1999 Toyota Camry (gave to my parents when I moved to NYC)


2006 Nissan Altima (totaled, girl hit my parked car)


2014 Audi Q5 (current)

The pictures aren't of the actual vehicle, but they are of the exact model and color of the ones I owned.

94 Corolla is my first car. Officially since the 2000 Malibu I drove in high school wasn't in my name.

1) 2004 Suzuki Aerio - put about $10k worth of damage on it during 3 separate accidents, then totaled it officially in 2009 (only time a car I've owned has caught on fire)

2) 1998 Mercury Sable - totaled in 2010 when a 16y/o T-boned the driver's side at 45mph while I was waiting at a stop sign

3) 1995 Volvo 960 - totaled in 2011, hit while parked on the street

4) 2001 Volvo s40 - tranny fail in 2013

5) 1998 Toyota 4runner - current (awesome) car

...I'm surprised that I'm still intact, quite frankly

Late 90s Camrys were pretty sweet. I think on the V6 version of the late 90s Camry you had to remove the intake manifold to replace the spark plugs.

What's with everybody and totaled cars? Especially while parked?

My car was officially totaled in December 2014. Kid merged into my car while going around a construction area. So my car has a restored salvage title.

My first car was totaled while parked on the side of the freeway. I stopped due to another accident and someone hit the van and kept driving. The good thing is the police where already there for the first accident so they went after the guy.

Well the first accident I had involved someone driving over the curb into my driveway to smash into the side of my car, which I guess might've been a sign to stay far away from cars

Just need to stay away from other people driving cars...
