This is going to be an interesting exercise, as I don't believe I've ever assembled a collection of my wheels during my life. But here we go, in order of year of production:
"Radio Super" Radio Flyer Wagon
1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe
1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 4-Door Sedan
Porsche 356A Speedster 1600-S
1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe
1958 Ford Country
Squire Sedan 9-Passenger
1964 Dodge 1/2 Ton Pickup
BSA Thunderbolt A651T 654 cc Twin Motorcycle
Triumph Bonneville Speedster 650 cc Twin Motorcycle (Restoration)
Opel Kadett 2-Dr Sedan
Opel Kadett Rallye 2-Dr Notchback
1972 Chevrolet Vega Wagon
1977 Chevrolet Vega GT Wagon
1977 Pontiac Catalina 4-Door Sedan
1981 Mercedes Benz 240D (Diesel)
1982 Subaru 4WD Wagon
1987 Subaru 2WD Turbo Wagon GL
1988 Plymouth Voyager SE
Toyota 4Runner 4WD Wagon
Kind of a mixed bag, isn't it?
All-Time Favorites? The '55--'57 Chevy's, the '56 Speedster, the '65 Beezer, the Opel Kadett Rallye Notchback, the M-B 240D, the 320i, and the 4Runner.
Sentimental favorites? The
'77 Vega Wagon, the Subarus, the Catalina, and the Voyager. Go figure. These were basic family cars, but there were a lot of memories tied up in them.
And the heartbreakers? They'd have to be the '56 Chevy, the 320i, and '88 Voyager.
The '56 Chevy was my first car, I restored it from end to end, only to have it end up abandoned and stripped from stem to stern on a lonely Arizona highway. I'd sold it to a neighbor kid, and after stiffing me for the $500 he still owed me on it, he disappeared with it. I only found out what happened, because I still held the title and registration for it.
The BMW 320i was going to be a restoration. Had great hopes for it until I found out the whole back end suspension system had rusted through. It disappeared into the morass of my third divorce.
And of course the 1988 Voyager. So clean when I first bought it, it took me on two years of camping trips with my kids, but it blew two engines and was hit 3 times in accidents. It never bounced back. Its got 240,000 miles on it now and its about to be retired for good. R.I.P.
