Husband'* blue 1999 Silverado z71 ext cab...2" lift, 33'*, rims, etc... but I just like it for the heated seats. My alternate winter ride is a Polaris SKS 700 136", and in the summer, '68 Camaro.

Since I'm bored at lunch, I'll list all of the cars I've had:

My first in high school-1981 Mercury Zephyr-See picture, but silver. It had some rust behind the moulding on the doors so I took them off and painted the bottom half a dark blue. Pretty good car, V6. Owned it for two years.


Next up was a 1984 Ford Thunderbird like below. Nice car, but it was a low mileage car and ten years old and blew three head gaskets in the 1.5 years I owned it.

My next car was just like this one, a 1990 Mercury Cougar. Another good car, but sadly the last rear wheel drive daily car I would own. Sold after almost three years.

Then I got married, and my wife owned a white 1994 Pontiac Sunbird that I helped her pick out. It was a great car, almost no problems at all. It was cool because it was actually a fairly rare car. The SE was uncommon, and I don't think we ever saw another white one with a sunroof.

Next in 1998 was my first long term car that I still own, but will be selling shortly, a 1996 Olds Cutlass. Good car, not much guts with the 3.1L.


Then in anticipation of starting a family we sold the Sunbird in '02 and bought a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer. We have tried for a couple months to sell it and get a minivan, but haven't tried too hard since the wife doesn't want to be a "minivan mom".


Three years ago my wife agreed to let me buy a toy, so after a year of looking we took home a nice red 1968 Olds Cutlass.


Finally I just bought the 2003 SLE in August

Barney, my daily driver. Before you knock it, this car has 170,000 miles on the original engine and tranny. Still runs and shifts like a champ, and has required less than $200 in work in the year we've had him. Still gets ~ 30mpg, too.

Xander, MY 1990 Chevy K1500 Silverado. Supposed to be my winter driver, but is currently sitting in the driveway while we try to locate a driveshaft for it.

Blue, my husband'* 1983 Chevy Silverado. Most surefooted vehicle I've ever driven, hands down. It sits so high because of the custom leaf springs he'* put under it. The plow doesn't make it sink in the front at ALL.

My husband also owns a 1991 Chevy c1500 Cheyenne. 200,000 miles on the truck, 12,000 on a Chevy 350 crate motor. Blown transmission, not a single good body piece on the entire truck. More than 5 major accidents to date.

Soon to come (maybe): 2002 Dodge Neon.
