    I will make it quick.
    In order:
    73 Duster 225
    74 Duster 318
    69 Dart 225
    68 Dart 273
    64 Dart 225
    87 El Camino 6cyl.
    70 Torino 460
    64.5 Mustang 6cyl.
    66 Impala 350/3spd.
    71 Coupe deVille 472
    72 Coupe deVille 472
    71 Coupe deVille 472 parts car.
    77 El Dorado 427
    I kept the 72 Coupe deVille.
    I fixed up and sold most of them, Crashed 2. Never got stranded. A few flats, overheats, dead batteries, (at home), ran out of gas a few times. But I took good care of them and they took good care of me. Registration was never more than $100/yr. Insurance was never more than $30/mo.
    I LOVE old cars. All had good paint and interiors. And clean, well maintained motors.
    All I have now is the 72 Coupe deVille 472.
    All cars mentioned were 2 door. No convertables, unfortunately.

    First (not mine, and I did some pin striping on mine) was a 1966 Pontiac GTO. My parents bought it for me at the end of my sophomore year in college (1975).

    My favorite was a 1996 BMW 321i that I bought from my brother. Sorry, but I can't find any pics of it right now.

    My current is a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited.

    Oh man a lot of nice cars here. I don’t have a pic but my parents gave me their old 1989 Jeep Cherokee as my first car. I couldn’t afford gas at the time to drive it.

    In the last 10 years I’ve had probably over 40 different vehicles. Being a mechanic I could buy them cheap, fix and flip. From Lada Niva, Land rovers to civics. A lot of imports really, no domestic vehicles.

    My favourite 2 were my 1993 Rx7 and a 1990 Nissan skyline GTR. Both were bought with no engine. I kept those for a few years. Years of constant repairs on cool but older vehicles I got tired and just bought new. Moved onto a 2018 Subaru wrx STI 2A867A87-BD78-4570-87B0-9A7E2276B74D.jpeg 96FE3AA1-DDBA-4702-9BE1-28F3D3722D66.jpeg 1D6E9517-FEA2-48DC-882B-ADFA111FA68E.jpeg BD62B798-1FDE-42D1-BF55-EF1576E7B983.jpeg 6F93FF2C-7754-4C8F-8C7F-1D4F3C0C3A59.jpeg C86C730C-67DE-42E5-A084-2277830E1967.jpeg 3A270FDD-F9CA-4E71-A731-EA045A3DDCE3.jpeg C99719DD-7EB6-4817-A8B1-E51663DE6819.jpeg

    Ah, I misunderstood....it’s your favorite car you actually owned...I never got the Shelby :(...and since the only other car I owned was a 91 Honda Civic hatchback...I guess my favorite was the accord...at least I went out on a high note..sort of

    Those Miatas are a blast, right? My friends gave me so much crap for driving a 'girly-car' but I loved it :cool:

    Thanks. Natural gas powered 400hp with a 6 speed Allison. Pulls a 53ft modified walking floor trailer from a paper mill to the warehouse 5 miles away all day. Not the greatest power-wise, but it does ok I guess. Rides pretty good, and I think there's more room in it than a rental Volvo that we have. For me anyways, I'm 6'2 and 240. We have our own CNG pumps on site.
