  • 1984 Ford EXP.  It barely ran and used to catch on fire.  It was also totally impractical.  It was totally worth the $400 I spent on it.

    That has chick magnet written all over it!

    50% of the time, it works all the time.
    It was at least as effective as Sex Panther, although cars that repeatedly catch on fire don't smell great, either.  

    Also, I saw your post above.  This EXP was purchased in Lafayette, Indiana and driven almost exclusively in Bloomington.  That's also where it met its final end - being crushed into a cube.

    Transportation to the beach was a 50 cc scooter followed by a 1965 yellow mustang without air in Florida. Scooter was cooler to drive - more air flow.

    MY first car was a 1971 Monte Carlo, but prior to turning 16 I painted and did bodywork to buy my first car.  The first car a 'refurbed' was a 1974 Nova that my dad bought for $100 and sold for $1200.  After that, his buddies had me working their cars all summer.  It was good practice for my Monte Carlo.  It had 140,000 miles when I bought it and occasionally bent a pushrod, so I kept a bag of them in the trunk to change out. :D   I sold that car for college money and bought a 1974 Chevelle Laguna S-3 with a 400 small block, swivel buckets and an awesome 8-track.  I quickly got it looking presentable with white paint, burgundy stripes and an L88 hood scoop.  I've had many cars since, but the memorables have been:

    1970 Chevelle that I redid from the ground up.  I've owned it for 19 years.

    1970 Mercedes 280SL.  I planned on redoing it from the ground up, but a guy from Astoria NY made me an offer I couldn't refuse!image 

  • Awesome 8-track?
