1976 mustang

1998 ummmm escort (boooo)

Numerous Ford Mini Vans

Currently a 2003 Ford Windstar MiniVan. Practical for hauling the kid and friends around. And the dog, and anything else a single mom can haul around with minimal effort. Plus the front wheel drive is great for winter blizzards.

Next mode of transportation I dream of

Cars cars cars. Love or hate em. I've had several through the years. And I've built one and tinkered with others. :driving:

My first was a 1985 Cutlass Supreme Broughm. 5.0 litre HO 307 olds. That car would fly top end, but was a dog out of the hole, but I did not know much about cars back then and never corected the problem.

1987 Chevette. Definetly not the cool car, but the thing just would not die.

1991 Dodge Spirit, V6. Sweet little machine, but had a lemon trans.

1995 Chrysler Lebaron GTC convertable, great cruisin car. Ex wife got it. :-5

1971 Chevelle SS 400 small block, 350 crank and rods, corvette heads and Z28 valve train, ofenhuaser high rise intake, Holly 750 single, 400 turbo trans, shift kit, 2800 stall, headers, glass packs, 338 12 bolt posi.ooooohhhhh I miss her. She was a screamer. I was kickin butt on the new vettes. :sneaky:

1985 C-10 pick up, 350 4 bolt main, edelbrock everything, sweet motor, body died, may she rest in peace.

1995 Cougar XR7 4.6 V8, so far my favorite car. still purrs like a kitten.

i learned to drive in my parent's 1961 VW bus, and 1969 VW bug. That bus is still parked out at my brother's mountain redoubt, it's been in the family 44 years!



first car i bought was a 1970-something honda 600. amazing, weird little car. had a two cylinder motorcycle engine in it! i rebuilt the motor and transmission myself at one point.



after that, 'inherited' the VW bus again for quite a few years, through college. then in my twenties i bought a VM Karmann Ghia. nice little car. the one i bought was a junker of a car though, half the body was 'bondo'. but it was a convertible, i was young, and it was much fun.



after that, it was my beloved 1986 subaru 4-wheel drive wagon. incredibly reliable, fun to drive, enormous cargo capacity, halfway decent mileage. i miss it to this day.



in 2001, i bought my first genuinely new car - a 2002 subaru WRX. the most horsepower i'd ever had at my right foot before was the subaru wagon, with all of 75 horsepower. The WRX - turbocharged - has 227 horsepower, but even more importantly, only 13lbs of weight per horsepower. this thing absolutely flies. blistering acceleration. i've yet to top out in speed either, but that's due to both always running out of open road before reaching top speed, and the fact that if i ever get caught going at the max speed, i'll spend time in the hoosegow and lose my license! highest i've ever gotten is 124mph. it has a 140mph top speed.



i've never had so much fun driving in my life. :driving: the pathetic part is that i'm 45 years old. midlife crisis indeed. :yh_loser

1996 Chevy S-10 4WD P/U Long Bed, Short Cab, White/Blu int. Big, tubular steel chrome bull bars on the front, black sprayed-on bedliner. Lemon law byback. Got it $1000 less than low blue book with 3,000 miles on it and immaculate. Have only had to spend $500 on repairs. Today 130K miles and still runs great.

And I drive my wife's car, 2001 Chevy Blazer White/Tan leather interior, sunroof

My cutest car ever was a 1970 Citroen Mehari. Two cyl, 600 cc, 40mpg. Totally open jeep style mini with ABS plastic body, faded red. I could lift the rear wheels off the ground without a jack. Great desert rat car. Someone set it on fire and that was that.

Ford Ka

And i love it, ideal for those of us who have recently passed our driving test. (My new years resolution last year - and i did it by May). Sooooo easy to drive, small - easy to park and quick off the mark.....tho not a racing machine by anyones standards. Next time i go car shopping, it will be something with a lot more oomph! but it does the job for now.

First vehicle was a 56 chevy PU then a 56 2 door nomad wagon (wish I had either today).

Then a 63 GMC panel wagon with a V6, 4 speed posa-traction crawler.

A 69 Datsun PU, 52 chevy PU with 4x4 and 6" lift I added (Both were work trucks)

Then I got married............

Cars went downhill from there

First car was a 72 Datsun B-210 puke green, then a 72 Buick Electra 225 Limited Edition........... Gas hog but what a ride at 100 mph

My best car ever was next a 1976 Olds Cutlass Supreme Broham...All around car.

Then a 86 Olds Toranado, another great car, was not like the original Toranados (small)

Then worst car ever, a 94 Ford Taurus..........Last car while married was a 2001 Nissan Sentra.............

Then divorced and I got my dream truck now........a 2000 F-350 Crew Cab Super Duty Lariat 4x4 Diesel............

That was fun..........

My truck

what year StingRay.

I've just recently aquired my first car. It's a 1990 H reg Nissan Sunny 1.4LS in a very fetching (ie crap) grey.

I have previously driven a Ford Fiesta (instructors), L reg Citroen ZX and a V reg Mazda 323 (both belong to parents).

I've only bothered with third party insurance because the excess was £500 and I only bought it for £90.

It drives nicely between 45 and 65 mph so it cruises well. The suspension is a bit bouncy.

It needs a fair amount of work done on it though, mainly bodywork I think as it has a few rust spots that need seeing to before winter sets in.

My car is a 97 Ford Escort. It has well over 100,000 miles on it, blind spots that are prohibitive because I'm short, and I have no hubcaps. It's mint green!

I love the Jettas...small but great leg room, cushy but not too luxury car-ish. I was thinking of buying one when I set fire to the Escort for insurance money. (Although one good thing about the escort is being able to write "escort service" on the memo line of my checks to the repairman!)
