Before I die I thought I'd better post a list of vehicles I have owned in order to have this information cycle uselessly and eternally in the intertubes. I don't know why, it just seems like the right thing to do. In more or less chronological order:
63 Plymouth Valiant - push button trans, no floor, caught fire on the way to see the Dead. Bummer.
62 Ford F1something or other - well worth the $125 - many cold mornings knocking ice out of the filter bowl, though.
53 Chevy Sedan Delivery - custom, 283 auto, road sign orange, got me, the old lady, two dogs, a cat, a goat and all our stuff from Ohio to Seattle. All the while towing her Volvo P544.
56 Plymouth Belvedere - another $35 Plymouth. No reverse - had to do a lot of deep thinking about parking.
49 Chevrolet 3/4 ton pick up - built like a tank. In fact, I think it was built out of tanks. Plywood camper on the back. Took me from Seattle to San Luis Obispo and served as a mobile home backed up to a cliff looking out over the Pacific. Eat your big fat hearts out, rich people. Abandoned in California prior to the Great Migration back north. One of life's big regrets.
