it seems to be in decent enough condition, but you couldnt done any better for a first car? i had an acura legend that i got for $4000, might still have it if a ricer hadnt T-boned me and crushed in the drivers side rear quarter with his rsx, which was also totalled, so i win, cuz his car probly cost 6x more than mine

prolly could have done better, but i have loved this car from the beginning, and i know exactly everything that is wrong with it. so instead of buying somebody elses problems, i just got this one fixed. for about 550 bucks, i think thats the best deal around these parts.

I would crack on ya BUT,my first was a '74 Toyota stationwagon. Pale baby blue was the color.

We can't be too choosy about our first car....especially when we want to ride and the money comes out of pocket!!!!!!!

That'* not a bad first car. Everyone has to start somewhere. No dissing at all...

I had a Tempo a couple years ago. Picked up from the auction for $200. It was an 89 and had all wheel drive! Man, was that car a POS. I could never get it to run right....the engine lobed heavily...would make the cat red-hot (even with a new one). I think it had a bad PCM because it would flood itself out with fuel. Gas mileage was terrible....got only 14 MPG. I'll tell ya, there was never a car that I enjoyed running hard more than that one! I ended up selling it 5 months later with 10K more miles for $175. Wasn't a bad deal...just an interesting piece of machinery!

Tempos are sweet. A lot of my friends back in HS drove those things.
