First car I ever drove eh?

1965 Ford Mustang.

Was my friend's car, I was 15, he was 16, I drove it (at speeds unmentioned) up and down his street for a while. Fun fun.

My first car, though was a 95 Cadillac Sedan Deville, which I still have.

My first car

pros

V-6...Very fast

cons

mods and fixes history

In-tank fuel pump died and I could not find a replacement. Hard wired a universal fuel pump directly behind the carb and ran the power to a toggle switch below the steering column (doubled as anti-theft device)

Barely made it to the junk yard where I parked it and walked home (purchased my second car later that day)

1969 Firebird H.O.

350 ci / 325 hp

4 speed

posi

speedo went to 160

It was very fast

Sold it to my bro when he got out of the Navy, the $1000 a year insurance was hard to pay. I had no tickets, no accidents, it was just that much for full coverage on a hot car like that around 71 when your 16.

1993 Dodge Dakota (3.9L V6) :laugh:

Pros

Good Runner.

4wd is great for icey mornings.

Low miles for a 12 year old almost daily ran, (84,963 miles)

More power than my buddies trucks :)

Manual trans. is way more fun than auto

New clutch

New front brake pads & rotors

Cons

The radio only works sometimes.

Brakes I don't like to much, its like 80% front / 20% rear :(

Balding tires (they are original)

Needs muffler :shifty:

Gas mileage..its a truck hehe.

Mods

Straight pipe to replace my muffler. It's a temporary thing. ;)

Current Status

In the backyard, with a full tank of gas. I drive it to school and work.

No accidents, bumper to bumper contact with my friend is on purpose. And on country roads.

Remember, I'm not tailgating.. :shifty: I'm drafting!

DRAFTING:

The practice of two or more cars, while racing, to run nose-to-tail, almost touching. The lead car, by displacing the air in front of it, creates a vacuum between its rear end and the nose of the following car, actually pulling the second car along with it.

1986 Pug 205 GRD. Great car (only needed approx. 4l/100km Diesel) until a truck driver decided to make an u-turn on the highway without looking into the mirror. :( 100 km/h and bang, only broke my nose...

jesus! that must have been an extremely expensive repair bill for a 'cheap car'.

how much did it cost to get the chassis straightened out? how did you manage to find all the proper parts on the cheap?

My first car was a 1974 Plymouth Satellite. I got it a week before high school graduation. It had a 318 c.i. engine, so it wasn't very good on gas.
