    nova only lasted a couple of weeks, then i drove it in to a tree just for the crack. the recaro seat's that came out of it came in handy for the mk2 golf though.

    that was after we took it in a couple of fields at my dads and then over the local fell. wasn't exactally road worthy after that so then i parked it in a tree, the rear panel was touching the back seat and front struts had gone through the bonnet, had a pic of it but can't find it.

    shoot *sees others lists* im a pack rat. cars usually stay with me and driven until death do us part
    ninenty somthing nissan ultima, twas stolen from me, people never paid

    84-86 (cant remember) ford ranger, 4 cylinder 5 speed, i really miss that and (and also hated it crazy huh?) one my cuz blew a hole in cylinder piston number three and rod dogging it too hard, and it caught fire from the blowing oil

    (sorry if the pic is dark, its the only one i could find

    87 dodge dakota 6 cylinder, burned more oil than gas
    96 chevy lumina, didnt start in the cold

    99 chevy silverado and a 92 cadilac deville (dailys) cadilac misses and hesitates somtimes
    and of course 82 magic rabbit (almost daily)

    seems as though the cars ive owned or driven were in bad shape when i got them now that i look back at it, ecxept my silverado, that was a hammy down from the folks, and its been lasting pretty long, just no radio
    and the cadilacs problems really dont bother me when you're sitting in heated seats and listening to a bose sound system playing raconteurs and the who

    ....but i still love my bunny
