The ugliest had to be the 98 Ford Taurus. The front end looked like a catfish.

The coolest vehicle I ever had was a Jeep CJ5 similar to the CJ7 shown here. I loved my Jeep. It would go absolutely anywhere. But to be perfectly honest I'm really lucky I never got killed in it. Teenagers and Jeeps just don't go together, or at least not the old Jeeps.

And I had a bumper sticker on the front bumper that was black with small white writing that said "Nosey Little F***er Arn't You".


My ugliest was a 1978 Honda Civic hatchback except mine was a really ugly brown. Everyone called it the "baby dodo".

I can't begin to describe how ugly that Honda was but I also can't describe what a good car it was. I put that car through pure he!! and it just keep going. I couldn't kill it. I got pulled over by state trooper in it once and he wrote me a ticket for my car being a hazard to the public. Good thing that trooper wasn't around the day the back side window just blew off and hit a school bus! But that car had 350,000 miles on it when I got rid of it, and it would also go anywhere. It was front wheel drive and if it did get stuck we could just pick it up and move it. $5 in gas and I could go forever in it - no matter how unsafe it was.

The ugliest car I bought and drove Had to be the 1962 Plymouth Wagon I bought back around 77 from my boss for $250 bucks. It was good runner, I even made a trip to Tahoe in it after driving it for most of a year. The trip was it's last, as I changed the oil using a good detergent oil, and it had never had detergent oil in it, so it loosened up all the old deposits and plugged up the oil passages, and started knocking on the way home. Here is a picture of one, mine was a faded blue.


The best car I ever owned till maybe 3 weeks ago was the 67 Olds 442. What I mean by 3 weeks ago is I just bought a Jeep patriot. Mine was a dark Metal flake Blue. I wish I still had that car! Here are a few pics I found online.

I could bring both front wheels off of the ground with car, it had a nice Dana 411 gears with a semi posi rearend. I usually only got one wheel off of the ground though. I never drove it as hard as I could have.
