Not a huge list personally but if I add previous generations the list is a little longer.

Grandparents, beginning mid 1920s;

1917 Studebaker 6

1924 Studebaker Big Six

1931 Austin 12/6

1922 Talbot 10/23 saloon

1936 Ford V8 (owned for a very short time in 1946 as he did not like it and replaced with-

1934 Buick Series 40 sedan, body by Holdens Australia. (I still have this one - awaiting restoration which will be a big job)

1956 DeSoto Diplomat SP23 (built in Adelaide South Australia) - owned 1958 to about 1970.

1969 Austin 1300 automatic

1977 Vauxhall Viva Magnum 1800 automatic - bought new and retained by my grandfather until his death in 1984 aged 89.

Unfortunately all of my grandfather's early cars are long gone.

Parents;

1929 Austin 7 Chummy

1950 Jowett Bradford van

1958 Ford Thames 800 van

1966 Commer 1500 van

1975 Bedford Jumbo van

Mother;

1937 Austin 7 Ruby (owned from the mid 1960s to early '70s)

1955 Skoda 1200 sedan (still in the shed awating restoration)

1959 Austin A35 - an aunt bought this new and went through six clutches in 110,000 miles!

1970 Skoda 110L

1992 Suzuki Alto

1999 Suzuki Alto

Me; motorcycles first, from 1969

1952 AJS 350

1950 BSA Golden Flash

1970 Honda CB350 (in 1971)

1971 BSA 650 Thunderbolt (bought new)

1971 Laverda 750SF

1974 Honda XL 350

1976 Yamaha XT 500D (bought new but sold in 1977 when I bought the 1965 Pontiac)

1982 Honda XL500S owned for a short time in the early 1980s

1982 Honda CB450T Hawk - a Canadian market model which a friend brought home to NZ in 1993 and put in my shed for storage 'for a few months'. It was still there 10 years later so he gave it to me to put back on the road. Used sparingly since and has done only 24,000km.

Cars from 1975

1962 Rambler Classic Cross Country wagon (in rhd) owned briefly in 1975 - supposedly the UK importer's 1961 Earls Court Show car.

1938 Buick Special - an ex-taxi with over 500,000 miles up

1934 Buick Model 47 sedan - also several 1934 Buick series 40 projects

1965 Pontiac Bonneville Vista hardtop (I still have this one, although in storage)

1976 Chevrolet Chevette (owned 1984-1991)

1987 Toyota Crown van (GS126V), actually a Japanese domestic market utility station wagon - have had this in daily use since 1991 now with 352,000km and still with original clutch.

1980 Toyota Crown MS112 two door hardtop - Japan-new, imported to NZ in 1990

2001 Nissan Elgrand V6 - purchased 2010 fresh off the boat from Japan

1929 Plymouth 4 - Canadian-built, NZ new 78,000 miles - had since 1995

1928 1/2 Studebaker Dictator GE Royal Sedan (awaiting restoration although I did use it for a few years in the early 1990s.)

1926 Pontiac - one of two bare chassis purchased in the late 1980s and only recently persuaded to run by my teenage sons.

One of my brothers owned a succession of Citroens beginning with a 1947 English-built Light 15 in the 1970s through DS19, ID19 Safari, ID 19 saloon, BX GTi amongst others.

Another brother owned, for a short time in the late 1970s, a 1976 Datsun 120YSSS (B210 to you in the US). The SSS was a NZ special version, built to compete in local production touring car racing. Externally it had alloy wheels and stripes. Under the hood was a pair of Dellorto twin throat carbs, which along with other engine mods made it very quick for its size, and very noisy to drive. A small amount of info here - http://datsun1200.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?viewmode=flat&order=ASC&topic_id=18405&forum=1&move=prev - apparently only about 200 of them built.

My car list is nothing much, but I did own for a while the "remains" of one oddity... a Hillman straight 8. I think it was a 1929 model. Sold it along with most of my other cars, bikes and soul to buy a Ferrari.

1960 Ford Sunliner, 1963 (10 days after I bought the sorry Pontiac)

1953 Chevrolet 210, 1964 (for a work car but sold it before I got it home)

1965 Chevrolet Impala SS convertible 1965 (another mistake)

1968 GMC 2-ton truck, maybe 1974

1973 Ford Pinto wagon, July 1975

1972 Ford Torino (wrecked the Pinto)

1974 Ford F-100

1972 Ford Pinto wagon the only car I ever ran out of gas in. I thought it would get about the same mileage as the 1973 but it was several mpg less.

1979 Dodge Omni, 1980. (a piece of @#%&)

1981 Chevrolet Malibu, 1982

1982 GMC S-15, 1983

1986 Ford Aerostar, 1986

1995 Dodge Shadow

1992 Buick Century wagon.

1998 Ford Ranger SLT, 1998

1998 (maybe) Ford Taurus

2002 Chevrolet 4-door Blazer, late 2002

2000 Ford Taurus

2002 Chrysler Town & Country, maybe 2005 (it was destroyed in a deer collision)

1997 Ford Taurus, about 2006

2010 Chrysler Town & Country, 2010 to replace the 2002

2006 Ford Explorer, 2011.

At the present time we still have the 1997 Taurus, the 2000 Ford Taurus, the 2006 Explorer and the 2010 Town & Country.

I don't buy antiques. I buy diecast models of them not over 16 inches in length. The upkeep is a lot less. Don't ask me what they are. I'm reluctant to even tell you how many of them I have.

I have like many others owned and sold some cool cars. With that said, probably the one I regret most is the 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E side oiler 427 that I purchased new in 1968. Bought it site unseen from a dealer in Battle Creek, Michigan.

Color was Black Cherry, with the same interior. One sold at BJ auction a year ago for $181,000.00. I paid a tad less than 5K for mine.

Shame on me.

OK, I'll play. Here are two groups of cars:

1. Cars I have owned as toys; an asterisk means I still have the car.

2. Cars I have owned as daily drivers, that I'd enjoy as toys today if I still had them.

I've owned lots of other things with engines and wheels that were totally forgettable, except my 2004 Volkswagen Touareg V-8 SUV, which is a mighty fine tow vehicle.

I love those old Imperials they were solid cars and superior to most Cadillacs of the time. I have also love the International travelall, they have so much glass/visibility. In my opinion those 1st generation toronados are undervalued and represent an excellent value and potential investment.

Straight Shooter,

Thanks for the comments. I sold the Travelall just a few weeks ago but that truck was probably the most enjoyable old car I've ever had. It rode very nicely for a truck, the steering was surprisingly accurate, the brakes were terrific, gobs of low RPM torque, tons of room and that quirky style. You're right about visibility too as it's amazing how well you can see all around you. The Imperial was an incredible highway cruiser. Super smooth, effortless power, handled really well, powerful disc brakes, comfortable seats and leather and not a single shake or vibration even at 70 MPH. I drove the car 3.5 hours to Carlisle than back again later that same day with the top down and it was the most enjoyable, comfortable, non-fatiquing drive I ever took. As for the Toronado, I can't believe how undervalued these car are. I've always lusted over these cars and after selling the T'All, I seized my chance to get one. I'm anxious for it to arrive and really get into it.
