My first car was actually a 70 some odd Dodge Monaco that moved only when my dad sold it cause i wasn't doing anything with it. My first car i ever drove and owned was a 1978 Honda Civic like this one.

Oh gosh...we didn't have color cameras back then, so I had to search on the web for a pic: 1978 Chevy Nova 4 Door with a "3 on the tree".... anyone know what that means? Or was it 4? Gosh, I can't remember....

1987 Mazda 626, all original in horrible shape cosmetically, runs fantastic. Only left me stranded a few times: battery, snapped balljoint. Fun FUN little car to drive, will still burn both tires in a straight line (granted with a 5k rpm clutch drop)! Still gets 33-35 mpg'* on the highway. 218k miles, got it with just a smidge under 200k. Basic as you can get, no power, no A/C, nothing. Just my cd player.

1988 Buick LeSabre Custom Sedan with 156,000 on it when I sold it. Most reliable vehicle my family has EVER owned! It only needed a total of $1,000 in repairs over a seven year span. It had the LN3 in it too.

1991 Chev Lumina Euro 3.1

Dad'* company car from 3M, then I got it when I got my license. Had to put a motor in it, a transmission in it, I totalled it into a tree at 40 MPH and rebuilt it, and still drove it until I got my first Bonneville in 2003. What a champ that car was.

Moved on to a 95 Talon TSi AWD.
Then a 94 Bonne SLE
Then another 94 Bonne SLE. <-- this one kicks ***.

during my permit years i drove my dad'* 87 Ford Ranger, 2.3, 5-speed....can barely get out of its own way, tranny has over 200,000 miles, on its 2nd engine with lord knows how many, and oddly enough its in the shop as i type this

first car was a 1996 Bonneville SE, loved that car, hated myself when I backed into a pole one night, hated myself even more when I lost control of it and hit a pole, totalling it..ironic, the poles and whatnot.

here she was:.....with the Ranger in the background even!
