Vehicles I've Owned

In roughly chronological order (oldest to most recent), these are the vehicles I’ve owned and some facts about them

  1. 2005 Nissan Sentra
    • Base model “bar of soap with wheels”
    • Inherited from a family member
    • Crashed into 3 times before I got it!
  2. 1991 Honda Nighthawk 250
    • My first motorcycle
    • Woefully underpowered: 13 kW (17 hp) at the engine!
Honda motorcycle

Not too shabby for a 29 year old bike!

  1. 2005 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883

    • Upgrade from the Honda that’s more highway-capable
    • Suprisingly uncomfortable in its stock configuration (Harley’s “aesthetic” air cleaner gave me bruises 🤔)
    • Absurdly loud with straight pipes
  2. 2001 Mercedes CLK 320 Convertible

    • Purchased to replace the Harley when I quit riding
    • Very easy, but expensive, to work on
    • Was stolen in Florida in 2003, then recovered and sold as a wedding gift in Pennsylvania, then sat in a garage its whole life before being bought and moved back to Florida
Mercedes CLK and SLK
  1. 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4
    • Replaced the CLK due to expensive suspension issues (needed several struts and control arms)
    • Has a bumper-to-bumper warranty until 2029!
    • Despite only having 58 kW (78 hp), it’s not bad to drive due to its amazing transmission, light weight, and electric steering
