Cars I have owned and driven as my car (not husband's)

76 AMC Hornet (not my idea, complicated. Involved my father selling it to me)
73 Audi Fox
76 VW Beetle (not really a super beetle, but possibly brazilian or mexican. not as good as the old ones)
73 VW Squareback (was spouse's when I got the Fox in 78 or 79, totalled in 1990)
73 VW 412 (very obscure car--totalled in 93 when rear ended by cell phone user)
73 Volvo Wagon (never did run, but we had high hopes)
77 Plymouth Volare (wood grained side. Cost ONE DOLLAR, with kleenex/trash caddy included. That lasted longer than the car, which lasted 9 mo.)
73 VW Squareback #2
1980 (I think?) VW Fox.
1979 parts Fox car (sat in yard, canaballized at random)
1980 Mercedes 300D
1979 Mercedes 300D
1972 VW Squareback (still driving. looking for parts to rebuild front end)
1981 Mercedes 300D (being put back together. May run soon. don't know was bought cheaply after it sat for many years.)

I have not listed other vehicles of my husbands, but the one that runs NOW is a 1980 F150 long bed extended cab pickup.
