My American cars in order of ownership;
'79 Olds Delta 88 diesel, great fuel mileage between engine rebuilds, I sold it after the 3rd rebuild.
'78 Olds 98 Regency,powered by a 455 from a '70 Toronado, sold to someone with a V12 Jaguar when I beat him in a drag race.
'79 Dodge D200 crewcab, slant six powered, slow but incredibly tough, One of my all time favourites.
'78 Chevy Monza, L4 iron duke. POS but I was given it.
'82 Lincoln mk6. 302 TBI A wonderful car, it had to go when rust got a hold.
'85 Chevy Dayvan, Doesn't really count because I sold it for £1200 profit two days after I bought it.
'79 Buick Century wagon, 231 V6, A great tow car, in 5 years the only problems were the clock burning out (frightening at 70 mph on a busy freeway) and a leaking fuel tank, I sold it only because I had to make room on my driveway.
'82 Olds Cutlass wagon, 307/350c. I bought it for spares for the Century but kept it as it was in better shape, I sold it to a friend who turned it into a delivery van!.
'83 Buick Riviera 307. Bought it from a friend after an underhood fire, I put a 350 engine in but never got it running right, I loved the car but the fire had peeled of lots of unseen paint and it rusted while I watched. I sold it to someone who wanted the engine.
'87 Olds Delta 88 Royale Brougham 231 V6. My current vehicle, with the possible exception of the Lincoln the most comfortable car I've owned & more importantly my girlfriend loves it!.
