Previous cars? Prior or first Nissans?

Lets get some history on everyone here. I know I have a few cars to list being an old gear head......and loving to talk about cars.

1) 79 Olds Cutlass - purchased new after H.S. Still my weekend warrior with only 70k miles, great original paint and a nice 350hp/350 swapped into it.
2) 78 Datsun B210 - H.S. sweethearts car, now my wife, before Nissan changed its name and was as slow as a snail. Hard to believe that it is the same blood line as the Murano/350Z/Altima.
3) 76 Nova - Sunkist orange - bought to garage my Cutlass after becoming a Jayhawk. A great car for Chiefs football games - easily found after too much tailgating.
4) 84 Nissan Sentra - started a family & had to settle down a little.
5) 88 Civic LX - great car!
6) 91 Cutlass sport - ok, but not like the 1st one.
7) 94 Accord LX - was my daily driver until the Murano, now it makes a great car for my oldest boy in H.S.
8) 97 Grand Caravan ES - requirement with 3 boys and bball & fball teams to hall around.
9) 2001 Mits Spyder GT - the wife got tired of driving the mini van everyday!
10) 2003 Murano SL AWD - puts a big smile on my wifes face each morning! I get mine on the weekends.
11) 2004 Lincoln Navigator 4WD - the wife took over the MO, great for hauling the wife, 3 boys & the dog.
12) 2005 Subaru Imrpeza RS Sport AWD - a fun little ride.

1) 1969 MGB-GT. My first car at age 16! Cool...made for hot stuff in HS.
2) 1969 Camaro RS w/327. Red! fast! Never should have let this one go.
3) 1979 Pontiac Trans AM. My Smokey and the Bandit days!
4) 1981 Honda Prelude. Nice, basic, reliable transportation.
5) 1985 Suzuki Samurai. One of the 1st ones on the road.
6) 1987 Nissan Maxima. Nice car...lousy tranny. Too many repairs.
7) 2000 Nissan Maxima SE. Wow....great car!
8) 2003 Nissan Murano SE. Ditto...even more so.

There was also 3 motorcyles somewhere in all this too!

I forgot all about the 1964 Chevelle Malibu station wagon :mrgreen:
It's at the body shop fixing some rust bubbles and then to upholstery shop for new carpets. (350 SB with 700R4, headers, Flowmasters) Seafoam green with tan cloth interior (cool)

Then there's the 1985 BMW K100RS motorcycle and the 87 Ducati F1B 750 Roadrace replica (in not too good condition-sitting too long, bad gas)

No wonder I have a 1500sq ft garage.

Need a telethon for my insurance premiums. Good thing my wife is my agent.

Yes, the garage is detached. We use it for everything. Pig roasts when it rains, dance hall when it rains, etc. My wife says the garage is bigger than the house. Thats not true but because it is 12 feet high it looks it.

I picked up a great deal on a "Buddy-Lift" (4 post, hydraulic drive-on lift) at the Daytona Turkey Rod Run a few years ago and use it to work on and change oil on all the vehicles.

Only have 7 cars now plus 2 bikes. Mostly because (excuses, rationalizing) my wife and I drive a LOT. She puts on 40,000 miles a year in her business and I live in Florida and work in Pennsylvania right now. I usually commute by commercial air carriers but have driven it quite a few times. I have been doing this for almost 4 years now. We try to even it out over all the vehicles so we don't trash just one car.

Her PT Cruiser is 2 years old and has 60,000+ miles on it already. Mostly because the Chevelle wagon has been in the body shop for 4 or 5 months. The 34 Ford is in pieces again (has been for a long time) and the 80 Malibu is destined to be a race car (some day?).

My list, in order of succession.

After her husband died, she decided to sell it. I should have kept this and stored it away. :cry: I was a young stupid teenager back then. :P

1979 - Toy. Celica GT (5speed)
1979 - Buick Century (had 350 dropped in it) badge on door said V6 :twisted:
1981 Old Cutlass (v6- carbs sucked back then)
1983 Old Cutlass (v8-305...much better now)
1988 Ford Tempo (just stole my Cutlass )
1988 Mazda 626 LX (p.o.s.)
1979 Fiat Spider Conv. (also p.o.s)
1983 Toyota Supra (fun car)
1988 Nissan Maxima
1989 Toyota Supra Turbo (fun :twisted: )
1994 Mits. Galant (had to get- kids on the way) STILL OWN

dtw - I wish I had that much space. I'm planning on adding a fourth tandem garage onto my house this summer. Since the garage is set down 4 feet the ceiling will be high enough to get a lift. thus having space for 5 cars

With 3 boys & my love of cars I know I will eventually have a small car lot. :wink:

OGz - I hadn't noticed your car history over on FreshA.... My 79 Cutlass is my first car purchased new after HS graduation. I also was a crazy teen and dropped a 350hp/350 into the car at 30k miles. It now only has 70k miles on it & I was recently asked when I had it repaited, although it still is original paint! 8)

Hey Ks, I didn't see that thread at F.A. I'll have to check that out.

You still have that Cutlass? I'd love to see a pic of this. I wish I would have kept pictures of all my cars. :cry:

Putting a 350 in a car like that is dangerous for a teen. Many speeding tickets when I was young.
