Cars that just weren't meant to be.....

The Vega. I had one just like this. Same color. It caught on fire driving down the road one day. Talk about scary.

The Pacer. I worked at a company that the main boss right under the owner drove one just like this. She was a very affluent lady and this is the car she drove. 

The Pinto. I never had one of these but back in the day it was always a big joke if you owned a Pinto. 

And my Maverick was one of my favorite cars. My son-in-law laughs at me. He says a Maverick is a Mustang wanna-be. I don't care, I still loved that car. It was white.

I loved it so much that when it needed to be traded in, I traded for another Maverick. Mine second one was like this. It was the first stick I had ever owned. I learned to drive it when I was about 5 months pregnant. After giving birth to twins, the 2 door had to go.

I owned a car that was a Dodge Dart and instead of a gear shift, the PRNDL were buttons on the dashboard. It was just a boxy car and nothing to brag about. But I bought it cheap. I didn't really like it. It was just what I could afford at the time.

But I will tell you this. If I could buy a new car today, I would be more than happy to say I owned a Dodge Dart now. Talk about a change.

Joe talks about the Pinto they used to have, but it was the only car they found that could hold son Joey's drum set. It was a bad car, though.

I also love the Maverick, in fact I have three of them, all fully restored.
