Hey everyone. Lately I've been looking for a way to get rid of my car, and have been thinking back on all the cars I've had over the years and how I hated some of my cars with a passion. What cars have you had that you loved, hated, or both all at the same time?
For me, the 1988 BMW 535i I had during my aol days was the greatest car I've ever had. It was fast, rock solid, pretty, and also a great conversation piece. Sadly, it got the dreaded shimmy that afflicts so many high mileage e28 BMW 5 series sedans, and it became more sensible to replace it with a ford contour than to fix it. I still regret selling it, but one day plan to buy another to fix up right and never sell. The Ford Contour was a treat - v6 with the five speed, I got a few too many tickets with it. The Ford Focus I currently own is nice and invisible to police, and incredibly functional. I packed everything I own and moved from Florida to western PA in it. Unfortunately, the car eats brake pads and rotors every 15k miles. It's on its third transmission (ate the second gear syncros quite a few times). I bought it with 23k in feb of 04, now it sits in my yard with 54k on it. I can't drive anymore due to reemergence of epilepsy, so she sits in my yard.
