Garage List
My spouse and I tend to keep our cars for a long time. I have owned more than one car at a time but my spouse has always been a one-car-at-a-time person. We also very seldom drive each other’s car. The only exception has been the shared 1973 Corvette and 1991 Mazda Navajo.

Me (in order of purchase)
1966 Pontiac GTO – 389 tri-power (three two-barrel carbs), 360 HP, 4-speed manual (a beast!)
1969 Corvette – 350 four-barrel carb, 350 HP, 4-speed manual
1962 Corvette – 327 four-barrel carb, 340 HP, 4-speed manual (bought to restore, never did)
1973 Corvette – 350 four-barrel carb, 250 HP, automatic (the only auto I have ever owned - got a great deal and bought it for resale but wound up keeping it for several years)
1980 Toyota Corolla SR-5 Hatchback – RWD, 5-speed manual (a great little car and my first “new car” purchase – kept it until 1991)
1986 Porsche 944 – 2.5L 150 HP, 5-speed manual (bought new – fun to drive but painfully slow – sold it to nephew in 1996)
1991 Mazda Navajo – 4X4, 5-speed manual (bought new – POS – got rid of it as soon as I could)
1992 Jeep Wrangler – 4X4, 5-speed manual (bought used from neice – fun to drive, great off-road vehicle and daily driver – sold it to a friend in 2011 to make room for the BMW I planned to purchase)
1993 Nissan Pathfinder SE – 4X4, 5-speed manual, leather and all the options (bought new – great truck and only one of a few in the USA with 4X4, 5-speed manual, and all the options – I still use it and just turned 60,000 miles)
2012 BMW E92 335i – xDrive, 6-speed manual, all the options (bought new for me as 37th wedding anniversary gift – love it as semi-DD and especially for holiday and other out-of-town trips)

Spouse (in order of purchase)
1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint – 230 IL 6, OHC, 207 HP, 4-speed manual (this was a great car, imagine an American car with an OHC engine in 1966 - the “little Sis” to the GTO!)
A couple generic Chevrolet 2-door automatics (1972 Chevelle and 1973 Monte Carlo)
1983 Toyota Corolla SR-5 Coupé – RWD, 5-speed manual (first “new car” purchase)
1986 BMW E30 325e sedan – 5-speed manual, all the options (bought new – great car – totaled by inattentive driver in 1996)
1996 Nissan Pathfinder – 4X4, 5-speed manual, leather and all the options (bought new – rare full luxury with 4X4 and 5-speed manual)
2006 Volvo XC-70 – AWD, automatic (bought new – fantastic car!)

EDIT: Forgot the bikes (all mine)
1965 Honda 50 Sport
1966 Honda CB-160
1973 Honda CB-450
2012 335i X Drive Coupe - BSM/Black, 6MT, M Sport, Premium, Navigation, Apps, Black Grille, 313 Wheels, and more...
