Top Ten Favorite Automobiles

In honor of 10 years of business for Organize for Success®, I will be posting a "top 10" list to this blog each day through Wednesday, May 31st. Each Sunday, my team will randomly select from those who commented on the prior week's "top 10" blog posts for a gift card giveaway and free download of one eBook via The grand prize for celebrating Organize for Success, LLC's 10 years will be awarded on Thursday, June 1st, randomly selecting from all those who commented on any of the month's "top 10" blog posts as well as those who have subscribed to my eNewsletter for a winner to receive downloads of all 5 eBooks, a pass for my Stress and Time Management online video course as well as a 60-minute video productivity consultation.

Today, we'll cover my top 10 favorite vehicles:

10. 1926 Ford Model T - Generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the Model T launched assembly line production. Plus, it's got a fun nickname in the Tin Lizzie! I lean towards the '26-'27 version because I prefer its wheels, but each produced from October 1908 to March 1927 is special.

9. 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air - With the 1953 model year, the Bel Air name was changed from a designation for the 2-door hardtops to a premium trim level; I specify 1957 as my fave for its distinctive lines on the side and adding continuous mechanical fuel injection.

8. 1963 Rambler American - The first dealership my dad owned was Ideal Rambler so this make of vehicle definitely has a place in my heart. 1963 was the last of the American's second generation, a beautiful, compact, classic car, especially in this red.

7. 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX - Carroll Shelby had the right idea behind a performance car that looks like it should be racing but can be driven by the every-man on any road with wind blowing your hair and sun on your face.

6. 1970 MG MGB-GT - One of my dearest friends in high school had a knack for fixing up old cars, and my absolute favorite of all he did was this 1970 MGB hard top in fire engine red. Alas, this classic roadster is available only as manual transmission.

5. 1968 Corvette Stingray - This third generation of Corvette's iconic sports car was both gorgeous and offered advanced performance. I've loved learning about it through my Triad Corvette Club friends!

4. 1993 Mazda MX-3 - When I first got my license, it was a little delayed as I'd always been able to get a ride from friends who lived nearby, but this was the vehicle that gave me independence. How fitting it was the same purple as Barney after I'd watched so many episodes baby-sitting my nephew!

3. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - I am a firm believer that everyone needs a pick-up truck for hauling stuff, and the Silverado is hands-down the best truck, especially the double cab with Z71 Off-Road Suspension.

2. 2000 Mazda Miata - After college graduation, I got a forest green Miata with tan, leather interior and soft-top convertible. This sweet ride is at one with the road and hugs all the curves!

1. 2016 Chevrolet Trax - My current ride is perfect for me. It is compact enough but still has plenty of room for all I need; the leather seats are heated, it includes a sunroof for cruising with my music blaring, Wi-Fi is built-in, and I can control Siri from the steering wheel.

Which is your favorite car, truck, van, crossover or SUV? Why do you like that particular make or model best?
