My first car was a 78 Oldsmobile custom sruiser wagon!! Yeah and it kicked! It had room for 20 of your best friends, and felt like you were steering a ocean liner! Man I miss that car.

Peace.....

I had a 64 Chevelle 2 door. I bought it from my uncle for 125 bucks. I pulled the 6 cylinder, rebuilt and put in a 283. Then I painted it gloss black, replaced the interior, added Chrome wheels and new tires. It turned out pretty good, and I learned allot.

Woohoo! I'd take the Caravan...

Friend of mine has one just like it...maroon, the thing barely runs. The back window wiper hangs straight down. He understandably drives his ZX6R more often.

My first car was 1966 Plymouth Valiant. She was ugly, the stuffing was coming out of the seats and drum brakes on all 4 corners, but that 225 straight 6 was a pretty powerful motor. I surprised a lot of ricers with that old car.

Gee my first car a 71' VW Super Beetle White with a hole under the passangers seat

Can't know them mini-vans either I bought an 87 Dodge Caravan (Maroon, think they were all Maroon from that year):bonghitte
Anyway needed something to carry loads of people for road trips and moving (I was just moving to the area). Finall got rid of it last year. Had to donate it rather try to make back the $1500 I paid for it

Now I drive a 2K Honda Odyssey
Plan to get either the New Z, RX-8 or (Praying) a Skyline if it makes it to the States intact:angel:

My very own first car was a 1984 Toyota Cressida. It was a bluish/green color. Man, I used to race everyday with that thing. With all the racing that I did in High School, when I finally wised up somewhat and stopped racing, the car started to have problems. Mostly engine leaking oil. Yet through all the hell I put it through, the transmission held on tight.
