    Vehicle that is....

    My 1st was a 66 Chevelle 230 deluxe, with a 283 3speed manual, oil burner.
    My favorite is still my 64 Vette coupe. I've had it for 25 years.

    My first was a 1981 Luv diesel with a 5 speed:D

    My Favorite would be my 1987 K5 that is in my sig but the 1980 C20 6 pack w/454 I drove in highschool was pretty fun.

    I have only owned 5 vehicles so not much to choose from. The worst was by far my 1996 Geo Metro 2 door with 1.0l 3 cyl:haha: . I am sure Readymix remembers it.:doah:
