Default Ok, what was your first car?

I am surprised this hasn't been asked (or maybe it has been and I didn't search right) BUT I see alot of y'all just getting licenses or buying your first car, so I had to ask.

My first training car was a '79 AMC Concorde Wagon "Government Special" (no rear seat, extended rear deck, all white w/blue interior, and poverty caps). Met its demise by going down a ditch, back up the ditch, *slightly airborne*, and slammed into a neighborhood sign made of oak

My first "on my own" car was a 95 Dodge Neon Sport. Left it in Guam.

I just turned 16 and bought a 84 Mercury Capri which was Mercurys version of the Mustang. It had the Ford 5.0.

I had nothing but problems with it since I bought it and come to find out, it was wrecked and redone, very poorly at that. I found wires cut uner the hood. so I spliced them back together to find out that my wipers would stay on even though the switch was off!! some of the wiring under the hood in the loom were melted together tons of other issues. I ended up beating it for about a month then traded it in for a bigger shitbox!! LOL

this wasnt my actual car, but exactly like it.

That is GODLY status for those transmissions. I had a 85 Charger that had trans problems and a 95 LeBaron with that tell-tale downshift clickity-click.

my first car was a 1997 Mitsubishi Mirage DE with 168k of pure abuse from my mom on it. she bought it from a dealer in chicago in 99 with 30k on it and well when i got it it was a smoking heap lol. it burned alotta oil, 1qt in a couple hundred miles. its airbag light was on since day one. the check engine light had been on since 2000 and i traded it in 2004 for $600 on the jeep i just got rid of.

god i miss that car ALOT. i see it running around every once in a while still. one of the mechanics that works at the dealership i sold it to bought it. I would DEFINATELY buy another one in a heartbeat.

its was identical to this one just different hubcaps.
