Since I took pics of pics of my family's wrecked vehicles... took some of non-wrecked ones, too. :P

Again, our 00 Grand Am SE wrecked:

BTW, please excuse me as a baby... Those are the only pics I have of these vehicles. :P Also excuse the poor quality. I don't have a scanner as you know... So I have to take pictures of pictures with my digicam and as you also know, my digicam sucks. :D

Here's my 84 Cutlass Supreme Brougham coupe, photographed at a turn-out in the American River Canyon in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in Northern California. I actually kept it concurrently with my Regal for 5 years...to keep the miles off the Regal.

I loved this car. It was a lot more pleasant and nimble to drive than the larger Cutlass Supreme that preceded it.

Incidentally, Vipes, that 8-? Cutlass you show is most likely a 78 or 79. It could be an 80, but I doubt it. Also, what happened to that 89 Regal? Does your family still have it?

Yeah, I thought about that and even looked in my American Car encyclopedia (I suck at spelling), but due to the poor pics I have, I couldn't decide what year it was. Since there were more years in the 80s for that Cutlass, I just went with 80s something. :P

As for the Regal... After it hit its third deer, it got parked. Sat in our driveway for a few years afterwards. Then my uncle decided to buy it off my dad and they fixed it with junk yard parts and used a mighty fine sledge hammer to beat out dents. That was... before we had the 00 GA, I believe, so approx 6 or 7 years ago. My uncle drove it for a while, but eventually brought it back to Brookville and sold it. Every once in a while I would see it, but it's been a fews years since the last time I have.

Here's the only pic I've been able to find of my dad's '86 Cutlass Supreme. It was a beautiful car with midnight blue paint that was destroyed in the Flood of 1993. There's a good chance I could have been driving it if it hadn't been in the flood, because we got our 1990 Lumina after that.

This was about 1989 or 1990. Yes, I had a mini-mullet back then. :lol:

The car I had before my Achieva was an 88 LeBarron Coupe.. I have no pictures and I'm glad I don't since I'd rather not remember how horriable of a car it was. On the plus side it was loaded with leather and power everything, but that's the only + factor I can thing on it.

Lol, maybe...I was a mischievous little fellow back then. :)

On a side note, a few years ago I found the "Oldsmobile" lettering that came from the back of that Cutlass. My dad must've pulled it off as a souvenir before the car was sent to the junkyard.

You know... I just noticed that you kind of look like me when I was young. I keep looking at it and I swear it does. Haha... Weird. :D

That reminds me, I still have the stand-up elblem from the 89 Regal since my dad didn't put it back on after it hit its first deer. :P

*grins devilishly*

Right before my parents traded in their ("my") 1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in 1984, Dad took off all 4 hubcaps and gave 'em to me. When the dealership asked what happened to them, Dad replied that he did not know ... they had just suddenly disappeared ... he he he.

I still have those hubcaps ... sitting along one of my bedroom walls :).

Lookin' tough with my junkyard sunglasses and my failed inspection sticker.

Shortly after those Sears whitewalls became defective (belts shifted far enough to close some of the tread grooves)- I put fat blackwalls and 'cop caps' on the Plymouth. Looked every bit like an undercover cop car: when I first brought it to my regular junkyard haunt and walked into the office, it was strangely empty. 3-4 guys had ducked for cover thinking the feds had arrived.

Our old '79 LeSabre Limited coupe.

1991-2005. She's somewhere in big Buick heaven now, bragging about her youthful 65,000 miles and kickass Museum of Science and Industry stickers I put all over her roof. RIP, girl.

I'd have to scan photos of our '87 Toronado previous to that boat and the '98 Regal GS we had for two years. I also have a picture of a ca-ca brown diesel Olds my father bought new because he worked in the power generation industry and this was gonna be the next big thing. I remember one thing about it and that's that it smelled like ass.

Balthazar:

Awsome!!!!!!!!!!!

If you want to relive the past there's a lady in Chelmsford Mass selling a '78 Plymouth Volaire (low miles!) for chump chage.

$9995 to be exact.

You can laugh now, but I'm being 100% serious. Ask XP! :mind-blowing:

Balthy, you need to go to a casting call for a "Starsky and Hutch" remake.

That must be south/central NJ because it looks too new (not enough trees) compared to Teaneck where I went to the 4th grade before my Dad longed for the palm trees and moved us back to LA-LA-land.

You guys have all seen this car before... probably in flat black since I painted her flat black the spring after this photo was taken. It only cost me $7.00 worth of Wal*Mart paint.

I miss this old tank. I bought this 1983 (last year of Mass emissions exempt!) Pontiac Firebird for $500 wiht 180-something thousand miles.

It had a GM crate 350... truck 350. :)

Thsi night of the Worcester Summer Nationals I painted $700 O.B.O. on the rear window and sold her for $500. Later when the kid tok delivery of the car I installed better, nicer 25th Anniversary Camaro seats in place of the super-worn out $h!ty ones that were in it... so the price went up to $700 and he was happy as a clam.

My 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham, now in Vermont

I'll post some others later.

It was a good car at the time and I have some good memories with it & in it... but no thanks.

>>"That must be south/central NJ because it looks too new..."<<

Right you are: north Mercer County NJ. It was new then, doesn't look so new anymore...

I haven't gotten over to Teaneck as of yet...

Don;t blame you... when XP told me 9995 I burst out laughing. In concourse D'Elegance condition wiht the factory plastic still on the seats and 00,003 miles on the odometer I think $995 would be realistic. This old bat must have been spending too much time watching Barett Jackson. :P

I love that shade of bronze BTW.

That would be my first car from high school. A '90 Dodge Spirit ES.

Gosh that was a lot of fun to drive. Turbo'ed with a 5 speed. Heh I blew the head gasket once racing some kid I went to school with. My dad said "the car smells funny," then he opened the hood... "ok there is oil all over the engine compartment" Um....whoops?

It's on a trailer in that pic because driving home from college one year, the bearings totally ceased on one wheel. The dealership said "yea youre pretty lucky, the only thing holding the wheel on was the brake assembly."

.....and the '90 Dodge Spirit ES was followed by a '97 Ford Explorer XLT. Not a bad car, but not a great one either. Taking it off-road was fun though. Man doesn't the front bumper look weird? Chrome sandwiched in plastic??

You know that sandwiched chrome is a hint of the 2007 Lincoln Navigator now...
