Your first car

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Your first car

Hey! Tell us all about your first car, no matter how horrible.

My first and current car is my creme '91 Escort LX (with GT tranny :D. Must do 0-60 in at least 10 seconds now. Good ol' rust buckets!

Also I have friggin HUGE fuzzy dice hanging from my mirror...everybody at school I talk to about my car says "Oh! You've got the car with the dice!" During these winter months I have Blizzaks up front and my old bald all seasons out back...makes the tail swing out real good on those icy days Ah, great fun. I'll never ever forget this car.

My first car was a 78 Oldsmobile custom sruiser wagon!! Yeah and it kicked! It had room for 20 of your best friends, and felt like you were steering a ocean liner! Man I miss that car.

My first car wasnt a car at all, but a truck. I still have her, the 82 chevy silverado. Has a rebuild 400 engine with somewhere around 350 hp. Its really loud, has holes in the fenders from rust, the truck is red/brown also from rust. Has a th 350 transmission, rebuilt and shiftkitted to hell. A 6 inch lift and 34 inch tires complete my first beast. Damn i love this truck, so fun goin out muddin, slidin down into hills, and banks, never gets any damage...noticably.

I wish I had a picture to post 'cause she was a bute.

My first car was a 1972 Olds Delta 88 Royale with a 455 Rocket in it. A big maroon 4 door with black interior that I picked up for $300 in '84. A beautiful back seat that you could lay down in with feet touching one door and the top of your head touching the other. (not that I was ever in this position 8) )

She would cruise at 120 with no effort and a nice floating sensation as you flew down the road.

Lessons learned in this car (among others):
- first starter replacement
- found out what happens when your radiator cracks internally so your antifreeze and transmission fluid mix. (have you ever seen frothy Pepto Bismal?) (wish I still had that motor though)[/i]

My first car was a 76' Gremlin. It got ya just about anywhere you wanted to go but after two motors it started smoking pretty bad. If we knew how to swap motors around like we do now....could have dropped a 350 chevy in there or something and change the tranny around. It was a southern car so the frame and body was really good shape. The motors in them sucked though.

2. 88' Ranger 4X4 pickup
3. 93' Geo Tracker
4. 78' Buick Regal (sold to a guy in Long Island, NY to buy the 74' Nova)
5. 88' Ranger extended cab (have now)
6. 74' Chevy Nova (have now)

:twisted: my first car was a BEIGE (gotta love beige) coloured 1981 Datsun Stanza. Replaced the damn clutch in it 3 times, before i sold it and bought my current car 93 lancer. It was a good first car, as i only paid $1000 for it. It got me to a from work, so it didnt bother me to much.

I must be the oldest on the list because my first car was a 1950 Chevy 2dr hardtop. Paid $15.00 for it, installed a SBC and drove it to school when I was 15. Drew up engine mounts in Tech. Drawing 1, Made mounts
in Machine Shop 1, installed engine in Auto Shop 1. School came in handy.

2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS (NOW)
1999 Ford Mustang GT
1994 Mitsubishi Eclipse
1991 Mercury Cougar - this was the first one and I only had it for a couple months!

1973 Ford Maverick, straight six, 3 speed...yellow with brown interior.

Not exactly what I wanted (first generation Camaro...) but it ran great. Even when the carb came loose and started spraying gasoline everywhere.
One of the tie rods broke and my now ex-wife said it was cheaper to get rid of it than to fix it. (For the record, it would have cost 80.00 to fix it, and she ended up spending 300.00 for a new car...go figure.)

My first car is the one i own rite now and its a 72 chevelle malibu with a 350 4 bolt main it has a weiand intake and eldelbrock airfilter.It pretty fast car for only 2300 candian.OH YA ITS ALSO PINK!!! 8) PIMP MOBILE

posted by  chevelle_72

My first car was a Fiat Panda. 0-60 in over 15 seconds and a top speed of under 85mph. Since owning it, I took the rust off the bottom of the driver’s door, filled it in and touched it up with spray paint. I changed the spark plugs, air filter and 2 tyres. I got a spare set of keys cut for it but the key cutters made a bodge of it so the ignition key got stuck and I had to turn the engine off by pushing the choke in before unhooking the battery. I had to take the ignition lock out and a new ignition lock cost £30 (call it $37). I took the ignition key back to the key cutters and they confirmed my suspicions by saying they cut the wrong blank so of course they cut another ignition key for free. After all that I was told that it would cost more than it was worth to have all the underneath repaired for the M.O.T so it got scrapped (
I can laugh now though lol

