Cars I Have Owned

My first Concert - White Zombie

The first concert I can remember (my folks say I've been to earlier ones) was White Zombie, with Ramones (on one of their farewell tours), and the Vandals.

My 1995 Dodge Neon (Green)

This was by far one of my favorite cars.

I was living upstate NY at the time, and finally got my license back: I needed a ride.  I had been looking around and I think it was my good friend Tom Falco who found the car online at Colonie (sp?) Chevrolet.  It was $10k, which was my biggest asset to date and the most I had ever financed before...  Anxiety!

My 1986 Chevrolet Cavalier (4-door)(Blue)

I remember buying this car used from Ann Street Auto Sales in GR.  Ironically, it ended up not too far away at Russ & Ron's Auto Services.  

My 2009 Chevrolet Silverado (Crew Cab)(Blue)

This is the first brand new vehicle i have ever owned. it had less than 50 miles on it when i bought it December 28, 2010. we went with the full-size pickup as it was getting kind of hard fitting a family of five in the S-10. the girls had a big hand in deciding which truck we bought and with what accessories. after looking around for a while, i chose the chevy based on fuel economy. while i was settling on the specific truck, we brought the girls out to test.

My 1986 Chevrolet Cavalier (station wagon)(Blue)

 This was my first car, inherited from my mother.

I remember one night, working late at Perkins, Jeremy Wheater and I decided to race home.  It was approximately an 11 mile stretch back to Sparta from the restaurant.  I had my '86 Blue Chevy Cavalier Station Wagon, and he had his '86 Blue Chevy Cavalier.  It was an nice, even matchup.  We took off at the same time.  He got stopped by all red lights.  I got stopped by blue and red lights -- the cops again!

My 1995 Chevrolet S-10 (Extended Cab)

 After the Grand Am, we were on the hunt for a car yet again.  Lisa had always said every family needs a pickup; probably because her father always had one, so we went shopping for a pickup.  We settled on the S-10, bought for $8k from a guy in Ocean Lakes.

My 1998 Pontiac Grand Am

This was my interim vehicle since the neon crash and it performed acceptable in this capacity.

My 1977 Pontiac Bonneville

As a joke, my mother put a $100 bid on this car at an auction. Nobody outbid her, so we paid the $15 auction fee and it became my next pride and joy. It was an awesome beast of a machine: a 311 V8, solid metal "do not get i front of me because i will crush you" beast. good heat for the Michigan winters, power windows for the summer, and a couch for a back seat big enough for six of your best friends.
