^^^^
Ha ha,anyway my motoring heritage:-

1968 Ford Cortina Mk2
1978 Renault5 TS
1972 Daimler Sovereign
1971 Lotus Super7
1980 Vauxhall Cavalier Sportshatch
1983 Lancia Delta GT
1973 Ford Cortina Mk3 shooting brake
1979 Opel Rekord shooting brake
1984 Cadillac Eldorado
1980 Opel Manta hatchback
1972 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Rocket 455 convertible
1988 Pontiac Grand Prix
1989 Nissan 200SX Turbo
1991 Toyota MR2
1992 Volvo 940 Turbo wagon (borrowed-oh the shame)
1988 Ferrari 328 GTS (borrowed-what an anti climax)
1990 Porsche 928 S4
1988 Mercedes 300TE
1989 Nissan 200SX Turbo (second)
1986 Porsche 944
1992 Mercedes 300SE

The outright winners from the above are the Olds and the Porsche 928-highly commended to the Nissan turbos-i'd have any of them back in a heartbeat.
Next will have to be a 129, maybe an exceptional 107.

They are beautiful cars but your average C-5 vette eats them for lunch. They cost a fortune to fix. Women go crazy over them for some reason.

Instead of listing them all, I just want to list my favorites:

1959 Austin Healy 100-6
1962 Austin Healy 3000 triple carb (how I wish I had that one back)
1965 Olds Vista Cruiser wagon. Had these weird windows in the roof that were really cool, and one of the first all-aluminum motors ever built.

1965 Ford Falcon hotrod built from junkyard parts. 3-speed on the tree converted to Hurtz mystery shifter, a 302 motor out of a 70? Mustang, headers and Thrush glass packs. Jacked up on cheap shackles, blew the doors off of everything in its class.

1968 Ford F100 hotrod. Same exact set-up as above, except the car was originally a 6. Those low rear-end gears in that 9" inch rear, and the 3sp trans made it one low geared SOB. Wouldn't do over 75, but man, what a ride getting there.

1971 Delta 88 ragtop, last decent year for GM cars
1957 Buick Special
1977 280E

My current 280SL!
My current 1998 Camry! Most dependable car I ever owned

My worst:

1980 Trans Am. What a piece of shit

1984 Delta 88. Never bought a GM car again after that fucker

1977 Caprice. Worst gas mileage, worst repair record, worst driveabilty than anything I ever drove.






Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

RE: Cars I've owned or had the pleasure of access to...

Ha, I remember those Vistas with the friggin second floor windows. I had a Pontiac Executive 400 wagon (the Donut Machine). Everyone would pile up as far back as possible and coupled with the rear weight, bald ass tires and the frozen tundra of Montrose Harbor we would spin and spin like the turtle in the Mr. Wizard cartoon until one of the hapless teens regurgitated Southern Comfort and oj on the rest. Master cylinder caught fire and it took 3 guys to steer that behamoth home. I fixed it after about two months. Who say's you don't need friends.

I had it for a long time. I parked it in the back 40 for years. During the "custom van" craze of the 80s their roofs became worth more than the stupid car, because the van freaks chopped them off and welded them to their rigs. As a result, they have become very rare. Wish I still had it. It had the first FM radio I've ever had in a car, and I used to tune in "underground radio". I had a mattress rigged up in the back. God bless the drive-in movie days, they made a man out of me.

My buddy Danny Greenstein (fellow Irishman) had one of those vans. Maroon with a goddamn tear drop window. Bright red barf and bong-water encrusted Elvis-style shag carpeting throughout. It would be redundent to mention the Craig 8-track. It had a moon roof that he altered to swing completely open for those not so rare moments when he would pop up through the giant, gaping hole, and in a drunken stupor while driving at break-neck speed, scream filthy anti-gay epithats at the pedestrians in our neighborhood now referred to as "Boys Town". there is a store there now called Gay-mart. I almost died laughing. To this day the annual gay parade down my childhood street attracts hundreds of thousands. Best party all year.
