I drive a 1998 Toyota Corolla, my third Toyota. I had a 1982 Tercel that had 367,000 miles on it when I got rid of it, still had the original clutch, in fact other than one alternator, and tires, brakes, etc. everything in that car was original. My 1998, I now have 135k on it and again, everything original except the alternator. Toyotas rock!

By now I am about 18 years old! Then my mom's 1981 VW Rabbit, then a 1986 Datsun/Nissan Stanza from Canada (would freak out people when the speedometer said 100, but it was in K/PH.), then my uncle's old 1986 Dodge Colt, then a 1977 Dodge Van for work that had a Recarro seat in it, then a 1996 Geo Prizm, then a 1993 Ford F-150 for work, then a 1993 Plymouth Voyager, then the biggest POS I ever had, a 2000 Olds Sillohoutte, then a 1999 Ford Explorer, then a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer, then a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee, then a 2001 BMW 3 Series, then a 2001 BMW Z3 Roadster, then my current car, a 2005 Infiniti G35x.

NEXT: The new body style G35. Reliable like a Camry but handles like a BMW!
A 1970 Olds 98 Convertible w/455? I know which car of yours I would have kept!

367,000 miles? G*d d*mn. I'll be lucky if my 04 Chrysler can hit 90,000

LOL...thanks! That is why we have the truck!
Also noticed...the Ferrari is, of course not a F450, but a F430

Well I got rid of the Murano for a new E350 MB sport. We will be getting rid of the Avalanche for either an ML350 or a CLS550 sport next summer. I'm trying to keep a small SUV in the family but may be vetoed.

Wow, you must be rich. (famous quote from Back to the Future 1985)

I have a Mercedes, but its 20 years old. Lexus too, but its 17 years old.

Before I can afford a 2008 Mercedes, it will be the year 2028.
