The only cars I know my dad had before I was born, were a black GMC Vandura and either a Dodge Dart or a Plymouth Duster. Beyond those two cars, I have no f*cking idea.

Cars my dad had since had:
A white 1992 Toyota Corolla
White 1990 Toyota Tercel
White Pontiac Trans Sport
Red 2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring, which is his current car

Cars my mom had
Eagle Vista
Steel Blue 2001 Dodge Caravan
Dark Grey 2010 Ford Focus.

My mom did not have any cars before she came to Canada.

I think it's safe to say that Starion's dad wins the cool car ownership challenge (by a mile).

The General's parents lose the challenge (by a mile).

Agreed. Bad-ass list of motors.

Well..... it's a taste question.

In my opinion Illousion's parents had some sweet rides.

And fireguy's parents and family... wow.

You have a really cool family there, man.

Uh...not really. Downsized smogged Cadillacs and automatic Volvos aren't really that cool. Caddys were cool when they were the size of your average WW2 era tank and had an engine bigger than one. Those were cool. Sevilles...not so much. That was nothing more than a little rebadged Nova.

Now there are some actual cool ones there. Although majority of them seem to be owned by other relatives. The Vega drag car and the old Ford street rod were the only notable ones he owned. A 67 Impala wasn't really anything special unless it had a big block.


Starion's dad has owned consistently cool cars and a good number of them have been documented on here for the past half decade.

Not many people here had these in their driveway.

Not to mention the Triumphs, the hot Fords, the SD1, the Twin Turbo Z, and the Turbo Starion.

I find nothing cool or special about a couple of newer BMW's.

But hey, that's just my opinion and as much as i dont like todays cars anyway.

And I got nothing personal or anything against you, Lurch.

30's to 80's.
Now those were the days when they made cool cars. And the best cars.

My dad never passed his test, but my mum has owned (during my lifetime, anyway) a 1st gen Nissan Micra, a 2nd gen Rover 200, a 2nd gen Ford Mondeo and two 3rd gen Ford Mondeos (the first had to be replaced after some moron managed to write it off while it was parked in our driveway).

It's only now I realise what incredible taste my mother had in bland second-hand cars.
