View Full Version : My Old Whips

Started out with an 83 Ford Fairmont Futura. 3.3L I-6, 3-speed Auto, RWD. The Mustang was based on this car until the last version. Glad my first car was RWD, because it taught me a lot about how to drive properly in the snow.

Before tree repair.


After tree:


1985 Dodge Ram 50 - Made by Mitsubishi. First 5MT, first 4WD. 2.6L I-4, iron block (bad rings), aluminum head (cracked), craptastic carburetor.


1989 Dodge Ram 50 (to the left of the GTI) - See above. Identical specs except for newer body style and 3AT with OD.


1991 Geo Storm - Great car after the trucks. 1.6L SOHC I-6, 5MT. Light and reliable car, Was red, but dinged it up into a Cavalier and got it repainted. Kept running long after I sold it to a friend.


Also owned:

1981 Yamaha XS650SH
1998 Yamaha XV1100
2000 Honda Shadow Aero 1100
