My Last 2 Cars

Identical to the one above, my first new car, purchased in 1979, was a 1978 Volvo 244 - what a lump.  Has there ever been a worse color for a car? (photo courtesy of   It was replaced with a 1986 Ford F-150 in 1987, still going strong twenty-six years later.  Mine looks a heck of a lot better than the one below and has an 8 foot bed, not a six like the one shown.

Oh GW - I could wax lyrical about all the cars I have had over the years. Because my son played the double bass I had a van for years, first a mini van, then a Simca van. My last few cars were all Fiestas but now I no longer drive so I can just look back on them fondly.
