What was your first car, Veeky Forums? And did daddy buy it for you, or did you earn the money to pay for it yourself?
What was your first car, Veeky Forums? And did daddy buy it for you, or did you earn the...
My first car is a Volvo 940 turbo wagon.
Bought It with my hard earned monies.
Still drive in it.
My first car was a 1991 Nissan NX2000. I paid for it myself with money I saved since I was a little kid. It was great and I loved it, but it started building up problems and is pretty unreliable now. It's pretty sad because it's been sitting in my yard ever since I bought my RSX. I don't want to let it rot away, but it's going to be difficult to sell with its slipping transmission.
First car was a 83 944, gave my uncle 2k and he bought it for me (2005).
First legal car '96 Accord, bought for 5k, had 90k miles in 2011. Convetered it to manual in 13'.sold it as a rolling chassis + rollcage & log books in 14.
2005 Acura RSX base manual.
My mom bought it for me new when I was 15-1/2, she wrote a check for it outright (she's a USAF colonel pilot).
I got a job the week I turned 16, with a couple mods I took it from 16.6s at the 1320 to 15.4. Catless race header, solid motor mounts, hot air intake, OEM type-S catback.
2 years later (2007) I went off to michigan for college and traded up to an STi. I haven't gone FWD since.
first car was an 2001 Eclipse GS with a rebuilt upper engine
Father bought me it when I was 17 for college for $3000
Drove the shit out of it for two years and then bought myself a new car
My dad's '84 4runner, it was decaying from sitting in the driveway for a few years so he did fix it up in time for my 16th birthday. I still drive it 5 years later.
First car was a 95 Camry which mom(dad cheated on mom with a lady in his company) helped me buy it. Later when I got stable enough in life, I bought her a new Mazda 3 and right now I have a 2013 Mazda 6.
my first car was a 2005 chevy cobalt, it was just passed down from my mother to me when she got a ford fiesta. i still drive it, take great care of it. i'd prefer something with more personality but i'm still saving up yet again after moving
my first car was a 2002 concorde limited that my grandfather gave to me after buying a new car
the only reason he gave it to me is because i needed a means of transportation so i could get to and from work
'89 Acura Legend, ~200k miles
car belonged to my brother's friend
he graduated and was leaving the country for work, had plans to junk the car
brother ended up getting the title

What the fuck
Is that a SLP or a Firehawk?
This is going to be one of those "spoiled brats didn't earn X" threads where poorfags get jealous and unreasonably mad, isn't it?
25th anniversary Trans Am
For $3? Lucky fucker, you're uncle was a total bro
How many miles? Manual?
My parents gave me A 1998 Ford explorer that they bought a month before I was born.
The first car that actually had my name on the title is a 1995 mustang
Tfw you're the reason your parents sold their Miata
Fist car my mother matched what I saved to buy it and it was her's until I payed the other half
Second car I bought myself
It has 145k, sadly not manual. I put in a B&M ratchet shifter to make it a little more fun, would still want it in manual though
Very nice and still a good price, glad your uncle wasn't a dick about it
'13 Focus. Mommy bought it for me
still have it, it was fun to drive. 120k miles on it but sadly some fucking kid ran out on the road and I wrecked it into a curb. oil pan is fucked up and front wheel is disconnected from the axis. Now driving a 2005 accord and I fucking hate it
1986 5.0 Mustang. Man, I thought I was cool.
Paid for it when I was 15 with money I earned at my ranch.
1992 Acura Integra RS with the 1.8L DOHC 5SP Manual.
The dealer tricked it out when it was originally sold with a non factory moon roof and cruise. Neither worked reliably.
I bought the car myself and loved it for seven years. It was hit by a California woman in a Tahoe while parked at a store. She tried to drive away but had the front left wheel fall off after plowing into my car.
Clean the valve body and flush the tranny fluid good, fgt
06 Chevy Cobalt LT, It was my grandpas beater car. He mostly rode his motorcycle till he died, had been neglected for 2 years and stolen once, driven to Colorado where it broke down. Towed back to Texas then I managed to get it back to full working condition before I drove it in to a ravine.

'99 Camaro Z28.
Bought it myself. Had a small loan for taxes and registration, which I paid back.
1999 Ford F150 Lariat Package
Only paid my year savings on it from my job at 17. Had it for 4 years until I let my sister in law drive it to use the bed to haul something (a small load of groceries). Having never driven anything bigger than a Corolla in her life, she completely demolished my truck by hitting colliding into other people infront of her since she cant see over the hood for being short as shit.
