in undergrad i started off with a black corvette, then a hunter green stealth when the vette was stolen, then a jeep wrangler sahara for the last two years.  the jeep was my favorite car ever.
all paid for by me since i was a non-trad.

i'll be going to law school with my current car, jeep grand cherokee ltd with 120k miles (driving 2 hrs for work the last 5 yrs will rack up the mileage).  i can't remember the last time i had car payments.  hope i never have to worry about those again.  i'll just drive this one until it konks out and save up money for a new car.

Hey, I think I am in the running for oldest car here:
1997 Chrysler Sebring convertible
I love it nonetheless.  But it will stay behind for law school... :(

I got you beat.  1994 Honda Civic.  And yes, it's paid for.

GOTTA LOVE SUVs

No. Actually I hate them with the passion of the fire of 1,000 suns. Especially hatchbacks with a lift kit like the rav.

(Not knocking you personally- just your car)

I hate 'em too. Perhaps my european orientation has something to do with it, I dunno. My girlfriend drives one, but I still hate suv's.

Don't own a car at the moment, but will be buying an orange (or maybe silver - still haven't decided yet) Honda Fit (2007 obviously as it's a new model) sport version for law school during Memorial Day weekend.

I drive a 2004 BMW M3. I am a 22 year old male. I have totaled a car before (not my fault). My insurance payments are not fun.

My Jeep was old enough to be a 1L when they built your Honda.

1985 Mercedes 380SE that is currently in the paint shop. Just had a 5.7 liter engine put into it based on a Mercedes M117 560 engine, with lightweight 10:1 pistons, custom super-lumpy cams, jet-hotted tri-y's, other stuff...it's absolute nonsense. I'm thinking about going to a standard cam. Oh, and for the record, though it may be a 1985, that's back when MB made cars right and all of the mechanicals were still going strong, this was out of want, not need. Parents know it's going into paint, but they don't know about the $19k of mechanicals that have gone into it...they won't be pleased, oh well what's done is done.

Sheeeeesh!!! 19G's!! I want to mod my car and hook it up a little bit, but I do not know about all of that, but I would rather stay in the $10K range, but thats including audio upgrade and I want a Navi kit added too... Yea I am still driving me crazy. But where or who do you look at to get that work done?

HA!  I drive a 1990 Volvo 240 Wagon with just over 200K miles on it, and I LOVE IT.  So what if only one speaker works and the windscreen wipers only work on one speed - it has character.  I'm totally against owning a new car until I can REALLY afford it, and I'm more interested in saving money for law school than owning a new car.  Plus, it helps when your car is only worth about $1500 - my insurance payments are about $60/month :)

Alas, the Volvo will not be making the trip to LA with me, so we're taking my boyfriend's 2007 Civic Hybrid, and I will be investing in a bike - although I really need to investigate a route from the apartments to campus that doesn't involve getting on the 405 on a 10-speed...

Has "The ladies wild" already been given as an answer?

We all knew that already.
