1st - 1977 F150 long bed stick shift, big V-8. I could actually get up in the engine compartment to help step-dad work on her (mable).
2nd - 1968 VW Bug, still my favorite car. My current car is a 2006 VW bug.

1 - Learned to drive in Mom's '64 Impala 4-dr. 283 V8.
2 - Favorite is probably my 1972 Firebird Formula. Fast, fun, comfortable and those big, non-functional hood scoops were to die for.
Wish I still had it.

Good grief...that would be an old '51 cheby...bought it for $21.00 from a guy that needed bail money...that's all I had. Three on the tree and had a suicide knob on the wheel with a naked woman's picture inside it...good thing too, cause you had to hold up the headliner with the other, used 3 qts of bulk oil a day. Darn thing wouldn't die. Bunch of us would take it out in the woods and knock down small trees with it and jump small irrigation ditches with it. Dukes of Hazard stupid stuff! Finally we ran it through two trees backward with all the doors open. Couldn't get it started and had to pay a guy to tow it to the junk yard.
Best would have to be the '92 Honda Accord 2dr., 5spd. I loved that car. No troubles whatsoever in the 14 years I drove it, good gas MPG and the thing was a little sports car with a rear seat. Perfect car for me at the time and I'd STILL be driving it had a guy not pulled out in front of me...that HURT! I have to admit, this Wrangler we tow is a BLAST and comes in a little ahead in the fun dept.! Bob

English Ford Station Wagon I had was towable, Considering it's part-interchangable with a PINTO, it was a good car. I liked it, I've had "Better" cars, but if I could have my choice of towed,

It would be a Jeep
Home is where I park it!
