#1 '63 Impala Super Sport 327 Powerglide
2 '63 Chevy Biscayne 4 dr sedan, 6 cyl, 3 spd manual
'70 Ford Galaxie 500
'76 Olds Omega SX
'84 Buick Skylark T-Type
'88 Buick LeSabre T-Type (probably my Favorite)
'91 Buick Regal GS sedan
'96 Chevy Blazer LS (wife mostly drove it, but we bought it after we were married, so I guess that makes it communal property)
'01 Buick Regal LS (still own, wife primary driver now)
'02 (?) Chevy Trailblazer (got rid of it after a year. Bought it for the wife, she decided to hijack my Regal so we could buy:
'03 Chevy S10 pickup extended cab ZR2 (my current ride)

cycles:
'75 Kawasaki 400cc triple 2 stroke
'75 Kawasaki 750cc triple 2 stroke (Mach IV)(sold it to buy SOMEBODY an engagement ring)(sure do miss that bike sometimes)
'87 BMW K75S
http://www.bmwmotorcycles.com/heritage_1986.html

(makes up for the missing Kawi somewhat. I owned the Beemer before I met my wife, owned both of the 750's for quite awhile. The Beemer does everything well, so I definitely sold the right one, but that Kawi was really a blast to drive at times)(all 3 of the bikes I've owned are 3 cylinder models, never owned anything else)

This might be a suitable replacement for the K75S:

PS Oh! I also own a '62 Austin Healey Sprite, it's in pieces though.

Mine are in order of when I owned them. The dates are when I owned the car, and following that is the reason why I got rid of them.

1. 1974 Volkswagen Bug (April '98 - July '98) (catastrophic engine failure)
2. 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle (August '98 - May '99) (nickel & dimed me to death)
3. 1980 International-Harvester Scout II (April '99 - October 2000) (catastrophic engine failure)
4. 1984 Ford E-350 (October '00 - July '02) (inherited F-250; couldn't afford two commercial vehicles)
5. 1984 Ford F-250 (May '01 - present)
6. 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D (July '02 - present)

Oh yeah, everything except for the Bug and the Chevy were/are diesel-powered.

Thanks. Yea especially that 56 chrysler. The 57 220S was also a nice car exept it rusted away.
that 67 chrysler 300 of yours sounds like nice one too. I always wanted a 300. I came within a whisker of buying a 61 300G hdt with the great 413 wedge engine. I used to be real soft in the head for Chrysler products.
The one I really pine for is the 56 300SL gullwing I almost bought for $6000.00 back in 1976. I just did'nt have quite enough money at the time.

I forgot to add:
70 toronadoGT
74 dodge dart swinger
66 dodge dart wagon
five /6 BMW motorbikes
and three small airplanes
