    My first car is a 1999 Ford Taurus SE. It's in great shape, only 59,700 miles, mechanically sound, and everything works on it. Absolutely nothing wrong with it. I know, not the coolest car around, but it gets good gas mileage, and I only paid $250 (yes, $250, not $2,500) for it.

    My first car was a '49 Plymouth business coupe. I received it as a 17th birthday present and the parents paid $10.00 for it. It had 118 cu. in. of flat head six power.
    Some days it doesn't seem worth chewing through the restraints.

    Mine was a 1989 Integra with a ZC swap and some other little goodies. It was a fun little car, ended up blowing a bunch of seals in the engine and selling it for $600 bucks.

    Mine was a 1984 Dodge Prospector pick up. Silver. I loved that truck. Got it from my dad.

    The first car I bought and paid for was an 87 hyundai Excel hatch back. Worst money I ever spent.

    Now 97 voyager mini van, and 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Ralley edition. I wish it was an Evo.

    My first car was a 1974 Dodge Dart Sport. My true first 1:1 was either my 86 Ram Charger or 84 Dodge ram. I bought them both from the same guy on the same day, just don't remeber which I paid for first.

    I would love to have a Prospector, until then, I will keep driving my 84 D150. Favorite vehicle ever. Runs like a champ and is putting some serious horsepower to the ground.

    I tried being reasonable, I didn't like it.

    My first car that I paid for was a 1981 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme with a 350 Rocket. That was a good car.

    They used that "Ram" style from 1981-1993, however, The 1972-1980 D-series trucks also shared that body style. Mine also has a 318, but it has a few goodies in it. 1971 318, mopar purple cam, 340/360 "J" heads, Mickey Thompson valve covers(added like 100hp), eldebrock perfomer intake with a holley 750, full accel ignition, hooker headers dumping out into 2 flowmasters that dump just behind the cab. A727 torque flight trans built to big block spec, and a 8 3/4 rearend



    I am currently high bidder on a 1987 that is in relatively good shape

    Check out the wood grain. I need a winter beater badly and I have all the parts to fix the control arm on the truck. I was unbeliveably exicted when it was relisted after I lost out the first time by 5 dollars.

    I started off with a '70 Ford Bronco, but it was a bit unstable on ice, so I got a '69 Chevy C/10, which was a total pile, sold it and got my '70 Ford Mustang (still got it) but I can't drive that in the winter. My dad got me an '86 Ford Ranger, which I drove for a year or so, then I traded it for a '97 Mazda Protege, which I'm still driving now.

    Heres mine, I bought it 2 years ago from my cousin for $600. 1963 Ford Fairlane 2dr, 170ci 2spd auto. It's just been sitting around while I'm trying to get someone to do some work on it. Runs fine but needs new floor pans installed to pass inspection. Lol i actually don't even have my lisence yet, im 20. Heh i know, its weird that i buy a 44 year old tank, with no power ANYTHING or A/C, to be my first car. I love old cars, and i love my rust bucket


    Actually, thats the first of 4 cars ive owned already lol. I also had a 65 Chevy II that was a project race car (sold it because it was costing too much), i bought a 94 pontiac grand am for a DD for my family, then partial traded that in for our current DD which is a 98 cadillac Catera which i love.

    Well the first vehicle I bought was a 1987 Ford Econoline 250. Bought that for $200 from my neighbor. I got in trouble with that before I had my licence so I was forced to sell it. Sold it for $500 the exact way I got it. Then I got a 1994 Ford Probe GT for free from my uncle, it was a nasty little car, 5 speed, 300+hp to the rear wheels, did 120 in 4th gear. I got it and the valves were tapping, took me 4 hours to kill it. Now it is sitting in a junkyard. I gave the tow company the title and they scraped it. Now I just bought a 1978 Chevrolet Bonanza 20 for $500. I drove it home and all I needed was a carb. I ma in the process of that right now. I am 16 and this all happend in about a year. I am stuck in my moms 1992 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition. So theoretically the 78' was my first vehicle.


    If you are lazy and Dont want to read it went:
    87' Econoline
    94' Probe GT
    78' Bonanza C20

    Mine was a 1977 Chevy Monza, I payed $400 for the car back in 87. Gutted the pathetic 4 banger and dropped a 350 sb Chevy, 350 turbo w/shift kit, 12 bolt rear end 4.10:1

    I sure do miss that car!
