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)

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.

First Car

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.

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 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
