My wife and I dropped our truck off the other day for a tuneup and oil change and were commenting on what a good truck it has been for us and how all of our cars we have had lately have been good vehicles. We own three vehicles and they are all in good shape and I foresee long lifes ahead for them all. All of them we paid cash for, all are at least 6-15 years old, all are in good condition, etc.
But it did make me think of the worse cars we have owned. Mine was a Ford Pinto I had to buy right out of school. I had just graduated from Architecture school and had moved to DC and needed a car. I had zero money but had to find some car to get me to and from my first job out of school. I was able to find this POS Pinto for $500 that this guy had ‘refurbed’…what a piece of junk. He had spray painted the dash but had overspray on the side windows! It lasted 6 months before the brakes finally completely gave out!
My wife was telling me about a Chevy Chevette that she owned that had holes in the floor board and so she put down Birch bark to block the water from coming in!
So what was the worse car you ever owned (or do you still have it!).
