My first car, a 1996 Mustang GT. Too lazy to type all the motor/tranny work done to it. But that car was perfect, and it ran high 12'*.

You all know the story really, but since you can never had too many pictures...

For the pre-driving age (okay, so this isn't *the* bike I rode three years ago, but it'* my new one and I'll take any opportunity to show it off)...

Then the Bonneville (which is why you're all stuck with me)...


And now, the GA...

I had a 1987 Lancer ES I turned into a Shelby Clone for my first car -this isn't it but it looked alot like it although mine was white and had a spoiler from a 1989 on top of the hatch along with the small ducktail at the back of the latch:


My second car was a 1985 Plymouth Horizon with 90k on it -it lasted me 70 miles with the cruise set at 70 mph on the freeway before it burned a hole in the #3 piston. Good thing I only paid $300 for it.
My third car when it was at it'* best:

As it is currently (but it needs a new top BADLY as well as the motor put in it that'* been in the garage for about 2 yrs)

Then I drove my dads 1978 Dodge Diplomat with a 360 until I bought another 1987 Dodge Lancer (non ES, but a turbo and with alot more options than the Shelby Clone had) -no pics of either of these although I was just given the title two months ago to the Diplomat which has been given a 318 -needs a good tuneup before I can drive it and mod for drags.
After the second Lancer I bought my first Bonneville, and my 3rd H-body (Lancer'* were H-bodies) and here'* where my B-ville addiction started -THE ORIGINAL OL BLUE EYES BONNE!!!!!!

After that I had this 1993 SSE for a couple months until I was laid off from my job.

I drove a 1989 Buick Lesabre Limited until I got my 1994 SLE which alot of you saw me ***** up over in the Your Rides section.
After that it was a 1999 SSEi which I still see and drive every so often, followed by my current SSE and Park Avenue w/Prestige package.

First car and first love, as my sig. says my 1987 Bonneville LE. On it'* 3rd transmission, i know because i just put the 3rd in and have reciepts for the 2nd being installed. 204000 miles on it and runs like a champ, my oil level never moves and she'll spin the tires half way down the block. "The Villian" as i call her.

follw the link itll show you my last 2 cars semi nice 91 Regal limeted and SBE 91 Lumina Euro

Before that was a 1988 Saab 9000 Turbo (got me hooked on boost but cost me my yearly income in repairs..DO NOT BUY A SAAB UNLESS YOU ARE RICH!!!)
Then my highschool ride was a Jamaica yellow 1992 Sunbird LE 2 door
then my very first car was the one I totalled after driving 2 weeks a 1986 El Camino conquista 305 4 bbl 4 speed auto floor shift bucket seats all avaiable options SUPER RARE with less than 75k on the ODO ....but when I was done the right side of the car looked like it had been creamed by a semi the RF headlight was torn almost off the car the rear curved glass was shattered and the impact was so great it not only bent the RF control arms but actually seperated the engine from the transmission by breaking all the bolts!.....if yer gonna do something DO IT RIGHT!
