Right... So if you just count the number of cars people posted you would have the number... For the record, we actually have also had the "how many" type threads come up more times than I can remember. For example, I know Destroyer has owned close to if not over 200...

In any case, somewhere between 34 and 36 for me. I lost count.

Me? Not too bad now actually. Been like 4 years since a claimed wreck on the Fleetwood, married, and now 27, so past the young male penalty. Something to consider as well, in 11 years of driving, the average person would have put on 123,000 miles or so. Me,

Volvo, 8k miles
Cutlass 60k miles
Town Car 24k miles
Eldorado 40k miles
Fleetwood 80k miles
Mark IV 2k miles

Mom's BMW, 10k miles
Mom's truck 20+k miles.

So overall, I've done over 240k miles, nearly twice the national average. Damn that adds up quick. :)

Florida -- its impossible to drive anywhere without some absent-minded person slamming into your car.

Sounds about right. So far it's only happened to me twice:

Once in the school parking lot, I was sitting in my car on the phone because it was raining, and I didn't feel like walking through it. I had pulled all the way through a pair of parking spaces, so it was as if I backed into one, and the one behind me was free. Guy pulls into the spot behind me too fast and hits me. He gets out and suspiciously looks at both cars and I notice the expression on his face change. I get out of the car and he's freaking out because he shattered his aftermarket fog lights and broke his license plate frame off - chipped some paint on the back of my car. Whatever.

Second time, I was on my way home for the summer and stopped for gas. This douchebag in an 3-series of some sort comes flying around the building and I swerve to avoid him, and I tapped a concrete pole (at like, 10mph?) I backed up, went to my pump and noticed that my bumper cover was cracked. I went inside, figuring he had just left, and he freaks out at me like I'd done something wrong and puts his hands on me and starts shaking me asking "WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU DIDN'T YOU SEE I WAS COMING?!" I walked out, threw $5 in gas in the car, did some things I "shouldn't" have, and filled up somewhere else.

I hate Florida.

Why does it seem that certain types of people own certain types of cars.

Like in Stings post, it seems like most of the 3 series owners I've ever known were @$$holes. Same goes for most WRX and EVO owners. Everytime I see one of those cars, I think "dumbass".

I swear a certain type of machine attracts a specific personality.

Stingroo

I've noticed that with EVO owners, but most WRX owners I've seen were older guys around here, except my one friend who had one in high school. They're not all that common down here as it is, though. But yeah, I agree, something about certain cars or trucks definitely attracts certain types of people.

And then there's oddities like me and my wagon. :lol:

My favorite thing about having owned a 3-series was hanging out at e46fanatics.com. Those guys are a riot. They're a somewhat materialistic and fashionable bunch of guys and girls, but they're easy to get along with. Almost all of them are ambitious 20somethings.
I wish I had gone to 4ngiefest: http://4ngiefest.com/

Saab guys are really friendly and usually very down to earth. I find them easy to trust. I guess living in a cold place like Sweden or Maine requires a certain personality.

Classic BMW guys seem to be the same way. Easy to trust and REALLY into their cars (lol, hi Rick).

Nissan guys are a mixed bag -- you have the annoying personalities with 350Zs and GTRs (for some reason, the douchebags havent gravitated to the 370Z yet), but most everyone else is friendly with very open personalities.

Cadillac guys have the most contrast of all. You have several generations of people under the umbrella of one brand. You get everything from people in Escalades with 26s to nerdy guys with Sevilles and Eldorados. I noticed that among IT professionals, later K-body cars are quite popular, as is the '05-'11 STS. Cadillac owners over the age of 55 tend to be very friendly, easygoing people.

When you go through a lot of cars, you do waste a ton of money, but you get some really interesting experiences.

This is actually something I've grown to appreciate and I agree 95%.

Back when I was driving truck full time, I used to meet a lot of people on the job where small talk was kind of essential. It was amazing the amount of times I'd unexpectedly fall into a conversation about old Cadillacs. What was really neat was the amount of younger guys, like myself.

The only thing I don't agree on is the IT professionals. Knowing quite a few myself, I usually find they are at one extreme or the other: either completely not caring driving a 2001 Ford Taurus or really into their $80k Land Rover, well out of Cadillacs range.

Let me reword that. Among K-body owners here, IT guys make up a good portion of them, more so than other models.
