    She was Sonora Tan, with antique saddle leather interior and tan cabriolet vinyl top. My friends in high school called her the beige bomber. Still miss her.

    Re: What Cad do you have, what have you had, what do you want?!

    My first was a jet black 1988 ETC -- no special badging that year but maintained the ETC tradition of a Beechwood interior and matching trunk trim. First of the line to have anti-locks, I think. I was the second owner (an older local doctor was the first -- it was his fifth Eldo or something and he just traded in every three years. My favorite part was its orange pinstripes which looked just great on the black paint. I kept it ultra stock and clean.

    I unfortunately lost it to a collision when a German tourist ran a red light at Constitution Ave and 14th Street in downtown DC. I was OK, the guy's passenger had broken ribs, but so what MY CADDY WAS TOTALED!!

    I replaced it with my current daily driver, my 1991 bright red ETC with 161K. I just love the "unbadged" look of this car -- many folks just can't figure out what it is. Plus the rectangular dual exhausts, 16" cast aluminum wheels, and I honestly get a lot of street compliments. Last week (I am not making this up) somebody left a note under my wiper in my driveway that said, "Do you want to sell this car? I love this car! (202) 555-5555." That happened once before about three years ago. I try to keep it as "factory" as possible, including tracking down the Gold Delivery cassette (still in the cellophane, of course!) No stickers or mods allowed!

    Only 2,249 ETCs were made in 91, and they only came in six colors. That'd be an average of 374 in each color. Let's say half are no longer on the road? That'd be an average of 187 left of each color. Finally, I'd think my color (Crimson) would be less-popular, so maybe there are fewer than 100 red 91 ETCs left?

    Sorry, later ETC fans -- that body style just doesn't grab me, nor does the cockpit.

    As to what I'd like...I would LOVE a black 1985 ETC with the white-letter tires. What a mean-looking machine!

    I plan to hang onto mine for as long as I can -- but if/when it goes, I hope there'll be a nice used black STS-V available!

    Sonora tan? I've never heard of that color, all I've seen is Sonora Saddle from thr early '80s. I guess I need to do some more research.

    BTW, great interior color choice. haha.
