I've owned too many to list. Much more than that.
Miata is the 1st car I've had for over a year (going on 3 years now). Before that I consistently went through 4-8 cars a year.

24 owned, not counting personal "flips" or the collectibles we're still exporting to Europe. (Family side-business...)

Max owned at one time, four. Average possession, three. Last time I didn't own a car, 1980...

I've been driving for 13 years, so most of them I didn't have long. Also, most of the time my driveway has 4 cars in it. I think I owned the 300zx the longest, like 1.5 years...absolutley loved that car. It's like a jap muscle car. I owned the Genesis Coupe for 1.25 years but I only drove it for 6 months before it pissed me off enough and the wife took it over to save gas.
