My first car was a 1988 Ford Crown Victoria, Thats right for those of you paying attention I was rockin the Interceptor! But then as I was going around a pretty sharp turn, a tire blew out. This being my second week of driving I was unaware of how to handle the situation of my heavy, rear wheel drive car spinning out and panicked. Long story short, I ended up through a wall with a sign in my gas tank...Sad Times.

My next car was my dads 1998 toyota camry, but then he needed it again so I was back to being a carless bum. Then I got two cars for cleaning an old womans yard. One was an old (I don't know the year) GMC conversion van, and the other a 1975 Buick. The van never ran, well it did for about two blocks. We couldn't get it started, and then after replacing the battery and alternator, it started, but wouldn't go into gear. We replaced the transmission fluid and BANG got her started. She got about a hundred feet then shut off and refused to start. We gave up and had it towed to a shop. They estemaited $12,000 to fix it without including labor. We promptly pushed the van off their property and into a parking spot where we abandoned it and to this day it still sits.

The buick worked, not well, but it worked. Then one day, I tried to start it and was met with a wonderful, loud, extremely fast clicking noise. I tried again and it once again screamed out in pain. So I didn't care enough to get it fixed and its still sitting in my driveway in the exact same spot.

Then I inherited my brothers crappy CRX and have held onto it for over a year.

Point is, with those two free cars I got what I payed for them, Shit.

I actually didn't drive a car in high school. There was no actual point because I live right across the street from the high school. Everytime I went somewhere with my friends, it was in their cars. When I graduated my grandpa gave me his '76 Chevy Monte Carlo. It's a sweet car and I still have it.

Well, I live in an upclass neighborhood, we have kids driving BMWs, lexuss, Mercades, porsche, of course kids with huge trucks (lifted /w legal limit tires, its either 24 or 26 I dont remember), TONS TONS TONS of Mustangs. Of course we have the typical econmy cars to, but most are 00-05 year range. In fact one kid has a H2 Hummer, and my friend got a '67 convertable GTO for his first car, him and his father restored it.

1980 Chevy Citation, 1986 Cavalier (Borrowed mom's after wrecked first Citation), 1980 Chevy Citation, 198? AMC Eagle.

Were they as cool as most of the other cars in the school lot, no. They were sure a hell of a lot older. But hey bought and paid for em myself, and the Eagle was a blast to drive.

Giggle, now two of the snobbiest rich kids work at the bar I go to. Ahh, bummer for them, I drove beaters for a couple of years, they'll be driving theirs for the rest of their long lives.

Nice cars for HS kids looks like the trend now. I just drove the family cars (Chevy S10 and a Plymouth), and didn't get my first car (an '80 AMC Eagle) until college.
