Cars I've Owned Over the Years

Here's a list of all of the cars I've owned and driven over the years. Some are pretty boring, some are mildly interesting, and a few are very interesting and quite collectible. Many had character and a lot of spunk but I have to say every single one of them were extremely reliable and NEVER stranded me except for running out of gas in my high school and college years.

Yep, I'm a sucker for German automobiles. You just can't beat the solidity and bank vault solidness and overall passive and active safety systems. The Audi S6 saved my life when I was rear-ended by an 84 year old man who fell asleep at the wheel of a 10,000 pound Winnebago on the Tappan Zee Bridge. He crashed into me at 45 miles per hour as we were approaching the toll booths on the Westchester  side of the bridge. The rear of my Audi accordion-ed up to the rear glass line and absorbed the brunt of the Winnebago's impact. I walked away with a mild case of whiplash and minor abrasions to the forehead after my head made contact with the sun visors and windshield. The New York State Troopers said I was lucky to be alive and that the car saved my life. I've been driving Audis, Mercedes and BMWs exclusively ever since that accident.
(And so have those New York State Troopers for their personal daily drivers).
