Well despite saying my 1st car would be the Holden, it is not.......

A month ago, $4000 got me a 1990 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8 GL 5 Speed manual

AWESOME car!!!!! it is bomb-proof, rust-proof and the build quality is AMAZING!!!!!

The Carb 1.8 litre 4 cylinder is rather gutless, but it suitable for what I need and I have to keep teh revs up when starting from cold.......:finger:

my first and current car is my 92 Toyota Pickup.

I know its not a CAR but if i had a choice on what my parents bought 5 years ago it would have been a Corvette or a Saab .. but i love my truck to death..gets washed every weekend and armoralled and polished and gets waxed every month...its my baby

i know its sad...but we all love our first rant at freedom

First car:

1991 VW Corrado G60
68mm pulley, ~15-17 lbs boost
BPU (intake, exhaust, some other stuff)
17" Racing Hart F24 (thought these were HUGE!)
Euro chin spoiler
Cut springs (just one coil front and back, c'mon, no flames!)

Mad torque! Could get it into ANY parking spot! Awesome suspension, although my GTO has better high-speed stability STOCK. Too bad the VW was an auto. Only one I could find after two months of looking that didn't have at least one bad syncro, so I settled for the auto. Hey, it lasted 2-1/2 years!

My first car I had was when I was 17.It was a 1989 Chrevrolet Camaro Rally Sport with the 305 engine.It was a true hot-rod.Bored out to 350 cubes,Edebrock headers,elarged water pump,and tons others that would take up too much space to list.I can tell you it was putting out like something like 450 horsepower to the wheels and would shred the tires at like 40 mph.It was Dallas Cowboys blue with IROC rims.I "enhanced"the inside with tiger-skin(not real)seat covers and white fuzzy dice(I was such a freak back then).It all came to an end when I had an accident that dented up the drivers door.It was just a dent but the insurance company said it was cheaper to just pay the car off(I had a couple thousands dollars worth ballance on it).I miss that car dearly.But one day about a year later I saw The Fast and The Furious and never looked back.IMPORTS RULE!!!!!!!!!!!:grey:

You must have one talented machinist that can bore out a 305 to a 350, as it's physically impossible....

But one day about a year later I saw The Fast and The Furious and never looked back.IMPORTS RULE!!!!!!!!!!!:grey:
