All the cars you have ever owned list!

Recommended Posts


All the cars I've owned? That's a bit of a stretch, but here goes. The years are approximate as didn't buy many of these from new.

My cars (and my beloved's):

  • 1958 Standard 10 - had a fold-down back seat. Just the thing for the drive-in B)
  • Late 60s Ford Cortina
  • 1975 Audi Fox (x2) - nice, honest little cars. Great for a long drive. I took one between Kalgoorlie and Perth dozens of times.
  • 1979 Audi 100 5E - absolutely beautiful car, but succumbed to chronic overheating. :( Before it carked itself I drove it many times between Perth & Port Hedland with a young family on board. It was gorgeous!
  • Mid 70s VW fastback - only kept it a few months
  • Late 70s Cortina 6 - bloody awful
  • Mitsubishi Express L300 van - the family was getting bigger. Thank God I never crashed the thing!
  • 1985 Subaru station wagon - great little wagon. Really comfortable and practical. It had rubber mats on the floor and plastic door liners but still managed to look reasonably classy.
  • Toyota Lite Ace people mover - a lot better than the Mitsubishi, but that wasn't hard
  • 1995 Subaru Liberty - good solid sedan, and quite comfortable
  • 2001 Subaru Outback - much like the Liberty, but nicer, and a station wagon
  • 1995 Subaru Impreza - She Who Must Be Obeyed kept this for 12 years, then passed it down to our nephew. It's still going strong.
  • 2008 Subaru Impreza - first of the hatchbacks. It replaced the old Impreza. Really smooth drive, but the interior was very cheap. We sold this one to get the Lexus.
  • 2006 Mercedes-Benz C180K. Much maligned but really a very nice car. SWMBO drives this one.
  • 2006 Lexus RX350 My current drive. Not much more to say about this one. :)

Company cars

  • 1977 Holden Belmont - a true shocker
  • 1978 Ford Cortina - not too bad. This was a 4 cylinder which I had before I bought the six. The four was a much better car.
  • 1980 Chrysler Valiant - It was big.
  • 1982 Falcon wagon - a real Friday car. badly assembled, rattled. Got rid of it as soon as possible.
  • 1984 Commodore wagon - not a lot to say. It was a car.

This was a great idea for a thread - brings back lots of memories.

I bought my first car December 2004 and it was a slightly used 04 Mitsubishi CH Lancer VR-X in Black. Had that for about 9 months then sold it.

Then in September 2005 I bought a 2002 Mitsubishi TJ Ralliart Magna (possibly my favourite car I've owned so far) with only 8,000kms on it. Was basically as new. I had this at for 17 months and sold it in February 2007.

3rd car was a Black 2004 Mazda RX-8 with red leather trim. Bought it through a Mazda dealer I worked for at the time. Was a fun car but not very practical. Only had it for 8 months then traded (straight swap for my 4th car...

A Blue 2004 Holden VZ SS Commodore sedan in October 2007.. Not sure why I went for one of these. Hardly drove it because fuel got expensive and I bought a Daihatsu Mira to run around for work in. Had this for 22 months until I sold it because I had only done 1,500kms in it in 12 months.

Then I bought my current car in August 2009 - a 2009 (brand new) Mitsubishi Ralliart Colt in silver.

Thats now been traded on a 2011 IS350 F Sport in pearl white with a moonroof that should be here very soon. Can't wait to pick it up!!

1991 honda gen2 crx found it at a wrecker down the sunshine coast, it had mugen goodies bolted on everywhere the wrecker said it needed a clutch and gearbox (had both of these at home) he thought it was a civic haha i got it for $1000 then i modded it painted it shaved door handles, everything opened and closed started ect, via remote, then couldnt get it to pass rwc here in qld so sold it to a vic honda member for 5k

1994 honda accord vtec needed a daily while i was fixing up the crx above, got this to swap out the engine but it was single cam and not worth the time, so kept it till i sold the crx then started looking for a clean crx.

1990 honda gen2 crx i bought this one as i also had bought the 2x gen1s below i had plans to make a track car out of them and with the accord sold i wanted another tidy gen 2 as a daily,

1985 gen1 crx both of these made 1 good track car, 1 was already half done both were drivable, the 87 si ballard shell is still at my parents just collecting rust and spare parts inside haha.

