70 Duster 340 that I had in the Navy. Unfortunately, it got flooded by a hurricane in Charleston SC when in storage while I was at sea. Got everything emptied out and dried out, but knew the car would rust away in a heartbeat due to the salt on the roads in upstate NY. Now I'm looking for a replacement.

Some vehicles from my childhood come to mind. The first one is the powder blue Ford LTD. It was practically given to my parents by my mother's aunt for absolutely nothing. It was pristine, with very little miles. Before the end of its life, my father hit a deer, which ended up bending the front light headlight in such a way to where it perpetually pointed up into the trees.

Another vehicle they owned was an olive-y green Ford Galaxie, that I referred to as the "old car". It was old, but it was loud and it was fast. Unfortunately - or unfortunately, depending on your point of view - was traded in for a Mustang Cobra.

Then the old, black Chevy Malibu that my grandfather had bought back from the dead. I remember the interior being this creamy, white color. It always had this funny, slightly musty smell - bit it wad fun to take a ride in.

Last, but certainly not least was my grandfather's 1992 Ford F-250. The only reason he bought it was because he got a better deal (he was a Chevy man). He had it custom ordered to his specifications, which included a big 460 underneath the hood.
To add more power to an already powerful engine, he added a street cam for extra power for hauling his trailer. This thing could pass anything on the road.. Except a gas station.

Mine would be a '98 Ford Explorer. Actually I still have it, but it's a worn out piece of junk that's been parked under an oak tree for the last 5 years.
If I could buy a new one just like it, I'd get 2 and store one. It had the 5.0, 4wd and tons of options and it was tough as nails. The ex-wife sheared off a power pole at the ground with it once and drove it home!

For being 27 I've had a load of cars, probably 13-15. One that I really wish I held onto was a '05 SRT-4 only year of the burnt orange colour. I had it when I was 19 (8 years ago, wow do I feel old). Did some tasteful mods was a high 12 second car on drag radials. Sold it with 39,000kms on it roughly 25miles. All these cars have been beaten to shit now.
