Cars I've owned

This might be an incomplete list but it was fun to remember all these rides...
76 Pontiac LeMans (sold to a scotsman who wanted to drive it cross country)
85 Toyota Supra (left me stranded in Santa Cruz)
84 Pontiac Firebird (had straight pipes that burned anyone exiting the pass. side)
71 Fiat 850 (left me stranded EVERYWHERE, sold to a guy in the Keys)
74 Fiat 128 (parting out after rear ending an SUV, not me)
81 Fiat 124 spider (active duty)
95 GMC Sierra
71 Ford F150
00 Ford Focus (totaled, not by me)
04 Ford Focus (active duty)
86 Mitsubishi Montero (left me stranded in Los Banos)
76 Triumph TR7 (part owner, race car)
85 Jeep Wrangler
76 Toyota Corolla
2 x 69 Buick Skylarks (sold one, other was crashed by my dad)
81 Audi 4000
Great memories with all of these, each were memorable in their own way despite either leaving me stranded or being crashed by other people.

Heh, yeah. After a few years, the cars you've owned do make some pretty good memories. You've learned some things about driving thanks to them, don't you think?

Hm, come to think of it, you've driven a lot of cars. It would be kinda cool if you sort of compiled a series of the memories you got from them.
