With all of the :plac: that goes on around here, many of us have owned quite a few cars. So I'm curious... what has been your favorite?

Mine is 100% the :poorvette: It's been a riot to own, from BROla brubs to track days to always getting waves and laughs when hauling my bike around to trails with it. It's easy to work on, reliable, sounds amazing... while it is a hugely compromised vehicle, it's always been a blast and every time I have a :plac: flare up, I wind up just keeping it for the lolz. Bang Bus is also high up for me from a memories/ :wub: / adventure standpoint, it wasn't really mine, but I put more miles on that thing than any other vehicle.

If I were to rank everything from favorite to least, it would likely be this:
2003 Corvette
2012 GTI
1997 Shitvic
2014 BMW 328i
1990 Miata
1993 Ford Taurus

The GP was my favorite. I'd gladly own another one, or another R53.

The :meata: is fun, and awesome, but there's something missing in it for me, probably due to my frustrations with being able to track it in my state.

I guess if I had to rank them all...

1. 2013 JCW GP
2. 2006 R53 Cooper S
3. 2009 :meata:
4. 2016 Bro Forks 2
5. 2013 :turboyaris:
6. 2016 :jeep:
7. 2006 Scion xA
8. 2003 :povertytruck:
9. 2018 Coloradoe
10. 1992 Isuzu Trooper
11. 2012 Fucus SE Hatch

I'm kinda torn between my '92 968 and '04 WRX, but the 968 is probably number 1. WRX was a freakin' riot in the winter with snow tarz, and I met a lot of cool car people with it.

968 was different though. I was in a dark place mentally for most of my ownership time with it, but it really gave me drive every day. It went from a sweet DD, epic GT style car to a fully-striped out track rat. Beating up on cars costing WAY more than it was epic amounts of fun, that car had so much grip and handled so well. Lots of time wrenching, but I was able to tackle any project I needed to with it. And it was Amazon Green. :jimp:

STi was definitely my favorite, but the MK7 is a close second. Powertrain from an engagement standpoint is way behind, but the rest of the car makes up for much of that. Sleeper pick is my old '97 Accord beater, those cars were so good for what they were. Double wishbones all around, super comfortable and simple, just great cars.

4.) ZR2
5.) 1991 318is

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Oh this thread actually reminded me of some cars I forgot about.

1. :poorvette:
2. My Outback (never ending project)
3. :wankel: B2200
4. 2005 Sierra
5. 2000 Outback sedan. 1st car and I beat the shit out of it during the winter months.
6. SVX I would 100% own another if it was in good shape. Really great cruiser.
7. Grand Marquis. Although it did potentially save my life.
8. 2002 Sierra W/T. I couldn't reach the passenger door to roll down that window while driving, and it nickle and dimes me like a MFer

Out of all I've owned, I thought the Z06 would be my favorite, but there's something about my 95 Meowta that just makes me think it's the best purchase I've ever made. I think part of it is the fact that I can potentially throw some money at it and do stupid well at local autocross just makes me laugh uncontrollably. And for $3K it's stupid cheap. The epidomy of DFD economics

So my list is
1) 95 Meowta, even with shit compression, it's a fun car.
2) '02 Z06
3) '08 GTI
4) '90 S10 with 9 inches of lift and 33" Thornbirds. DAT 4.3 bolt on lyfe y'all
5) '05 Silverado crew cab. I LOVE the space it has, but don't like the gas mileage.

The rest of my cars were just whatever-mobiles. 87 Iron Duke S10 that was bulletproof, 95 Blazer that was bad ass. But the last 3 or so were finally cars I chose to buy as an adult

1.) FiST
2.) Tuned brodozer (giggle factor, lots of fun leveraging engineering resources to make something silly quick)
3.) Hawkeye WRX - love the form factor, could've been better with some suspension tweaks - love it until it become a reliability/maintenance nightmare
4.) Old brodozer - Old, clean, loud
5.) everything else.

I'd honestly have more to think about ranking the motorcycles, but :whocares:
