Technically it belonged to my parents, but if it was in the driveway it was "mine" for two summers...

But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

I had several others including '49 and '51 Mercs, a '62 T-Bird, and a '70 Corvette. But I stick by my '56 T-Bird.

It was a "Senior" Bird meaning it was 100% original, and won several car shows. I bought it in '85 for $14,000 as an investment. It paid off, and the investment eventually led to our $76,000 retirement home free and clear in '92. We did okay, but I sure do miss my Bird.

At a Ford dealer's car show in Columbus, OH, in '87...my wife is in the passenger seat...

I wish I still had my Honda Shadow 700.  That bike was nearly new when I got it... ten years old and only 11k on the odometer.

My first car bought with my own money was a 1983 Chevy Malibu. I bought it in 1991.  Sky blue. Small block 8 cylinder. What an amazing car. 4 door, but man it was fast. Bench seats. I still miss that thing. I put a new radio in it, and I thought it was the coolest car in the world.

All things are passing;
God never changes.

God alone suffices.
