For most people this is an easy subject. They own a car it might be new, old, financed, paid for, blue, orange, or what have you. For us this gets a little more complicated.

It used to be that we drove what we could afford. As it happened it was a lucky day if we could afford a $400 car, insurance, gas and keep it running. We have had quite a few cars through the years.The ones that have come and gone:

  • 72 VW Super Beatle Auto-Stick (blew the engine)
  • 76 Pontiac Gran Prix (why did I stop driving this boat?)
  • 7? Datsun B210 (ran it till the clutch gave out)
  • 80 Chevy Monte Carlo
  • 74 Chevy Vega
  • 79 Subaru wagon (drove into the dirt, actually a mailbox on the ice)
  • 7? Toyota Corolla ($250 drove it until it died and sold it for $50)
  • 80 Triumph Spitfire (british cars are too expensive and finicky to actually drive)
  • 8? Chevy Chevette
  • 8? Mercury ?
  • 67 VW Bug Baja (sold it while I was in Chicago)
  • 79 Dodge Van (took me to Chicago where it was wrecked)
  • 8? Chevy Celebrity
  • 84 Renault Alliance
  • 88 Toyota MR2 (traded it for more vehicles)
  • '81 Datsun B310
  • '94 Nissan Truck (to Jack)
  • '79 Chevy LUV (to Charlie)
  • '98 Isuzu Rodeo (to Jack)
  • '91 Buick Le Sabre (salvaged)
