  • What was your first car?

    I'll go first.

    A blue 1973 Ford Pinto, which I bought in 1977 for $900.00. I kept it for three years, and got about 30,000 mile off of it.

    1990 Dodge Daytona, which I bought in 2000 for 600 bucks.. Damn could that car fly for a 4-cylinder...

    Currently on my 2nd car... Don't like it near as much even though it's infinitely more reliable.

      Good topic.

      1987 Toyota 4-Runner.

      It was a piece of shit, as the 4WD went out on me in the middle of winter. Then the engine would lose power for a few seconds every 30 minutes or so. Toyota mechanics had the thing for 3 days, and basically said, "We're not sure what's wrong with it, but it'll be expensive to find out, and even more expensive to fix." Super. So I sold the POC. I only had it for about a year.

        1987 Ford T-Bird. No 16 year old should be given a V8 5.0. God I drove the hell out of that. It was 7 years old when I got it but still ran great. Now I've gone the SUV route with a 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sahara and currently a 2003 Pathfinder.

              an '81 toyota tercel.

              Bought it in '92 for $1100

              Called it the turd (sorry ferguson).

              Had the vinyl seats, use to spray it out with a hose. None of the guages worked.

              Sold it in '95 for $700 minus a clutch.

                My stepmother's 1969 VW Beetle. In theory, it was ocean blue. It was actually as much rust as it was blue.

                According to both her & my dad, if I could learn to drive it, I could drive damn near anything.

                    Pontiac Fiero. Paid $700 dollars. It almost made it home. I immediately had it towed back where the asshole who sold it to me only gave me $350 back.

                      Green 1980 Dodge Omni hatchback, in 1986. It was garishly ugly and not a vehicle to pick up girls in. It was a hand-me-down from my mom. I had it for 8 months or so and then upgraded to a 1984 Dodge Charger Shelby, blue with a silver stripe down the middle on top. That had a little bit of style to it, but I ragged that car out big-time. I drove the hell out of it. It was a 5 speed and I kept the RPMs high most of the time. I racked up 20,000 miles a year on it, a lot of it cruising the Hardee's 500 (the main drag in Mexico Missouri, from Hardee's East to Hardee's West) drinking and chasing the girlies with my buddies.

                      Those were the days...

                      Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

                        '81 Toyota Corolla station wagon...bought in '94 for about $900...it was silver-ish, I spray painted all of the accents gold, and reupholstered the inside in zebra-striped fur...I could go on for pages with all of the mechanical turmoil in that car's lifetime...
                        . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?
