Hmm..I thought I posted in here but I guess not...it'* short right now anyways.
In order:
1995 Pontiac Grand Prix SE
1971 Plymouth Satellite Coupe (project in progress)
2002 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI (taking time and $ away from the project)

Was getting a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport, but my uncle rolled it 2 weeks before it was officially mine so there went that. Right now I am looking at possibly picking up a 1971 Dodge Demon as another eventual project car, but i have 2 of them right now as it is.

1985 Chevy *-10 Blazer 4x4, 2.8L "Rot-chester" carb, 2-door, lots of rot, my father purchased new

1994 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2L, 5-sp., 2-door (bought for $400 with 77k on it, I got t-boned on black ice in Feb '11 with 238k, ORIGINAL CLUTCH!!!) BEST CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED, most reliable and cheapest maintenance!
1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, 2.8L Multiport with 45 psi oil pressure at hot idle, had on road for 5 months until a drunk driver creamed my front driver fender between 80-100 mph while he was running from the cops, got this car for free and put $1200 into it before the crash
1987 Buick LeSabre 3.8L SFI, fifth owner, bought at 110k miles for $200, still driving her

Mom'* cars:
1973? Plymouth Duster, slant 6, former Hertz car, sold due to frame rot
1978 Oldsmobile Omega Brougham, 305 V8, relegated to spare car until the tranny went with over 300k on it
1987 Pontiac 6000 */E (oh my gawd what a piece of junk it was...) Two 2.8L Muiltiport engines with 0-5 psi oil pressure at idle, TCC solenoid went at 238k, an accident with a tanker truck that tweaked the frame when it was 2 years old, burned through endless O2 sensors, MAF sensors, TPS sensors, CPS sensors... After the accident it became a MONEY PIT, but it was comfy and when she ran right, she was a great car, complete with optional gauge package
1997 Chevrolet Cavalier LS, 2.2L electronic 4-sp auto, car was incredible in the snow, currently sitting with a bad engine, about ten feet behind where I sit (the garage is my man cave), bought with 65k, currently has 121,500 on the chassis

1995 Pontiac Grand Prix LE 3100 SFI, crashed with 238k on original motor and tranny
1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, survived catching itself on fire, and numerous drives between CT and Oregon, burned a valve, then the frame rotted out
19xx Mistubishi Precis, total junkbox, had to wrap a bungee around the brake pedal to pull the pedal up after stopping so that you could drive again
19xx Ford Courier - he still has the tires and seats in his storage unit

Yeah, for the most part, we're a GM family.

An interesting point about the Duster...

The oil dipstick was broken, so it did not reach the pan. My mother knew to add oil to the car when the engine started knocking. She would literally hear the engine knock, pull over, add a quart of oil, and get back behind the wheel and drive. Knowing the slant-6 is a bulletproof motor, I'm not surprised.

3. 1979 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
4. 1983 Buick Riviera Convertible (owned 30 years, still going strong)
5. 1984 Dodge Rampage
6. 1988 Pontiac Bonneville
7. 1989 Buick Electra T-Type
8. 1991 GMC Syclone
9. 1994 Cadillac Eldorado
10. 1972 Plymouth Roadrunner (bought used and restored)
11. 1965 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible (bought used and restored)
12. 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada
