Car Geekin’

I know not everyone is a car enthusiast, but we like our cars.   We like them a lot. Now, we don’t keep them clean nor do we typically keep them a long time, but we sure do enjoy driving them around.
We typically buy them because they’re fun, not because they’re smart.  Below is a “family tree” of our cars.

LEGEND:
M = Mine = my primary vehicle
H = His = MMC Racing’s primary vehicle
O = Ours = we both drove it around or we carpooled in it so it was mostly his.

Starting in 1998 (because life didn’t really happen before we got together)
