1970 Ford Cortina. My parents bought if for me. Go to college car. Pretty sure my dad bought it because it had brand new Pirelli tires on it. It was British Motor Racing green.

1976 Datsun B210. First car I bought with my own money. Loved that car. It was a notch back, white with blue interior. Bought it brand new after I graduated from college and started working full time. Named it Aka Chan which is Japanese for "baby" because I was waiting for it to grow into a 280Z.

1950 black Ford, three on the floor, with nip and tuck Naugahyde interior white and purple stripes (yeah I know, but that was the first owners fault). Ran like a bat. Had a broken bolt on the steering box so when I wanted to turn right I had to spin the steering wheel about a half block early so the slack was taken up and the gear box stopped moving. Ended up in a buddy's garge when I left town. I have no idea what happened to it after that. Paid $50 for it.

In 1988 I purchased my first car at seventeen years of age. The car was a 1981 Ford Fairmont. I had a lot of fun with the car even though it was underpowered with a four cylinder engine in it.

A 1955 Chevy 210 2-door sedan with inline 6 and two speed automatic that had been bought used for my Mom when she had got a job. She got a new car in 1965. (The car in the pic is a 4-door)

Red '71 Camaro. It had been the "driver's ed" car for all of my 5 older siblings. By the time I got my license, that thing only lasted a year then the transmission went out. Not a good car if you have to drive in snow. I hate rear wheel drive cars.
