Older than dirt. First car I bought my wife was a used  37 Buick business coupe. Paid $137.50 for it. Nice car. The kids rode in the back sitting on the floor. Absolutely the worst P.O.S. I've ever owned was a 1968 Buick wagon. I've got 2 Buicks now. ..........Bob

Just had my 78 birthday, I agree with Brian, you can never own too many cars or have enough garage space.

In all that time I have owned just 2 foreign cars, a 58 Ford Anglie, and '62 A-H Sprite,

First Buick was a 1955 Special 2 dr , 6 other Buicks,'39 Century and 11 Reattas.

In addition I have owned at least 35 Corvairs and still have one.

I will think about all the others, and give a tally later....

Forgot 2 -1989 Lesabre T types and a 1991 LeSabre in the Buick count.
'64 Chevelle, 67 Tempest Safari, 1973 Olds Cutlass Saloon, 1982 Toranodo, '69 & '70 Corvette, 3 GMC pick-ups, '84 Eldorado,

First car was a '63 Buick Special station wagon.  After that a '68 Opel station wagon, then a bunch of Opel GT's, hundreds of Buick company cars for my work.  Too many cars and a lot of trucks that I have owned to even try to remember or count.  Currently have about 10 around the house and stashed in a bunch of places with most in my list below.

Soon to turn 75,

I've had well over 200 vehicles,

Buicks:

1971 Centurion convertible - sold back in the 1980s

1982 Century Limited 4-door sedan - bought new May, 1982 - least dependable car I ever owned - electric fan relays caused overheating

1914 B-37 Touring - wonderful driver - sold to a friend in Texas

1934 34-57 Sedan - great Tour/driver for a dozen years, then restored to AACA Grand National Senior - sold to friend in Nevada

1937 Roadmaster 80C -  Fiorello LaGuardia's Parade Car as New York City Mayor - AACA HPOF-ORIGINAL 13,xxx miles - great driver - all original

I am 68 yrs and have had 16  cars and 5 pickup trucks that I remember.  7 were Buicks. Also from the time I was licensed to drive at 16 until I left home after college my family had 4 Buicks, 1 Firebird (later given to me after I married) , one IH Scout and 2 pickups. (There was nothing slower than the 4 cyl. Scout with the snowplow in the front.) 

Currently I have 4 Buicks,  1952 Special, 1967 LeSabre. 1967 Riviera and 2016 Cascada.
