96 Impreza Outback (wifes)
98 Contour SVT
00 Legacy GT (wifes)
99 Contour SVT
99 Solara SLE (wifes)
99 Navigator
02 WRX
04 BMW X3

And for extended amounts of time drove a 05 Cavalier and 10 Escape.

The one that I enjoyed the most was the 99 SVT 3.0L

Not a long list for me...

99 SVT Contour
03 SVT Cobra Convertible

I still own both of them... the Cobra is my favorite out of the two however I'd be hard pressed to get rid of either one of them. Nothing like a big honkin' blower that screams and 700 horsepower to get your blood pumping :laugh:

The ones in bold are the vehicles I wish I kept. The BMW only because that was a smooth sweet ride :drool:. The '99 Tred/tan because I poured my heart and soul into the restoration of that car. Sat for 4+ years with a blown motor, low miles, and hacked up inside for some stereo crap.

Ode to the T-red I should have kept :cry:. I will never forget you! http://www.contour.org/ceg-vb/showt...es-away.....&highlight=t-red+before+goes+away

Mine is a short list.

98.5 Csvt - Was totally stock now it's a full 3L, for sure my favorite right now.
05 Escape - The most reliable vehicle we have ever owned. Bought in late 05 and now 100k miles later it has had nothing but normal maintenance done.
06 Passat 2.0T - I could go into the repairs this car has gone through in the one year we've owned it but then I would basically turn this into a complaint post. Car is awesome for everything but reliability, so far.

Three different cars in almost 7 years, not a real impressive list. And I guess I can't say which one I want back since I haven't gotten rid of a car yet.

I should have kept it for sure. The slutty new girl and the wife would have learned to get along :laugh:. The only reason to sell it was the profit I was making as we needed it to work on the house......


Cleanest Contour I have ever owned, even next to EGPLNT the T-red was by far the best. :(

98 Black SVT
06 Cobalt SS Supercharged (FAST/NOT STOCK) (sold after about 1 month) :(
02 Olds Alero, 5 speed, 6 cyl (sold)
89 Chevy S-10 (bought with 60,xxx original miles) (sold)
2000 Silverado, 5.7L with some goodies

The Cobalt was my favorite car due to the power and handling abilities. I still have the SVT and it is by far more fun than the Cobalt. Just not close to as fast and that's okay because it is still fun! And its convenient with 4 doors!

'99 SVT (current - garage queen)

All but the first have been manual.

Favorite? Has to be the Legacy. Having driven nearly 75k, nothing has broken. Can climb any snowy hill. Fits in any Boston parking spot. Kept me safe in a few highway crashes. Still looks new in and out.
