When I was younger, my family used to have a Jeep Wagoneer. Every time I see one or even just hear the name Wagoneer I have a flood of memories. I know that most people have an attachment to a specific model or even a brand so my question is.....Do you have a favorite model or brand that you have a connection with? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/driver.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0">

Old Land Rovers definitely remind me of all those trips we did when I was a young kid, and Renault 4s. Stll many arround of both, fortunately.

Opel Corsa B which was a one unlucky car. We had 2 accidents (once a small collision with Fiat 126p, and once a Ford Transit going 60 kph hit in the car's rear end), a side mirror got tear off when another car going opposite direction was overtaking and we almost had a head-on collision by 80 kph, also a wheel tear off one time (thanks God we were going slow) and many many more adventures. That's why I'll remember that car long.

The first car I remember riding in is a 1954 DeSoto that was 10 years old when I have my first memory of it. It was then replaced by a 1 year old Dodge Custom 880 and then in 1968 by a Dodge Monaco. My most vivid memories are Mopar products of the 60s.

our old toyota previa. so many family road trips and long car rides and adventures in that car, like our yearly trips to mammoth and las vegas crammed in that car. fun stuff.
