T​he first car I remember that my dad drove was a Dacia 1310 that my dad got my his dad. Later on, my dad eventually gave the car back to my grandpa where it stayed with him until the late 2000's. Too bad I didn't write & film reviews back then so I can do a review on this classic Dacia.

T​he second car I remember him driving me to school when we were still in Romania was a Renault Clio. This was the last car we had before moving to Canada.

T​he first car my dad bought when my family moved to Canada was a 1st generation Ford Probe. As a kid, I thought it was the coolest car I'd ever seen.Plus, who doesn't like 3-spoke wheels?

T​hen my dad bought our first brand new car, a Chrysler Intrepid (Dodge Intrepid in the USA). It did the job of driving us around and I got my driving license in this car. He then sold it just as the warranty ran out.

H​e traded in the Intrepid for a Mazda 6 Wagon. This car stayed with us for about 6 years before getting rid of it.

  • Since we lived in a rural area and both parents worked, we always had two cars which provided ample driving opportunities. My dad was a carpenter so he drove pickup trucks. I remember a 1964 half ton Chevy followed by a 1973 Ford F-100. Family sedans were a 1864 Chevy Malibu followed by a 1967 biscayne. I learned to drive a manual in the Biscayne (3 on the tree). The car I dated in was a 1970 Ford Galaxies 500 (351 Windsor) with bench seats ( great for a high school boy with romantic aspirations). My high school’s sweetheart ( now my wife of 46 years) hated that car as the radio was on the left side and she could not adjust it to her favorite stations so I got to listen to my stations instead ( last time that happened). Wonderful memories associated with all those cars.
