    Another thread got me thinking so I dug out some photos of my automotive past and took pics of them to share with you all. Out of the 14 vehicles I have owned, the 1986 Camaro, and the 2001 Tacoma I have now are the only ones I bought brand new. By the way- as you can see in the pics of the '86 Camaro and the Malibu, I was "blacking out" rims and having custom dual exhaust hung on my cars before a lot of you were born:D getting older is always a shocker!
    Let's see all your "cars gone by" pics DIG 'EM UP!!

    Thanks Chris-I was proud of that truck-but it had an anemic 305v8 which should've been a 350. But it sounded good with the flows I had then:)

    2005 Mazda MPV. Served its purpose at the time and had the creature comforts :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    2006 Ford F-250 Lariat 4x4 Powerstroke Diesel Ended up making 495RWHP and 795 Ft lbs of Tq :eek: It was an amazing truck

    [​IMG]

    2007 Toyota Prius Touring Package #6 Fully Loaded and 45mpg what can I say it was a great commuter :D

    [​IMG]
    My favorite car of all time. My 1993 Mazda RX-7 R1 FD3S I had and built it over 10 years. We had great time together but eventually she had to go. She now has a great home and will soon be making close to 500 RWHP :(:(:(

    There's more but these are the ones i have pictures of.

    Honorable mentions that didn't make the picture list

    1988 Honda Civic (indestructible 35 MPG while burning a quart of oil a week)
    1980 Mazda RX-7 (Bone stock and so much fun to drive)
    1967 Ford Mustang (project car but it had to go)
    1989 Toyota Tercel another great commuter
    1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse my first new car @ 18 y.o (took a beating and kept on ticking)

    Yes i do get bored of cars very easily. There's is more but all I can remember for now.

    Got some really bad cars on my list. Not actual photos of my personal vehicle, just representations. Colors are all correct though.

    Got some real crap in here. Been about a 10 year span.

    Car 1. 93 Dodge Spirit (Very first car) I killed this car. Took a pretty good ramp at about 40 MPH and bashed a hole in the tranny pan, I knew I was getting a new truck the next day.
    [​IMG]

    Car 2. 98 S10. 18th Birthday (My dad felt bad for making me work my ass off to save money for my first car. Told me, I could get what I wanted. He ended winning the auction on the Spirit, $600. I had $2400 saved, I was pissed. So much for picking out my first car.)

    [​IMG]

    Car 3. Tarus Wagon. Then some bad stuff happened and I lost the S10 and I was driving this for a few months.

    [​IMG]


    Car 4. 91 Dodge Spirit. Then I lost my license for a good number of years but I still drove anyways. For like 3 years. My girl and I drove, OMG, the dreaded Dodge Spirit again and amazingly, my dad had a hand in this POS as well.

    [​IMG]

    Car #5. Then we finally got rid of the Spirit. We got a Suzuki Reno, I know, not a great choice but when you're sitting there and the sales guy says "Do you want to drive home in that (points to Spirit) or you can drive home in this (points to Reno)....I mean....I can't faulted to much. Reno has been a decent car so far. Still have it, wife drives it, she wants a honda.

    [​IMG]

    Car #6. Then I got a 01 Blazer cause we had a baby on the way and we now needed 2 vehicle.

    [​IMG]

    Car #7. MY TACOMA!!!!!!!!!

    Got rid of that "about to become a giant money pit blazer" and finally, finally, got a vehile I wanted, have longed for, drooled over, oogled.

    Just check my build thread for Pics.

    Even to this day, I'm still salty about the spirits. The first one blew up not 20 minutes after taking it off the auction lot and it had continual problems for 2 years after that. Then he went and got another one...Not a jackass enough though to not be thankful for the cars, especially the 2nd Spirit, we needed that car and had no money.

    Im only 23, so i have only had one other truck but here it is. I sold it when i turned 18 and bought my 05 Taco, on of the first ones they had out there.

    Here is my 98 z71. skyjacker 6in lift and 35's. That truck was actually a beast, had hooker headers and no cat's into flowmaster 10 series mufflers. The baddest sounding truck in high school.

    I don't have pictures of most of my cars, but I'm on my third Tacoma. First one 1995.
    [​IMG]
    It was the 4 cyl., 5 speed base model, manual hubs. I put about 80,000 miles on it in 2 years and traded it in for a 1997 with a V-6, 5 speed and a few more options.
    [​IMG]
    I kept that one for 11 years, put about 200,000 miles on it. Toyota condemned it in 2008 for frame rot and bought it back, so I got a 2008. Probably not done with Tacoma's yet, but I plan on keeping this one a while.
