How many cars, that you have owned, have you worked on before your Cobalt? ANd what kind were they? The Cobalt is the third car that I have worked on. I worked on a 99 Cavalier and a 01 Cougar before this.

1. 94 Ford Tempo--don't know what you mean by work but i bent the frame and got rid of it, got it for x-mas I really wasn't into cars at the time so i didn't care how it looked.
2. 89 Chevrolet Beretta-this is the biggest piece of shit every created. I NEEDED a car and so we went to some wierd repo auction and for $500 i took home a car that we spent $1000 just to get it running and it STILL sucked, it was red and looked like someone spray painted it all the time I was fixing the belt. It literally fell off in a puddle of water!
3. 93 Dodge Dakota-i traded the beretta in for $300! sad lol and got this piece of crap everytime you backed up you heard a creaking noise and no one could figure out the problem!
4. 95 Saturn SL-ahh not a bad car...i had a system in there...it got stolen...got rid of it for..
5. 00 Chevrolet Camaro-*sniffs* i miss this one!!!! she was my baby nuff said
6. 03 Chevrolet Cavalier-*coughs* piece of crap like all cavaliers..o.k. not all some. after 3 years with the warranty almost up she took a crap.

I missed the that I've owned part so my vote in the poll is a little skewed now. Sorry.

Let's see cars that I've owned and worked on.
1992 Cutless Supreme, just did the basics, oil changes etc
1995 Dodge Stratus, oils changes, brakes (4 freaking times), head gasket twice, EGR twice
1979 Toyota Corolla, I inherited it and it was my aunts first car so I got it running and gave it to her. She now drives back and forth to work sometimes in it.
2001 Camaro (I'm only part owner, it's a team car). uh where do I start? lol The entire car has been torn apart and redone. It's strictly a race car now, although it sees the streets when it's needed. :)
2006 Cobalt.

Yea, I had to put the "that you owned" part cause otherwise mine would be well over hundred since I worked in a custom stereo shop for a couple years, lol.

Well the only work I would do on the cars I used to own was your typical stuff, Oil Change, Tune ups, replaced the occasional distributor, battery, starter, headlights, blinkers, taillights etc.,,etc...
