I used to have a red '67 Cutlass 442. Why in the world did I sell it?? Oh yeah, I remember now... 11 mpg highway, 11 mpg city.

I feel the same way about my 1st car. A 71 Mercury Cyclone w/351 Cleveland. Back in 78 when I got it it was only $1800 but when I was looking for a car in 06 they were @ cheapest $18,000. That's when I bought the 53.

I go back a little further for my 1st car.  When I turned 16, I bought a used Honda 250 scrambler motorcycle.  My mom hated it.  I didn't get a car until 1966.  Bought a "not so good shape" 1956 Chevy Bel Air for $200; had 7 cracked pistons.  Rebuilt the motor and drove it for 2 years and sold it for $250.  I would love to have that back too!  Who knew!

'07 Titan that I have thoroughly enjoyed. Not great on gas mileage but pulls well for a half-ton.

And here's my sons truck. It took him 2 months to get up the courage to drive it.

It is a lot of fun to go out and play with. Not sure how people use it as a daily driver, but as a toy it is a blast.

Just listed my 2001 Buick LeSabre Custom for sale on Craigslist. It's finally time to move on from it. Thing was a beast, had a supercharger and a turbo in it. Looking at getting a BMW 3 series or maybe a Mustang of some sort. Have about 15K to work with after I sell my car.

Figured I would update this, ended up not getting a BMW or a Mustang. Ended up with a Honda Accord V6 with some mods already done to it. Has a turbo and a new air intake on it. Pushes right around 300 Hp as is. Will have pictures later, waiting on the paperwork​. My dad and I had a disagreement on what kind of car to get so this was a compromise for us.

My beast. Unfortunately at 245,000 miles she's gonna have to retire. Getting a little tired, and the rear end is rotting. Wife's Sequoia in the background. Looking at an Audi S4, why you ask? Watch the first minute or 2 of Cars. Speed... I am speed. Taken last summer.

One of the ladies that occasionally plays with my wife and I has an Audi S4.  She loves it.  Her husband has a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

This is my baby. Bought her new in 2015 (Dodge Durango R/T). Will be dropping a supercharger in her next year at this time.

Been looking at those a lot lately. Very sleek looking. Might have to include it in the search next year's when my wife wants a new vehicle.

Now that you've got it broken in, if it goes forwards/backwards and stops, you can always find a use for it.

 

I seldom get rid of a vehicle until I have it towed off to the salvage yard ;)

The rear diff is not in good shape. Frame is rotted, it's lived it's life on salt covered roads of "The UP" I can almost hear the rust forming.

 

Note to all: Never buy a car from Michigan... salt = bad

Neither. I already own a drag car that runs low 9s on the engine and mid 8s with two kits. Cool concept but not something you drive on the street all that much.

Muscle cars generally don't do much other than a straight line.
