Re: Top 3 Cars You Have or Did Have?

1. 1982 Ford Mustang - T-tops, special carb, fast.... and never again, will I own another Ford (( Fix Or Repair Daily) unless it's a '68 Mercury Cougar.

2. 1970 Chevy Impala - prob my fav car... always related to the line in the song "Love Shack"
"I got me a Chevy, it seats about 20, So hurry up and bring your jukebox money"

3. 1990 Toyota Corolla. Man... you couldn't kill that car! Nicknamed "The car that refused to die." I sold it to a friends brother who's driving it still.... dang lil car! LOL
Smoke 'em if ya got 'em!

Sh*t happens... but don't worry, it usually happens to me.

Re: Top 3 Cars You Have or Did Have?

I kid my husband that the only reason i went out with him was because of his car--- a 1969 cherry red Mustang that he later traded for a V8 Vega (how stupid is that!).

About 10 years later he bought me a 1969 black mustang and then

a few years ago he bought me a 2004 White Mustang GT convertible which I loved until he lost his job and we could no longer afford the payments.

I think I'm in the minority here (and certainly at SHR) as we have been a FORD family and even though we've owned Dodge, Chevy/GMC pick ups, my favorite truck is a Ford, preferably an older Ford too.

Re: Top 3 Cars You Have or Did Have?

1959 I had a 37 Chevy, it was ugly but ran good !!

1960 I had a 55 Chevy with the hanging dice & 8-ball on the gear shift. I was stylin !!!!

1976-- I got a Brand New 76 International Terra Pickup which I still have today. Thank God, most parts are GM cause they don't make these anymore.

1989-- Still have my 88 Chevy Silverado Pickup. Great Truck I drive daily.

1992- Got a 51 Chevy Pickup and restored it. I put a 350 engine in and sold it to a man from Hawaai & it went on the boat to him. He redid it and sent me a pic with it in pieces, I was so sad .

2002- Brought a 49 Ford and hated it, never finished restoring it and sold it on EBAY. No more Fords for me !!! Still made money, just didn't like the car. Guess I'm a Chevy Fan !!!

Would Love to win the Lottery and buy one of Tony's Cup Cars. Dream On Fool...lol

My family is a Ford family. :D Of the 4 current vehicles the only oddball is the Geo Tracker that my mom thought she had to have back in '94. (That lil' thing keeps right on going.) She got a Taurus back in 2002 and drives it like she's qualifying at KS Speedway. :lol:

Re: Top 3 Cars You Have or Did Have?

YAY for Ford--- Oh wait, this is an SHR site. Probably shouldn't say that. Anyway Tink I really liked that Wind/Tornado video and put in on my facebook. The pictures were beautiful in their own way but boy 89 people killed this weekend in Missouri's tornado reminds us of how incredibly powerful the weather can be.

Re: Top 3 Cars You Have or Did Have?

I worked at a Ford dealership in MT, as a cashier, for about 4 years. One of the MANY things that Ford did for us at the dealership, was to offer the entire Ford history. Turns out, Ford realized that once "everyone" bought a Ford... what next? How could he keep money generating in? By making parts CHEAP so that you come back and buy parts. I KID YOU NOT. This is in the Ford history.

Many, many times, I heard over and over... "Why don't they make better parts?"

"Gee, I don't know." I'd say, taking their money......

It's an UGLY fact of life, marketing and competition.... and personally, I don't like it. Even while working at a dealership and having parts at cost, labor for a 6-pack.... that darn mustang almost nickel and dimed me to death!!! Fix Or Repair Daily .... should be part of Ford's motto. LOL

Found On Road Dead

Freakin' Old Rebuilt Dodge

There's a few more....just can't think of them. Anyone?

Re: Top 3 Cars You Have or Did Have?

1978 Pontiac Firebird Espirit (This was my first and favorite car. Bought it used in 1984 and wish I could have kept it as a future classic, but I needed the trade-in money towards my next car)

1988 Pontiac Firebird TransAm

1994 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP (Special limited edition, painted black with gold trims and gold wheels, it was quite a looker!)

Now I drive a 2003 Chevy Trail Blazer, but it's been a great SUV, that's why I still have it, and it can actually get it's self out of a snow drift since it has real 4WD, unlike all of todays AWD SUVs. :roll:

Re: Top 3 Cars You Have or Did Have?

64 Chevy Impala ss with a 327cid-slip and slide with power glide trans.
71 Chevy MonteCarlo 350cid-350 trans.
anything after the early 70's was a piece of %hit and they get worse every year. 2000 ss MonteCarlo,nickel and dime you to death,2003 Chevy Silverado 1/2 ton is a car with a truck body on it.Rides and looks nice,has plenty of power-but i wouldn't call it a truck.The only truck built somewhat like one anymore is a Ford and the only thing worse than owning a Ford is a Chrysler product.Ford circles the problem and Chrysler just is a problem,come to think of it,they are all problems considering what they produce today.I'll give Ford credit,least they never had the goverment bail em out.