Golf Mk3 Bon Jovi for 800 bucks with a broken starter and rusty front panel, easy replaced
Me too, I had the sedan. Paid five hundred smackaroos for it
"Slipping" isn't the best way to put it. 1st gear is fucked so it slams into second with a fury. No one is going to buy it.
03 malibu. Bought it after working 30 hours a week during high school
some poorfag would.
1978 Firebird. Bought it myself with no idea of how car buying worked. Got scammed.

'86 Ford Tempo coupe Sport (yes, they made "sport" Tempos). It was actually a decent car. I think my parents might have put a little down payment on it but I made the monthlies.
Got a wrecked Crown vic for $400, they paid for it but I had to do the repairs.
'85 Supra 2nd gen 5 speed.
Dad's gift. I didn't really appreciate it until it was too late and the car shit itself. Later on I got a '94 Civic and currently a '03 GTI. Both bought with my own money.
First car was a Geo Storm. Bought it for $200. Needed new injectors, two adjacent cylinders weren't holding compression (gasket obviously), alternator was so bad I couldn't turn it by hand, ground to engine had rotted off... made it my project to restored it before I even got my license.
Drove that shit box down my parents 50 meter driveway so many times as I improved it over time.
Turned 16, got license, and finally got to put her on the road. Had her purring like she was new.
It would have been nice if my father had any mechanical experience at all, but he didn't, had to learn from books, and mostly got by with using my fathers carpentry tools in a make-shift fashion.
Fast forward to today, I work for Mercedes Benz. I would have loved to have these tools back then.
Paid for the car, parts, repairs and gas myself. Dad helps with insurance though.
First car was a 2006 Evo back in 2009.
Parents paid for gas, the car, and insurance.
'05 G35 sedan in '12 (still my daily)
I paid for a third of the car, but my parents covered insurance and gas
'91 Toyota Celica ST, bought it myself in 2001.
First car was a volvo 242 turbo, got it from my grandfather who bought it new and later his eyesight took a turn for the worse so he had no need for the car anymore.
My first car was an 03 Honda Element, mom got a new vehicle and I was 16 or so at the time. I paid for the gas and insurance but the car was already paid off. Now I'm working on my own 05 Jeep Liberty. Honestly, the only reason I got rid of it was an accident I got into with it and it was simply getting too expensive to repair.
1991 ford corsair,
Dad bought it for me and my sister, $500 in 2006
90 Camry (this was 1995) Salesman's car from my dad's business that was being put out to pasture with close to 200k. Leaked oil, badly. Had it about 2 years until I bought my own vehicle - a 92 Rodeo.
1990 Isuzu pick up truck (not the pup, that was cooler). Paid $1600 and had for 3 months before I sold it and bought a Ford Escort GT.
It was a Honda accord 1994 that I brought myself but I never got to actually use it as a daily because it was a piece of shit that needed to get fixed constantly. Always throwing $$$ at it for shitty repairs. Fuck that car.
A 2010 Camaro. I was a senior in high school, and I was really into the live-action Transformers movies. My parents were rich enough to get me the car. All my friends were pretty jealous, and it got me my first girlfriend.
Damn. Thats pretty sad.
How is that sad?
96 Sierra 1500 I bought myself at 19 for $1400, still driving it today at 23. I keep wanting to have work done on it but they're so cheap I have a hard time justifying the cost.
Your car got you the girlfriend. Not you.
And being into transformers is the most turbo form of autism.
I think it's more sad he was really into the live action Transformer movies.
Yea, I made that point
Well I mean, we were together for the next 3 years so I guess she liked me enough for who I was to stay with me for that long.
And besides, the first Transformers is a solid movie.
Or she didn't realize that it was your parents who were rich. Not you.
My first car was a truck.
95 gmc Sonoma my dad bought from a nun with low as fuck miles. Gave it to me and said I will be paying for insurance and maintenance.
When it dies he told me he wouldn't be buying me a new car so make sure it doesn't shit the bed.
Well, I was living with my parents the whole time. So really, their wealth transitions onto me.
'92 Dodge Spirit.
I earned the money, mom was the one who found it and made the actual purchase.
It was a good first car. Plenty of space, plenty of power, and it was cheap as dirt.
