Let'* see.
Current ride: none, picking up the Park Ave from the dealer tomorrow.
Last ride was the 95 SSEi.
Before that, I had the 90 Taurus that my Great Aunt Virginia gave me when her vight-vision went. Free, but the damned thing went through three trannies in a year.
Before that I rode a city bus, and before that I drove an 89 F*rd Probe LX. It'* gonna sound like BS, but that thing had some real nuts.
And before that I mainly drove my Dad'* 87 F-250. Thing was a bear, 300ci straight-six, 4spd manual with a granny gear, extra leaves on the back springs, plow-truck suspension up front. Engine had no HP, but more torque than any of F*rd'* truck-block V8s at the time.

Pics of Bonnie and the Parkie, click in my sig.

My first car was a 1979 Pontiac Firebird Formula. 6.6L 403cu in Olds engine. Had headers, intake manifold, carb, exhaust. Such an awesome car, good fun in high school...bought it for $4500 with 145000 kms...sold it 4 years later at 165000 kms for $5500. Went a year and a half relying on public transit, then bought my Bonneville (pics are being developed)

4A series Toyota Drivetrain. Carb'd (i'm 90% sure) Manual Transmission, Windows, Locks.

However, It has an Oversized GM fit Pioneer Head Unit, Infinity Front speakers, Fosgate Rears, JBL Amp, Polk Audio Sub in a bandpass box. However, i've set it up with the parametric EQ so it bests my dual 10" JL in a sealed enclosure at higher volumes.



See my post in the lounge, cuz she'* back in action.

I was rotating between a 94 S10 Ext Cab and a 2000 Blazer LT fully loaded. Needless to say I like the bonne better

I had both of these before the Bonneville. The SHO (236K) was starting to go down hill fast so I got rid of that, which was mainly my winter beater(although I am not a Ford person, the SHO is an exception, alot of fun to drive). The 95 Formula was then my main car and I didn't want to have to drive it in the winter, or have to get a beater for the winter . It ran the 1/4 in the low 14s bone stock. It wasn't stock when I traded it for the SSEi , but I couldn't justify driving it in the snow. neither my fiancee or I wanted to get rid of it, but the SSEi is the best of both worlds for now, comfort & speed.
