Cars I Have Owned

 1972 Ford LTD

My first car was a  green 1970 Ford LTD, I was 17 and the year was 1983.

1976 AMC Hornet
My second car was a brown AMC Hornet. Both of my first two cars were hand me down cars from my father, which I paid for, but got a good deal on.

1980 Dodge Omni
My first car purchase from a dealer was a cream Dodge Omni four door hatchback.


1986 Toyota Tercel
When I married, I inherited a blue Toyota Tercel.
This was one of the best cars I had driven, no problems and it was light and nimble.

1991 Chevy Beretta
The first new car we bought as a family starting out was a red Chevy Beretta coupe.

1998 Nissan Truck
In 1998, I was looking for a vehicle and Nissan had great lease deals on their pickup trucks so I leased a silver pickup for like $125 a month, with no money down. Crazy right?

2000 Ford Ranger
After the lease on the Nissan ran out I switched to Ford and leased a white Ranger for $200 a month.

2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser
My second new car purchase was a navy blue PT Cruiser. This became my favorite car and I drove it for 10 years.




2012 Mercedes C250 Sport
My current car and my overall favorite is my white Mercedes C250. The car is fun to drive and the family loves it, too.


So there you have it, thirty plus years of cars.

If you have any questions or comments let me know.

Cheers,
Wade

Photography Scavenger Hunt

One thing that has helped me become a better artist (with my camera) is the Photography Scavenger Hunt . This group of wonderful photographers gets together online every couple of months to share their creations from a list of given Hunt words. The Hunt is currently on round 34 and I have participated since round 2 (It’s hard to stop!). I have met many of these scavengers in person, first local folks then later by going to their yearly meetup. Everyone in the group is passionate about photography and willing to share and help newcomers as well as veterans. A very welcoming group and tons of fun! If you are a photographer of any level you can play along. We use all kinds of cameras from our phone shots to pro cameras. All photographers are welcome! This is the sweetest, goofiest, most helpful group of people around. So don't be shy, you know you want to join us. The Famous "Photography Scavenger Hunt" sign-up will be here before you know it!

1998 Honda Prelude

I haven't taken any toy car pictures for a while, so here is one of my latest purchases, a Hot Wheels Car Culture 1998 Honda Prelude. I actually remember when I first saw one of these cars in real life, I thought it was a really cool car (at the time). I find it very enjoyable to collect these little gems and relive the past.