86 tercel jesse pinkman edition, dad made me buy it off him for $600
My first car was a 1972 VW super beetle. I paid $800 for it with my money and help from my dad on parts and working on it. He was stoked that I asked for his help and it ended up pretty much becoming his car
A '94 Tercel. My dad actually bought it for me cause im so spoiled. Actually my parents never gave me an allowance or paid me for any work, so by the time i got a job (convienently too far for a bike) my dad was forced to drive me to work and caved on a true pussy magnet.
Dark green with a cracked flywheel, got honked at constantly because it took 20 seconds to go from 0 to 20 mph.
Sold it for a 95 Ranger that i still drive a fucking decade later because it wont die even after 330k.
1968 Opel Kadet
Bought it used and put a ton of miles on it going up and down the east coast (speedo cable snapped shortly after buying it so never knew how far or fast I went). Took a beating and kept on going until pic somewhat related
96 Pontiac Firebird WS6, father bought it for me for 8 grand 2 years ago. Still drive it.
First car was a 97 rl. Died just before New Years. My dad bought it used in 2001 both my sisters drove it in hs and than I assumed possession when I turned 16. Amazing car I was very sad to see it go.
Are you my dad?
I had a 2003 auto RSX. I loved that car, I had it for a year. One day my brother (who is a notoriously bad driver) crashed his car, so I let him borrow mine while his was in the shop because he had a job and I didn't. The next day he totaled it, that day was also the day that I knocked somebody out for the first time
How long before you had to sell it because major mechanical issues were lurking?
A 2000 Mazda Millenia. My mother had bought it from a family friend for me as a first car for $800. It had frame damage, the abs was defunct, huge dent on the rear driverside panel, the steering was a mess, you'd have to have the wheel turned 20degrees to the left to keep the car straight, but it was my baby. I loved it and it was a great car to learn to drive in. I ended up wrecking it when i rear-ended a commercial van in manhattan, his rear bumper had barely any damage and the entire front end of my millenia was pushed into the driversfront wheelwell. Was a good trashbanger and im grateful for having learned to drive in it.
Why do spoiled shits always crash their cars more often than poorfags? Those parents should given their kids a car with automatic braking and distance keeping, as well as lane assist, in stead of fast huge sedans they can't handle.
dented to shit
literal bucket of bolts
$800 from a family friend
Spotted the melanin enriched fella
they take their free cars for granted, and they never learn how to drive them in a non-autistic fashion, as daddy will always buy them another one
You should keep special edition cars as OEM as possible. Will sell for a lot of money later.
First 940 Guy here. Bought mine for 4000 Eurodollars with buckets of options in good condition.
I was alsof wondering how much car you would get for 600 smackaroos.
mate I have a 97 e36 as well in the same colour, it was my dad's but he's given it to me.
I haven't learned to drive yet but it'll be my first car when I do.
my dad bought it a week after I was born so it's pretty close to my heart
A brand new Corolla, was only on my temps at the time. Yes Daddy paid for it. I wanted a Mazda3 :(.
1995 Bonneville. Dad got it from a family friend for $50. At one point the subframe rusted out and fell off the car. Took out the steering column and I drove into a ditch.
Cut out some metal plates to patch the rust holes and used old sockets to replace the rotted bushings. Drove it like that for another 4 months before we got rid of it.
Pic related after the subframe fell off.
1994 Chevrolet Corisca for €550 of my own money
Don't have a photo right now but in this color
E36 autotragic, me dad hand it down to me and had some electrical problems
2004 grand am gt
Worked my ass off at a Jet's Pizza for a year. My dad helped me pay for insurance for the first few years as long as i didnt get tickets
My Grandmother's 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. Damn thing was falling apart. Rats chewed up all the wires leaving a wonky as fuck computer, a fucked up ABS and front headlights not working properly. Just as problems started popping up one after another, some guy totaled it. Since it was his fault I got a decent amount of money and my Dad got me a 2004 Jetta with the little money my insurance gave me. This was back when I knew jack shit about cars while my Dad and brother worked on them plenty.
I would rather a Civic or a Camry since the damn thing leaves me stranded on my commute at least once a month from a coolant leak but at least my Dad specializes in VWs so it's not too bad to maintain my shitbox.
1995 Infiniti G20
it was my grandmothers car first, then my drunk aunts, and was given to me for free since they considered it to be on its deathbed (circa 2009). I made it last to 2013 with an auto tranny that was completely and utterly fucked because of lol maintenance by said drunk aunt;
only 103k miles ;-;
My own hard earned money
My first car was a Jeep Wrangler 4.0 Sahara Edition.
i bought it with cash from my mom and a the compensation i got because some drunk driver killed my dad
96 Ford Contour
was a hand-me-down from one of the clients my mom works for (she's a housekeeper)
Just bought an 89 Mustang with half my money and half from my grandmother
You're a lucky kid. Take care of her.
