My Ride: 2000 328Ci 5sp SP
Long list here of cars I have owned sorted by time of purchase starting around 1975. I have never bought a new car and all told have put hundreds of thousands of miles on these cars with few breakdowns. However, I tend to be meticulous about maintenance and repair and do a lot myself. All thefts noted occurred in Boston.

62 Mercury Monterey Convertible
65 Chevy Malibu 2 dr 283 “3 on the tree”
66 Chevy Impala 2 dr 283 auto
65 Pontiac Lemans 2 dr 6 cyl auto – bought for $75 sold for $500
66 Olds Cutlass Convertible (great car – my college ride – blew the motor while revving the motor one new years eve – stolen sitting parked with blown motor)
71 Fiat 124 Sport Sedan 5 sp (this POS blew out the motor on the interstate on the ride home from college for Thanksgiving – I towed it back home – it and 2 parts cars were all stolen eventually)
69 Dodge Dart Convert 225 slant six (stolen/recovered 3 times – then sold)
62 Dodge Dart 4 dr sedan 225 slant six (sent to crusher due to rust)
62 Dodge Dart 4 dr sedan 225 slant six (restored using parts from above)
65 Lincoln Continental 4 dr sedan – originally owned by my grandparents
73 BMW Bavaria 4 sp (parts car only)
74 BMW Bavaria auto (I installed cut rate springs, larger sway bars and bilsteins – took it to BMWCCA drivers school at Lime Rock in 1984 and had a blast - planned to put in 4 sp from parts car but was eventually totaled by a hit & run driver while parked)
67 Lincoln Continental 4 dr convertible (bought with insurance money from ill-fated Bavaria – this car is a dream to drive - fully restored over a period of many years – still own)
85 Pontiac Grand Prix 6 cyl auto (also stolen/recovered 3 times – then sold)
84 Saab 900S 4 dr auto (real slow but great in snow – a real tank)
90 Saab 900S 3 dr auto (not quite as slow, 4 valves/cyl)
60 Studebaker Lark convertible – needs resto but fun driver – still own
92 Mazda B2600i P/U Truck 4 sp 4X4 4cyl
98 Toyota Prerunner P/U Truck 6 cyl auto – still own
58 Cushman Road King Scooter – restored – has 2 speed suicide stick shifter - tops out at about 25 MPH but loads of fun - still own
00 BMW 328Ci 5sp PP (Style 68 SP wheels) – East Coast Cruiser - Been from Maine to Florida and back a couple of times - still own

Bicycles: I have owned thousands over the years, as I own a bike shop.
