What was your first car?

  1. Lada Riva 1300 1989 left hand drive (steering wheel on the right! )

    I bought it together with a friend of mine for £250, not even including the spare tyre because could not afford it, LOL.

    We drove it all the way from London to the USSR for kicks!

    Ah! Those were the worry-free days.

  2. Forgot to mention my (in Calif) 1973 Chrysler Imperial LeBaron, with a 440Cu In. engine and the heaviest thing I have ever driven, barring a tank perhaps.

    Don, I have to say that's the most eclectic collection of cars I've ever seen. Were you searching for a self-identity? Have you found it?

    And how did you fit in a 1968 Sprint?:eek:

    1973 Barracuda, awesome car and I
    still have fond memories of it. For it's time
    it was a good car.
    I know the owner who bought it from me
    and he still has it, and it looks perfect and still runs good. It's probably worth $50,000 now. How many of you can say
    that about a 1970's jap-crap mobile?

  6. Still searching, as most of us are...when we "find it" - we will probably have forgotten why and what we were looking for.

    Obviously 100 pounds lighter "back in my Marine Corps days".

  7. 66 Mustang - Best stock car of the 60's.

    My Dad had an original that he bought, I believe, for $3,300.

  8. Nissan Sentra.

    Drove it 8 years until some bitch T-boned me in a parking lot of all places -- sold it to my Puerto Rican secretary's husband who was the original ride-pimper.

    The Camry lasted 10 years, donated that, and now a lovely 2000 Isuzu Trooper soon to be seized.

    LOL... the old clorox bleach under the rear tires for that added smoke effect. Brings back a few memories
