so far, i've had 2 70's, 2 74's, a 76, a 77, a 78, an 82, and an 87 SS.
of those, i actually drove the 74's, 76, and 77. the rest either got parted out or i got rid of before i got them road worthy. the 87 is currently sitting at my mom's waiting for me to either sell it (going cheap- like $300 cheap) or part it out and scrap the shell.

Mom owned a 72 Cutlass Supreme. Wrecked it when I was a baby. Dad owned a matching one but with a Muncie, same color & everything right around the same time. Dad sold the Cutlass, bought a 70 Chevelle in 1985 & drove it until I got the keys when I was 15. We built the motor in it when I was 12* (first motor build-assist). I only drove it for 4 months before I blew the motor & the car burnt to the ground during restoration in a fire.
After my mom wrecked her Cutlass, she owned a 75(? - hard to remember) Elky for a while until she got a 76 Caprice (we called it the banana because it was big & yellow ). My step-dad has owned a couple of 80's Monte Carlos, but not sure what years. Never really paid attention. He also had a 96 Monte.
My Grandpa Rago owned a 75 Grand Prix, loaded with options. It supposedly had a police package from when he was a deputy & special ordered it (my guess is just an F41 suspension, since I've never heard of 9C1 being available for them).
My uncle owned a 69 Chevelle in High School. My other grandparents owned a 78 Cutlass & an 82 Regal. My cousin has owned three 71-72 Cutlasses so far & is on the hunt for another one. This is just what I can recall, I'm sure there's more & this is only counting A B & G bodies. I could go on for days about other cars.
Now for me. I started with the 70 & soon afterwords bought a 76 Malibu for $275 that I drove throughout high school. It was every bit as nice as the one that I currently own & I modified it along the way. After losing it, I dropped out of domestics & moved on to Eclipses for a few years. I scored a 72 Cutlass for free just to get it out of the owner's yard. This got me back into A bodies. Apparently I must have caught a fever or something because....... About a year later, I traded my last Eclipse for two 71 Chevelles (although one was just a shell). Before I could do anything with them, I traded Dan for the 73 Chevelle. Probably two weeks prior to that, I bought my current 76. I plan to get an A Body for my step son. He is getting ready to turn 7 & already loves helping me out with cars.
