    Toss up for me between my first car, 73 340 Plymouth Duster and my current SRT challenger.

    2001 Trans Am Firehawk #302. 540 of them made that year; 34 or 36 were Canadian cars. Won the All-GM Nationals for Daily Driver Pontiac 1980-newer in 2002; had to sell it, though. Now its one of 8 or 10 Firehawks in Europe!

    55 Chevy convertible. Bought it in 1970 with $300 my dad loaned me. All stock except for new top and fresh baby blue paint. 250 6 cyl, 3 on the tree converted to floor. I was a aircraft mechanic in the USAF and my best friend was in the motor pool and was in charge of the auto hobby shop on the base. When we were done with it... 421 Pontiac with tri-power, 4 speed Muncie, bucket seats, aluminum mags. Wish I would've kept that car but I got sent to Germany. Oh well......

    My 1968 Chrysler Newport was a cool sled. I would have loved to keep it, but it was too big to fit in my garage!

    Lots of nice cars on here!! From 1974 to 1982 my daily driver was a 1968 Shelby GT500KR. Found it on a car lot in Los Angeles. Bought it with re-enlistment bonus and Ford XL trade in. Was a good car.. would pass everything but a gas station... literally!!

    Weird how time changes your perspective. I’ve had multiple of each. Corvettes,Cameron’s trans am, mustang, Chevelles and GTO’s and a few hot rod trucks.Never likes the looks of Mopar stuff) Never really regret selling any of them. In the end, they are just modes of transportation. We are at a time in our life where we could afford any car within reason. I really like my beat up 15 Scion XB. Not planning on replacing it unless it blows up. Getting ready to hit a 100k and I’m hoping to get 200k more out of.
