1979 Mercury Capri
1990 Toyota Camry (DH drives it now)
1996 Toyota Corolla

The Capri was the classic junker--horrible, badly tinted dark windows, with the tinting film peeling/bubbling in places, headlights that occasionally worked, windshield wipers equally finicky. I had to roll down the window to see the driver's side mirror.

My favourite moment from that car...the day the wires from the (non-working) radio set my sister's shoe on fire while she was riding along in the passenger seat. No harm done, just some smoke and a little hole in the edge of her shoe sole. It finally died a few months later, thankfully.

I'm not that young..but I do drive cars 'til they die.
