What was your first car?

I was just thinking about this. I figure across the forums a lot of guys may have a different story. Maybe their first car was a VW, or a beater, hand me down, classic, or anything really. Mine was a 1989 Mustang LX 5.0. Some guy in the neighborhood had one that was all cammed out so all my friends wanted one.

I had already been working various jobs and saving to afford a car. It was white, with black trim, ten hole wheels, porno red interior, 100k miles etc. It was a looker for sure... This pic was after a lot of work here and there, few mods and a fresh paint job due to a little accident in Mexico. I sold it to a friend after a couple years to get something newer. He later sold it to another guy, who wrapped it around a pole and totaled it. RIP

89' buick lesabre. Was a beater I bought for around $600 when I was 16, this was in 2000. I had a banging sound system in it, 3 subwoofers in the trunk lol could see the rust falling off it when the bass hit.
Lol! I later found out that car had an amp wrapped in a t shirt in the trunk. It was powering some 6x9's in the rear shelf. Forgot about that nug, custom install they did

technically it was a '76 Cutlass Supreme my dad gave me....but since it never ran and he never gave me the papers...
mine was a 1981 red VW Rabbit. 4 spd...brown interior

Nice my dad had a couple old beetles when I was a kid. But they were mostly gutted and didn't have paint on them. He was the guy with all the "project" cars.

2001 Hyundai Tiburon, because I was a dumb kid that was excited to get my first car and didn't know any better. I barely even shopped around and pretty much picked a car on the lot at the first place we went to. I got rid of it soon after I submerged the intake in a puddle and flooded the interior.

A 1995 Toyota Celica and I loved that thing dearly. Here's the last time it looked good.

And other one after I added a set of JDM projector low beams.

1984 Oldsmobile Omega. Powder blue with a matching vinyl top and interior. 92 horsepower and a 3 speed automatic.

My dad bought it for $500 in 1991 off a little old lady who had given up driving. Words can't really describe how much it sucked.

Pretty sure my dad hated me 🤣

Back in the early 90s there were plenty of ratted out 2nd generation Camaros and Firebirds with backyard engine swaps for $500.
