List the Cars and Bikes You've Owned Over the Years

Wondering how many of you are as (or more) prolific than me when it comes to our motor vehicle hobby/passion! I'll start, from first to last, and this doesn't count things that fly or float:

1974 VW Super Beetle (one of my favorite cars of all time)
1979 Mazda RX-7
1974 Kawasaki H2 "Widowmaker"
1978 Chevrolet Corvette
1972 Chevrolet Corvette LT-1
1969 Pontiac Catalina
1977 Pontiac Grand Prix
1984 Mazda 626
1974 VW Super Beetle "Sun Bug"
1982 Yamaha Seca 750
1982 Kawasaki GPZ1100
1980 Honda CBX
1974 Jeep CJ-5
1977 Jeep Cherokee
1985 Isuzu Trooper
1985 Honda Civic Hatchback
1985 Olds Delta 88 Coupe (don't ask me why)
1994 Ford Taurus (company car)
1994 Honda Accord
1996 Honda Civic Coupe
1996 Honda Odyssey
2007 Honda Pilot
2008 Honda Pilot
2008 Honda Pilot (yes, 3 of them, long story)
1978 Porsche 911SC

1985 Porsche Carrera Targa
1992 Ducati 851SP
2008 Harley Davidson Road King
2013 Volkswagen Jetta
1998 Porsche Boxster

Some of these vehicles were owned at the same time as others, but it really makes me look back and wonder about my sanity over the years!

69 Road Runner
73 VW Beetle
77 Toyota Celica
79 Omni 024
77 Corrola
81 Charger 2.2
87 Caravan
87 944 turbo
96 Town & Country
01 Lexus ES 300
88 944 turbo S
91 CRX Si
02 Boxster S
03 Town & Country
08 Boxster S

I still have the last 5 on the list except the CRX. Wish I kept it.
everytime I'm behind the wheel of an air cooled 911 it reminded me too much of my 73 VW. From the smell to the road feel. Probably why I never bought one.
