1980 Toyota Corolla SR-5 Liftback - my first car:

1988 Mazda 323 GT Sedan - turbocharged, intercooled 5 speed, very rare - only 800 imported into the US. More fun to drive than nearly anything:

1982 Toyota Tercel, A $300 piece of crap that I bought to get me through after the Mazda was wrecked and had to wait for an eternity for the insurance lawsuit to settle. No photo exists of the car because to waste film on it would have been sacrilege.

Fast forward a few years. Got married, along with my wife came this 1988 Mazda RX7 GXL 5-speed. We still have it. 49,000 mile survivor:

She also had a 1992 VW Fox 4 door 5-speed. Good little car, great on fuel, so homely that again a photo would have been a waste of film. Absolutely no fun to drive except for the stick shift. I've almost forgotten that we owned it.

1982 Volvo 240 DL. Inherited it from my father-in-law when he passed. 45,000 miles on it when we got it in 1999:

2000 Chrysler 300M. Still the best damn car I've ever owned. Shot this pic a couple of weeks ago just after she hit 307,000 miles. It runs every bit as well as it looks and still has yet to ever have a ride on a flatbed:

1999 Chrysler 300M. Bought this car in 2008 after it came in to my shop on trade with the front bumper fascia hanging off. Sold the Volvo on Ebay and used the proceeds to fix it up. Took it off the road in 2013 when we bought the Journey, stored it for a couple of years, and gave it to my son in November when he got his license: 141,000 miles and runs almost as well as my 2000:

And, of course, the reason we're here...
