    hmm... let's see how many are still showing on the flickr account...

    Can see the Leaf, Stang, and minivan behind the Benz.

    Here is the Volvo, the only current ride missing from the pic above.

    The brief time I was brave enough to own 2 BMWs at the same time.

    Some autocross pics with the two '80s sportscars I attempted to make go fast.

    My first autocross car

    And my best autocross car

    '17 F150 Crew 2.7; '67 Coronet R/T; '14 Town&Country Limited; '09 LR2 HSE. 44-car history and counting!

    xwesx, just need a rocket box or canoe on top to be perfect. :)

    LOL, Steve! We made a very conscious effort to not put anything on top this time. The tray results in no fuel economy penalty, but a box on top murders mileage. I think our final economy on that trip was around 28mpg... ? I know from experience that it would have been about 22-23 with something on top. That's a huge cost spread over 12.5K miles.

    Are you going to restore the Pinto? Part of me kind of likes the look of Pinto wagons. They might be a little more appreciated in the future. A labor of love, but not the worst car ever made. Was that one bought new by your mother?

    "Restore" is a little strong, most likely. I'm planning to put a 302 V8 in it and heavily mod the rest of the drivetrain, so I'll probably do a light "resto-mod" on it, keeping most of the interior intact (unless vermin have gone through it in the sixteen years it has sat in that quonset hut). I'll definitely remove the "woody" look to it and repaint. Honestly, though, I haven't looked closely at it in over a decade (it was nearly pitch black in there when I took that photo, so I didn't really even get to look at it in person). It may be that this "rust-free" car is not so rust free any longer. I hope not, because it is relatively dry in there (and a dry climate in northeastern Oregon), but who knows?

    And, no, my mother bought it in 1988. All-in-all, it was one of the more practical vehicles she ever bought (as a mother with three children). But, even though it is a wagon, it is still a two-door. I can't think of a single car she ever owned while I was growing up that had more than two doors. It was a manual tranny when she bought it, but she had it swapped out to an automatic because her roommate hated manuals. I plan to swap it back. Overall, I want this car to be a true sleeper that I can enjoy taking on Sunday drives.

    Loving all these great photos! I need to post a few of my own rides, but finding those photos will take some effort. :'(

    I know how you feel! I have four other vehicles (all that I currently own) of which I have not yet posted a photo because I have nothing relatively current. I'm sure I could hit the archives....

    Westen and Zoomie - daughter's 2010 MINI Cooper and the wife's 2010 Mazda CX-7. The MINI was recently traded in for another MINI - this time a Countryman S ALL4, named "Beckham".

    I need to get a photo of Beckham with a camera, not my phone.

    Probably some obscure glitch.

    I'm not sure if this is consistent for others, but the photos right themselves in "full screen mode" if I click on the photo link at the bottom of the post.

    This is my son's '95 Mustang - I think it's got over 150K on it now.

    Behind it is my dad's '70 Chevy C-10, which he's owned since new.

    I thought I had one somewhere. Good news is that I'll be in CA week after next and I'll get a fresh one to post.
