Not really my cars, my Dads:

Subaru in '81 (don't know which one)
Mazda 929
Mazda 929 GLX
Toyota Corolla
Mazda 626
Premier Padmini
'94 Maruti 800(somehow everyone has ended up owning one sometime or the other )-sold
'99 Indica DLE-sold(4 gears)
'96 Maruti Esteem VLX-sold
'04 Indica DLS - still there!
'03 Indica DLE - sold - this car was bought second hand, 4 gears and was atleast as fast as my friends qualis if not outdrag it!
'99 Enfield Bullet Machismo 350

Was sort of smaller back then so don't know which years the cars prior to the Padmini belong too. But they were owned in the period '81 to '91.

Another thing I would highlight, is how dumb it was on Tatas part to sell only the DLX with 5gears and the rest with 4 gears in '99!!!

Now my Dad's planning an upgrade and the battle is basically between the City Vtec and the Magnum. Of course, we LOVE the Cedia but fathers afraid we'll get stuck with a lemon when he wants to sell it!!! Dam!

Default Early Ford Bronco

I briefly owned a 1975 Ford Bronco in perfect shape. It had four wheel drive, a 5.0 litre v-8 motor and was better looking than Aishwarya Rai. Okay, I lied a little about that last part.
