Your First Car

1996 Chrysler Cirrus. It was nice. 2.5L Mitsubishi V6 good for 160hp. CD player, automatic transmission, power everything. It was a good car. It met it's end hitting a F-250 at about 40 mph. :cry: I walked away without a scratch but "Tug" (that was the first 3 letters of it's license plate) wasn't so lucky.

that's what i got, except it was Dodge.. tranny went out at 127K, repaired it and then gave it to my cousin. we're going to do major service to the car since he's getting below 15MPG.

Ouch only 15MPG? I'm getting about 26MPG from mine...

Anyway I learnt in a VW Lupo 1.4 X reg as seen below

And I hated it. The engine knocks a lot of the time, it sounds horrible and it looks like a small box on wheels. Wasn't comfy either. But it did handle alright.

And now I drive my car, a '98 Rover 416i and I love it. Don't care what people say about Rovers, tis MY car and it is fine for me, performance is good, it's roomy, comfy, handles alright but it's not a sports car by any long shot. Oh, and it's British. :D

2001 Jeep Cherokee with around 100,000 miles on it. It is my first car and the one I'm currently driving. Gas milage sucks but that is the same with all Jeeps. Its a great little car though, I love it!

I just got my first car on Thursday and am currently fixing it up a bit before I drive it and tune it up to get better gas mileage.

1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass

Pros:

* Came with High Quality New Tires

* Came with New Brakes

* Came with a New Battery

* Working A/C

* Electric Windows and Doors

* Great Gas Mileage

Cons:

* Needs to be painted - It's burgendy and the paint on the top is rusted off and its faded on the hood and trunk and its champaigne burgendy so I'm going to paint it silver.

* Has a Windshield crack which needs to be fixed.

* 244,000 Miles

Vauxhall Nova 1.2 - and at the time it felt like a little rocket. So much so that I flipped it 360 and then some more, into a ditch! LOL

first car I ever drove was a 1964 Ford Galaxie 2 door in 1975. "Graduated" to a 1969 Galaxie 500 XL sport in 1978. That was really "my" first car. Wish I had that car back. 390 4bbl, 22 gallon gas tank which cost 19 bucks to fill with gas back then LOL. Since 1985, I've driven mustangs. On my 4th one now. 99 which I bought new in 99, only 46,000 miles. Still smells new :)

first car, still own: 96 strip-down 4 cylinder ranger with absolutely NO addons except poer steering and automatic transmission, which is actually a bad thing, imo. less power for heavy loads compared to a manual. it didnt even have a radio. it does now.

I'm still driving my first car, hopefully not for long. 1990 Dodge Daytona ES w/ V6. I will hit 160,000 miles here soon. Trying to sell it so I can get a mid-90's V6 Mustang. Yeah I know, V6, but it would be cheaper for insurance and gets better gas milage than my Daytona does now.

Citro?n Saxo 1,6 VTS 8v with 88hp:cool::

Only reasons why i didnt get a 16v with 118hp, insurance (18y old:angry:) and becourse here in Denmark most of the 16v saxo's have allready been maxed out the engine, and totaly pimped out :((

A nicelittle> car, personaly i think its pretty cool in the VTS version.

My car got;

Sports Front Grill without Citro?n logo

Alloy Fuel Cap

15" Citro?n Alloy wheels

Sport Brake disc's at front

40/40 lowering kit

Clarion Headunit

And this is what i plan for it;

Enclosed Air Cup Induction

103mm (4") Exhoust

Smoked front, rear and fog lights (With maybe some xenon kits)

Some better sound stuff (Not really in to :p :p)

Red Brake calipers

Tinted Windows

Cons.

Don't have my driver license yet, so can't really say :blush:sh:

Don't have any pics, or cam so':blush:sh:

Looks like these ones' - same color and a:D :D (Just with other wheels, and without sunroof)
