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.

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

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.

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...

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

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

For the sun setting...it sure is bright in the background!!

And one more thing...as a Photoshop enthusiast as well...is 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...
