In order
1970 Chevy 4x4 Custom Camper truck ugly olive green shade.

1980? Honda Civic w/ 1500 cc engine. Tried to climb a rain soaked hill in Seattle and it just spun. Lot of spirit but too light. A bit bigger than the old Minis.

1969 Volkswagon Karmann Ghia Convertible painted pearl white, drove from Virginia to Seattle July 1990 as a cross country trip armed with only a credit card and a AAA card. Chose to drive at night so not to risk overheating the engine during the day for the air cooled 1500cc engine.

1971 Opel - Drove it on the famed autobahn and could hear the rattles and hum.

1965 Fort Mustang with three speed on the floor. Hit 55 mph and RPMs engine/gearing ratio felt way too high.

1991 Mazda Protege.

1980 Toyota with right hand drive... While stationed in Camp Zama Japan.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis edition. Moss green, tan, green leather and red piping on seat trim. What was I thinking.

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan.
