The "Post Your Car History" Thread

Postby Sir Tonk » Fri Sep 20, 2013 3:09 pm

We've got a few "list your current stable" threads going on, but not one for a list of everything you've ever owned (that I could find). I know a few of you have been around a couple of years and have some great lists as well as stories, so feel free to share and include pictures.

I will start with my own, ordered by manufacturer. Cars I still own are in bold:


1987 GMC Jimmy
1993 GMC Safari
1981 Chevrolet El Camino
1982 Chevrolet Custom Van
1992 Buick LeSabre
1996 Buick Roadmaster

1966 Ford Galaxie 500
1970 Ford Galaxie XL
1982 Ford Mustang LX
1984 Ford Club Wagon
1986 Ford Mustang GT
1989 Ford Mustang Interceptor
1996 Mercury Sable wagon
1988 Lincoln Mark VII LSC

1992 Chrysler LeBaron

1990 Mazda Miata

1979 Volvo 265 wagon
1989 Volvo 240 wagon
1991 Volvo 940 Turbo


I'm currently looking for a 1970-1976 Ranchero to replace the El Camino, which was stolen a couple of years ago. I really love the Roadmaster, but I like having the open bed of an El Camino/Ranchero/Caballero. Pictures will come, I still need to track down a few of the cars I haven't had in a while.

You didn't bother to link to it, so I'm assuming it is this one?

The vehicles I have driven, in chronological order. Ones I still drive are bold.

1999:
1993 GMC S15 Sonoma (mom's truck)

2001:
2001 Toyota Echo (dad's car)

2002 (this is the year I got my license):
1983 Ford F-150 box truck (government vehicle, barracks linen department used it to deliver clean linens)
1996 Ford Ranger Sport (was mine, I wrecked it)
1996 Chevy Blazer (roommate's car)
2002 Chevy Express (government vehicle)
1996 Hyundai Elantra (friend's car)
1964 Dodge Ram Turbo Dual (government vehicle)
1961 Chevy Van (government vehicle)

2005:
1992 Lincoln Mark VII Bill Blass

2008:
2004 Chrysler GT Cruiser (mom's car)

Notes:
The Dodge Ram only had 65k miles on it, as it rarely ever went off-base. It also ran on both unleaded and diesel (one tank for each).
The Chevy Van had a vacuum-shift automagic transmission, and had the frightening capability of hitting 80mph in 2nd gear.
The Chevy Express scared me, as it was a front-wheel-drive full-size van. Whoever thought this was a good idea should be shot.
If I hadn't had that 5x rollover with my Ranger, I wouldn't have my Mark VII today.
