That is a quite a variety. I like it.

1981 For Escort FS2000 (RWD) UK car. (My first car over 30 years ago. Was living in the UK and learned to drive there.) –Sold

1970 Datsun 240z (incredible for its time)–Sold

1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass (Was back in the US and needed a car. It was convenient and that is the only nice thing I can say about it.) –Sold

1976 Triumph TR7 (great fun when it ran)–Sold

1979 Mustang 5.0 (First year of the Fox body style) The first car of mine that my brother totalled.

1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302R(one of the few that was sold to the public for SCCA homolagation into the Trans-Am series.) You guessed it. I get into the Air Force and my brother wadded up this car.

1983 Audi 4000 4E (This one stayed in the family for 20 years and was sold at 293k miles) –Sold

1983 Alfa Romeo GTV 6 (Another awesome driver when it ran) –Sold

1986 VW Jetta GLi (Bought for a Winter car and drive it everywhere for years) –Sold to nepwew.

1987 Honda CRX Si (A wedding gift for my wife who learned to drive stick with it. Had a blowout with Honda over warranty and rolled into a VW dealership to trade it)

1986 VW Scirocco 16V (Loved my Jetta so much I wanted even more VW sport feel) Wrecked and parted out. My brother did not wreck this one. A very nice lady hit it at 50 mph while it was parked.

1989 Ford Probe GT (Leased from a friend who took over his father's Ford dealership) Returned after lease.

1993 Ford Probe GT (Loved the Turbo 1989 and was very impressed the 2.5 V6 in the updated Probe) Returned after lease.

1992 VW GTi 2.0 16v(Monster performance from such a an efficient car. Got to the SCCA Solo nationals in this car. I still have it with a 13:1 race engine that is used for rally and ice racing.)

1990 Mercedes 300e (Gave it to my father and it is still in the family. My brother drives now after writing off his Honda Odyssey. An all around bulletproof car) He has not wrecked this car.

1991 VW GTi 8v (It was too good a deal to pass up. Traded for next car on list.) –Sold

1975 BMW 2002 Tii (Had the full Alpina package. My brother wrecked it beyond any salvation. Still miss the car.)

1996 Ford SVT Mustang Mystic Cobra (Steeda race prepped. Still own it and take it to open track days.)

1997 Audi S4 (Needed a practical and safe car. 1st kid was on the way and my wife loved the S4 as did I.)–Sold

1998 Mercedes Benz ML320 (Totalled when a Lincoln Town car t-boned me in the drivers door at 45 MPH. That ML sacrificed itself for my safety. I was not hurt. 3 people in the Lincoln went to the hospital.)

1995 BMW 540i (Already had an ML430 on order when the ML320 was wrecked. Got the 540i for a steal and drove it for 4 months until the ML430 was delivered.)–Sold

1999 Mercedes Benz ML430 (Still is a daily driver mostly for my wife and will become my daughters in a few months.)

2000 Integra Type-R (Purchased from Peter Cunningham the owner of Real Time Racing. This car was wild, but always had to be above 6000 rpm to really be impressive. Peter is a good friend and he never built this one for racing in the World Challenge series)–Sold

2003 Audi RS6 (A freaky monster of a machine. Never even thought to buy one. We were at an estate sale looking for furniture. The car was not on the sale list. I found out it was for sale and got it for 50% of the loan value. Drove it for about 8 months and sold it for the profit to improve the horse barn. I knew it would cost way too much to keep it on the road for any length of time out of warranty.) –Sold

1987 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel (Farm work truck. It can't be killed. I have tried. Still own this one.)

1974 VW Beetle (Loan collateral that I claimed after waiting 18 months for for my money back. Still have it.)

2005 Mercedes E500 4matic Wagon. (daily driver mostly for me. Found it in South Carolina and got an amazing deal on it. I fell in love with it after I bought it. The car still impresses me today. Hope to get a few more years out of it.)

1987 VW Scirocco 16v (it fell into my lap for $500 and is rust free. Still deciding what to do with it)

Actively looking for an W211 E63 AMG wagon so that my wife will take over the E500 wagon when we give the ML 430 to my oldest daughter. At that point I will be selling the SVT Mustang Cobra, the 1987 VW and the 1974 Super Beetle. All of them for a profit thank god.

Although the model years of the cars is not in chronological order that is the order they were purchased/leased in.

I really want to keep some of them, but with private university tuition around the corner I need to keep pumping up the college fund.

If it is a unique car or has varying virtues I will talk for hours about cars. I am getting older and realize some of the waste in a few of the cars that entered and exited my life. My wife has been amazingly understanding about my passion. I support her equine hobby 100%

I don't have a boat, a plane or a hovercraft. It has been cars for me with a few sport bikes in the mix. I figure if we have to drive cars at least let them be fun, interesting and most of all safe.

Post As requested via PM by member Noobie23.

The current cars and how they came to be. Currently 10 cars in 3 locations. Up 5 this year alone due to a very good year so we did some shopping...

Current Cars:
2012 Mercedes E350 4Matic- Diamond White Metalic/Almond Leather, Parktronic, heated/ventilated seats,P1,P2, sunshade, AMG Package, 4Matic,2 Ipads in the rear headrest with WiFi and much more! Purchased in March of this year after a dear ran into our 2010 E550 4M. Totaled the car and found this one out at Fletcher Jones Newport Beach. Had it shipped to the door.

2006 Mercedes CL600- Purchased in October of 2012 at a dealer on Long Island. Has 48k miles. No issues no far. Stays down there in the garage. Tan/Tan. 4 new tires and all fluids changed when purchased.

2005 Mercedes C240 4Matic- Daily driver. 103k miles. Still going even after four accidents. Granite Grey Metalic over Black. Purchased back in 2008 from Mercedes of Nashville. No issues really with this car. Very reliable.

2002 Mercedes CLK430- Black/Black. Navigation, Heated seats, AMG Package, 73k miles. A solid and smooth operator. Purchased in May of this year from my local shop. Clean PPI and full records. Great car for the money on the used market.

2002 Mercedes E320- Currently undergoing a M120 Swap as of September of last year. Idea that started out as a joke with friends while having drinks/cigars has now turned into a full blown inside/outside build. Interior mods are alcantara headliner, dash and doors. Ipad mini setup with wifi. Purchased one year old from a dealer in Pennsylvania. Car has 150k miles. New engine/transmission has 80k miles. Black/Black. Looking forward to that day where I can call it the "EV12"

2002 Porsche 911 C4- Purchased last September when looking for a AMG. Went into the dealer to look at a W211 E55 and a young lady trading this car in the day before. Tiptronic, AWD, Heated seats, great MPG and reliability. I could not say no to it! Had 49k miles today it has 60k due to a trip from NY to FL and some time down in the keys. A great car that I never thought I would fall in love with. I try to drive it often. Replaced battery, tires, pads, oil change. No issues so far. Silver.

1999 Ferrari F355- Blue on Tan. 6Speed. Purchased in June of this year from a gentlemen in my neighborhood in Florida who had two. Wife wanted one gone so we got it at a great price. Loving every second of this. Very addicting car that turns heads even in Sarasota where Ferrari is a dime a dozen. Needed nothing and so far so good! I hope to take it to some FChat/FLife events. Has 18k miles

1987 420SEL- Had this since 00. W126 Body cars are easy to work on, Good looking and solid build! Old style Mercedes that is classy and can be worked on by anyone. A true gem and lost art. Has 120k. It does not get driven too much and may sold in the next year.

1955 Ford Crown Victoria- Funny story on how this came to be. A gentlemen came to us looking to store it in our warehouse. He passed away and his family gave it me. It needs some work but overall very good and a time warp. Has 79k all original miles. Who knows maybe someday a full restoration will be done. That would be a real project car!

2011 Dodge Caravan- To haul the junk, snow blowers, lawnmowers, family drives on vacation. Its a Chrysler... Not too much more to say...

2015 Dodge Caravan (9K) NY
2012 Mercedes E350 4Matic Sport (40K) NY
2006 Mercedes CL600 (48K) NY
2005 Mercedes CLK55 AMG Coupe (28K) FL
2005 Mercedes C240 4Matic (200K) NY
2004 Mercedes CLK320 Cabriolet (45K) FL
2002 Porsche 911 C4 Coupe (69K) NY
1999 Ferrari F355 6 Speed (17K) FL

Wow you own 10 cars at once, I hope they cut you a deal with car insurance. If you did a list of all the cars you owned since your first car it would probably take up the whole page!
