Wow, a 1976 Gran Torino....
I grew up in the 70s and I used to watch Starsky and Hutch...
I can still remember riding in the back seat with my cousins (I was probably around 6 or 8 years old) past a car dealership that had one of those Starsky and Hutch models on display...we couldn't stop looking at it.
Maybe I will own one of my dream cars from the seventies or eighties someday. One dream car I wouldn't mind owning would be a Buick Regal Grand National GNX or maybe a Ford Mustang SVO.
Two pieces of unique American Muscle that were created during a time when American made performance cars were just beginning to make a comback.

I traded a 2005 Ford Freestyle AWD for the 2007 SF SE AWD
But as far as my car purchasing history goes...
1964 Pontiac Bonneville convertible- Wish I still had this car. Great for surfers on the east coast.
1970- Ford Maverick. POS but never stranded me.
1978 Chevy Monza- First brand new car
1980 Honda Civic- Sank it in deep water
1981 Honda Civic(4d)- Nice car
1983 (?) Izusu Impulse- First sort of sporty car
1984 VW Jetta GLI Best car I have ever owned
1986 VW Jetta Decent car, should have keep the GLI
1986 VW GTI Second best car I have ever owned.
1987 Pontiac Grand Am (16v) Decent car
1988 Dodge Raider 4x4- Decent SUV, my first. (mitisubushi montero clone)
1989 Pontiac Grand Am- Should have keep the dodge.
1991 Isuzu Trooper- 2nd SUV 4x4
1994 Hyundai Sonata- Fair decent for an earlier model hyundai
1995 Nissan Maxima- Another great car I should have kept.
1996 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4 Decent SUV
1998 Isuzu Trooper 4x4 POS worse SUV I have ever owned. A lemon for sure.
2001 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4- Good SUV, wish I still had it.
2004 Isuzu Ascender 4x4- traded it for the 2007 Sonata SE V6. Great SUV, but too top heavy and softly sprung.
2006 Hyundai Sonata V6- good car-should have keep it
2005 Ford Freestyle AWD mixed feelings, good rid of it and traded it in on a 2007 Hyundai Santa FE SE AWD
So now I have the 2007 Sonata SE and Santa Fe SE AWD. Time to stop buying cars. LOL

Lots of people post pics of their old cars on their CarSpace page. I couldn't find anything older than my '78 SuperBeetle. link