My first car wasen't a car at all it was a beat up 1989 f-150 xlt lariet. the truck had a 308 bore out to a 318. power windows and locks. the passenger side window would roll down but not up on its own. the tires were bald and the transmition loved to throw it self into nuetral all the time. i had to have a complete engine overhaul done on it and it still loved to die. It even died once while I was on a rail road track. After that i just got rid of that truck as fast as I could. The only good thing about that truck was that it could burn ruber whenever you wanted it to. Thats how i got my first ticket. Exhibition of acceleration. It was a very nice burn out though, so it was worth it.

posted by  malibu2000

1965 Beetle bought in 1972 for the princely sum of $250. The first lowered (Cal-Look) bug on the east coast. Built a monster engine before you could get performance parts off the shelf. Ran the shit out of it all through high school, de-modded it so my sister could learn to drive it when I moved away, then got it back a few years later. Still have it today. I'd sell my lungs before I got rid of it again. 8)

I'm not even going to go into a long song and dance about your "pimp" ride, I'll let someone else do that. But... under bragging rights you quote a weight of 1576 pounds. How about somewhere near 2500 pounds. That is unless you got the helium filled wheel covers from K-Mart.

technicaly my first truck was a 1977 International Scout II w/ 63 thousand miles, it just needs a new body, then i got a 1990 plymouth sundance, that thing would go through anything, learned how to rebuild clutch/transmission, replace head gasket, alternator (3 times). from there i had a 1992 Bonneville, and now im on a 1998 GMC Jimmy, all in about 2 years.

First- 1968 AMC Javelin
Current- 95 Cavalier

posted by  Mr. Horsepower

That seems like a step in the wrong direction to me. :?

posted by  vwhobo

actually, i do have an explanation:

The Javelin, which i got when i was young, stupid, and 13, was a heap of junk. My dad paid 2200 dollars for it, becuz it had little rust, and it ran pretty well. It had a Straight 6 232ci motor, and a near death 3 on the tree. My dad got it for me for a learning car, on which i learned the basics of engine maintanence, body work, interior work, simple stuff, ya know? Well, it started becoming a money pit, and since i had no income other than a few lawns i mowed here and there, i had to do something. I sold the Javelin for 1900 (all profit for me) and was carless for a couple of months. Two months later, I had been car hunting like a madman. I really wanted to have a car for when i got my permit. I had looked at mostly chevys (Cavaliers, Berretas, even a few Luminas and older caprices) and had found nothing but crap, huge distances from my house. Well, as luck would have it, 3 days before i got my permit, my mom came home from work and told me there was a blue car for sale like the next street over. My friend and I went down and saw it was a beautiful teal cavalier, perfect body, perfect interior, 73k miles, and for only 3000 bucks, well in my price range. The next night, it was mine.

And that is my story. So basically, i fournd exactly what i was looking for (Mainly because my parents insisted on ABS and airbags), well below my max price, so i snatched it up. It had only been for sale for a few hours when i found it too. so i was pretty lucky.

Gee, here I am happy that my kid is running wipers and a muffler again.

my first car was a 1993 chrysler imperial, then i bought a 1986 pontiac firebird v6 2.8 173. but that caught on fire after I had the battery and the alternator replaced, she was a but, just about ready to put in the 350 to. Now i have the chrysler imperial back in the shop to get it ready for the raod again.

You never know. it could lead to Camaros, Firebirds, T/As, Corvettes, Vipers, Silverados, S-10s, Syclones, Typhoons, Berreta Indy (or GT, GTZ). or he could go the other way....Ford Escort, Geo Metro, Ford Ka....

nice story though. I would tell mine...but nobody wants to hear it...

posted by  Satty101

Why is a road leading to camaro's,firebird's etc. a good road to take???

posted by  vwmaniac

My first and current car is a 95 firebird...Kind of proud having that i have bought and paid for it myself and not by anyone else :P anyways here it is, and yes the fenders look like they are a different color, but it's just because the sun was setting when i took the pic, they normally don't look like that

Interesting how the shadow seems to match the door line perfectly.... ;)

I thought that was just my imagination... I wonder what color they would be in direct daylight. :rolleyes:

posted by  vwhobo

For the sun sure is bright in the background!!

And one more a Photoshop enthusiast as it just me or does that tree on the right seem a bit odd in that the trunk is "lit" up more than the tree on the left? Would'nt the shade from the trees that seem to shade your car also be shading the trunk of that tree?

Just a thought...

posted by  BavarianWheels

Yeah, but... The tree bark matches in GOOD light. 8)

posted by  vwhobo

look at the ground. it's all dark. I don't think that one looks right to me.

posted by  Satty101

Just because you are jealous don't diss my car, I'll borrow a digital camera just to show you morons that it does match, goodjob, but you will have to try harder, maybe try putting something down that i myself didn't point out and explain why next time eh? Plus having the fact taht the car came from the factory like that don't you think if it actually didn't match i would of got a different car or pointed it out to them, Factories usually don't fuck up taht bad

posted by  zoomo

Yep, you got me, I'm jealous. Someday I want to be a name calling little wannabe, just like you. :rolleyes:

I'm boiling over with jealousy!!

