1995 Toyota Celica hatchback. It was fun, and still beats the interior quality of any other car I've owned.

1950 Pontiac coupe. Stick on the column flathead 6 cylinder. Paid $50 for it circa 1962. Quickly sprayed it with cans of grey primer. It lasted a few months before I broke the tranny . Ah, the good old days....

1974 VW Bug. Orange with black trim - the colors matched my high school. I got it at the start of school that year - August I guess. And totalled it by September. 3 accidents, one month, all in the high school parking lot. Oh yeh, mom and dad were proud. My driving has improved since then I"m happy to say.

1987 Nissan Maxima it was two-tone Bronze and Beige. Digital Dashboard, it talked! But, I had a lot of problems with it and was naive about cars. And young lol! Always loved Maximas from a little kid. Would love to have another one with disposable income to restore one to mint condition

1990 Chevy Lumina Eurosport sedan. It was passed down to me from my parents. 3.1L V6, burgundy interior. It was a base Euro, so it didn't have the sport gauges or spoiler, nor bucket seats (just a good old bench seat). One of the original wheel covers fell off on the highway so I stuck some cheap Wal-Mart wheel covers on it. Drove it throughout high school and got rid of it my freshmen year in college. It had 225,000 miles when I sold it.

The driver's side doors were replaced and repainted after a hit and run by a semi while it was parked. The only things I had to replace during the time I drove it was a fuel pump, the battery, and the original stainless steel exhaust that lasted for 12 years. It treated me well.
