I can still smell the interior if I think back hard enough, it was that classic mopar vinyl interior.

I haven't thought of that thing in years, thank you

1961 Ford 1 ton dually

It had a flat or stake bed and a huge cattle guard on it. My dad and I rebuilt the 390 in it and I thought that it was indestructable. Actually it was pretty damn indestructable.

1988 AE92 Maroon red Corolla Sedan. DOHC carb engine. Loved it to death, but I butchered it up in an attempt to make it something it wasn't....autocrosser.

72 Plymouth Duster w/ slant 6 auto.

It started with a push button located in the ashtray, where the lighter used to be. I was in highschool at the time, and sometimes after school the car would be in a different spot than where I had parked it in the morning! I guess a few people knew the secret of my car.

1988 Chevy Beretta with a bright red new paint job circa 1995.

1967 Mustang with a 289 and a 3 speed.

Funny, when my dad bought it for me he ended up driving it more than I did while I drove around in his 1979 Mustange Hatchback with 4 cylinder and automatic transmission.

Almost every morning I'd wake up for school, look out the window to see my car was gone and his was in the driveway. I usually only got to drive it weekends.

68 Plymouth Fury 2 door with 318. That car got 22 to 24 mpg and was wide enough that I could sleep on the front seat with my legs dangling over the edge.

Next was a 65 Chevy pickup, followed by 75 LTD (ripped the front end out on a manhole in front of a gunshop in Hampton, Va.), then a 67 FrankenVolvo, then the biggest POS of all, a new 83 Mustang 3 door I special ordered with a 3.8l V-6.

Soon after buying it I rebuilt the motor and my best friend & I spent our high school graduation summer touring the west half of the US.

My first vehicle was a 1955 Harley Davidson Chopper.

My first car was a 1963 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible. That was a piece of crap but got me around.

My buddies called it the "deathmobile".

It was Dad's old car, and it was free. Which made it good enough.

'72 Chevy Vega hatchback. Coca~Cola red with black interior, 4spd. She'd scoot around town OK but was kinda worthless on the highway. ~85mph top speed
I'd buy another if I found one that wasn't a rustbucket, though I'd most likely upgrade the engine to a 2.5L Iron Duke Pontiac or a 231ci Buick v6. The Vega 2300 aluminum sleeveless block/iron OHC engine is neat idea from a mechanical perspective but the execution left a bit to be desired.

250 cu. in. 6 cyl. with 2 - speed Power Glide.

Tough as a tank!

Could kill the battery with the Pioneer tape deck then roll start it (dual pump power glide), had to get to around 30 mph and shift into drive.

Had to also remember to have key on when doing so.
