My first car was a 1968 Chevrolet Bel-air with a 307 and a 2 speed powerglide tranny. I drove it until the frame broke. I loved that car but the NY winters killed it. but it was sweet cruising next to some loser in a 84 honda at 55, downshift to 1st and smoke em...

First: 1998 Chevrolet Suburban, 1500 w/ electronic 4wd, rebuilt 3.73:1 rear axel with a locking differential, custom CAI. (Didn't grab pics before we sold it, though.. Parents orig. bought it to tow a 25' Camper, and to let me drive to/from work, and out and about. I asked if I could call it mine if I paid half of insurance, gas (since I was only one driving it..really they used it twice.) and they covered car payments, so they said 'yes, it'* "yours"' ..' truck was barely ever dirty. Saw some good mud runs two-three times, then it was meticulously detailed by me after.. Here'* the second day I had it.



After putting $6K into parts/repairs/etc, (which I paid half of everything done, but I took full responsibility of paying off the rear axel which I grenaded .. pulled a holeshot then hit a dry spot.. didn't work to well, heard tire spinning, then gear grinding, knew i messed something.. we sold it in march about a week after I got the bonne'

In between, feb. 5th, I found a Ford Escort, '95, old lady owned it since new.. garaged whole life of car, but still had sun fade on bumpers.. was a fun car, had for two days. installed new plugs/wires, then I took it to a parking lot where a hardware store is by me to pick up some screws for my dash on it, since I had to fix it.. and lost two screws, then I wanted to see what kinda getup and go it got, didn't work too well. geo prizm pulled out in front of me.





This is the car after a good wash, wax job, plugs, and wires two days later..

*$130 worth of stuff.. plugs/wires alone were $85.*




You can still see the fresh waxjob on that..

Which brings me to the grand finale.. alot of tears have been involved with her so far, but you know what? everything'* fixed right now with it .. (except a few things, tires, struts..) but for the most part, she runs flawlessly, and i'm glad i came across it and decided on this car.. /drumroll


When she arrived.. baby pics. LOL




Three cars, 11 months.

Let'* see if I can get this straight. I'm 15, and I've had 5 cars. Here'* the story.

On August 2nd 1994(the day my bro was born) my dad bought a 1988 Eagle Premier, fully loaded, burgundy/burgundy, 3.0L. This car croaked out in 1996, at which time my dad gave it to me.
Then, he bought a 1982 Ford LTD Crown Victoria, 302PI, lt blue+dk blue vinyl top and interior. The car was not running, we were gonna work on it together.
Then, he gave me a 1981 Chevrolet C10 P/U, metallic brown/saddle interior, at that time had an inline 6 4.0L (now has 5.0L 305).
After I got the Chevy, my dad decided to take it upon hisself to GIVE my Eagle and the LTD to the junkyard.
In 2002 I bought my 1966 Chevrolet C10, burgundy/fawn, built 350 w/3spd.
In November 2005 I bought the Bonneville. (see sig)
A couple weeks ago, I sold the 1966 Chevrolet less the motor, glass, guages, original AM radio, and a few odds and ends.

So incase you couldn't keep up, I had a:
1988 Eagle Premier LS
1982 Ford LTD PI
1981 Chevrolet C10
1966 Chevrolet C10
1993 Pontiac Bonneville SLE

My first car was a 1990 Grand Prix STE ASC/McLaren 3.1L Intercooled Turbo, 1 of 1000. I still have it and due to what I have invested into it, I'll probably never sell it, at least not anytime soon.
