This is a fun thread. After posting and reading other posts, I started to search for my first car online but sadly I cannot find the 88 Integra anymore! It would be fun to own that car again.

I have always kept my car for as long as I can, in order to save money. But now that I'm 40, I have changed course and want to own all the cars I want before I can't drive anymore haha.

I hope to never own another car without the third pedal.

You had the 5000 I see. I thought they had a bad reputation. How many miles did you have on it? I had the 4000S, the 5000 was a 5 cyl right?

yep. I honestly have no idea the mileage on it when the car finally died. The odometer crapped out a while back at about 159k, and we think that there was probably somewhere around 300k when it finally went. It was a real good car to me

I had a 4000. It was the first European car I owned, and I loved its design. It was utterly gutless, unfortunately. It was totaled in a terrible hailstorm about 9 months after I got it.

The inside of my 4000s looked almost identical to a VW jetta at the time. Kinda turned me off Audi's after that.
