I have an interesting car history, mostly based on what'* affordable and available at the time. I started with a 1988 red Ford Thunderbird. It was a blast. Most of the electronics no longer worked, but that V8 provided plenty of power for the little coupe. I then upgraded to a 92 Pontiac Bonneville, it was reliable. but several years ago it appeared to be at the end of it'* life. So I lent it to my parents and it was back to Ford with a 2000 Taurus. I should have known better. Within a year the Ford blew a head gasket. And being in college at the time, I decided to go back to Bonny. It has treated me well for several more years.
