On this page I will mention some cars that I've owned and loved, or at least respected, in roughly chronological order. Note that in some cases I don't have a picture of the actual car I owned, and in that case I'll show you a file picture that's as close as I can come. And no, the list is not complete. I'm intentionally leaving out several miserable cars that I'd rather forget!
OK, first the "real" cars. By that I mean a car that was purchased new or in good condition, and that involved a substantial outlay of cash. You see, living in Illinois I followed the common practice of buying $100 to 2 or $300 "beater" cars to drive in the winter, thus saving whatever muscle car I happened to own at the time the rot and ruin of the salted winter roads. Now some of those beaters were cool cars in and of themselves, and I'll mention a few of them later on. But on with the show...
