First car I drove, even though only in a GO Station (Train) parking lot here in gtown...

Was my fathers '95 Olds Cutlass Supreme SL 3.1L.

Pros.

- I hate that tank... (I've hated it since he got in it '98) So I don't really care if I damage it (I'll end up repairing it anyways... gotta do some body work on it... finally started rusting)

- 3.1L V6, mmm Power.

- easy to steer (for me anyways)

Cons.

- 259,000+KM on it.

- Have to fondle the shifter to get it to engage reverse

- Sucks on Gas.

- A/C system leaks..

- Minor issue where it pulls to the right, has to be a control arm or sumthin.

- rear spring needs to be replaced (split and fell off it's mounts)

- it's a boat...

- It's an automatic...

The first car that I will own will be a Third Gen Acura Integra with a 5spd manual, I hate automatics with a passion.

Is it so wrong to like the way that POS handles but hate it's appearance?

My first car is gonna end up being a 98 Honda Civic sedan 5spd manual :D (my father is gonna buy it for himself to act as a temp replacement for the pos, then I'm gonna buy it off of him lol)

First I ever drive was a Ford Escort MkII, B reg when I was about 6, just the wheel on the edge of a cliff in a place called Dunscombe Manor Holiday park (devon, recurring family holidays ahhhh!)

First OWNED car was a Ford Fiesta MkII F reg, when I was 19, 3 years ago. 0.952L haha, that thing could do 70 for about 5 seconds! Awesome car, still works, and has only 57000 miles on the clock or so.

Since then Ive had 5 cars, current one being a Ford Focus 2004 revision, 54 reg, 1.6L Petrol Ghia model. Fantastic luxuriously simple car, if that makes sense.

My first car was an S reg (1998) Citroen Saxo.

It was alright... apart from parts of the exhaust had to be replaced several times, the brakes completely went and had to be replaced... in the end it probably cost more than the actual car (which cost ?1000).

Sold that just before my first year at Uni... now in my 2nd year I have 03 Metallic Blue Peugeot 206... love it (even if it is the most common car on the flipping roads!)

Fun to drive

Great handling

Appreciating in value

Road tax exempt

Cheap insurance

Con's

Safety, or lack of

Noise

Not exactly practical

1990 Nissan Silvia S13

God I loved that thing sooooooo much! Wish I still had it.

Car was nothing before I got it, me and a few friends put it together, it had some very nice modifications.

One of my friends created an ad for my car and the rpmlounge sponsors!

Here is a few pictures of mine, getting it on Thursday. 2003 Ford Mustang Coupe not a GT. Insurance would kill me being 18.

In one of the pictures it looks like there is something wrong with the door, nothing is wrong, the door just wasn't shut all the way.

That's my first car.

So you're automatically called me a <Snipped> because I own a mustang?

How stupid of you. Since when Mustang drivers are <Snipped>? Care to explain your wisdom on the subject?

Since my first car back in 1996 was a Chevrolet Cavalier Z24, I guess your first car is pretty hot! Nice Mustang at 18.
