alas, we are cut from the same cloth Roger :)

Before I got "Responsiable" aka married....  It was common for me to a
own a different car every year... we are not talking cool cars, just 
something different!  I love almost all cars, just that kinda guy, it 
kills me to drive something for more than a year....

Lets see the list is something like this....

73 Plymouth Satelite Sebring, 2 door coupe
74 Plymouth Duster, couldn't be killed with that slant 6, believe me I tried!
70 Monte Carlo, grandma's car, 56k, 350/350
72 Monte Carlo SS, 350, parts car for the above :)
Moved out of the house....

74 Vega Wagon, 4 speed
66 VW bus, 4 speed, actually fun to drive :)
66 F85 4 door, 6 cyl,

	beautiful car, my toy...
