supposedly, people who name their cars are psychotic or have psychotic tendencies... Just sayin'!

My current car is a 2012 Accord and it's the first car I've ever owned "brand new" - it's a great car and I really like it a lot, but it will never compare to my 1992 VW Jetta GLI 16v Wolfsberg Edition.
I put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears (not to mention $$$) into that car. Custom body work and a lot of motor work. It was scary fast, but looked even more toned down than the base model. I miss that car so much...
Any time I have a dream where I'm driving, that's the car I drive in my dreams - without exception.
It was so damn fast... A total sleeper. Almost cost me my license twice, it was so hard to drive slow in that thing. I never did find out what the top speed was either because the speedometer only went up to 140. I had it pegged about 1/4 inch past that once and it was eager to give me more, but my tires were only rated for 150 and I didn't want to court death any more than I already was.
I also had an early 80s Toyota something-or-other 4X4 wagon - my first car ever. What a total piece of $h!t. I paid $5 for it and spent $50 on spray paint... such a hoopty. It needed a clutch and I had eaten ramen for over a month to save up for the repairs, then the engine literally blew (piston exploded through the side of the block) the day before I was supposed to take it in. Good timing!
Definitely my least favorite car.
I had a 1982 Cadillac Coupe DeVille that was a lot of fun, I miss that one too. NOBODY cut me off when I drove that thing. My cousin had a brand new GMC extended cab truck with a long bed (vs. the standard size bed) and my Caddy was 6 inches wider and almost a foot longer! We lived in a very old neighborhood with streets that were originally designed for horse/carriage traffic, that was "fun" sometimes.
But nothing compares to my beloved Jetta.
