What was your first car?


~Lucky 13 strikes again~
Hi all.

What was your first car?

Mine was a 73 Dodge aspen I had it for 6 months and then my older brother came back from boot camp and my folks gave the car to him. So I spent the next several months rebuilding a 66 convertible GTO so in the meantime I rode a Hurricane to school.

So what was your first car?


Endangered Species

A Mini Pick-up> the one pictured did not belong to me but it is in considerably better condition than mine ever was. I used to do donuts and j-turns to make the doors fall off.

I still have my first vehicle, it's a 1987 GMC pick up truck. I don't have a picture of it, but it's painted dark yellow. Right now, there's a lot of rust spots on it, but I'm going to get it painted soon.


Hell, It's about time!
I had a 1997 "Forest green" Dodge Dakota. It was a good ride for about 6 years until the tranny went bad.

2000 Dodge Neon. Had it four years, replaced over half of its parts. Finally died on my last year.

Mine was a '68 Olds Delta 88 with a 455 CID engine and a busted-out rear passenger window. $75, cash on the barrelhead.

When I got my Fiat I just left the beater in a no-parking zone and let the cops have it hauled away.

1994/5/6 (lots of junkyyard love for this car) Ford Escort Base Model/LX/GT

I loved that car.

Before I read anything besides the title I have to tell this story.

My first car was a 1998 Chevy Corsica with about 202,000 miles on it. Got it for $700 and actually talked the guy down from $1,500. I had that car for 19 days before it caught on fire. The power steering on it blew up or something and got fluid all over the engine during summer. And it went up like a box of lint.


I am the edge!
My first vehicle was a '93 Chevy S10, and I still have it, ten years after I bought it. The air conditioner is broken, it's a a bit rusty, and the right front blinker doesn't work anymore thanks to the stoplight that ran into it, but it still gets me around when I don't feel like taking the car or need to haul something.
