Inspired by Tripper and bored by work, I too have created an automotive timeline. While I have not had as many cars, it maybe still interesting to someone.
1986 Dodge Ram D100 Shortbox (2007* to Current)
My first car. *Technically got it when I was 13 years old. Legally in my name at 17. You can read my story from last year on it here, but long story short, it was passed on to me after the passing of my grandmother. My dad and I fixed it up and I’ve loved it ever since.
2006 Mazda Mazda6 GT Hatchback (2013 to 2015)
Not a car that I have written much about here. This was my Dad’s car and was given to me as a wedding gift on August 23, 2013, I was 21 years old.
I learned how to drive stick on it, honed my detailing skills and, perhaps most importantly, learned what under-steer was after having a code brown involving a sharp turn and a power pole.
It had some mechanical issues that were just starting and after being rear ended, it was never the same.
2014 Fiesta ST (2015 to Current)
I didn’t even know what a Fiesta ST was when I started looking to replace the Mazda6. I really wanted a Mustang, but money was tight at the time since I was 22 years old and had just bought a home that cost what felt like all the money in the world.
I looked at Fiesta’s on Ford’s site and came across the ST model. I found my ST on auto trader and literally fell in love at first sight. I bought it the next day
2016 Mazda CX-3 GT (2017 to Current)
My wife and I started dating at 16. I always drove and she never had a car. We were now 24 years old and needed two cars. We both liked the looks and so we bought it... not much to say here really. It is my wife’s first car.
2018 Kia Forte LX (2018 to Current)
WHY DID I BUY THIS.
