My first car was a 1981 Plymouth Horizon. It was a practical car, and it served me well for a few years. But, I traded it in for my first pickup truck, and I've owned pickups ever since. I owned a 1984 Mazda RX-7 for two years before trading it in to get the Porsche 911. I sold the Porsche and got a Mercedes 300E. After a few years, I sold the 300E and didn't buy another car after that.
As for fave cars, there's nothing I'm lusting for. In the mid 1980s, I subscribed to half a dozen car magazines, and now I don't even know what's on the market. The only vehicle of interest to me now is an electric car, capable of highway speeds, and enough range for the ten mile round trip to and from town plus a few miles for errands. For nostalgia's sake, I wouldn't mind owning a 1971 440 big block 'Cuda, but there's no overwhelming desire for it.
