How many cars listed here were actually owned by you guys. I think that ya'll are listing cars that you rode in. I'm 56 and I've owned 11 cars and that includes the ones I have right now. That means that I have had seven cars in my past.

Uh oh, I might have to count the Renault Dauphin my Dad bought in a bar for $35. I had to go find it. He remembered buying it and he had the keys, but he never actually saw it, and he kinda knew where it was. My friends and I finally found a Renault and the key started it, so it must have been the right one. It lasted a couple of months until the engine literally exploded with parts littering the California freeway. I coasted up an offramp and walked away from it. Never saw or heard of it ever again.

So, that makes eight cars.
