What was your first car?

Home  \  Off Topic  \  What was your first car?

Don tknow if this has been done but hey what the H#ll. If you have pic we'd love to see it and if not thats fine too. Just tell everyone what the 1st car you had was and may be a bit about how it was why you got rid of it and what you upgraded to. Here we go.

Mine was a 1993 Geo storm hatchback. (Red) I called it the cherry bomb. Nothing like a 1.6 4banger to get you driving career of with a very soft bang. I traded it in in 2001 for a SS Chevy Camaro. Much better!:mrgreen:

My first car was a 1962 Mercury Comet, back in '78. I customized it then traded it off for a '71 Torino GT.

This is it in stock form:

As I stated in your intro thread, you are in violation of the rule on advertising. I will let you sort it though, as you were polite enough to send me a PM...of which I have responded to :thumbs:

My first car was a 1.3-litre Toyota Corolla saloon, similar to this one, only mine was gold in colour and a UK spec model.....


I don't have any digita photos of my car as it was before I was into all of this stuff, lol.

Mine was metalic brown, with a brown and creme interior. Gave it to my Dad, who totaled it about 8 months ago. That car sipped gas, it was the most pocket freindly car I've driven.

Well that depends My first car was a 53 GMC and we dropped in a 427 and then sold it. But I didnt have my liscense yet. The first car I got after I had my liscense was a 1996 Chevrolet Z71 It got like 9 mpg plus It had a govenor for 100mph so every time I was going somewhere, it was cruise control at 99mph haha. It was the mud dog. I went through 4 Trannies in 2 years. That off roading is hard on shit. Sold it and bought the Z

I almost lifted the Z71 and ran a TT 383 in it because I had a low comp Forged 383 in the garage but I decided not to. Now that my parents are gonna buy property on the red river Im pissed cause, finally when I have local property to mud on.... MY truck is gone, Ill probably just hit it up in the HEMI.

In the US the cr-v is the smaller version of the Pilot.


That's the older version that you're probably familiar w/. New style has been released.

I actually predicted someone would say this before I even posted.

posted by  Bronxie

So you did? :laughing: JP

posted by  chris_knows

Lol no. I traded it in for the 325xi. Lost 4k on it, unfortunately.

It was a really good car. I'm just not an SUV person like I initially thought I was.

1986 Chevrolet Celebrity. My mom bought it new. It became the hand me down car once all the kids were old enough to drive. I was the third of 4 to own it and it had already had 4 front bumpers replaced, rear bumper x2 and the driver's side door wouldn't open, so you had to slide across the bench seat or pull a "duke's of hazzard" move (which doesn't work too well in these cars). The last time I saw it was about a year ago in my sister's front yard. It had red tape over the rear lights (HAHA), the front bumper was duct taped on, the radiator was blown, neither of the doors would open, the windows wouldn't roll back up and there were some birds living it it. That car was a tank. :laughing:
