      Well, it would be -24 for me, if you count my wife's Saturns. Yes, there are plenty of domestic cars I'd like to have, but my early years were a little, ahem, skewed.

      22 VWs (mostly air-cooled)
      1 BMW 2002
      1 Fit
      1 Accord
      1 Datsun Fairlady Z (yes, a Fairlady RHD 2 liter)
      1 Toyota Sienna
      2 different Saturns

      That's all I can think of right now. I'd bet that there are more that I've forgotten.

      If nobody beats that as a negative, do I win anything?

      Reading fail. I thought it was a "based on cars produced, who wins the war?" kind of thing. Germany, Italy, Japan -- good enough, Axis wins.

      As for actual ownership, I'm Allies +7. I've owned 9 American cars and 2 foreign ones -- a 1983 Corolla SR5 and this-here German one.

      In the "who wins" scenario, I get rolled faster than Polish horse cavalry.

      In order of ownership"

      1984 Ford Escort L
      1992 Saturn SL1
      1994 Saturn SL1
      2002 Honda Civic EX Coupe
      2005 Toyota Matrix XR AWD
      2012 VW GLI

      So that tallies up to 3 Allies and 3 Axis. Seems the Axis has been winning as of late though.

      But what if I own a wartime production Traction Avant? I'm so confused.

      VW for me and Mazda for the wife. Axis for us, I guess. Then again, I also have an M1 Garand, so maybe that evens it out.

      Look at your signature, now back to mine, now back to yours, now back to mine. Sadly, yours isn’t mine.
