Your First Car

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.

Thanks man. I've waited 2 years to get my license (only on a learners permit still) and to get a car. It sucks being 18 and still having to rely on your mom to take you places. Once I get this car I'll finally get my real license and get a job to pay for it.

Have you seen the majority (like 95%+) of mustang drivers? They are all <Snipped> types. I wasnt calling that guy a <Snipped>. I like the car (well older models), but I hate the drivers...and not jealous or anything Edited by Anaron

I'm just going to say this: Almost all drivers are <Snipped>, they all believe they own the road. I'm not just saying this because I'm an owner of a Mustang. I'm saying that since it speaks the truth. I guess I should call all BMW drivers <Snipped> too because of that. See my point?

I bought a 1972 Datsun 510 new for $2700 when I got out of college. It was a great car, AKA "poor man's BMW". In 1981 I replaced the original 1.6L engine with the Datsun/Nissan L18 SSS 1.8L sport engine. That came with dual SU carbs like the 240Z. I had a custom cam made, shaved the head to raise the c/r, ported the intakes, and added a water-alcohol injection system from Edelbrock. That thing would kick.

I found a fuel injection intake manifold, but I never got around to rigging it up. I sold the car for $1000 in 1990 to a kid who wanted to restore it. I still miss it.

I still haven't got a car yet, but it looks like the first car I'll have driven will be a 2009 (59) Citroen C3 Picasso.

It's our new family car (we got it last Tuesday), and my dad's already given it a good runaround. He's already done about 500 miles in it so far, mostly due to taking me up to Thorpe Park for the Need for Speed Shift UK Finals. Did about 400 miles just from Friday and Saturday. :p

FFS. When I first posted it, it came up fine.

And worst of all, I can't edit the original post. OK, I'll upload the pic:

1972 Chevy Impala. Had to share it with my brother. My senior year i bought a `74 Olds Delta 88 4 door. We called it the banana boat because of the color. Solid car... my younger brother hit a Maverick with it and totaled the Ford. Little damage to the Olds.

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Bought it for $2900 in 2004, peeling tint and balding tires. 112,000 miles.

Drove for 3 years. I put a few listings up around on autotrader and ebay and right after it didn't sell the first round, i got dominated at a stoplight.

Not at my own fault, but we lost money on the insurance. KBB valued the car with 155,000 miles for $1900, I had it listed for $3999(~140,000 miles).

Anyway, i got a 1997 Toyota Tacoma V6 manual 5spd 4WD for a few years, then sold it for $7000 (bought for $4200) and now i'm rolling in a 2005 Honda Civic EX coupe($12,000 - 33,000 miles). next car is definitely going to be 2009 honda accord, i'm a junior at university now so hopefully once i graduate.

I bought a 1991 Subaru Liberty GX, auto, ($3000) but the second time I took it out we heard a rattling noise coming from under the car, turned out the oil pump broke and the car yard wouldn't refund out money, they only gave us credit at their yard.

So I now drive a 1998 Mazda 323 Astina. ($6,500)
