Favorite car that you have owned....

What is your favorite car that you have owned or currently owned and why?

I have only owned 2 cars so this shouldn't be too difficult. My favorite car that I've owned would have to be the 1998 Pontiac Firebird. I learned many things about cars during the ownership of this car....although most of the learned things were due to replacing broken and failing parts. I was able to experience the fruits of installing an exhaust system and other performance parts. It was a very bad day when the car decided that it was no longer going to drive...

I learned how to drift in snow RWD is great! I was able to experience what driving a low to the ground sports car really felt like, and lets just say I enjoyed it quite a bit...well I would type more but it is 5 am here....I should go to bed.

Both of the cars I own now are my favorites thus far

Ferrari 348 spider reason because it's a Ferrari 348 spider nuff said.

Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet reason it is an all round great performer, great cruiser, good on gas and plenty of sex appeal and they are rare.

Tough one, I've loved them all for different reasons. I'd have to say my favorite cars are rentals. I love driving cars I don't own.

The 308 was a dream car and a goal so that would have to be the top of the list. The '73 Challenger I had in high school ranks way up there also, wish I still had that car, it would be worth more than the 308.
The car I've had the most fun in was a '73 Oldsmobile Delta 88 convertible. Lots of memories attached to those 2 tons of steel.

Don't really know if I've had a "favorite" because if I would have I wouldn't have sold the darn thing(s).

By far the nicest and fastest was the '03 Terminator Cobra. What can I say, 12.2 in the 1/4 mile at 119mph at 3600+ lbs. Redfire paint, slight mods and sweet interior. Should have never sold it!!! (Punches self in the head repeatedly!)

Apart from the obvious, the 328, my favourite cars(s) I have owned have been my Audi A4 Cabriolet's. So far I have owned 3 ( a 1.8 Turbo Sport, a 3.0 V6 Sport, a 1.8 Turbo S-Line), and am about to buy number 4 in the next week (another 1.8 Turbo Sport).
Top Gear have started calling Audi drivers 'Cocks', but I can live with that label, I just prefer Audi cabriolets to BMW and Mercedes. The BMW 3 series cab is a drug dealers car, and the CLK cab is the bosses wife or a footballers wifes car.
The Audi isn't the fastest car in the world, I just love them because they are typically German. Well built, reliable and safe, and they are the nicest looking of the four seater convertibles.
