1991 Mustang 5.0 LX Coupe. Original paint was dark shadow grey, bought it with a silver metallic paint job. Had a built bottom end, Ford Racing Cam, cobra intake manifold, Short ram intake, shorty headers, flowmaster exhaust, no cats (LOUD), Traction Lock that was starting to wear, 3.73 gears, auto tranny with wearing shift kit, and my dad at that time was using TWEAKER software to tune, so it had raised timing and optimized fueling for the raised timing. Best it ran at the track was a 13.9. The auto tranny killed the power on it, but other than that it was an awesome car to drive.

1991 Ford Taurus wagon (it ran great until the passenger motor mount broke, failed the inspection because of it, and now the gas mileage is very low, like 15mpg hwy probably because of it. It now has around 160,000 miles and never drove it since last September '05 when I got my '04 Focus ZX3.

Most recent at the top:
1988 BMW 528E-awesome ride and handling and the straight 6 ran amazing but it was old and my dad got it at an auction for like 800 dollars, it wasnt exactly a gem. I used it for the summer put some new brakes on the front and some minor other stuff and my dad sold it for 1200
1995 Lincoln Continental-it was my moms old car, got it since the truck below was an unreliable pos. My lil brother got it after me once i moved out to college....he backed it into a trailor with a dovetail thinking he was in drive instead of reverse and it tore the side of it like a can opener....and he got a 98 mustang gt with magnaflow exhaust a different rear end (something to help out with drags, i dont know what kind) out of it...
1984 Ford F-150-Even though this thing wouldnt start half the time, would bog down unless warmed up for like 10 minutes (carbs) and had only front breaks that actually worked...this thing was a blast to drive. The dual exhausts and the 302 let everyone know that I was comin, it sounded so bad ass! Actually my dad bought it for his mowing crew because he owns a landscaping company and he didnt think it was reliable enough for his mowing crew to use so guess what....he gave it to me lol

1993 Red Intega LS with a GSR engine swap onto an auto tranny. It was done before I bought the car. She was my true first love. Then I totaled here by hitting the gas instead of the brake. Then I got my ZX3. Whom I like to call Elinore. Ya ya ya I know, but she will do untill I get a real Elinore.

Before my Focus, I drove a 2002 Mazda Protege5; automatic, ran into some transmission and after-market suspension problems, along with the factory-installed catback leaking.... I loved that car.

Before that, I drove a 1990 Mercury Topaz GS.
