I had to take my shoes off to count but the CT was number 26. First one was a 59 Ford Galaxy 500 with a 332 interceptor. Blew it up in 3 months.

Quite a history of cars. You can tell it's a real hobby:):
Once emigrated here from England in '57 I was amazed at the cars -- and ever since then I've had quite a love affair with them:

Started with a '65 Montcalm convert in '66 - what a boat.
'57 Ford
'62 Pont. convert.
'68 Barracuda Form S.(first performance car)
'62 Mercury
'63 Chev Nova
'65 Dodge wagon
'66 VW fastback
Part owner of '62 Valiant with transplanted 413ci (drag car).
'68 Chev Convert.
'68 Shelby Mustang convert (GT500) a torque monster.
'73 Toyota Corona
'74 Toyota Corona
'79 Lada
'82 Fairmont
'83 Renault Alliance
'85 Corolla GT-S
'88 Mustang GT
'94 Mustang GT
'84 Tempo
'92 Tempo
'93 Tempo V6
'92 Aerostar
'96 Contour
'98 Contour
'02 Nissan Max. S/E
'02 G35 Sedan
'99 Solara
'03 G35 Coupe
'06 M45 sport
'06 Toyota Corolla
'06 Civic
'06 AccordV6
'06 Acura CSX Type S. (like your Si)
'08 Acura CSX Type S.
'08 Ford Focus
'08 Lex IS-F (what a machine!)still have along with CT.

forgot 2 wheels:
All Suzukis: first GS400T('82), went to a GS750E ('82), and then to an GS1100E('83)--very fast: 0-60 in under 4 seconds and 1/4 mile in 10.99!
I'm glad I survived my biking days.

Yes, that's an impressive list. However, I'm not sure why he's now in a Honda station wagon. ;)

Thanks for the comments!

I'm now 68 and just retired.

The Bravada was my first venture into buying both a "toy" and a "winter driver/grocery getter"! Sometimes we make mistakes. Anyhow, the CT satisfies my needs today for decent mileage, reliability and utility. BTW, it is leased.

past cars

Wow, some interesting cars by current CT owners. It's a challenge to come up with a list. My first new car was a '71 Chevy Vega:( followed by a special ordered '75 Firebird:) Lets see if I can continue the list:
'82 Nissan Stanza
'85 Dodge Conversion van
'85 Honda Accord
'88 Honda Prelude
'89 Honda Civic
'65 RR Silver Cloud III
'65 Lincoln Convertible
'60 RR Silver Cloud II
'53 RR Silver Wraith Touring Limo
'59 Cadillac Series 62 convertible
'91 Jeep Laredo
'93 Jeep Grand Cherokee
'94 Jeep Grand Cherokee
'96 Jeep Grand Cherokee
'99 Jeep Grand Cherokee
'02 Jeep Grand Cherokee
'04 GMC Envoy
'08 Honda CRV-EXL
'79 RR Silver Shadow II
'89 RR Corniche II dhc
'84 RR Silver Spirit
'79 RR Silver Wraith II lwb
'09 Pontiac Vibe
'10 Honda Accord Crosstour EXL
An odd collection of cars, but I still own the '84 and '79 RR's, the '09 Vibe, and the CT becomes my second daily driver. Loved the Jeeps, loved the big Cadillac and Lincoln convertibles, and love my Rolls Royces. Retired a couple years ago at 50 and now spend time showing my classics and I put on detail seminars for the Rolls club. Passionate about cars(old and new) and glad to see CT owners are so thrilled about their new cars!
