This was taken in August 2001 in Canton, Michigan. I am not sure
if I ever owned this car. I am joking.
I had thought of putting these car photos up for years. There was no big
reason I did not put them up. I just didn't. This is a Datsun 240Z my mom and I took from Corpus Christi, Texas
to Phoenix, Arizona in 1976. It was a great car and we did not have a
lot of trouble with this car. It was kind of cramped for a long trip.
It did good on the grades near Benson, Arizona and near Willcox,
Arizona. I got hooked on Interstate 80 thanks to doing a lot of rides
on I10 in Arizona and in New Mexico. This photo is from 1974.
I never drove this car! This was my mom's 1979 Chevette. It was bad
This thing was turned into a tin can around May 1985 at about 58,000
It was worse than usual. I was very surprised to see a Chevette at all
after the mid 1980s. This replaced the 240Z.
The next three photos are from my first car. It was a turbo diesel pick
up I drove from 1990 to 1999. I could do Pacheco Pass at 77 MPH in 5th
gear. I drove from San Jose to Las Vegas on a tank of fuel one time. A
lot of my trip photos from the 1990s on this site were taken using this
truck. I had some problems from "looney toon" auto repairs with this
truck also. The bad auto repairs were made just before I bought it. It
did very well in the snow and on steep climbs. I put old Texas plates
on it as a gag for these photos.
It really smoked when I would gun the engine. Also I got rid of tail
I watched a Cheech and Chong movie when I first got it and I got the
inspiration to get a fuzzy red dash cover for it.
This car is what I drove a lot from 1996 to 2010. I made a lot of trips
in it that are or at least were online on my website. This car was very
little trouble. It did really well in the snow also.
This Toyota Corolla was very reliable.
This was a hot shot rent a car from 2003. I loved this car and I
thought about getting one. This was used on a Southern California trip.
Some of that trip is online (US101 near 156 in 2003.) This is a Nissan
Xterra. The only problem with this car was that we had to stop a lot
This was a rent a car used on a trip in 2010. I really liked this car.
It is a Chevy Cobalt.
If I do US6 across
Nevada it will be in this car! This car is the one that holds the
record for driving in the worst traffic in my life. I was driving I880
not long ago and it was worse than anything I ever saw on I405 or on
I215! I never thought I would drive on anything like that in the Bay
Area. Also I am sitting up higher in the other cars I have driven over
the years. I have been driving this since 2010. A lot of trips on my
site were taken in this car.
