the 8 cars I have owned

 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

I bought this car before I even had a license. It also was the start of me being in debt. Every month it needed at least 1 $500 repair.

This car was the source of a good 100,000 miles of fun driving around aimlessly. It was a great car, and my favorite car that I have owned.

1984 Ford Crown Vic.

I wish it came with the sirens. I didn’t have a picture of the actual one I had. Lets just say it looked a lot crappier, had 190,000 on it when I bought it. And cost a cool $400. It featured such luxuries as:

1. “Balony Skin” tires (thats what a cop yelling at me called them). They had absolutely no treads left on them, which made fish tailing around rotaries and skidding to long screetching noisy stops next to innocent pedestrians a blast.

2. Burnt oil smoke billowing out of the engine bay. It was concentrated just outside of the drivers side door, which made being pulled over a blast

This car lasted a solid month before the exhaust system literally fell of the car while I was driving it. Then the car sounded like a helicopter. So I “donated it” to the junk yard.

1996 Monte Carlo

The transmission was going, and was going to cost $2600 to fix. So I brought it to a little dealership, used a code scanner to clear all the check engine trouble codes the transmission kept throwing, and traded it in for this beast:

When I got this, it was actually primer grey. The guy that owned the dealership was really confused, and thought he was going to make a killing trading it for my monte carlo, but the joke was really on him. That monte carlo was still on his lot a year later. And this car had a 455 Big Block in it. It came with the Grand National body moldings, and I got it a fancy $300 MAACO paint job. Spared no expense. This car met an untimely demise while doing donuts in a parking lot one faitful night. I blew an engine bearing, and the engine was so big, it was impossible to take the oil pan off to even look at the problem without having to completely remove the engine. So I sold it to some guy for a couple hundred dollars.

1984 Chevy Blazer (K5)

1984 Buick Regal

I think I spent $3500 to buy this. It had a 4″ body lift and little 31″ tires on it. I drove it around for a couple months before I dismantled it and put $15,000 into it before I took it all apart again, and sold it for parts. I actually owned this truck during the time I owned the below 2 cars. It was just in pieces in my parents driveway the majority of the time

This car was nice, I ended up trading it in for the next car because it was designed stupidly. Everything was aluminum, and everything on it cost a ton.

2005 Pontiac Grand Am

Mine is grey, and I hate it. It’s just dumb
