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

LOL. XD

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.


as a fellow supra owner (same chassis to be exact), ill try to be nice.

we dont have a V6.... its an I6..... never make that mistake again.... thank u

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.

My 1st car

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.
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.

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.
