The milestone? This makes car number two hundred!

I've owned a lot of vehicles over the years, but nowhere close to 200. Doubt I'd be close to 50, let alone 100.

I'm somewhere in the 20s and It would be difficult to list them all in order. There are a few I only owned for a few days, because they were part of three party trades, or purchased for the purpose of making a trade.

At 48, I bought #18 home last month, a very dependable 2010 Honda Accord with 130,000. The car it replaced was my 1996 Impala SS with 215,000 (bought new, still in the garage), which kept breaking down over the past few years.

I generally tend to hold onto vehicles for a long time.

That Warlock was a pretty cool truck. And rare! All those Corvettes, and no love for the C6?

Those were basically black versions of the lil red express, correct? I think i have only seen 1 or 2 warlocks in my time, versus at least a dozen lil red expresses!

Black with gold trim and dark gold rims. I loved everything about that truck... except for its dismal power. I believe it was a 318 2brl.

Fuego:



this is exactly the one we had... with fold back roof; it was Yvonnes daily driver.


She got a lot of looks and compliments when driving it (though she'd get that driving in a rusted-out Pinto )

Pics? (You knew it was coming)

Nice Warlock, I'd never heard of nor seen one of those. Always saw the Lil Red Express. Glad they ditched the exhaust stacks.

Longest I owned one was thirteen years. Shortest was less than a day. Had it sold before I bought it. Several for just a week or three. I sat down about fifteen years ago and made a list. Took a while to get it in order, but luckily I had pics of most so they were dated.
