I have a 2004 Saturn Ion that I bought last year (first new car ever) which is great for the number of trips down-state I make. Except for when I got nailed for doing 82 in a 65 last week. Worst part was I was on the phone with a friend at that moment and saw the trooper going the other way but thought I was all right but made the karmic error of saying over the phone "There's a cop, but he is going the other way". So of course he hits the next u-turn and pulls me over.
It was definitely my "Burrito, you are delicious but you are filling" moment for this road trip.

'98 Dodge Dakotah Club Cab 4x4. I love this truck and didn't buy it for the gas milage cuz I spend almost all winter in 4WD, but with the prices the last couple of weeks, I've THOUGHT about trading in, but I haul to much stuff in it to let my baby go. Also, there's the sentimental value of it pissing my ex-wife off that I got this truck back. We bought it together, 6 months later had to trade it in cuz we bought a new house, 6 months later she leaves/divorces me, one year later I get the truck back and she had to sign the title paper for the other vehicle I had in order for me to get this truck back. I still remember her face when I pulled in her driveway in my baby. You talk about priceless..........

1997 Chevy Cavalier that I just bought. Car before that was a '93 Cavalier with 180K miles on it. This one has like 70K. And at least it isn't a station wagon like the old one was. I think I'm getting 30 mpg with it (don't really pay attention).

I own a 1995 Chevy Astro that I bought while I was still DJing. It no longer runs (as of a few months ago), so I've been driving my mom's 1996 Pontiac Grand Am (shout-out to geemoney) that I inherited last year after she passed, and Mrs. Freeze drives a 1995 Toyota Corolla.
I plan to buy a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder before the end of this year, and Mrs. Freeze wants a Toyota Tacoma doublecab or a Subaru Outback by next year.

I currently have a white 2001 Ford Ranger with 43k on it.
The car before that was a grey 1988 Chevy Astro van. My Dad and were able to get about 380,000 miles out of it on the same engine if you can believe it. I rear ended someone going 3mph and totaled it. The cost of the repair was about $700 and blue book value on the astro was $600. So, I guess it's another case of there ya' are.

I drive a rusting 1991 Ford Ranger Pickup truck that has hauled lots and lots of rocks and mulch and dirt, etc, etc for my landscaping business. I hope to retire it to the driveway and buy the Dodge Ram Hybrid when it becomes available and run biodiesel for the diesel part of the engine.