For the Detroit factories...that is probably correct...but they do "eff" up?

just to add motor oil to this flaming the sky is quite bright....unnaturally bright IMO...and for that to happen it would have to be bright in the pic....which it is not. i think we have an X-Files case here. 8)

You know you'll think i'm lying when i say this but it's true and actually fairyl funny, that was during the sunset when all the rora-bori-alis stuff was happening a few months ago, I dunno if that would have anything to do with it but it's funny that you said it might have something to do witha s olar eclipse

posted by  zoomo

also it's not that hard to see that the sun was setting because you can see that the top of the left top of the car is bright with glare while the side is dark and shaded, the sun would have to be to one side of the car to make it look like that, look at how dark the ground in front of the car is and look at how bright it is behind it. Don't you think that the sun setting just out of the camera to the left would cause it to do that.......

*edit* also while on the "x files" thing notice the 3 black dots near the top in the sky....there were no birds as far as i remember :P, and notice the white blurr in the far right of the screen, and the really bright spot in the grass on the right in front of the car

he can even fix the BIMMERS. anyone please tell me how to add pic to my sig. please

posted by  driveway

You are not alone with that problem. Some of us have signature pics and some don't. Growing pains of a new format I'm being told.

posted by  vwhobo

Do "we" always speak of self in third-person?

posted by  BavarianWheels

Well, A Porsche (IMO) is the kind of first car that you'll be remembered by. Atleast in my stupid city :roll: .

Actually, The Beretta in my Sig. is a photoshoped version of a friend of mine's beretta. I don't have one. I have a 1996 Saturn SC1 that will probably be sold here before too long. The next car I want to get is a Beretta Z26 or GTZ. A GT wouldn't be too bad but I like the Quad 4 a little more than the 3100 (3.1L V6). But then again, a Beretta Indy would be very nice! :heh: But the odds of that are so slim, well, you get the idea.

To help you out with your sig, right click on the photo you want, click on "properties" (should appear at the very bottom) and then there should be a web address. highlight it and click copy. Then go to your CP, Signature, and simply type in " (address) " Do not use spaces in between. I did that simply to show show the tags. then click on submit signature, and you should be done. the pic should be there unless there's something I missed out on. If you need more help, Im pretty sure our Mods will be able to put a pic in there for you. Im not sure if they have that much power, but I think they do.

And guys, take it easy on the nOOb for now. He'll either proove himself to be a "mechanic of all mechanics", or he won't. Give it time and we'll see if the Biography holds true or not.

I don't think mods have that power...I don't think mods want that "power."

I know I don't want THAT power.

Okay, well my car isn't the hottest thing on the market, but I think it's pretty good. :thumbs:

Everything is stock except for the sound. It has a 12" Kicker Sub in the boot, and a set of 6" Pioneer Speakers with a Cadence Amp. Headdeck is a Sony Explod with 45x4W.

It does the job nicely. I want to install Neons and do a bodykit on it. Was thinking Green neons underneath the feet area.

posted by  mirage_au

And this is where I get flamed....

I personally like neon. Maybe in a few months if I can get a job again soon, I will put some neon on whatever car I'm going to end up with (looks like a 95 Chevrolet Beretta base right now :thumbs: ) I already have 3 blue sticks that will go under the front seats on both the front and the back of the seats, and maybe (I haven't decided) I will get some blue mini-sticks to put behind the air vents. I hope I'll be able to get headlight strobes, tail-light storbes, and red headlight accents. And then, a red 3" mini-neon tube behind the grille with a red underbody kit.

BW, SJ, Snoope and VWhobo, I'm sorry, but this is MY opinion and that's what reallly counts. sure, I would like to have people say nice things about my car but hey, It's my car, and if I get this stuff done to it, I'll like it and that's what counts.

Even if I don't have anything nice to say about what you're hoping to do to your next car, I like you as a member of the "Car-Forums" society. Having said that, there is that saying that goes something like: -

yes, they're street long as they're not on while driving. same with neon.

So that means they're not street legal. That's like saying it's legal to drink and drive... As long as you're not in a car on the street. Kids these days.:orglaugh:

well what they mean is that you can turn them on like in your "chill" spot but like while in motion you can't have them on.....

posted by  SuperJew

I gotta say man, I totally agree with that statement. I'm with you. So long as you like em, all the way - Few questions though, how do you get the neons in your air vents? You were speaking about mini sticks or something? That sounds awsome! :thumbs: Where do you buy them from?

posted by  mirage_au

Don’t strobe lights replace the indicator bulbs? What about headlight accents?
Are you planning on never using your indicators on the roads or driving at night?

posted by  snoopewite

all you really have to do is drill a hole through your vent system (lose some air pressure but it beats having the whire come out of the vents), take off the vents, put a mini-neon tube in there, slid the wire through the hole you made, and hook it up like any other neon stick. Streetglow has some good min-tubes. NEVER BUY LITE_GLOW!!!!

