List your alternative rides...

Share with everyone you currently have (including your treps, concordes, 300Ms), and all you've had before (include the includes) along with a short description.

The below are mine, in order of acquirement.
EDIT: I'm by no means a ricer...the Toys I got are all stock...nothing added to them. I'm too frugal to throw money around like that.

1979 Chrysler Codoba 360ci - My first car. Bought it for $200 bucks in 2002 and all it needed was some carb tuning. As it was the only driveable vehicle at one point, a line from the tranny pump that someone spliced into tubing w/o removing the sharp edges turned a 10$ into a 600$ fix from a parts Cordoba. Drove this most of the time when taking college classes 35 miles away.

1992 Ford Tempo GL 1.4L - Got this one in 2004 after graduation and worked 2 semesters in the ITN room at the college extension I took classes at. Decent car at the time that only needed a water pump and starter after they went out. Only big issue was the thing would idle FAST and would do 40mph under its own power. (Just got rid of this thing last saturday after it sat for 4 years).

1978 Toyota Corolla Deluxe Liftback 1.6L - Bought it in 2005 for $300 and has seen the biggest dump of money of any vehicle so far. Got it because the Tempo's operating problem was a mystery and wanted a vehicle I could actually work on. At the time since didnt have the time to do the work myself: $300 when head gasket blew...$300 when the main rear seal blew...$700 when an exhaust gasket ended up with a chunk the size of a pea went missing out of an exhaust valve (drove it like this for bout 3 months so I had numerous backfires and less power till I got it fixed...300 more of that for the front seal and timing chain and ~100 for carb kit that made it run WORSE so have the carb from the parts corolla in it. Other than that, its been a good car and since I can never get any return for selling it, I'll be re-ringing it and switch the auto tran out of this for the 5-speed manual from the parts 77 mentioned below. R/R wheel bearing went out so it sat for 6 months...

1977 Corolla Deluxe station wagon 1.6L - Got it in 2006 and planned to have this as the other vehicle as well, but keeping it running turned out to be too big a problem so it is now the parts car for the 78.

1985 Dodge 250 Custom Van 318ci - Got it in 2006 for $800 cash next day when the price was $1000 obo, 2 days before my Corolla's main rear seal blew...so I had a vehicle to drive while it was in the shop. Only needed the water pump replaced a few months back when the bearing started to go out.

2004 Dodge Intrepid SE 2.7L - Got this in Aug 2007. Lot price said $10800...but being my first car purchase on credit and no credit to speak of, the creditor it got financed through wouldn't let it got for anymore than 8500ish. Put up with $300/m payments for 7 months @ 25% interest which would have meant 16k price tag. Now its refinanced to 7.5% and only 10k and I'll still save 4grand on it even if I include the total of prior payments. No repairs as of yet needed...first time a vehicle has so far gone 2+ years w/o incident. But have had a couple scares with it. Bought this the day after the Liftback went out...and since the only other vehicle running was my van and it was in use by the folks...I couldn't very well use it and leave them with nothing. So I broke down and got a "new" car about 8 months sooner than planned. After getting this I finally got the 78 fixed but atm it just sits awaiting the tranny swap.

1981 Toyota pickup (SR5?) 2WD 22R 2.4L - Got this back at the start of September. We NEEDED a pickup to help get trash hauled so now I have this. Water pump froze up on the way to work during Labor Day. The odo stopped working as did the temp guage so now it has a 3-guage cluster in it for oil pressure//temp//voltmeter. Since I constantly calculate my MPG, partially as one way to tell me if the engine is having a problem, I have the speed//odo from the parts corolla in it for now...only prob is the parts one goes to 110 and the trucks original only went to 85...so 55mph is at around 65-70 on the corolla one. Anyone know a good place to get a good replacement speedo for an 81 Toy pickup? This truck also has 15in rims on possibly from a Chevy, that were put on by the previous owner. They stick out about 1-2 inches past the fender and when I hit a bump the front hits the fender (the front suspension is shot with maybe a half inch between the rubber stop and the strut itself. But I'm looking to replace the wheels with stock and change out the shocks as soon as I can spare the funds for half way decent ones.

My descriptions are probably a bit longer than necessary, though I'm sure some of you have your own that would be worthy of novellas or entire book series. I could have gone on longer for a few of them but decided not to. Feel free and add yours here.

It'd take me all year to list everything I've ever owned, and I'm only 25, we'll stick with current rides..

2000 Intrepid - Wifey/Family ride
2003 Silverado - My regular cab truck/toy I daily drive and our entire family can't fit in..
2007 Kawasaki ZX6R - Toy/Wheelie Machine/Cop Magnet

Going to replace the Ninja with an 05-08 GSXR 1000 before next season, and I'm thinking of replacing the Silverado with another Intrepid. If I do I'll get a beater truck, I can't go without having a truck..

Most missed ride? Probably going to be my old 1995 Mustang GT.

Im sure its a neat car, but im not sure 260hp and 310ftlbs in a large car qualifies as "most badass ever"
