    This should be fun - although I probably will post a pic of my first car, when I get home to dig it up. You should expand it to any car you owned, I'm sure some members had a few 'classics' that they had to get rid of for one reason or another.

    D :D

    A picture of my previous car, an oil burning car with 90 hp (when the turbo sings).

    No need to include a picture of my current ride, since some here probably have taken rides in the back seats of Crown Vics several times - or been pulled over by a similar vehicle with flashy blue/red lights. :p

    wow, the cooper mini is so cool and yuppies in america are buying them up so fast, they will replace a lot of the SUVs they used to buy exclusively

    many SUVs are the most dangerous vehicles to ride since they can easily...i mean easily...roll over

    cadillac SUVs, suburbans, first gen hummers, and isuzus are death traps...lexus makes an ok one but too expensive

    also a vehicle needs to have some give and crumple so the passenger is not shot thru the windshield or made into human puree because the vehicle was too solid and stiff

    old american muscle cars, due to their rigidness in crashes, killed a lot of people

    the safest cars are prolly volvos and mercedes sedans because of their crumple ability and shock absorbant features

    the most difficult car accident to survive is a rollover

    i worked in a hospital for three years and rollever accidents are not pretty...people do not simply walk away from one and seatbelts and airbags do little to help

    one needs a nascar rollbar to survive or walk away from any rollover over 35 mph

    i have a very old tan volvo station wagon and it is not pretty so i won't post a picture...for it's time it was considered very safe, but this car is pre air bags

    Damn, I can drive but I don't have a car yet (need job) but I'm hoping to get a Porsche 944 when I get the money.
    Insurance actually isn't any higher for me compared to a family sedan of about the same year so either an 80's family sedan for $3500 or an 80's Porsche for $3500.

    Decisions, decisions...........

    not sure :D, just went to google.com and typed in 'green
    voltswagon' in the pictures thingy. I did that with all the pictures
    but I kept all colors and models the same. SO those really are
    my families cars, just not our exact cars.

    Now you say you share a car.. but I thought you were like 15. Can you even legally drive by yourself?

    Bought it used.. 1995 Volvo 850, white. Not my actual car.. I am sunroofless and have ****tier wheelcovers, but otherwise it's the same.

    I bought it because safety is cool! Screw that "fun" stuff.

    Heh, it's actually still pretty zippy...

    P.S. Also have a completely restored 1980 Jeep CJ7 i'm about to sell :(

    This pic has 3 of my family's cars in it...

    The truck is a 1991 Toyota 4x4, 4 cylinder, 5 speed manual transmission pickup with 150000 miles on it (those toyotas run forever!) The only thing is that it's in the shop right now, because it didn't want to shift into 1st or reverse sometimes...

    The silver car behind that is my 1998 Ford Escort. It's not flashy, cool, or fast, but it gets me where I need to go.

    I usually drive the truck, unless my dad needs it, and then I take the escort.

    The white thing behind it is a 2001 Suburban with a 5.4 liter Vortec V-8. My dad mainly uses this. We also use it on vacations because we can carry more stuff, and haul a trailer if we have to.

    These are 3 of my cars... My mom drives a char-gold Eagle Vision (think of a dodge intrepid) It's kinda a POS... It's been falling apart, and the engine clunks whenever you slow down, but it's pretty fast when you need it to be...

    Sort of sucks about the SUVs, the roofs of those vehicles cannot really hold up the weight of the vehicle.
