i was tagged by voenix risingin taking a lil’ trip down memory lane and re-visiting the car’s i’ve owned. i should state most of these pics are not of the actual cars i owned – rather, they’re internet grabs.
#1. my first car, a 1972 dodge dart. yellow. not a bad starter car eh? i only had her for a short time tho’ – the town i grew up in was doing a bit of road construction – the kind where they remove the pavement leaving the manhole covers sticking up a few inches. i drove over one of the manholes and it ripped my axel off the car (apparently i had a bit of a rust issue).
#2. 1976 buick skylark. nothin’ special about this ride, other than the fact it had a fast oil leak. i went through so much oil the year i had her. the engine finally blew a couple blocks from my house. i left her there.
#3. 1980 plymouth champ. again, my version of this car was yellow. i loved this car. it was quite the party car for me and my friends. it had a moon roof and a killer cassette deck stereo. unfortunately i drove her into the back of some massive truck that was stopped in the middle of the road over a blind hill. bad bad bad day.
#4. 1976 ford f-150. this one was falling apart before i got her. parts of the floorboard was rusted through (fun in winter time). there was no radio in the truck. i had a lil’ cassette boombox velcroed to the dash. pure class.
#5. 1989 chevy s10 tahoe pickup. the first brand new vehicle i ever owned. i wish i could have found a better pic of the truck. it was white with maroon interior. it was awesome. it also had a cool as fuck steering wheel. i loved that steering wheel.
#6. 1992 mitsubishi eclipse. what a fun car this was. pure fun to drive.
#7. 2001 chevy malibu. what do i say about this car? hmmm… well i bought it very spur of the moment. you see i had just quit my job and got rid of the eclipse in prep for a new job i had in hawai’i. but then 9/11 happened and hawai’i’s economy tanked and the job got put on hold indefinitely. after 3 months of being on hold, i asked for my job back and had to get a new apartment and car fast. hence the malibu. it was perfectly fine as a car. just boring as hell.
#8. 2005 mazda 3. my current car. i love love love love this car. of course i’ve written about it here. it really is a sweet little car.
