Default My first car

Here are some pics of my first car, a 1983 Audi A4. The Bonny replaced this one. I'm sure she'* in a scrap yard by now, which makes me sad Believe it or not, this car had extremely comfortable seats, even though they were 22 years old.

I got her for $300, and sold her for $300.

WOW, the way you talked about that car sounded like it was a trash heap; looks like it was pretty decent!

DriverJohn, visually she wasn't bad at all. Mechanically, pretty bad lol.

I believe it was a 5 cylinder, but you wouldn't know it from driving it, haha.

Yep thats their Explorer. I never get to drive it anymore :( Mostly because it'* a V8 and they drive it as little as possible. We keep it for our boat, and other towing stuff.

Haha, yeah...

Sometimes I wish the Bonny was a stick shift. Occasionally I get to drive my parents neon. Only good part is that it'* a stick.
