1994 Mercury Sable. Drove it for a little while, wasn't really impressed. Then some driver from Maine slipped on ice, crossed the street, jumped a curb, went up my uphill driveway, and totaled it.

The thing I miss most is the half-tank of gas that I lost.

1982 Chevy *-10. With a 2 barrel Rochester atop the massive 2.8 liter V-6. Only 170,000 on the odometer. The best part was the 2.14 rear gears, I would probably say 0-60 in twenty seconds. Whatever speed you hit a hill at is what you stayed even floored. With all that in mind I loved that truck, my dad had fixed it up for me prior to me turning 16 and it looked great. Sold for $500, one of the biggest regrets in my life.

I had a S10 just like that in my past LOL but my first car was a 1964 Falcon Sprint (1970) It taught me to never put dual carbs on an unmodded car. I kept a army wool blanket on the back seat to put out flames.

96 neon, piece of crap. it was quick... for a 2.0L lol. i grew up in it since my mom bought it new, i tore it up as a kid so the interior was garbage. had non foulers on 3 out of the 4 sparkplugs because of leaky valve seals. stereo didnt work, smelled like bad milk the paint was flat and looked like a fat persons thighs due to hail damage. it was fun for what it was but i like torque. lots of vids of it on my youtube.

Mine was a 1993 Pontiac Bonneville SLE. Got it in March of '08 wit 54k on it. Real clean, good body. In September, I stupidly pulled out blindly in front of an F250. Smashed my rear end and broke his head light. Sad thing is, I had just filled up. Good thing is, that gas lasted about 8 months, till I got it repaired. I now have a '93 with a '94 rear end.
