Cars We've Owned; Debating The Merits of Driving Dynamics: Episode 49

Everyday Driver published on

The guys talk about cars they've owned, and what decisions were involved with their current choices.  Colin M. writes to us asking that very question, and Ross in Maryland asks about something that also relates: which is more important for your first enthusiast purchase, something that's just fun to drive, or a car that makes you a better driver?

    Great pod cast.
    I'm one of those guys who went through cars pretty fast when I was younger. My first car when I was 17 was a 1986 Mazda RX-7 Manual. I learned a lot about driving with car. It was a lot of fun. I had the car about a year then sold it and bought a 1994 Ford Probe GT, by far one of the best front wheel drive cars I have ever driven and still have a soft spot for those cars. After it met an untimely demise at the hands of a 1980 full size van T boning it in a parking lot I bought another Mazda RX-7 an 89. Drove it for a year sold it and bought a 1992 240SX coupe. I had that car about a year sold it and bought a 1991 Eagle Talon TSI AWD. I ended up going through 2 AWD Talons. I had every drive train problem you can think of but that was due to moddifying the car. When the car ran it was a blast. After all the problems and money spent on those two cars I ended up buying the most practical low maintenance car I could find a 1994 Honda Civic DX. no power windows no power steering, the only option was A/C.. After a year I was going crazy and needed something exciting and go into motor cycles. I went through a few a 04 kawasaki ninja 636, a Honda RC51 and my current bike a Ninja ZX-10. That civic was the longest I ever owned a car. I held onto it for 6 or so years. Just recently I picked up one of my dreams cars my CTS-V. Going from a civic to a CTS-V was a big jump. I really missed the fun of a RWD car. Its like re-experiencing the joys of driving all over again after being in the civic for so long. I think people should experience as many types of cars as they can to see what they enjoy and like. You can learn a lot from how the different drive train lay outs can teach you.
