      I've got it bad but the cars I've purchased have, until lately, been pretty similar.

      I owned probably a dozen 240sx's, 4 NA6 miatas, 2 SW20 MR2's, a 2004 WRX, a Datsun 510 sedan, and some other stuff.

      Lately it's branched out some:

      - MX73 Cressida
      - Volvo 850 GLT
      - '78 Mercedes 240 Diesel
      - Current '06 Mustang GT

      Honestly I credit this to TCL. I was on 240/dorifto forums and so that's what I bought, and I still love those cars but now my tastes are wider ranging thanks to the myriad of nonsense that assaults my eyeballs every time I get on TCL.

      I have automotive ADD in a specific category of cars. Old RWD japanese sports coupes from the 70's-90's.

      I cannot for the life of me make up my mind between these:

      1974-75 Celica:


      Any year 240Z:


      MkIII Supra Turbo:


      Z32 300ZX TT:

      The only cure I have found is temporary--saving for a house. Once I get a garage, I know I'm going to need something fun to wrench on. I don't have it quite as bad as some in here, but In my 12 years of driving I have had 8 cars:

      '94 Corolla
      '98 GSR - regret selling this one the most
      '98 Z28
      '00 S70 T5 - owned this one the longest, like 2.5 years
      '07 335i - miss this one the most
      '88 Reatta (for 2 months in between jobs)
      '05 GTO
      '08 GTI

      Wow some of you guys have serious ADD.

      This is my modest list since 1996:
      89 RX7 GTU
      97 Prelude SH
      00 M Coupe
      87 CRX Si
      02 WRX
      04 SVT Focus
      99 M Coupe
      00 M Coupe
      86 CRX Si
      91 CRX Si
      06 350Z
      07 GTI
      09 MS3

      My favorite is MS3 as DD, hence record-shattering 3 years of ownership and counting.

      I didn't say it was "bad" really, just that it is problematic in its own sense. Properly caring for, making use of, justifying etc.

      Example: I have a Jeep YJ project that has been sitting in the garage for the better part of a decade and haven't had the time to finish it. Fiberglass tub, I have damn near every part i'd need and then some. Just don't have the time for all my hobbies/family/friends etc.

      At age 27 my life is busy. Busy working to pay for our house and upgrades, busy working on the house, busy with friends' weddings/parties/friends' kids birthdays etc., trackdays, working on the Porsche 930 race car, general hobbies (mountain biking, motocross, atv, camping, hiking, photography).

      We have a few Jeeps between my dad and I. Some are heavily modified for off-road use, ever since we got into performance cars my time for off-roading has been limited. I have been on the trail once in the last year.

      It becomes difficult to try and do all the things you enjoy with all the different vehicles. I'm not complaining, it's great to be busy and live life to its fullest. But it also isn't good to bite off more than you can chew.

      And living in the Great White North it limits warm weather activities to half the year (performance cars/off-road trails/motocross/atv/camping etc.)

      My issue is a love pretty much most brands, type, year, quality, etc.

      I like sports cars, trucks, diesel, gas, turbo, blown, small, big, muddy, shinny, loud, lifted, slammed, wheel gap, over sized tires, under sized, leather, cloth, vinyl.

      I've gone through my phases, Muscle, import, euro, trucks, etc.

      If I in the future make a lot of money I am going to have a ton of ~$5-40,000 cars.
