I can't get a Drivers License due to medical reasons.

So where's the "I don't have a car you insensitive clod" option ?

Hey! Me too. Is yours untrustworthy and unreliable too? (3dr "Tahitian green" as Honda likes to call the putrid thing).

Pretty much. It's got a small radiator crack, and had a cracked dristibutor cap (so the car would stall whenever I went over a big puddle), the clearcoat is all chipped off, the rearview mirror is busted, one of the rear doors won't open (from inside or out), a few years ago I had to have the evaporator replaced... But for an 11 year old car with 150K miles I suppose it runs like a charm. :)

Hehe... well, lets see. Around the time the warranty was going to expire, my oil pan gasket leaked. Consequently, I'm not sure how long I drove without oil (there was none in it, or the filter when I had it changed). Within another couple of years, it died (aka, stalled and wouldn't start). Something to do with the distributor rotor. The answer from Honda: "It can go anytime after 80K miles and there's no way to know when". Nothing mentioned in the maintenance section of the manual.

a 2002 Toyota Tundra

A very nice truck, I might add. Best out of all the trucks I've owned.

After the Tundra's paid off... here comes the 'vette :)

Since I'm at college, there isn't much room (or money) for me to park my car. So, it's sitting at home waiting until my brother turns 16.

It, btw, is a 1998 Pontiac Sunfire Coupe. Black, sunroof, spoiler, and a lot of crap in the backseat that was left there by others in my family. I swear, my mom and sister don't know how to keep a clean car.

Similar to me: same E-28 chassis, I think, but I've got the 1988 528e - no diesel, engine underclocked for fuel efficiency. Last of the boxy BMWs.

1996 Nissan Maxima SE (Natasha) or a 1971 VW Super Beatle (Vladimier).

They drive a bit differently. :P

A classic: Toyota Estima, built in 1992 or thereabouts. I paid the equivalent of 2000 USD for that two years ago, the very first time I spent that much money on a car. :) Enough room to swing a few cats, but not much fun anymore since the air conditioning broke down last summer. Replacing it would be far too expensive, it'll have to go before the temperatures rise above 30 degrees again...
