I know this is going to sound trite, but my current E90 is the best car I've ever had. It has done exactly what I bought it for, an affordable car that had to last a long time, stay in shape while doing it, and get past 250,000 miles (my target for any car I buy). I've got well more than my money out of it. I'm astonished at how well the E90 ages and accumulates miles considering how hard it can be driven on a daily basis.

I've had objectively better cars, but to this day my old s2000 still ranks as my favorite.

I'll have to say s2000 as well, slower than a toyota sienna but that motor transmission combination with a chassis that's as stiff as a coupe with the top down is hard to beat (still haven't been in a GT3 though so I'm willing to bet that might win).

My S2000 was a great car and definitely one of the best. But I'd have to say my current E90 M3. It has never let me down and nothing sounds better to me than that redline.

E86 Z4M. Although the E92M3 is a very close second.

Classic BMW design. Was fun to drive. Looked great on the road. It wasn't an e46 m3, but I preferred the look of it to the m3. It was a great car that did a little bit of everything well and had a solid reliable engine that was easy to work on.

Would love to have a brand new one again.

It's a toss between the 335d and the C5 Vette. If the Vette had better suspension and an updated interior I think it'll be my favourite.

Plymouth duster could run over curbs, leave it unlocked, jump on the roof or hood, and its probably still running somewhere.

2003 Evo 8, but the F80 is catching up quick. Just had so much fun in the Evo...autox, rallyx, road trips, sliding around in the snow...

Since I haven't had my first BMW more than a couple of months, I can't really count it. That's too bad, really, because it would be at the top if it lives up to expectations... That aside, the best is my '01 Ford SVT Lightning. Comfortable, reliable, good looking, and just plain fun to drive. Oh, did I mention fast? 450hp at the rear wheels makes for some fast. Bought it new, and to this day when I walk out of Walmart and look around at all the other cars I still get that "Oh, Yeah!" feeling when I spot it.

Weirdly, I'd say my 1990 Mitsubishi Gallant GSX

I paid... I think $550 for it. It ran and drove like a champ. AWD. It was a blast on snow and gravel. Sold it for $2000.

I regret selling that car. It was amazing. It's great to have a car that's cheap enough to just flog without a care.
