    I really miss my first new car. It was a 1997 Hyundai Accent. Name:  a1aaccent2.jpg

    Then the most recent car that I miss was my 2011 Smart fortwo. I almost bought another over the Mirage but I wanted to give the Mirage a shot and try something new. Once I get some nice wheels and some suspension upgrades, I will love it just as much. Name:  263814_10150341055017788_3568214_n.jpg

    6 cars I miss.
    First was my 1987 dodge d100 pickup. Old man gave it to me as a graduation gift.
    Didn't understand mechanics back then and when I computer went screwy, I gave up on it. Regret it to this day

    2) 97 Toyota Tercel. 4 mt. Never gave me an issue. Towed during blizzard of 03 And government ducked me around as I was $20 short 4 days before pay day. Dumped it on them.

    3) 1995 Ford Taurus. Had over 275k when my friend I sold it to drove it to junkyard because of rust. Had original a4OD transmission.

    4) 1996 Ford Explorer. Got it for $275. My friends mechanic said it had a dropped cylinder. I put a $2 spark plug in, check engine light shut off, laughed at my best friend and drove it away. To be fair, he hated it. 5 years I owned, my brother put another 3 years on it. 215k on original A4OD transmission.

    5) 1997 Ford aspire. This one is a sad story. My friend and previous bosses brother had ALS.
    I was helping him with his used car lot.
    I detailed and serviced the cars and showed and sold them.
    His brother died.
    He gave me the car plus like 1500 for helping him.
    It went through the 201t blizzards we had .
    It threw up the transmission in May of 2015.

    6) my most recent car. 2004 Ford Crown Victoria Police Inteceptor. Black. Intimidating.
    Fell in love with my fiance in that car. Numerous road trips to NYC Maine Etc.
    Rust did it in. Traded it in on my 15 mirage.
    It was so bad the blend door stopped working. I had to pull the air bag seasonally to switch from heat to a.c. because I didn't have the time or money to have mechanics tear down dash for a $50 part.

    1967 Ford Mustang fastback. Could have been an asset, towards my retirement savings now. Lol
