    This website is fun for older people or for people that's owned older cars. Featuring the original factory brochures for nearly every American car you have ever owned. Pick the manufacturer, the year and the model. Enjoy!
    Wish it listed all the old pickup trucks, it list some.
    Also some interesting stuff under Miscellaneous.

    My first car was a 56 Ford.
    In the last 53 years we've owned 8 cars.... Fords, Morris Minor, Pontiac, Honda & Lincolns.
    6 trucks.... 3 Fords, 1 Dodge & 2 Chevy.
    1 motorhome (Chevy chassis).
    All but one (1965 Morris Minor), were bought new.
    Other than the first 9 years, we've been a 2 vehicle family.

    How many different vehicles have you owned?

    Russell and Dale, I appreciate and enjoyed seeing your list of vehicles.

    Russell... 76 Corvette, wow!
    I bought a 76 Ford station wagon that year.

    Dale, when I was 16 my buddy had a Model A. We had a lot of fun in his Model A. His uncle was the best Model A mechanic in the county.

    We never owned many vehicles. Usually drove them for several years. Our present car is 9 years old.
    Never owned but one vehicle that I sold for more than I gave for it. Drove that 65 Morris for 10 years and sold it for $330. That was $30 more than I gave for it.

    those older cars were like tanks, but they were like tanks you could work on though... i cant even change my tires without resetting the computer on my truck... the new cars are way to complicated and have to much computer software.

    Tell me about it. My 08 Avalanche cost 4 times the amount our first new house in 1958. And 16 times the amount my first car cost in 56. But on the 56 I didn't get email telling me it had a low tire. LOL

    Great seeing all the vehicles you people have owned.

    That's just awesome; I love older cars. We're fixing up a '69 F-100 that will be my brother's first vehicle. It's very interesting to see what was new technology back then.

    Technology in the mid 60's till 74 was monster engines. Then the gas problem started. It was fun tho. dafin can relate. How many miles to the gallon was never mentioned. How many seconds in a quarter mile was what it was all about.
