Well, my first car was a 1967 Ford Fairlane wagon that my parents gave me, but I didn't have my license before that car went away. So the first car that was mine, bought and paid for was a 78 Chevy. But my first brand new car was a 1988 Ford Festiva like the one pictured here.
I had a collection of 70's cars mostly Ford including a Granada and a Versailes.
For a year I had an ex-police car in the fleet, a 1977 Plymouth Fury.
The 78 Monza was similar to this one.
For a couple of months in the mid 90's I had my only Japanese car, a Honda Accord. Never do that again.
My first truck was a Chevy. This beat up stepside was purchased at auction for $400 and sold 18 months later for the same price. Have to admit it was a lot of fun.
The only new car that I ever bought that wasn't a Ford. My 1994 Chevy S-10 SS. This was a lot of fun.
I had a 92 Crown Vic like this one. Actually I wish I stil had that. I know the guy I sold it to and he and his wife love it.
Now this one was at the same time one of the best and worst cars I've ever owned. A 93 Taurus SHOmatic. Fast and fun to drive, but with more problems than it was worth. I didn't even have the nerve to sell it, instead I donated it to charity with a list of all the problems in the glove box.
Just a quick stroll through the past. My parents weren't thrilled with my car collecting, at one time I had 5 cars and lived at home with Mom and Dad. I miss that feeling, you know walking out and trying to figure out what to drive today. I had my Mustang and the S-10 SS at the same time, as well as some of the 70's beaters. And as much as I hate white cars I had 3 at one time, just cause they were bargains. And I have 2 brothers who had cars and my parents each had a car, so for a brief while it looked like a used car lot around our house.
Only the pictures of the Chevy trucks are actually my vehicles, all others taken from Google image search. The shame is that I was too busy enjoying driving many of these vehicles to actually take pictures of them. Don't get me wrong, I have over 50 pictures of my Mustang, but not of many of the other cars. I'm not much of a photographer either, so they probably would have come out poorly anyway.
