    '89 Mustang 5.0 LX in December of 1996. A Christmas present from my father. He'd owned the car since new. I paid the insurance, maintenance, and repair. I also paid off the remainder of the note on it, about $2k.

    62 Impala SS. Sold it to a friend and he proceeded to put it into a telephone pole. Fortunately he survived. First new car was a 93 vibrant red Mustang GT w/black int. I loved that car

    In the garage
    1967 mustang fastback bought for $1000 in 1979. 289 4 spd 4.11 rear. No AC,PS, PB or any creature comforts. Black on black. Blew up the 289 at E-t0wn when I missed a shift and forgot to lift... Found a donor with a 428 and a c6 and swapped it out in my parents garage along with a Detroit locker. Oh, can't forget the Doug Thorley sidepipes.. and Keystone Klassic wheels....

    That car could go fast in a straight line, but had manual steering and 4 wheel drum brakes. It was just plain scary in the winter. Threw 4 bags of kitty litter in the trunk to try and keep it from spinning.

    Good memories of driving up and down the Turnpike with open headers and slicks in the rear. Gotta love that $.90 gas prices back then/

    1966 VW Bug. Painted it, slammed it, new interior, 1300 CC engine that ran great. Sold it months after my 16th birthday to help pops pay the bills. He was ****ed.