1987 gen1 crx

1988 honda gen2 crx got this one as result of spraying a customers car, it was in bad shape, i just parted it out :(

2003 lexus is200 sport luxury-- was lucky enough to find this on ebay for 10k asking went and looked on thursday night bout 7pm had next to no reciepts but looked tidy the young lady owner couldnt tell me anything so i bartered her to 8500 and jumped at it, it was a great car for close on a year,

2002 vt commodore i fell ill and moved back home, my gf at the time fell pregnant and i had to sell the lexus as she didnt like it and wanted a mazda 6, so sold the lexus bought that then she miss carried and took off with the car (over space of 4 months)

1988 honda crx (current ride) got over females figured hondas have always been kind to me bought this with low km then bombed it out, swapped in a b20vtec engine and converted everything back to stock, has all the go fast bits and is now off the road for turbo conversion,

1993 toyota soarer bought this while the crx was off the road but was insanly thirsty so i used boostcruising for the first time and put it up for trade, and got the hilux below,

1995 toyota hilux 4x4 (current) has vt ecotec engine swap it a great car , had to spend bout 3k ontop of the swap to get it on the road but i love it, it will be used to tow my crx to and from QR and lakeside.

1999 lexus is200 turbo (current) finaly deciding that having a track car and a big 4x4 isnt enough i set out to find a manual is200 again this time with the plan of a 1jz but after looking everywhere and flying to syney to look at a few i found this on the side of the road for sale and it was turbo, i talked the owner from 10k to 8600 so i payed him and drove it back that night, not a problem and i love it, problem is i like it that much i have forgotten about the crx build alot lately haha.

some of these i owed at the same time and thats not including cars i bought to just spray and resell.

i realise i have owned alot of cars for my age but living in a small town with not alot to do i took pride in getting something *BLEEP* giving it paint and fixing it up then seeing someone else enjoying it, also being able to drive around point out " i painted that haha"

Eno that is one very diverse list; I like it.

My list; not nearly as extensive as some:

87 ford meteor

00 Toyota Camry v6

06 WRX (current)

94 R33 GTST (current)

Change in priorities now so the sports cars are going. Driven some awesome stuff in even better locations through the years but I'm now more focused on being outdoors and in the middle of no where. It's unfortunate be use my choice of cars and lifestyle don't match.

My list is very Mazda and V8 heavy (or Jap/Americam/Australian), I kind of want something exotic... I just don't want the repair bill.

Some nice cars in there Gunnar. What are you after being on a Lexus forum?

350 f Sport. I want to move away from out and out sports cars and into something a but sedate. I drove it one whilst it doesn't get my adrenaline running the same way as my Skyline it was still great in a different way.

I've driven a lot of different things over the years and there's only one car I've preferred to my Skyline and another two that I rate equally as nice (albeit for different reasons)

Do you have more pics of the muscle cars?

Yes the Challenger is a 440 Six Pack. I still have that one. It sucks up my money before the Lexus gets to even thinking about it!

The Mustang was a 390. :)

I only owned one car so far my 07 Lexus IS250, its my first car and its a great great car, love it so much! In the future when i graduate and get a proper job, i was hoping to get an Audi A6 3.0 TFSI supercharged Biturbo, Dual clutch S-tronic! It look so sexy and at the same time, so exhilarating with all the tech and power offered! and did i mention the 16 speaker bang and olufsen sound system?! its just great! GTR seems like a great option as well if i am ever gonna be successful. My dream car is a red Audi R8 Spyder V10 Plus! God bless!

76' Toyota Corona - this was all I could afford as a runabouts during my uni days in the early 90's. The audio system was worth more than the car itself..silly me but it was F.U.N..!!. Kept it for a couple of yrs before I got rid of it....to the wrecker for beer$$.

78'Nissan 200B - Still cash strap so bought this to replace my Corona. Didn't last as long.

86' Toyota Corolla Hatch - This was kinda mom/mine car. The engine kept going no matter how I mildly abuse'd it.

92' Camry Wagon (white) - Whitegoods on wheels.

04' Toyota Supra IV NA - Should have listened to my GF and think with my head and not my heart. Kept it for 12 months and took me the same amount of time to sell the damn thing at a 30% loss, and it was good riddance.

02' Honda CRV - bought this when it just came out in 02 and kept it for 7 yrs before I handed her over to a family member. Most reliable car I ever owned.

08' Lexus RX400h - my 1st Luxury car and I hope it won't be the last, but it'll be a while before I can afford to upgrade.
