First car: 1995 Eagle Talon ESi... driving to work one day, wheel fell off, car landed on the rotor, destroyed the rotor and the axle. lasted me nine months.
Second car: 1992 SSE... Driving home from work, car started smoking, woke up in the morning to take it to the mechanic, started it up, barely made it out of the drive when it stopped moving... slagged the tranny. Lasted me 6 months.
Third car: 2005 Saturn Vue. Had to take it in for repairs 8 times in under 2 years. Still stuck with it, it sits.
Current car: my 98 SSE. Not had a problem with it yet.

1984 jeep cj7, was fun in the summer, horrible in the winter. when it would snow outside, it would snow inside, doors and frame didn't quite match up.

1974 Camaro, 350, 4-bbl, 3-speed manual. I miss it. Bought it New Year'* Day '91 from the original owner! $2,250 (mowing yards pays better than you think!). Sold it for $3,300 about three years later.

My first car, and I was glad to see another, was a 1987 (I believe) Dodge Aries K. What a friggen beast Here are some of the custom pimp things I did to it so people would know it was me :
Real fur steering wheel (crafted from an old scarf and sewing thread)
Disco ball beads all over the head liner
a larger disco ball beside the dome light (this was so you could point the small passenger side visor "flashlight" at it to create the disco ball effect)
Pioneer 5X7'* in the back, with a 10" Alpine sub and 250W Kenwood sub and Kenwood Deck

I will never forget that car, and as cheesy and tacky as it was, people 7 years later still vividly remember it. I let one of my friends drive it, and he was trying to keep up with a cavalier, and even after explicitly telling him not to drive it hard, blew the head on it.

After my K-car, I had the pleasure of driving a Pontiac 6000 LE (amazing vehicle), a 1984 Corolla (wierd hatchback thingy), 1993 Eagle Summit sedan 4-door, a 1996 Ford Escort, and now, my BONNIE!! YAAY!

My first car was my dad'* early 70s Caprice. I didn't own it, but noone drove it but me. Not a cool car, but man that thing was fast!!! All those nights racing home, trying to go fast enough to turn back time and make my curfew...

The first car I bought was a 66 Beetle. I loved that car.....
