I feel such kinship. I (and my family) was also cursed with a 78 Malibu. Blue and rust. Drove it until the timing belt failed (which was fortunately not long after I got my driver's license). My poor parents bought it new. It died sometime in 95 or 96. Our was even worse, since it had the CA-emissions V6 in it.

Oh god, and vinyl seats.

It was so bad, it made a 91 Taurus feel like a sports car.

my list?
it's a short one.

1: bought a used Beetle in the 60s to convert to a dune buggy with intent of putting a 4 cyl. Porsche engine in it.
i was not well prepared for this so after a while i took the car to the scrap yard.

2: there was never a second car, or a third...

My list is short, as well:

1969 VW Beetle which I drove for about 10 years, or so.

2003 Acura RSX Type S, which, again I've had for about 10 years.


And that's it. I guess I'm due for something new?

2014 Vette? Somebody has to be the first one on the forum to buy one.

Dan, I'm sure that you had explained your screen name before, but now it is finally resonating with me. Cool.

I appreciate the effort with the photos, Tom. I was surprised how close a resemblance the Dodge Challenger bears to the Ford Mustang of that year:
