I wish I had pictures, but I went through A LOT of cars in HS lol. I'd have to say though my favorites were my 91 Geo Storm GSi and my 88 Isuzu I-Mark RS. Although my 83 Chevette was a cool little car too.

When not driving my Mom's '79 Country Squire or my Brother's '67 Falcon, I worked with a friend on a series of cars that included a '74 Capri (still love old Capris), a '71 Bonneville 455 Safari Wagon, and a brief time with "Cthulu, the Battle Pinto".

Glad this sparked so many memories for y'all! ;)

2-door or 4-door? My parents had a 1982 4-door!

NICE! Tho, I prefer the prior generation. ;)


At graduation, '58 Chevy Impala convertible, 348 tri-power.
Oh ... my ... goodness! My Dad had 1 of those, too ... his was red & white!

As with Wings, I found a close example of my first car, the only things missing are the T-Tops and soft top over the back of the roof, color and wheels are identical!



As for your Cutlass, one of my friends had on in silver and we'd race all the time, he had a 350, I had the 400 Pontiac, they were both unbearably slow!!

Oh wow, never saw one of the diesels, mine was the monster 1.6 lol. I had really big plans for that car when I was in high school, just never had the money since was in high school lol.
LOL! My goodness, a "monster" 1.6? How many races did you win!? ;)


Can't believe I have no pictures. Nobody took pictures back then I guess....
A friend & I were JUST talking about this yesterday (Saturday) ... it is amazing how much people snap a photo on a whim these days. We were thinking what a goldmine it'd be if more people took pics like that back in the 50s, 60s, 70s & even 80s...... Can you IMAGINE? OH MY!
