No, not the band... specifically, the vehicles you have owned/leased over the years.  Ironically, this idea came to me during a saturday morning bicycle ride.

Take any 5 vehicles you have had over the years (if you can't come up with 5, use your parent's vehicles) and draft 5 players from each model year - (need to have 5 different years).  Here's my 5:

1966 Mustang - 289 small block, 3 spd on the floor - Dad bought it for $550.00 & I paid him $50/month when I was 18
1969 VW Camper - pop top - many trips to Eastern Washington going 25 mph up Snoqualmie Pass
1988 Dodge Caravan - The family truckster
2004 Chevy Impala - My wife's current ride
2005 Ford Ranger - My current truck, has just over 40K miles mostly because I commute to work by bicycle.

I'm going to limit the years to post WWII - 1946-2012.  Please post your vehicle make/model/year when signing up.

$120M salary cap
No - AAA, WW, DH, clones, trades, injuries or live play
Choose a stadium in use during one of your 5 years

'81 Reliant... the original K-Car?
Yep you got it finn2030!  I learned to drive a stick on this car which was nearly impossible to get into first gear.  It even had a couple bullet holes in the door.  I pictured it being in the Sabotage video by Beastie Boys!

1963 Ford Falcon - and so I says to my dad, "Hey, where's my car?". To which he replies, "I had it towed five months ago." . To which I reply "Guess you were right,...I did lose interest in putting lipstick on that pig."
1976 Chevy Monte Carlo - my second car. This pig didn't need lipstick, this was a scary-fast vehicle.
1978 Chevy Monza Spyder -given to me by my buddy Rich after he twisted my scary-fast Monte around a utility pole.
1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass - I got busy with my buddy Rich's ex-girlfriend in the backseat. Please don't think less of me for it.
1999 Dodge Caravan - the vehicle that I drove my baby, Zoe, home in. (Neither Rich, nor his ex-girlfriend, were involved.)
8/29/2013 10:50 PM
Hey I use the TaylorMade Monza Spyder putter!
8/29/2013 10:57 PM
Welcome rbow & dodgebob!

The Pacer was an odd design... and backseat confessions are good for the soul.

8/29/2013 11:01 PM
1964 Chevrolet Nova Station Wagon - Straight 6 with a glide. The ultimate high school cruiser. 
1967 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser - Yanked the 330 and replaced it with a 455 that probably put out close to 500 horse. I miss this car. 
1973 Chevrolet Camaro - Rust bucket. A failed attempt at teaching myself to do body work. 
1990 Chevrolet Sprint - I needed something that got better than 12 MPG. 
2001 Honda CRV - When I became a daddy. 

I'm a little peeved that finn disallowed my 1940 Oldsmobile Business Coupe... 

Ha!

Not included... 1967 Dart, 1966 El Camino, 1972 Chevelle, 1969 Cutlass, 1962 F-85, 1977 Camaro, 1984 S10... Yowzers...

My dad had a fully restored 1966 Oldsmobile Delta with nitrous boost & a 1968 Chevette!
