I want to know your car history. What was your first car? Which was your favorite car? And what are you driving now - and why?
I have owned and operated a few cars throughout my life, and I pretty much remember every one of them. Don't worry, I will spare you all the details on every single one!
My very first car I drove to and from High School was shared between my mom and I. It was a 197? army green color Dodge Dart. I'm uncertain of the exact year of the car. Maybe my Dad will remember? :0) That thing drove like a Mack Truck. Not that I know how a Mack Truck drives, I'm just assuming that it drove like a Mack Truck because it had NO power steering. It was so ugly, the heater was broken and it leaked when it rained. I remember being embarrased driving it, but I figured it got me from point A to point B, so I grinned and beared it until I was able to save money to buy my first car.

My first car I actually owned was a 1981 baby blue Chevy Chevette. This car had manual transmission, and I had to learn how to drive it. Thanks to my Dad and FW (who was my boyfriend at the time), it took me no time at all to master those hills! Gosh, I'm really having to jog my memory. I can't remember what ever happened to that thing. It must not have lasted long, cause' I remember buying my first brand new car after I graduated from High School in 1985.

This had to be my most favorite car of all times. In fact, it is the only brand new car I've ever owned. It was a 1986 silver Nissan Pulsar. Boy, did I ever think I was hot stuff driving around with my sun roof out, my rocking stereo system and my shiny plastic wheels. I owed this car for many years, until right before I got married in 1993 at which point I owned a red Jeep Cherokee and then a hunter green Toyota 4-Runner after the kids were born.

Currently, I am driving my second favorite car of all times, a 1997 champagne color Ford Expedition. This family SUV seats nine passengers and believe me, there have been numerous times all nine seats have been occupied. It truly is a "Mom Mobile", as I cart around the kids and their friends to all of their activities and extra curricular functions. This vehicle has also gotten us to and from many vacations and each time it has been jammed packed with all of our goods. I don't see how I could possibly downsize. Here, FW and the girls are giving her a good washin'. She looks her best when she is sparklin' clean! This photo was taken in May before we had our driveway paved. Now, she stays alot cleaner and she is garage kept! I hope to keep her for a long time.
So, there you have it, my Car History in a nutshell. That was a fun walk down memory lane, Sayre. I can't wait to check out all the other "hot rods". You can too, just click here.
