An Automotive Education

I've always said that my love of European cars stems almost entirely from my upbringing. Out of curiosity, I recently emailed my dad, Normailty, and asked him to hook me up with list of all the cars my family drove—both foreign and domestic—from the time I was born until I went to college. It's actually pretty interesting. And just to be clear, even though the first one was a '73 Beetle—I wasn't born until '76.
1973 Volkswagen Beetle (Red): 1973 Volkswagen Bus (Two-tone Tan/White):

1980 Dodge Omni (Copper)
1973 BMW Bavaria (Red):
1973 Ford Pinto Wagon (Ketchup Red) Awesome!
1974 BMW 2002 tii (White):
JessInTheCity and Kyality getting dirrty.
1974 Renault LeCar 3-door Hatch (Orange): 1974 BMW Bavaria (Tan)
1980 Toyota Corolla SR5 Liftback (Yellow)
1975 Renault LeCar 5-door Hatch (Navy Blue)

1980 Saab 99 2-door (Navy Blue): 1988 Dodge Caravan (Charcoal Grey)
976 BMW 2002 (Cherry Red):
This is a pic of the actual car guest starring my little bro Snizzle.
1988 Chevrolet Nova (Silver)
1973 BMW 2002 (Blue)

1990 Volvo 240 DL (Black):
1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee (Metallic Blue)
1988 BMW M5 (Black):
So figure that we had least two cars at any given time and you can see that I've always been exposed to a healthy dose of Euro-autos. Fun little list. Now you know where my sickness comes from. Thanks Pa.
