I would buy stuff other kids had worked on and screwed up for cheap and fix them and then sell them. For cars Mom would buy a winter beater every fall and the big Olds station wagon would go in the garage for the winter to keep the salt off it. We all shared it whatever the Winter Bomb was. I remember a 71 Maverick, a 60's something covair and several others. Once I left home Dad "loaned" me his 75 Chevy Monza under the pretense that I would fix it up and return it. I fixed it up got drunk and totaled it. Come to find out he planned to give it to me. The first car I actually owned was a 71 Ford 4 door LTD sedan. Was a wedding gift from my older sister. It did not last long. It looked real nice but it spent too many years in the Buffalo salt and the body would shift on the frame when cornering. After that was a 71 Dodge Challenger with the inline 6. It drank oil like gas and I had no place to work on it. Traded it in 82 for a brand new Ford EXP. A fun car but not really appropriate as my Step Son quickly outgrew the back seat area. After the move to Maine in 83 we got a Toyota Tercel Station wagon and a early 70's Toyota SR5 Longbed PU as a second. Sold the Pickup before the cross country to catch a plane for Hawaii in 87. Had that Tercel a long time. Then a older toyota sedan as a second car while in Hawaii. We brought the Tercel back with us, after we returned to Virginia in 90 and then we got a 92 Ford Explorer 2 door. Rusty drove the Tercel station wagon for a work truck until she got T-Boned and then I bought a bare bones Isuzu Pickup for the Wife's work truck. Then traded the Explorer for a Toyota T-100, and bought my Wife's First Wrangler. The T-100 was eventually traded for a Tundra and the Wrangler was replaced with a new Wrangler. The Tundra was replaced with my Current 2010 Dodge Ram and the 2nd Wrangler was replaced with a Nissan Pathfinder that we just Traded last month for a new Wrangler Unlimited.
Feel like I am out of breath from trying to remember all that!!!!
