    a dark green Peugeot 205 1.6 for the weekends

    And the most badass vehicle of all time: a Tomos Quadro A35.
    Because I live in the city center and parking spaces are expensive.

    I'll start from the newest and go older.
    Parents:
    2013 Ford Escape
    1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    1995 Ford F-150

    Me:
    1995 Subaru Impreza (5spd)
    1988 Ford Mustang
    1986 Chevy K10 (4spd)(8ft bed)
    1984 Chevy Corvette C4
    1983 Yamaha Seca XJ 650 R
    1981 Chevy K10 (6ft bed)
    1976 Chevy Corvette C3

    I know I have a car problem... especially when only 2 cars on that entire list of mine are actually roadworthy.

    Which of your cars are roadworthy, I'm guessing the Subaru might be but I could be wrong.

    The Subaru and the 84 Corvette are both roadworthy. The two K10's are torn apart as I am doing a full frame off restoration on them (why... I have no idea) and the 76 corvette I inherited (kinda... I mean... I worked for it for 6 years, but I didn't pay any money and it used to be my uncles) and that will be my next restoration project. It's currently in another uncles garage where it has been sitting for nearly 20 years.

    Mine was just a measly $184 every 6 months when I had it on its own policy. Now that I have it combined with the Subaru it costs me $356 every 6 months. How a Corvette comes in with cheaper insurance than a piddly little Subaru I will never know.

    Well the C4 in the 80's was making about 250 Horses and I'm pretty sure that most Subaru (Also if you have stocks in Subaru they're down about 2.01%) Impreza have been custom than wrecked

    I think it's because many Corvettes are bought as "lifetime rewards" and then babied in garages, while Imprezas are bought by guys who actually use the performance.

    As for me, I have no car, my mother has no car, and my dad has a 2007 1.4 D-4D Corolla he's had since new.

    Yea sure... Let me restart my computer first so I can get it. Warning. I haven't visited it in a while, so it's kind of an old few pics. Also, as I have stated, it's in need of a restoration. I will post back on here in about 5 minutes with the pics of the C3.

    Edit: I assume that you are checking me on my facts... which is good because there are a lot of people just just say things for some sort of... ego boost? I dunno... but anyways, here they are. The side picture was taken on my old flip phone so it is very low res.

    It only has a 350 and it is an automatic... its been sitting in this same spot for nearly 20 years.

    I currently have a 1993 BMW 318i with just 91.000km that I got this week, and a 2003 BMW 320td Compact.

    The '93 is basically perfect, just needs servicing and it'll be good for me. Though I need to do something about the seats, they're ripped everywhere.
    The '03 is barely roadworthy. I kinda abandoned it when I got the 318i so now the tires are flat, the battery died (i push started it to get it back home from the shop), and the timing chain is making a death rattle and I can't be bothered with it because it'll take me too much time to fix that, and also because I'm gonna sell it soon enough.

    As for my parents, my mum drives a 2005 Fiat Panda 1.2L, and my pops a 2008 Fiat Idea 1.4L.

    Anyways, here are some pics of my babies:


    This is Magliana, the E36:


    And this is Kraut, the E46:
