I was 24 and she was 21 in 1980 so you can do the arithmetic and see how old and decrepit we are now if you can't tell by our latest picture...

LOL, no, never went to the drags with it (other than back road ones), it was originally my mother's spare car. The wiring harness went, so I bought it from her before she could junk it. Paid $400 for the car and another $400 to get a new wiring harness installed.

Please list all the cars that you owned in your lifetime. Just wondering if anyone has me beat. So far I counted 40 cars and 10 motorcycle, plus two 4 wheeler in my 42 years. Can anyone topped that?

1994 Mercury Villager
1996 Saab 900s
1995 Saab 900se convertible

2008 Victory Vision Tour Premium (Best Bike Ever)(still own)
2006 BMW 550I (still own)
1983 280zx Turbo (newly acquired)
Folks, the circle has come complete. Yesterday I purchased a 1983 280zx Turbo for the Nostalgic emotional need. I started with one when I started my military career. Wrecked it and always wanted another one. Since I retired in 2008, I've been looking for one. That brings my current owned total to 6 cars 1 bike.
