Not fun at all, thanks... This is a story on the dangers of poorly mastered CDs... and stupid college graduates.

Basically I was driving home from work, in medium Bay Area traffic. I wanted to get home a little faster, so I was pushing the pace a bit. I put in my Gary Hoey CD. This CD is the brightest, most poorly mastered piece of crap I have ever heard. I looked down to turn down the treble because lord, my ears, they were bleeding. Ooops. Bang, rear ended a woman.

Fortunately, neither of us were hurt and my insurance took care of her car. However, since I was a bit low on cash, I hadn't gotten collision on my car. The really irritating thing was that I had just gotten a new clutch (lovely, wonderful, marvelous clutch) and had 3 days previous finally gotten the high idle problem which had plagued the car since long before I got it. Before Peter had it, too...


Now I'm depressed. I'm gonna go cry in my coffee...

In order
1978 Ford Fairmont Station Wagon "The Bomber" (high school)
1986 Mitsubishi Colt Vista Wagon
1975 Chrysler Matador (you could fold the front seats flat to the back, acres and acres of vinyl)
1983 Subaru GL Wagon
1988 Chevy Cavalier

1997 Honda Civic
2005 Subaru Forester

Also have a Raliegh Road bike and a Marin Mountain bike. Go figure, the Marin is more suited to the pot-hole filled streets of Chicago - who needs trails?

First off, I'm jealous of you folks w/ the 60's muscle cars. Oh how I'd love a 65 GTO, convertible would be icing. I had to Tivo Rides on Discovery HD last nite because Joe Rogan was getting his custom 'Cuda done by the guy who built Chicane.

1973 Impala (that was a boat but you could load ALL your friends in it)
1978 Malibu Classic (I hated that car)
1962 VW (Cal look, lowered, dechromed w/ rebuilt 1600. LOVED THAT CAR)
1990 Eagle Talon TSi AWD (FANTASTIC RIDE)
1996 Ford Explorer V8 5.0L (still have it, running strong at 160K)
1999 BMW 528i wagon

200? VW Microbus if it ever happens OR
2005/6 Magnum SRT Wagon
2007 Hybrid Suburban

I like to think I live by the rule I read in an Esquire magazine one time, as such I will try my darnedest to avoid a minivan, despite the practicality. "Any man who drives a minivan is half a man."

Owned...List forthcoming

Driven: Entirely different animal given what my folks drove

Never got to drive the 1968 Ford Thunderbird...all I remember was it was fast...I think it had the 428 in it.
Green 1972 Ford Maverick (My Dad kept alive and put close to half a million miles on it driving into Dallas everyday)
70 something Mercury Montego Station Wagon (faux wood on the sides and all - reminiscient of the Family Wagon Cruiser from National Lampoon's Vacation) - present from Grandmother
Green 1975 Napalm on Wheels (Ford Pinto Hatchback)
Purple 1975 Napalm on Wheels + 2 (Ford Pinto Wagon)


1969 Green Mercury Montego (302 with 4 barrel until my Dad stripped the float valve adjustment and rather than fix that, replaced it with a 2 never ran the same again)
1966 Blue Ford Mustang (six banger with automatic transmission)
1975 White Dodge Colt (bought from my brother with engine totally dissassembled in the trunk...reassembled engine myself and drove to college)
1972 White Mercury Montego (same body style as the Starsky & Hutch car)
Some sort of vehicular transportation, do not remember what.
1979 Silver Honda Accord LX Hatchback - automatic
1992 Blue Honda Accord DX Sedan - 5 spd (Step daughter totaled)
1996 White Honda Accord LX Sedan - 5 spd (Current vehicle)

My wife has worked for car dealerships for our entire marriage so...we have driven (her demos):

Honestly, I only miss three of them; the Charger, the Coronet and the '70 'Velle.

The charger was a of six or seven hundred made and the only hobby on that list that I didn't lose my proverbial shirt on. Every time I see one on a television "muscle car" type show I have to wonder...Those that were supposed to know told me that there were only a couple of hundred left when I owned it. The RT was almost as rare due to some oddball late model-year drive train combinations and was by far the most meticulously restored project out of my humble stable (due mostly to the fact that I owned it the longest). It still lives in the same town as me and I try to buy it back every few years or so but the current owner claims to have "burnt the bloody title to that ride". The 'Velle SS was just fun sporting it's 454 built to insane specs. I have many good memories about cruising town Saturday nights and shaking the storefront windows on Main Street. THAT was my idea of car audio.


I'm better off with the sensible four door sedan, aren’t I?
