I have a Ford Falcon wagon which I love cause its the newest car I've ever owned (its a 2001 model and we have had it nearly 2 yrs) I like powerful cars and ones with plenty of room.
My first car was my real love. She was a 1965 Chrysler Valiant and was older than me!! She had personality and space to spare, her name was Vera and everyone knew her cause she was very distinctive, people would say to me " Saw Vera yesterday at the shops" or things like that. We used to drive to school in her in Year 12, lots of good memories.
I love big old American cars.

My Buick Regal has been a wonderful car and I certainly wish they still made them. It is comfortable, the right size, handles well and goes when I get ready. Hope it lasts forever.

I love our Kia Sorento. It is such a comfortable vehicle and drives very well. I never thought I would have liked a Kia, but boy was I wrong.

I am not crazy about our Toyota Corolla anymore. It is a good car and we have not had any major problems with it, but it does not have any personality and it not really fun to drive. It is a very reliable car though and does the job it is supposed to so for that I am thankful.

I'm a Jeep owner three times over. Never going back to a regular car. HH's F150 is nice too, but a beast to park.

Here's what my baby looks like.
She's the best car I've owned.

I have driven mostly Fords: 1993 Ranger, 1995 F-150, and 1999 Explorer. My current car is an Explorer. I love it. It handles well in the snow. I can carry all kinds of stuff in it. The vehicle I miss the most is my Ranger. It was fun, but not that practical.



My work truck is a 2002 Chevy Silverado. It rides like a dream. Of all the work trucks that I have had it handles the best.

I have a Chevy Impala and I really like it!
But, I dream of having a Chevy Colorado. I've always
wanted a pickup.
