Re: Post your first car!

2001 Volvo S40, 1.8i SE.


Photo isn't mine but it shows the car, I lost my photos on Photobucket of it...

Problem was it had a Mitsubushi GDi (gasoline direct injection) motor which were known to have dodgy hydraulic tappets and it started at 40k. Sounded like a diesel for a while until warm. You could replace them (1k+) but the design of the engine was flawed so it would come back so I traded it in for the WJ.

Re: Post your first car!

I have photos...but they're from the late 70's and I would have to scan them. Anyways my first car was a 59 Corvette that I got as a present when I was 14. It was a complete basket case. I spent the next 3 years learning how to do fiberglass and painting. I had it done for my senior year in HS. I was ballin back then...now not so much. LOL.

This was the exact same car my father gave me when I was 14. Told me I could do whatever with it, maybe fix it up to drive it by the time I was 16.

I sold it for $200.

Purchased my first car when I was 18... was a 1989 Mercury Cougar XR7. I had the interior redone, and put custom wheels on it in the first 6 months that I owned it. I totaled it 2 years later.

This was not mine but it is the same color and has the exact same wheels on it. Only difference was mine had a chrome grill. I miss that car so much.

Re: Post your first car!

I would really have to hunt to find a pic of it. Forest Green 1972 Bronco. Bought it in 1976 and loved it. Wish I still had that thing. Only uncool part was the "three on the tree"....

Re: Post your first car!

My first car was a fully loaded Grey 2005 Dodge Ram Laramie 1500 with the 5.7L Hemi. I got it for my 16'th birthday (Spoiled I know). Well on my way to school one rainy morning I was maneuvering a left turn when this chick in a green chevy car was trying to stop for the red light but skided onto the intersection hitting me on the rear right side of my truck as i was turning, sending me directly into a concrete pole. That completely totaled my Ram.

RIP:

Re: Post your first car!

92 Ford Escort LXE (4 door gt). Mazda drivetrain and engine.





The gauges were for this



I miss this car, it was so much fun, ran a 13.7 @ 98mph with 24" slicks, and 14.25 @ 101 all night long on crappy street tires, which for the tiny turbo at a factory 10psi (after the boost creep settled down) and crappy open diff front wheel drive I was quite pleased with it. Had alot of people scratching their head when I blew a new 6 liter gto off the line and held 2 car lenghts on him till 3/4ths track ha ha.

I got it as a entirely blue stock escort when I was 17, and this is what it was when I dismantled it when I got married ;( have I said i miss it? because I do!
