 Ford Ranger FX4
      2006 VW GTI(Current car, APR 3+, 85,000 miles)
      1972 VW Sup Beetle(I hate SB, but my dad bought it new in 72, sold to grandpa, grandpa gave to me to make room for golf cart..Wanted the car since I was like 5 years old. In storage, pan off resto coming one of these years.)
      I have a major air cooled fetish. Can't wait to buy a house so I can have like 10 air cooleds parked in the driveway. It is so much fun, but I needed the stability of a DD, so I bought the GTI. 40 year old cars have quirks.

      First car:
      1988 Ford Escort LX 5 door hatchback
      Freebie first car from my mom when she got a new car to replace this. Was basically a car that a little old lady had drove to the store and church before we bought it. This was the start of my love of hatchbacks due to just how damned convenient all the space inside was. The 3 speed auto tranny went on my 21st birthday in 2008. (Joined the Army 2 months later so didn't need a car anyway)

      Stock Photo (mine was dark grey not blue)


      Second (and current car):
      2004.5 VW GLI
      Bought in Dec 2009 after getting out of AIT and to my first duty station. Used first enlistment bonus check as down payment on her and got a gracious loan from the Bank of Granddad (still paying him off for it) for the rest. Sadly its an automatic. I was too impatient to try to find a 6MT GLI in the area and saw this and absolutely fell in love with it the first time I sat in the Recaros. I wish she was a manual, had more HP, was AWD and was a hatchback... which is why I'm gonna sell her to a buddy in my unit when I get back from deployment and pick up an R!

      Crappy cellphone pic from when she was brand new:


      Next car:
      Hopefully a 4 door Rising Blue R (Don't care if its base or loaded...)
      My other 'car' is a 68,000lb Mine Resistant vehicle

      Oh yeah. Xalfa's post reminded that I missed one of my cars and its right in my profile description. I inherited it rather than purchasing it so I sort of forgot about it, haha.

      1991 BMW 318is
      2002 infinity Q45
      1979 Toyota Corolla Station Wagon (this was just a beater I used to collect money from my coin laundromat....I didn't like pulling up in my Mercedes or GTI)
      2002 VW GTI 337
      1997 Jeep Wrangler Sahara (bought this for fun, off roading, etc...)

      2011 VW Golf TDI 6spd man

      2012 Golf R on order (will be trading in my Genesis)

      Some pics:



      This was my MGB. I just sold it a couple of years ago. After we had kids, it sat in the garage collecting dust. Had a Moss Motorsports Supercharger, 5spd conversion and a long list of other nice things.



      My 1992 Mazda Protege' after being turned into an ITA road race car:



      Current car, Hyundai Genesis:




      Other current car, Golf TDI:




      2002 GTI 337 w APR Stage 3:




      2005 Mercedes C230 (traded this in on my Golf TDI)
      This was the most reliable car I have ever owned. I bought it new and put 203,000 miles on it. The only thing replaced, other than brakes, tires, etc. was an alternator bearing. When I traded it in, it still had the stock clutch & battery. This car never not started and never left me stranded in 203k miles. I changed the plugs once and serpentine belt twice. Even the radiator fluid was still showing as serviceable when I had it flushed at 198k miles. Incredible car!

      To this day, This is one of my dream cars. I looked for one back in 2005 and ended up getting the MGB instead. Also considered a TR5. I think if I had found and purchased an Alfa, I would still have it. I loved the MGB, but had no sadness in selling it.

      I'd like mine something like this one though:

      I got out in 1993. Years and years ago, it seems. still remember much of it like it was yesterday though.
      I tried going back in when we went back to Iraq. The recruiter told me, because I was in my 30's, that I didn't make the age cut-off.
      I hadn't married my gf or had kids at the time and felt I would never be done serving my country. They decided for me, that I was done serving in the ARMY though.

      Nice. But you don't want those rims... Mine was dropped a bit and had replica GTA rims like these.



      Euro cams, yellow fogs, Nardi wood steering wheel, and a nice Abarth exhaust. Otherwise stock. You want a 69, if you can find one. Cleanest exterior and the stock seats are amazing. And Giallo Oscuro is definitely the best color. Why the eff did I sell that car!!??
