Rusty - my Toyota Corolla
by: GiGi

I don't know what year she was, but I bought her used in 1987. She was a rusty color of red, hence her name.

Rusty was a faithful, dependable car with great gas mileage. She finally "rusted" away so I traded her in for another used Corolla in 1996.

Best car I ever had. When I left her at the dealer as a trade-in, she had over 300,000 miles on her and was still going strong.

MG, Jaguar, Plymouth, Corvette, Many Car Memories
by: Will

Memories come flooding back.

My MG,
the old Jag,
48 Plymouth,
the Corvette.
My 56 Chev. convertible was black and yellow. My DeSoto had a great sound system, was old and clunky but it was comfortable and took me up Rt. 66 to Phoenix weekly from New Mexico.

Like you, there have been many since.

The Corvette had the 283 V8, but second gear was wicked. I met my wife just after buying the car. We both would buy another over any of the rest if we just had one or two hundred thousand dollars to waste.

Her Scout was second only to the Jeep on the beach but I think the Scout wasn't allowed to be sold until it had a good coat of rust.

Anyway, the model of the Corvette was given to me in 1959 by a young fellow, Phillip.

I allowed him to drive it, he dinged the right front rocker panel on a curb, he made me an exact copy (model) and his dad paid for the repair.

In a stupid moment, I traded it for a '62 Corvair convertible.

In another stupid moment, traded that for a Karman Ghia convert.

Excuse me for a minute. Think I will sit and cry for a while. W

Okay, laugh all you want. Most people thought this was an ugly car,but I thought it was beautiful.

It was my first car and my parents gave it to me for high school graduation.

1939 Rolls Royce Pickup
by: Professor Foe

Nobody knows for sure what Miss Agnes looked like.
She was an old classic Rolls that somebody had whacked off the rear of and turned it into a pickup. She was owned and driven by Travis McGee, a fictional character created by John D. MacDonald. Travis drove it all over Florida in his 21 novels.

John Steinbeck traveled all around the United States in 1960. He had someone build him a camper in the bed of a 1960 heavy duty GMC pickup truck. He named his rig Rocinante after Don Quixote's horse and took along his poodle, Charley. He wrote a great book about the trip, Travels With Charley.
