A 1967 Plymouth Barracuda. This pic was taken after I got it towed from the junk yard to my brother's home. Six months later...
B. Car is complete including Chrysler Cordoba high back leather power seats, cruise control, tilt wheel, and ac. This pic was taken in the spring of 1986 while it was still driven daily. Hit a pot hole and tore a ball joint right before I was married in May. Car was parked in one of my father-in-law's garages while I repaired it and then sold it in '87 when I needed money for my first home.
C. 1969 Formula S Barracuda purchased when I got the blue one on the road. Senior in college with no time and lacking desire, I sold the car and bought an engagement ring.

I was 17 YO when my current 928 CS was produced, and the happy passenger of a brand new Espace, like this one.

Espace I phase 2

We were three boys in the back and this was the first time that I had my own seat, and seatbelt!

I had a '76 and '78, with a B210 in between - If I'm not mistaken, those are base 280ZX hub caps you are running there.

In 84 we bought a Pontiac Parisian SW for the family, but I was driving a Dattsun SW to work, and trying to get a 72 TR6 to be roadworthy.

In 86 I commuted in a 50 gmc, an upgrade image wise from the datsun.

Good catch on the hub caps...some clown(s) stole the originals and replacement set. The local Datsun dealer took pity on my student status and gave me the ZX knockoffs...

1988 would have been my third year in dental school, so I was driving a 1987 Mustang LX 5.0 L hatchback. Bought it new for around $12,500. Had 225 hp and a great V8 rumble. Amazing how Porsche was getting 320 hp out of the same displacement!
