Here is the best that I can remember. Still have a lot of the spare keys to these cars. Of course a lot of them are stored in the barn as well awaiting my winning lotto to get enough money to put them back on the road.

1953 Chevy 150 2 dr sdn w/ 409 BW 4 speed used and abused, and finally abandoned as unfixable.

1967 RS/SS Blue with custom interior console and gauge package Camaro L-88 427 with Tunnel ram 5.38 gears Muncie. This was a Baldwin Motion Phase III car with a Dick Yenko professionally built motor using a Yenko high nickel content block with Yenko cast above the timing cover.

The list is too long, and I still own most of them, but here is what started it all. In case you can't tell from the jacket and shoes, this pic was taken in the late 80s. I was 15, and this was the first car for me. A 1956 Nash Metropolitan. Car two came a year later, a 1971 Pontiac Parisienne. Still have that one. The Nash, not so much...

Flat Head Six or a flat head four banger in that beast?

My neighbor and owner of the towns only proane retailer (and the father of two lovely daughters) had a light green one he drove 8 miles a day six days a week for thirty years until he sold the company and retired.

OHV 4. Same engine as an Austin A40. Had a three on the dash (!) trans. The trans was really a four speed, but one gear was blocked out for the North American market because "customers were used to three speeds".

Cool Hmmm...

Hey guys I just turned 25 but I've had/still have, my fair share... I'll go by car years to make it easier on my brain
  1. 1967 Impala 2dr-Purple, rebuily 327(mother nature ate all but the engine/trans) so scrapped '09.
  2. 1968 Impala coupe-Primer, no motor or trans when I got it and the city towed it away for me(without letting me know first lol) '05
  3. 1968 Impala fastback (still have)-Royal blue, 327/400th 12 bolt, 327 is out (blown head gasket ''07) and rebuilt 350/350th from '67 Impala is in now.
  4. 1968 Impala SS (still have)-Green, I picked up December 10th 2009 from a buddy. Has a 327 275hp (not original) and 400trans. Now I have a built LS6 from a 2002 ZO6 Vette for it.
  5. 1970 El Camino (still have)-Gold, picked it up Spring '09. Has a 307/powerglide with a 12 bolt factory (weird huh?) currently but just picked up a hot 350/350trans combo for it that's going in November '10.
  6. 1970 El Camino (still have)-Light blue, has a 350 four bolt/350 trans combo that basically fell in my lap two weeks ago October 12th '10 for $500, and drove it home.
  7. 1971 Chevelle (still have)-Was charcoal colored, now is has primer/charcoal. Has a mildly built 350/350trans I picked up summer '06. I had to break it out of paint prison '07 and it's still under a tarp. Can't bare to look at it in the eyes(headlights) now
  8. 1971 Impala convertible (gave to my best friend Ebony X-mas '09)- Teal, no motor/trans but she wants to put a 454 in it this winter.
  9. 1972 Chevelle (still have)-Primer, picked up '07 for a buddy but he never repaid me so guess what, I Kept It and he still bugs me about buying it from me now. No drive train when I bought it but I picked up a 300hp 402/400trans from a '71 Cheyenne that'll be going in this Winter '10.
  10. 1972 Caprice (sold Summer '08)-Gold, had a 400sbc and 400trans and was soo clean I still regret selling it, at least until I finish the '73 caprice convt I bought with the money.
  11. 1972 Impala 2dr (sold Summer '08)-Brown, 400sbc and 350trans burned rubber at every light!
  12. 1972 Impala convertible (picking up Novermber '10)-Gold, 350/350trans.
  13. 1972 Cutlass S (still have)-Primer, bought September '10 as a birthday present for myself. Has 350 rocket/350 trans but will be getting a 455 soon with buckets and console conversion.
  14. 1973 Impala 2dr (sold Summer '05)-White/navy vinyl top 350/350trans with posi!
  15. 1973 Impala 2dr (still have)-Silver/black vinyl top, picked up Spring '10, 350/350trans.
  16. 1973 Caprice convertible (still have)-Primer, also a refugee from paint prison. Picked up Summer '08 with the money from '72 caprice sell. 454/400trans getting put in this Winter '10.
  17. 1973 Caprice convertible (still have)-Red no motor or trans right now because I originally bought it sight unseen for a parts car but it's too solid to cut up so...
  18. 1974 Caprice 2dr (still have)-Burgandy with nice original burgandy interior, 400sbc/400trans no rust!!! Getting painted black this Winter '10.
  19. 1975 Impala 2dr (gave its life for me Summer '07)- Royal blue, 400sbc/350trans was rear-ended at 50mph while I was at a dead stop on the freeway in traffic, but I'm still here
  20. 1983 Monte Carlo (sold '04 after i found out what a V-6 was/wasn't lol!)- hated this car but needed wheels to get around, ended up selling it to a friend who somehow burned it to the ground
Wheew... I've had a lot more cars than I had thought before I sat down a wrote that list haha! and I am working a deal to get two more of my dream cars: 1968 Plymouth GTX with the 440 super commando/4 speed and Dana rear that's been sitting in a car port since I was 3 years old, and a '69 camaro with a 327. I guess Im too young to have a midlife crisis so i'll just call all of this a Quarterlife Crisis

It was Hell, New House, Baby on the way and was on Federal Grant Employment at the University of Nebraska....which ended abruptly. That f word 4 banger sure could scoot on the icee roads, got her from 0-60 real quick and only moved a foot. Found my true love of V-8 Chevy owning that one.

Wow! Impressive! I've had over 100+ cars, as my best bud's dad used to own a Dodge dealership - and we often traded 'back-lot-bargains' back and forth from one week to another in the 70's and 80's. Some cars I had for a summer, some I've had for only a few hours! So I'll stick with my Chevies, for the sake of saving space:

1965 Impala Coupe - Black over White 283 (2nd car back in '76)
1967 Impala Sedan - Tan / Tan 283 beater
1960 Impala Sport Sdn - White over Teal 283/Turboglide ( i wish I never sold it! )
1966 Impala SS - Black over Blue 396 4-speed (blew it up racing. Ugh!)
1967 Impala Coupe - Burgundy (had it for about 4 hours - friend liked it more!! )
1972 Impala Convert. - Brown metallic --> later painted Baretta purple. Loved it !
1989 Caprice Classic - White/White (it's for sale!) One of my faves. 305 f.i. / auto.
1963 Impala Sedan - was Palomar Red - currently Azure Aqua. My weekend ride

Other Notable Rides:
1974 Nova SS hatchback - my 1st car payment.. bought it in 11th grade - had it 'til '90
1975 Chevy Laguna - Orange (old geezer client GAVE it to me when his wife died)
1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass - 350 HiPerf. - the prettiest car I ever owned. Fast as ballz !!
1971 Olds Cutlass 442 - A total slug. I hated it, and sold it after 1 summer.
1972 Olds Cutlass Cpe. - Tan/Brown. my summer beater for 1982
1987 Camaro RS - a total P.O.S. that I bought new and had 18 months before trading it in. I vowed never to buy another one (new).

'63 Impala Sedan
