I have too many cars. I still want more though....but I can't have more, I have to move out soon, and I've decided that one car is the max until I get my bearings, then I can think about getting another if I have the budget for it. Here's the current fleet:

DD: 1997 Chevrolet S10 Blazer

Auto, 4dr, 4x4, 4.3L V6, 190hp - 250ft-lbs, 305,xxxkms

Pros: Bulletproof for 13,000kms since I bought it, good for camping, comfy, lots of room for activities, my girlfriend likes trucks, has yet to be confused by anything I've tried to drive it over, was $600, not rusty

Cons: Neeeeds ball joints and probably tie rod ends or steering arms or other important things like that, bad on gas, doesn't have a gas gauge, blower motor only works when it wants to, damaged bumpers and cracked windshield

Project? Summer DD probably: 1982 BMW 320i(s?)

5 speed, 2dr, RWD, 1.8L I4, 101hp - 103ft-lbs, 214,xxxkms

Pros: Rare (around here) relatively clean, relatively low miles, fun to drive, light, runs well, good on gas, refreshed head 2 years ago, I love BMWs, Recaros, probably an "is" for increased coolness and rarity

Cons: Needs rear subframe mounts, needs a general tuneup, is running kind of hot, passenger floor is all full of water now but not rusty, so it must be a recently developed leak, rust spots on trunk, bubbling on right rear fender, rust in front of left rocker at the jacking point, was $2000

Thing I bought because my friend is moving to Italy: 2002 Mazda Protege5

5 speed, 4dr, FWD, 2.0L I4, 130hp - 135ft-lbs, 216,xxxkms

Pros: Newish, really good on gas, fantastically maintained, has been reliable in the yearish that my friend has had it, came with winter tires, clean interior, absolutely everything works, first thing I've ever bought that performs like a normal car and has all of its functions, was $500

Cons: FWD, ugly ass rims for the summer tires, I don't like the clutch, it feels flimsy compared to the E21 and the S10, rust and and bodywork galore

TL;DR, I need to have probably one car and don't know which one to choose because I should be practical but I don't want to be
