OK, I have been digging around and seem to have found a few photos of my rides from the past. Not a complete compendium, just some that were noteworthy enough at the time to photograph and worthy enough for me to get them into an album or two. Let's have a look see, no particular order.
1958 VW Beetle (My mother's car, the first car I ever drove)
1984 Mercury Capri RS 5.0L (I owned this car for ever...1984-1990)
1953 Poncho (it's here, I don't know why)
1989 Crown Victoria LX (NoCVPI, We drove this car almost 200K before an AC Delco battery failed and it burned to the ground outside our home):frown: :frown: :frown:
1993 Exploder XLT (CV replacement, beat on for almost 100K miles in 32 months of ownership)
1983 BMW 533i (the only pic I could find, just before I gave to my son)
2009 Mazda Tribute isport (current wife's daily driver)
1971 Mercury Marquis (Yeah, it had the juice)
1982 F-100 XLT (six, slow, and 24 mpg)
1979 Yamaha XS 750 (My favorite scooter)
1980 Ford Fiesta Sport (Another high miler, I think 200K)
1968 Ford Falcon Futura (Mafia Staff Car, everyone drove this car before me, a true hand me down from mother, to brother, his wife, to him, to me) I think of it as the Snow covered Parking Lot Donut King.
2001 Bullitt (What can I say?)

I have no idea where the others photos have gone. Terry Shared with us what he could recollect and recover from his archieves, thought I would also.

Wow David,

My 1989 Grand Marquis "spontaneously combusted" (as I call it) in my driveway as well. It just smoldered under the hood till everything just dripped out through the melted inner fender wells. I wonder if it was the same issue, although I don't remember the type of battery it had.

Well David, the Fire Captain on duty said it was the battery. It burned the entire right front fender (batttery mounted there) into nothing. The driver side was OK, sort of, no burn damage. Fire migrated back on the plastic inner fender liner to the a/c unit and went inside the car. Driver side of the engine was a-ok...:confused:

Cobrat, the Fiesta is one car that I have fond memories of driving places. It was truly cheap transportation, and was like it was built from one piece of metal. Totally solid, even at speed and nearly 100K on the clock. I traded that car for the 82 F-100, and they gave me my original purchase price back for the Fiesta! Wish I could say that for the other cars I have owned.

Nice dude, thanks for sharing.

Not wuite as esoteric as Terry's list, but definately some good iron in there. I like the Falcon best I think (besides the B, that is;)).
