1977 Datsun 280z.

A beaut.

I wrapped that sporty dark green puppy around a telephone pole my first semester of college.

A year later I bought a 1978 Toyota Corolla and drove that little putt-putt for years.

I am these days on my 11th year with a black Korando jeep I am thoroughly pleased with. There are only a couple of vehicles I'd replace it with.

My dad had a Jeep CJ-5 and I ached for one.

I've never had one but i suspect i might foolishly splurge my pension refund on one in my fifties.

You only live twice.

A sherman tank disguised as a 1983 Buick Regal. The rear windows didnít roll down by design. My friends called it the cop car.

1979 Pontiac Acadian. Absolute garbage but I didn't care because I don't give a damn about cars. They're a necessary evil. I'm a motorbike guy.

Not the coolest car but it had 60 thousand km on it, my grandma gifted it to me and she never drove it in the winter so it was MINT.

Eventually t boned a woman who ran a stop  sign and insurance have me 4 grand for it.

When I lived in Australia in the late 1970s I drove a Holden Statesman...had a pretty good job, so could afford one.

1986 Buick Regal


A total pile of junk that our neighbor had for sale in his driveway for about 6 months. It literally caught on fire 2 or 3 times while I was driving it and then, miraculously, managed to perform normally during the test drive when we took it to the dealer as a trade-in.

I do miss the navy velour bench seats though. Sexy as hell.

My first car was a beautiful 1991 Chrysler sundance. Drove that into the ground till I sold it to go into a destruction derby.

I miss those old 1980s couch cars. Even mid-size sedans were like that. I got to go through two midsize 80s sedans in my time, a Dodge Dynasty and a Plymouth Reliant. Nice front bench and steering column shift. Handled like shit but were smooth. Not the best cars by any means, but they had their charm. Looking back, I wish I had gotten a big Buick or something. But that was when everyone wanted to drive rice racers and do tuning and crap and so did I for about 5 years. My favorite though was my Monte Carlo. Nice low-key pseudo-luxury coupe.

The car hierarchy of cool is this-
1. Sports Sedans
2. Full-Size Couch Cars
3. Trucks
4. Luxury Coupes
5. Sports Cars
6. True Jeeps
7. Full-Size Vans
8. SUVs
9. Sport Wagons
10. Family Sedans
11. Compacts
12. Minivans
