I work at a detail shop so I've driven quite a few cars, but heres the ones I've driven outside of work and school (drove many many cars at my vocational school) that I can recall: I'll try to put them in order of when I drove them if I can remember.

1969 VW Beetle Convertible 1600 4 speed (first car i ever drove)
1992 Olds 88 L27 (oldest sisters old car)
1993 Olds 88 L27 (oldest sisters current car)
2000 Bonneville SSEi (moms driver)
2002 GP GTP Supercharged (dads summer driver)
1990 GP SE Turbo (dads beater)
1990 GP STE Turbo (mine)
1993 GP LE 3.1 (older sisters old car)
1992 Buick Century 3300 (friends beater)
1994 Mustang GT 5 speed, mild mods (same friend as above, summer car)
1990 Olds Cutlass Calais Quad 442 5 speed (my beater)
2004 Monte Carlo SS Supercharged
1990 Lumina Euro Turbo (mine)

I'm sure there were a lot in between there that I missed but those are the ones I recall off the top of my head that were outside school/work.

Well, I'm 19 and broke and i've owned 3 3800'*..

1989 Buick LeSabre Limited - First car.. loved it, and i still own it for insurance purposes

1995 SLE Bonneville - 2nd car, and it was CLEAN! However, it got nailed by a semi at slow speeds and the semi crushed the front half of the car and totalled it.

1996 SSEi - Present, so most of you know the story.


and i was in a 2005 GTO last week and it was nothing short of amazing! The addition of the split exhaust, hoodscoops, and 18" wheels really completed the exterior. The interior is immaculate also. If i had the 30k, i'd definitely hit it. FAST!!!!
