I love all brands. Not a one brand guy. Wife drives a Toyota Sequoia, daughter drivers a Explorer. The only problem is that every month there is a registration due. I guess it’s a nice problem to have. 

Yeah I'm the same way, although I would say Toyota is my favorite.I have a toyota, chev, plymouth and ford right now. In the past I've had lots of different brands of car.

Here are mine...

1971 MGB GT, 19,700 original miles, was a Hawaii car, sat for many years, slowly fixing it up - currently undergoing a complete re-wire

2019-09-02_01-44-06

My first car was a 71 B GT in that color! Sadly, I totaled it less than a year later.

My current toy is a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata. I’ve since switched to lighter aftermarket wheels.

Dragged this out into the sunlight on the weekend...

The 24 year old paint is needing some attention, and has a few rust bubbles popping out around the rear window, so it's due for some attention this year.

I daily drove this bug through the months betwixt snow seasons for 6 or 7 years. Most fun car I've ever owned. Slowest, too. ;)

Don't think we've put more than a couple hundred miles on it in the last 10 years.

Currently under construction! 😄 But I can't wait to cruise it. It's a 1972 Datsun 510

my 66 nova.. 434 sbc.. dart block with airflow aluminum heads. custom ground nitrous cam.. 400 turbo with 4000 convertor.. 9 inch ford rear with 4.11 gears...Nos fogger kit.. has been 6.05 1/8th on 175hp shot on a small slick.

Edit to add a few more pictures. these are a couple years ago not much different now. I cleaned and detailed under hood, added new valve covers and a quick fuel carb, redone the fuel lines and now has a nos kit. The outside of the car is pretty much unchanged for the moment but will soon be getting new quarter panels and a color change. yes those hideous seats are still in it.

Looks like the same color as mine and possibly the same year. What work did you do to it Adam?

1989 Chevy K1500 4x4, ex-USFS, 4.3 V6 and 3 speed + granny manual (still need to take some better photos of this beast)

1966 Aristocrat Land Commander trailer. We just got this before all this coronavirus stuff went down. Haven't even had a chance to use it yet.

I also have an ugly little old Toyota Corolla just for commuting, but it's not what you'd call photogenic...

Nice MGB GT! A teacher I had in grade school had a British racing green one. It was the car that got me hooked on British sports cars at a young age.

Although my wife is not into model car I am very lucky that she is into (and very skilled in) vintage cars. The 57 Cadillac is her's and she has 100's of hours in the resto.

I took the 68 Coronet convertible to prom (back in the 80's) and a friend in high school had the 71 GTO which he sold me about 15 years ago.

It was in a minor front end collision. the front valance pan under the grill was repaired and painted and the right headlight, trim ring, right marker light and grill were all replaced. I kind find the photos but I also did an all over on a TR3 a few years back. Since I own a classic car every time one comes into work its given to me haha.

Well, I'm a couple of wheels short compared to most of you guys, but it satisfies my Need for Speed.  2016 Yamaha FJ09 with a few updates.  Suspension upgrade and ECU flash plus various cosmetic farkles.

I love the look I get when I roll up to gas up or whatever and peel off my helmet and this gray-bearded bald-headed old fart climbs off that bike...B)

Nice!  I had an '05 Mazdaspeed in Black Mica.  It was a fun little car.  Surprises a lot of people

Gotta love a Miata! I had to sell mine in order to buy the MG. ("Only one project car at a time!") No regrets, but I still kinda miss it... 250,000 miles on a 1.6 and still purred like a kitten when I sold it.

@JJ Deuce, I’ve only see one black MSM over the years. Pretty car! 

@markbt73, the 1.6 cars are a hoot! The engines seem to like to rev more that the 1.8s.
