    My favourite car was my mazda 6 2006.
    I spent so much time and money turning that into a beast by engine and throne by comfort. It was also my first car so there will always be that extra little love reserved just for it :)

    I love my 2006 Subaru Impreza STI. I bought it used in 2009 with less than 40,000 miles on it. Still my baby to this day!!

    Simple mods to suspension, turbo upgrades, cooling, exhaust, stereo system etc. I think I'll put some pics when i get a chance.

    I hugged the corners so hard on that thing in the hill side curves. Ahh...memories...nightmare for my fiance.

    I like the Imprezas. I would love to see pictures. If you have a lot of before, during and after shots you could even start a build thread and show the progress you made with it step by step. There is still a prize in that section for the first build thread to reach 100 posts.

    I must say that I have a fondness for all of the cars that I have owned so far. I've even been in love with the cars that my parents had when I was growing up. I think that for me, cars are like children, they are all different, and I like them for different reasons.

    That being said, I'd have to say that my favorite car right now is my current car, BMW 325i. I adore:inlove: my car because it is a work horse. It is always ready to go.

    I had a Civic Si that was stolen from me. Think that might have been my favorite car since I bought it brand new and went many places with it.

    We grew up on several acres in the midwest and my dad made us a track and some jumps. No mini bikes for us, he bought us an old Simca Sunbeam and a 60's MG midget that a tow truck driver sold since he had no titles. Both for $100. So I grabbed the MG and my little brother got the Simca. Mine also did not have a hood but we were playing hard with them. So even though I love my old and classics I have had since being an adult, the little MG before I had a license will always have a place in my heart.

    That might sound funny but my favourite car is "Ford ecosport" which is still to come. We are already booked that car but due to high demand it will take a couple of months to arrive.

    As of now my favourite is "Ford fiesta"...

    A 1983 Jaguar XJS coupe. I won’t say it was my money-bought car since I only got it from my father when he decided to upgrade to a SWB 4WD Pajero but all in one I owned it. I loved and adored its looks as it had a classic Sebring white with elite buckskin upholstery and V12 4 litre engine.

    Was not around for long time, but coming back found you comment and this is exactly what makes appealing small cars; not the price tag but that they resemble sardine cans :D

    The fact is that I have always been a solitary wolf and I don't like to have anyone with me aboard a car. It should be just mine, in fact today I like that 2-seat SMART car manufactured by Daimler AG, which is always better that a motorcycle, which I dislike, except for those lovely quad bikes that resemble small cars :D

    Finally about the Renault 5, in those years I would love to have a European Gordini/Dauphin instead, but they were not longer manufactured by then.

    My favorite car was the 1994 BWM 3 series. I loved that little car. It was like driving a go kart on steroids. It was a peppy little car that got fantastic gas mileage. It fell victim to a hailstorm which totalled it. I loved that car. When I finally get to go back to not having to drive the Mom Taxi, I will definitely be getting another one.

    My favorite was the 1962 Thunderbird. I bought so many over the years, and had 3 at the same time (a red, white and a blue one) so I was a tad obsessed. I saw a 63 on the side of the road the other day, but...not quite.

    My Toyota RAV 4, the best thing about it is that is has amazing fuel economy and power. So far it's probably the best option that I have if I want to get from point A to point B for a low price. I live way outside of the city where the roads are far from the best so the 4WD is certainly a good thing.

    I love my FJ Cruiser, but it's predecessor was an '84 4-runner that will always hold a special place in my heart....mostly for the memories of the places it took us to.

    I have never driven a Toyota RAV4 in my whole driving experience however i heard my younger brother say that that car is fuel saving. I always drive a Subaru and really with my financial status I am finding it hard to keep it I would rather go for a Toyota if these cars are fuel saving as I have heard people comment about them.

    My favorite car that I own is a BMW 335i, which is my current car. This car handles and drives like a charm.

    I never driven or owned such kind of a car model. I think it would be my next car model to buy.

    I miss my family's Mercury Grand Maquis, it may have been heavy but man that car was fun to drive.

    My favorite owned car is probably my 2004 Toyota Corolla, of the three I've ever owned. Not my dream car but it has certainly given me good performance and I love everything about it.

    My favorite owned car was my 2003 Envoy Xl and my now 2003 Pontiac CXL. They are both SUV's with third row seats and I like having plenty of space in my car for me or others that may want to ride with me. I also like my 2005 Maxiam, that I sold for the 2003 Envoy. I really wanted a SUV.
