Let's see - the first car I ever had was a turquoise '75 Chevy Nova. I got it used when I was a senior in high school and drove it till I graduated college, when some sort of spring died and made it undriveable. Although I was able to sell it for the engine, which still worked.
I currently have a black '98 Chevy Cavalier Z24 (no, it's not that I adore Chevys, but there's a family friend who owns a Chevy dealership so therefore gives pretty good deals ). Does it suit my personality? I don't know, but it does suit my philosophy about cars: i.e., I can't see spending a lot of money on a car since they decrease so much in value so quickly - it's almost like throwing money away. I also aim to always have a fairly non-descript car because I drive into NYC frequently and park on the street, so I want to make sure I have a car that no one is tempted to steal or break into.
Although, if I was independently wealthy (right, like that will ever happen *laughs*), my other car would be a Jaguar.
Have to say I agree with the SUV haters here. I hate the fact that because of the overwhelming amount of these huge things I can never see what's coming when I'm backing out of a parking space, or trying to make a right on red.
