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!

and you seem like a real person and not a spammer, so id suggest you change your signature so theres no link

just telling you what you would probably be told later on anyway

edit- you traded a 1.6L geo for a 2001 ss camaro? ( not wrecked???)

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

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.

88 Nissan Sentra 5 door STATION WAGON 1.6L FWD 4 speed auto

this car had to be rare since it took me forever to find a pic...

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.
