Default first cars

Well the first one I had was a 1973 Impala 2 door. 350, 4brl Rochester, and horrible vynal seats( mainly in the summer. Got a rosted azz plenty of times ) Got it form
my parents when it hit 100k. Called it "the Sherman Tank" because you coulnt hurt that thing. Got rid of it in 84, when it had 495K and the only thing we did to it was new carb and power seering.
Then got a "73 Monte Carlo. I loved that car.

I got my license when I was 18. My first was a 1988 S10 4WD with the never popular 2.5L Tec-4 and a 5 speed. I guess it was an uncommon motor for a 4X4. The car I learned to drive on was my parents 1975 Malibu with a 350.

My folks had a 73 Caprice Classic with the 454. Now that was a fun car!

my main driver was a '92 dodge shadow paid $500 for it... beat the hell out of it, including launching it off of the Mall of America parking ramp.

when i wasnt beating on that I got to abuse a 96 jeep grand cherokee nicknamed the tank

I didn't get my license until I was 17, and I didn't buy my first car until I was 19, and that was a Nissan Maxima SE with a 5-speed. I'd probably still have it if my friend hadn't wrecked it.

My first car was my 95 SLE and I paid nothing for it except a big hug for my mom. My mom bought a Suburban and gave me the bonneville. Back in 98-99 or so.
