Q: What Was Your First Car?

My first car will always be remembered, and i think most people could say the same of thiers. I had a '93 Cavalier coupe, special edition (but the 'short-bus' kind of special) I guess its the thrill of having your first car that makes it so incredible. I always hear people saying, ' i wish i never sold my first car', and now im saying it. Sure, my cavalier had exaughst problems, overheated to the point where i carried 6 gallons of water/coolant with me. And sure the rear bumper fell off one day while i was driving down the interstate and almost killed a few people. A bit of duct tape, and it was all good. But i loved that car, and thats what matters.

But thats just my car, i posted to find out yours damn it!!

I'm going to check out possibly my first car tomorrow a 1990 gt mustang 5.0 (I should have got this car a long time ago, but I had to give money to my mom to put in the bank) I should have pictures up by tomorrow if it all goes through.

1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale 4-door. Picked that baby up for $300 (my own money) in 1984. She had the 455 Rocket under the hood and floated effortlessly down the highway. Ahhhhhh, that was livin'.......

Same color as the one below but not a convert and had 4 doors. In fact, somewhere in the northern Kettle Moraine is one of my hub caps.

My first car was a 1986 SAAB 900 8v saloon. my dad bought it new about 3 months before i was born, and drove my mom to the hospital in it. i grew up with the car until april last year when it finally gave up the ghost (mostly due to me crashing it twice and being an overall dumbass in the car-care department) when i got my current car, a 2002 mazda protege5.

The hand me down 1986 Chevy Celebrity. That poor car had already been through my older brother and sister, so needless to say the rear end had been replaced twice, the front end 6 times (no joking), and the side doors replaced from a t-bone.

When I got it the driver side door wouldn't open from the inside so you had to roll down the window and open it by reaching the handle from outside. Eventually, even that wouldn't work and you had to crawl across the front seat and get out the passenger side door. When I bought a newer car, my little sister got it and wrecked it a few more times.

She currently still has the poor Celebrity which is sitting in her front yard collecting dust. The back lights have red tape on them to simulate the plastic covers that used to be there (apparently they fell off somewhere on the road). The muffler is currently connected to the car with a hanger (if you want to call it "connected"). Neither of the front doors work. The front end was smashed in again and the grill is hanging off of it. The radiator is blown. The tires are now all flat. The interior is screwed and I'm suprised it hasn't blown up.
Man that car was built to last, lol.
