Well if we're talkin VERY first cars I guess I would have to say my old 1988 Chrysler 5th ave with the 318. ran it with Straight pipes too Steel blue with a big ol whip antenna Bandit style on the trunk. Spent more time bombing that thing in and out of gravel pits than I did driving that thing on the road.
Wish I had pics
Most people will call those cars gutless, and rightly so, but the thing'* engine and tranny just wouldn't die.
1985 Buick Somerset Custom. Two tone blue, 3 speed auto, 2.5L iron duke.
Engine blew up the very first time I drove it. Money was tight and I didn't get it back for 6 months. Lasted 1.5 years and did it again. Fixed it, bought the Bonneville the next day. And the head gasket blew several months later. It now resides behind a shed on my parents' farm.
