(1) 1979 Oldsmobile Starfire
(I think I may be the only person who ever owned one.)

(2) 1989 Ford Probe - I still miss this car

(3) 2001 Honda Accord

and I've been driving since 1983!


My favorite moment with the Starfire:

Attempting to drive across the George Washington bridge in NYC on a sunny Friday afternoon during rush hour. About half way across the bridge, the car catches on fire and we have to pull off to the side of the bridge, thereby causing a five mile backup as people are headed out for the weekend!

As acrid smoke caused tears to immediately start streaming out of my eyes (now that is a weird experience!)... I heard the traffic helicopter for a local station report the following on the radio: "We've got a coupla bozos stuck on the bridge and man, they got a lotta people pi$$ed off!".
