6. 1991 Ford Aerostar (bad divorce)
7. 1979 Chevy 3/4 ton 2wd (hit parked car)
8. 1985 Plymouth Reliant Stationwagon (kid hauler after divorce)
9. 1979 Chevy 3/4 ton 2wd (got heart of other truck / 350 c.i. love)
10. 1991 Plymouth Grand Voyager ( new kid hauler)

14. 1989 Pontiac Bonneville (moved to Oregon / like the body style)
15. 1994 Dodge Caravan ( kid hauler / sold)
16. 1995 Pontiac Bonneville ( wife’* car)

My wife also had a 1997 Hyundai Accent when we got married ( kid trashed it)


My favorite was my trucks. Wrecked the first one into a parked car. Drove for 2 years after using tree to pull the fender off the wheel. Found next truck with bad motor. Rebuilt and swapped the 350. Invested 1400 for 2 trucks did a basic rebuild and drove both trucks for a total of 10 years. When I moved to Oregon I sold it for $500.

The Donor truck during the 2 years after the wreck.



Favorite car the 89 Bonneville.

1981 Mercury Zephyr
1984 Thunderbird
1990 Cougar
1996 Cutlass Supreme

My current Bonneville is my favorite so far, but the Cougar is a very close second. That car had decent power (3.8L also if I recall) and had RWD. It was also a very comfortable riding car with nice plush seats.

My least favorite was probably the Zephyr just because it was like a grandma car. But the Thunderbird did blow three head gaskets in the 1 1/2 years I owened it.

My list is on my 2nd page of Cardomain site. Please check it out when the mood strikes.

The worse by far I owned was a 1980 Lada Niva. It was terrible, and featured a Crank Start (yup, like an old tractor) for those times it just wouldn't go on it'* own.
I used the Crank a few times!

My Volkswagen Scirocco was another terrible one. The electrical system was a nightmare.

My favourites? My 1985 Jeep Cherokee, 1991 Acura Integra, and by far the most, my current 1993 SSEi !!

Cheers,
Adam

Both Bonnes are great, the original DrugRunner was the best (problem-free) car I've had.
The Cutlass was fun to drive

1988 chevy cavalier...
it was only $200, and the body was about 5 different colors, but that engine and trans (stick shift = FUN!) would run forever. i beat the hell out of that car, and it still ran like a dream. after a year and a half, i sold it for my 96 SE, and i've had that since aug. of '06
