    Well that brings memories....

    I had a citroen bx16, it was a blast untill I lost all hydraulics and breaks at 100km/h on a highway bridge...

    Then came the Holden carrera when I was in West Australia during my college years, very nice and fun as it was a station wagon, go figure, a single college kid with a station wagon, never the less all buddies had a ball.

    Then came my hot rod era, as all of us buddies were into V8, I got myself a Holden Commodore VP, miss it, love the power of V8 5litre ex pursuit vehicle, again all of us had a ball.

    years passe by and now here in Canada, I have a Ford Explorere XLT, great with the family now...a wife, and three boys later.....youngest 3 months.

    Um mm next should be a mustang both my wife and I are eying...but for now just eying
    Live life to the fullest

    not a bad first car i bet you get good gas mileage, one thing i can not stand is those people who buy honda civics and put a stupid sounding muffler and a fin that does nothing and think it looks and sounds cool. it makes me lol everytime

    first car was a 1974 Mercury Montego Station Wagon complete with wood grain panels on the side. Kind of looked like Chevy Chase's car from the vacation movies except mine was Tan... Great motor.. 351 Cleveland, but the car was not cool to drive. Lots of memories with that "sweet" ride in high school. Next car was a bit better... 1982 Chevy Camaro Z28.. Gift from my parents for getting accepted to the college that I wanted to go to...

    My first was a tan 99 ford ranger xlt 3.0 2wd. I've rebuilt the engine since me and my dad bought it at 136k miles for $3700. Its still running strong at 157k miles. The only upgrade I have is new tails. I want to plastidip my rims black and give the truck an interceptor look. Still, a first is a first.

    1970 Chevelle, SB400/turbo400 trans & a 12 bolt rear w/Detroit Locker & 4.10 gears.
    That was a heck of car for a 16yr old & boy did I ever go through some tires on it, but it was a lot of fun though!

    Of coarse you could say my first was the beater Toyota 4x4 woods truck we learned to drive on at 13, but my first "I" bought & paid for car was the Chevelle.
    Look out for the tree/crunch!

    LiPo? Naw NITRO!!

    This was my first ride. Keep in mind, it did not look like this when I got it, but this is what it looks like now. Was given to me in 2005 when I was 15. I'm 25 now. Still have her after 10 years. It's my back and forth to work beater these days.

    '93 C1500 pickup.



    Honestly, 10 years ago, I didn't expect to be lucky enough to own this at my age, but I do. My everywhere else but work car, '13 Camaro SS w/ 1LE Package



    Also along the way I had a '94 Nissan Sentra, '05 Silverado, '12 Camaro V6.

    Let's just say 282 ponies out of a 4.0L 32V V8 is plenty for a 15 year old.

    sounds like fun, my dad had a chevelle as his first car and his brother had a chevelle wagon.

    Got my first car yesterday as a 16th Birthday Present from my Grandparents. Did some work to it so it is working again, just had to get a new fuel pump. It is a 1991 Isuzu Pickup Truck. No radio or anything like that, but I am going to install one and some tie down hooks in the bed for my dirt bike.

    I'll post up pictures this weekend when it gets back from getting the oil changed and some things checked out.

    My first and current rig is a 1986.5 Nissan D21 4x4 SE-V6. It's in pretty good shape for being 28 years old.
