My Ride: just an M3, sort of
I've had 13, but 5 of them were e36's, including the current one. some notables are my 91 mustang LX 5.0 hatch (far from stock), 06 pontiac solstice (wifes current DD), and my 95 ranger that was mildly lifted and had some nice big tires on it, 4.0, 5spd, and off road package was the only option.

My Ride: 3 pedal 3.0 facelift
'97 318ti, rear ended which bent the frame. Still lives on in Google maps street view. Great car, was sad to see it go, but my e46 healed the wounds nicely