I was thinking one or the other but if I can pull it off, I will try both. The headlight accents replace one of you bulbs and are on pretty much all the time. You can't see them during the day nor can you see them at night while you're driving with your regular headlights on. They turn on when you don't have the headlights on or when the car is off (this drains almost no battery power). <--that's the website where I found them.
About the strobes, I don't exactly know if they can just stay on all the time or if they have to blink all the time. But I do know I have 2 bulbs in my parking lights (the lights actually on the bumper for a Beretta) so I was just going to keep the regular headlights and put those bulbs in the parking light housing. Sorry if that confused anyone. I know I kinda went back and forth here with this. But with these modifications, It shouldn't show up when I'm driving at night and It'll give it a neat look when I'm at a Beretta meet. :thumbs:

The car I consider my first is my current 1986 Dodge Daytona CS with the 2.2L Turbo Z, which I'll be turning into a 2.5L once i find the head and turbo from a 2.5L Daytona. I actually just picked this car up 5 days ago, and I freakin' love it!!

I hate to be the one to break this to you, but... Even if you can install a 2.5 head on your 2.2 (don't think so but I'm not positive) you won't have a 2.5, you'll just have a 2.2 with a 2.5 head. Replacing the cylinder head DOES NOT affect the displacement of an engine.

1996 Cavalier LS (Had 96k miles when I bought it, it now has 98k) and I'm planning on selling it soon. It has power locks, power windows, cassette player, alloy wheels, keyless entry, and a 2.4L 150hp engine (I believe it's the same as the Z24). Anyone know how much I could get for it?

I'll give you $1 for it.

'86 Toyota Supra. Black. V6, unsure of the hp at this point (due to the engine being rebuilt right before I bought it). My dad at one point threatened me by putting loovers on it. :<


My avatar is the front of it. She's so pretty! Rebuilt engine right when I bought her, so it's fantastic. She's auto, though, so. Learning car that looks good and usually gets a great reaction out of it!

Power everything, including power lumbar support (I was so surprised!). Thermostat in it, bucket seats. Getting custom seat covers soon for it.

Had new tires on it, too, when I bought it. I thought it was a steal for $2500, so. :3

Heh. Nice topic. :clap:

First car was, and still is, a 1970 Nova SS with a 350 and 4 speed tranny. One hell of an introduction to driving...the concept of driving a modern car makes me nauseous after driving the Nova for so long

My first car was an 87' Honda Accord! I loved that car soooooo much! I wrecked it when someone pulled out of an alley, and I slid on the snow into them! AAAHHHHH! Wait, I'm crying.......OK, I'm back...It had 251,000 miles on it when I traded it in for my 98' Eclipse...*sniffle*....just look at the pic...

My first official car was a 2001 Mits Mirage. I actually still have it, and use it for getting me through that god awful traffic everyday (I prefer an automatic for such aggravating driving conditions). It had about 48k miles on it originally, and went for 8,500 thanks to a sale the used car place had going on. Thanks to some flim-flammin' and bamboozling, I managed to talk him down to 6,000.

OK, two flaws with the car. A tiny lil ding on the side, and whoever owned it last time apparently didn't use floormats and wore cleats everyday.

My first car (that I own) is a red Lumina Z34 3.4L DOHC. God I love that car. The first car I drove (for 3 months) was a white Ford Exporer. I totaled it going too fast in the rain.

was a 1964 Chevy II, 6 cylinder, 3 speed. While I wasn't old enough to legally drive it, the neighbor girl and I spent a lot of time sitting in it and draining the battery, listening to the radio. :smoke:
My 2nd car was a '63 2 door with a mod 283, 4 speed. I ran the battery down on that too quite often while waiting for the cop to write my ticket.
Those were the good old days gone by. :thumbs:

my first car was a 1995 acura integra gsr. Soon after getting it i started modding it. It can now do the 1/4 mile in around 12.5 secs. Not that good but still have a lot of stuff left to do with it.

Someone tell me how a 12.5 is "Not that good"?!?!

Im sure I posted in this, but for those who dont wanna read it all, my first car was a 1990 Chevy Beretta GTZ. Followed by a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE.

First car ever was the old school Mazda MPV. Yep, a mini-van. But I was wiser than that because my parents had an almost brand new 1996 Nissan Pathfinder and I just happened to get in a car accident totaling the MPV and therefore acquired the Pathfinder by default.... :mrgreen:
