In 1985, I was 15. I was riding around on a Nishiki 10-speed, much like the once pictured below. Man, I loved that bike...

My first brand new car, a 1984 AE86 coupe 5-speed. Like most of my old cars, I wish I'd kept it...

A '77 Blue MGB. Then a '79 Audi 5000s after the MG was totaled by a girlfriend.

In 1999 when my friend (OE) bought a 1999 Ferrari 360 Modena I took the Koenig from him.
So I have known my car since new

This was my DD in 1989...

...and this was my weekend whip/all around chick magnet...

I was into Detroit Iron big time in my late teens. Nothing foreign in my fleet until the '90's.

In 1987 I drove a 1986 Saab 9000 Turbo, which had superseded an '82 900 Turbo. Bland looking, but very fast. Inside, it had a "swoopy" dash like the 928. Partly out of nostalgia, I bought a '95 900 a few years ago. Needs a new strut, so swapped positions with the 928 the other day to get onto the right lift. After spreading sand - 928 doesn't handle ice well.

I was 16 in 1979, driving my dad's 1974 Opel Manta

It was an absolute blast racing through the foothills of the sierras.
By 1980 I had my own 1970 Firebird Formula 400 Ram Air III.

‘88 16V Scirocco. CarChick bought it new in ‘89.

I don’t think we have a single picture of it.

Probably something like this

I was less than a year old when my 78 rolled off the line.

in 1988, I saved every dime I had to buy a 1985 Dodge Shelby Charger. Awesome car compared to the junky 1975 VW Sirocco before it. Super reliable, great gas mileage, and almost as quick is my buddy's 1987 Ford GT. Had it until I just before getting my doctorate. A nun totaled it with the Catholic church's brand new Ford Explorer. I'm sure I'll spend a few days in purgatory for that one.
