1st - 1980 Datsun B-210. Stick shift. Gutless and piece of crap. Only paid $600 though and it drove at least.

2nd - 1983 Volvo 240 Turbo. Felt like a Sportscar in comparison to the B210 powerwise and handling isn't bad. Also a stick.

3rd - 1997 Volvo 850 GLT. Almost a sportscar. 190 HP, 5 cyl inline engine was automatic, but had sport, economy and winter modes. Maroon w/ Black leather interior, moon & sunroofs, dual climate control, decent sound system. I did 130 along the Columbia river gorge once and it could've tached out at 140 if I really tried (I don't know if I've even freeflown much faster considering that I can barely get into a sit/stand). Unfortunately, I rearended a small pickup in commute traffic which totaled it. (Insert cryint emoticon.)

4th and current - 1993 Volvo 940 Turbo. VERY low miles and bought with settlement check. Still had <100K. I still miss that 97 I crashed.

Started driving in 93 . always worked on my own.

1970 F100 240CID 6 cyl , 3 on tree.
Was rusty , but not bad for age. Good truck, solid drive line sold it since got sick of rusty bolts.

1983 F250 6.9 L Diesel 4spd. Huge tank , ran great. If you could get the traction (2wd) it pull out a stump. Had some guy forget to stop and ran into me, bent the frame bad and the truck was totaled. Got $1000 more than I paid for it from in the insurance co.

1994 F250 7.3 IDI Turbo Diesel , 4wd, 5 spd. Again huge tank. Too heavy for te 4wd, it is too easy to get stuck . eagine runs great and tons of power. Never go non-turbo again. But it is a height maintenance truck has 175000 miles and I sewer it got to turn a wrench every 5000 miles other than oil changes… still got it

1998 Saturn SL2 5spd . bought it cheep since I was looking to commute to Manassas VA. Reliable, peppy , no problems other than the idiot that ran into me and totaled it and made me sore for a while.

2002 Saturn SL2 5spd. I liked the 1st Saturn so much I got another used one. enough said.

1st - 1980 Datsun B-210. Stick shift. Gutless and piece of crap. Only paid $600 though and it drove at least.

I drove mine for 6 months with the radiator & core constantly overheating so I had to drive with the heat on.. used to drive it up the coast every other weekend (LA to Morro Bay) for R&R..

never gave up on me, until the tranny took a dive at a stoplight:$:)
