1990 GMC Sonoma. It was an old beat up eyesore of a pickup that I bought from a guy who basically had it sitting in his yard rotting away. He had retired and pretty much had only used it as a work truck, so it had surprisingly low mileage on it for its age (just below 125K IIRC).

I got it my senior year of high school (early 2010) for $600 with money I'd saved from a dishwasher job and drove it for 3 years with no issues. Didn't even need a key to crank it. Had been wired to where you just had to turn the ignition. The wheels might have been worth more than the truck, but damn I was proud of that thing.

Do you have a preferred local dealership for the performance cars?

It was my 3rd or 4th but by far my favorite, and except for the color looked a lot like the ‘71 in my avatar which is a 911S with carburetors. Mine was a ‘73 911T with Bosch mechanical FI and was the Aubergine color (Kraut for eggplant). I took this picture yesterday at North Houston Porsche where this little Orange Classic is asking $120,000 which blows my mind...

I went from the Buick to a 79 diesel rabbit.
That was also some culture shock. Lol
I bet that Rabbit was fun. Course VW kind of screwed themselves in recent times. on the diesel side with their software shenanigans to fake environmental compliance. The only diesel I ever owned was a Toronado, about a 1980, which I got off my girlfriend at the time (a few years after the LeSabre which I sold after changing jobs), and it ran well.

We have a VW Tiguan which used to be my wife’s before I got her a Subaru. I drive the Tiguan once in a while when I don’t need my truck. I call it my poor man’s Porsche.
