      I've owned multiple Mazdas and Hondas but no other brand has occupied space in my driveway more than Toyota:

      1. FJ55 LC
      2. FJ62 LC
      3. FZJ80 LC
      4. '82ish Corolla Wagon
      5. '85 4Runner
      6. '06 4Runner V8
      7. (another) '85 4Runner
      8. '05 4Runner V6
      9. '10 Prius

      Definitely VW. They did the job back then. But now, I don't see myself owning multiple cars from the same brand.

      What car BRAND have you owned the most of?

      If by brand alone, VW. If by parent company, then VAG and Chrysler Corporation are tied (Plymouth and Jeep)

      Variety is good.

      I personally have owned one Mazda and one Mercedes. If I count what my family has owned in the time that I've been alive, it would be:

      1 Nissan
      1 Subaru
      1 Volvo
      1 Plymouth
      1 Toyota
      1 BMW
      1 Chevroley

      I guess I would say 7 Porsche. 3x 914, 1x 914-6, and 3 inherited when my father passed away - 930 and a 928S (sold within a few months), and a 944 Turbo that I hung on to for several years but didn't drive much.
      5 VWs (2 Scirocco, 1 Rabbit, 2 Touareg).
      4 Chevrolet (Camaro, K1500, 1st gen Colorado, 2nd gen Colorado).
      3 BMW (2 E91, 1 Z4MC)
      3 Dodge (Shelby Charger, Caravan, Dakota)

      Volkswagen.

      I don't expect my next car to be a VW though - not because of any issues, I've just kind of had my fill of turbo front wheel drive cars for a while. Each one has been incrementally better than the last, but it's getting boring.

      How do you view spouses' and/or parts cars?

      My wife bought the Mazda before we married (but we were together) so now that we are married, are all her Mazda are now belong to us?

      Anyway, I won't count SO's or parts cars for now. The official tally is a 3-way tie between BMW, Mazda, and Jeep (surprising for TCL, I know)

      BMW - 535i (E28), E36 M3 [+1 for E28 535is parts car]
      Mazda - 3, NA Miata [+1 for wife's 3]
      Jeep - YJ Wrangler, XJ Cherokee

      VW can be thrown in there too, even though the Mk2 is not yet titled in my name, and there's another parts car in there. It would take the lead if you include ALL VAG cars:

      VW - Mk6 Sportwagen, [Mk2 GTI], [Mk3 Jetta GLX donor car]
      Audi - B5 A4

      Honorable mentions:
      GM - '80 Sierra pickup truck
      Subaru - '02 WRX
      Nissan - Frontier

      I guess I subscribe to the 'variety is the spice of life' crowd.

      Mazda...
      Protege
      Miata X 2
      3
      CX-9

      Many of my family members have driven my cars over the years, and ended up switching to Mazdas...insert comment about viral advertising or such.

      I could add 7 more Mazdas that were a result of a family member liking my car, and buying a Mazda as their next.

      I've owned over 30 custom aircooled VWs, so that one takes the prize for my household.
