More old pics of the Z28 and others

So this was probably a day or so after I bought it and I took it over to my parents for photos. For some reason I didn't look very happy. hahahahaha!

What's interesting about this next one was that many years later I ultimately ended up driving that GMC Jimmy that was parked in front of the Camaro in the photo. When I got the Jimmy from my Dad (for painting his house) it had about 75000 miles on it. I ended up putting about 70000 miles on it myself before it got ruined during Hurricane Ike.

I wish I had more pictures of this car at my house, but I have no idea where they would be. This was my 1988 Cutlass (it was a hand me down from parents). This was taken during college when I drove it in the mid 90s.

Yes, for one year I was the proud owner of a brand 1997 Thunderbird LX 4.6L. That car was actually really nice when it ran. I had it back at the Ford dealer so much that I think I drove Taurus rental cars that year more than I drove it! I ultimately traded it in on the Camaro.

The Camaro on my awesome road trip from the fall of 99. On the way back down into Texas I drove straight down I-25 and stopped off at Truth or Consequences, NM to take a break.

I'm surprised I even had this photo in the box of huge mismanaged photos that I have. This was my folks 1986 Pontiac Parisienne that they bought brand new in 1986. I drove it for one year in high school (11th grade I think). It was a Brougham with wire wheel covers, fender skirts, etc, etc...I believe it was fully loaded. I want to say it was also ordered with an optional heavy duty radiator and a better gear for towing, but I'm not sure. Some of you Pontiac fans may be able to tell me if that was even available, but I remember thinking that car had it. It was actually a pretty fast car believe it or not.

I thought I'd throw this one in for fun. It was my Mom's car. My parents bought it brand new in the summer of 1992 while I was still in high school. Needless to say I was very jealous. It was a 5.0L V8, but it was only an RS. I remember being a little baffled that my Dad didn't get the 92 Z28 Convertible (still a 5.0L) but with the better injection system (the 5.7L was not available in the Convertible that year).

I can't quite tell ... is that blue interior?

If so ... I had a friend in college in the mid-1990s who had one just about exactly like that. He had had a brown '78 or '79 Cutlass ... that literally died on him. So, he picked up a white w/blue interior '88 Cutlass ... awesome car.
