3)  Plymouth Arrow - first car I bought
4)  Nissan Pulsar - it had pop up headlights

6)  Ford Probe - bought because a co-worker told me it wasn't considered a sports car for insurance and I liked his car.
7)  Pontiac Grand Am - didn't like this car

9)  Chevy Tracker - This replaced the two snow cars

Now I have a Honda CRV that I love, love, love.  My father even bought one after I got mine.
