We can get a drivers license the day we turn 15 in Idaho.

1978 GMC 3/4 Ton Pickup Truck with a 7.4L with a mild cam and holley (forget the variety but it was bad ***) carb. Unknown HP but it had a buttload of low-end torque and killed just about anything to 50mph.

Lasted about 14 months before it thru a rod.

I then had a Midnight Blue 1987 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight Regency Brougham Coupe. Paid $950 cash for her and she lasted me until 222k. Lasted about 15 months. Then I had a 89 Bonneville LE for 3 months ($100), a 95 Olds LSS-SC for 4 months ($100), a 1994 Olds 88 for 15 months ($1100), a 1994 SSEi that lasted 2 months, a 1993 SSEi for 12 months($4000), a 2000 SSEi that lasted 1 month ($4400), And finally a 1998 SSEi thats lasted 6 days($2650). I've bought all my cars with my own cash, only exception was the truck, that was a hand-me-down beater that my dad was embarrassed to sell to anybody since it had a plethora of problems. I've actually made money when I've sold every car except the 2000 SSEi....

had actually 3 first cars.

#1 **** brown 1977 Jeep J-20 truck, step dad sold it before I started driving, was supposed to go to me.

#2 **** brown 1984 Dodge Rampage.... think El Camino, but half the size. paid $300, never drove it out of my neighborhood.

#3 light blue 1986 Dodge Aries... ahh yes the "K" car... absolute POS. paid $200. thought it needed a motor, ended up being the started locked to the flywheel. the car spent more time broke down in the driveway then on the road driveable. just a partial list of replaced parts: starter, shocks, alternator, brakes, brakes, brakes, cv axels, computer, tires, steering column, then finally transmission.

then my first bonneville, 1989 se absolutely LOVED that car, lasted forever!

75 Chevy P/U 3/4 Ton tags.. 1 ton suspension from the factory. Nightmare to buy parts for ...except that sweet 350. aka 5.7L

Nothing could touch that old bomb until 50mph. Gearing rocks... told I could have it if I fixed it up and got it going again. I think I sunk more into it than my b'ville.

Sister left it dented on all 4 corners before I got it. Timing chain had worn a hole in the cover..... exhaust quickly fell off.

I had a 95 about 5 years ago. Paid $300, put a clutch in it and it was great. I actually loved mine, it was in really good shape, and it was a standard. LOVED it, would get another one if it was in good shape ad price was right.

I had a 1985 Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta V6. It was midnight blue, no rust, and only had 76k on it. I got it for $100 and sold it 2 months later for $1,500 And then I bought my 1989 Ford Thunderbird SC.
