Question What other brand of car have you owned?

Simple question - what other brand of car have you owned? Are you a DSMer until your dying breath, or was there a time when you secretly drove a Honda?

My first car was my 90 GS and then I moved up to my 97 GS. This infuriates my father as he has worked for General Motors for 30+ years building Grand Prixs.. The bad thing is that I can't visit him at work and bring my car because the employees there will key it.. severely.

I don't understand this. The DSMs were made in the good ol' USA, Normal Illinios to be exact. The employees there are part of the UAW union, just like your Dad. Sure, many parts in the DSMs are made over seas but I guarantee the Grand Prixs have them too.

I had a Taurus as my first car. My g/f's mom gave it to me. That was a nice car. It was faster than my friend's cars!! hehe. I beat it to hell and now it's sold after 120k+ miles and 6 years of being my g/f's mom's.

My first car was a red '71 Malibu which my stepfather crushed with a front-end loader and took to the local scrapyard for $20. I wasn't old enough to drive it to school yet, but I drove it around loud and proud on the back roads.

Then there was the pickle-green Dodge Dart that I can't even remember the year of. Then I had a blue '73 Camaro I was going to restore with my brother, but in a moment of severe desperation sold it. Took a step down in HP and got an '84 Buick Regal 'cause it was all they had that I could afford and I needed wheels fast. It's ready for the junkyard along with the '84 Ford LTD, which was blown this past December. Tooooooo many miles.

I think it's safe to say, after having all of these other cars, that I fell in love with my DSM from the second I drove it. This list of previously owned cars is pretty... mortifying. I don't even think I should post this...

I have owned many breeds of cars and still have* some:

*1972 Dart Swinger
*1988 Dodge Ram 50 4x4

1980 El Camino
1992 Trans Am
1974 Dart
1969 Dodge Charger R/T
1978 440/4x4 Ramcharger

I love Mopars, probably why I prefer Talons, had a 92 AWD Laser, but they are to plain looking. Although they make great sleepers to an uneducated crowd.

Re: What other brand of car have you owned?

MG!!!

Can't tell me nuthin about haivng to work on the car or unreliable.

Until the B's powertain and brakes etc was completely overhauled it was a week driver weekend fixer. At least the DSM gets 50k between repairs.

My first car was a Ford Tempo, lol. It got me around and never broke down......which is more than I can say about the Talon.