500 smackaroo guy here. Car was in good shape aesthetically: glass intact, paint still had clearcoat. But the devil lay beneath the hood. She burned about a quart of oil every few weeks, leaked coolant from somewhere onto the exhaust manifold so it always smelled. Every cold start was a battle between the temp sensor and the oxygen sensor for control of the mixture, and there were intermittent electrical issues, mostly bad grounds. Rust was a big issue as well, the subframe looked suspicious and the passenger side footwell had a hole.
a Z24 Cavalier with the stock supercharger.
Bought it from a lady on the street for 500 dollars, said her daughter didnt want it as was trying to get rid of it.
2008 outback. Purchased two years ago. Have put 31k km on it. It has its moments.
81 280zx turbo for $800,bought it myself, was cool but slow as fuck since all 81's were auto only.
Got it from my grandpa when he could no longer drive. In a sense daddy bought it for me, but it later had to be sold for family financial reasons.
Looking back, that must have sucked so much, selling your dad's truck given to your son to pay the bills for a few months.
I DD'd my dad's 2007 Avalon after he got a new job with a company car. I never called it mine and now my brother drives it. I drove it for my senior year of HS and my one year of college before dropping out to get a trade apprenticeship. For that, I purchased my own car, a 2008 Ford Ranger, with my own money.
1988 Honda Prelude Si 5spd Red/Black. Slow as piss but handled well enough.
Got 5k bucks in insurance for when i was hit by a car at 17yo, so i'm gonna buy it myself with this money
Will be a 2002 Clio 2, manual, diesel
I bought it myself, unregistered and in need of work.
Been working on it and it's just about ready for registration, so it's still unregistered. However I've been reading up on the engine (7M-GE) and they're apparently a huge money sink due to major problems with head gaskets and warped everything. I've lost all motivation for the thing due to my unhealthy paranoia and I'm looking to buy another car within the next sixth months and hopefully move on the first car ASAP, I bought it really cheap so I'll be able to make profit on the thing at least.
Still don't know what I'll want to replace the thing though, I still want to power and torque the thing had but I'm having trouble finding it.
yes, now stop being such a fag son
Bought a 400$ cb7 coupe at 12 and kept it at an abandoned warehouse where i worked on it. Tought myself stick and brought it to school sometimes to show off and everyone thought i was the shit. Sold it for 600$ and sex with the dudes girlfriend cause he couldn't pay me all 700.
1996 Chevy S10 grandparents let me use it. Now i have 2010 Fusion
Paid for with dat sweet student loan cash.
1987 hyundai excel.
little egg-shaped piece of shit. it was even white.
I bought it from my brother (who ripped me off on it)
it dropped a cylinder after months of headaches and I left it abandoned behind a best buy. or maybe it was a circuit city.
First car was a 1998 Saturn SL1. Payed 500$ for it and it was the beginning of a my passion for car.
Fuck I hate those kids who start with new paid cars by dad and mom.
A 2001 Mustang GT with a crack in the manifold causing it to bleed coolant and overheat. Only got it last year for 2 grand and I live in a winter hellscape
Bought all myself but I think I used some of my enlistment bonus on it
you're fucking retarded
Got it for free
Paid for some repairs
Volvo 745 GL, I bought it with my own money
2007 Hummer H2 SUT in 2010, my dad was having a mid life crisis a couple years back and decided he hated the thing, decided to give it to me. Shitty first car; it was too big, horrible on gas, and I felt like a douche. Got me girls tho.
(My dad got a Jaguar XKR after that. Fuckin richfag.)
2001 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner SR5
did daddy buy it
My dad had bought a new Tundra a year prior, so the Tacoma sat in the driveway for a solid year before he gave it to me.
Late 80s rusted out stationwagon that my parents had sitting around. I sold it two years later for 300 bucks and got an focus.
98 daewoo tico,bought ffor 250$, had it for a year, the transmission has shat itself today and there is no point to replace it due to costs
I got it for free but then again I had to put easily 5k worth of repair into it before I could even drive it.
My first car was a Kia Rio. I didn't even own it, I just drove it when my dad wasn't driving it. He "gave" it to me for while I was in college, but then when my brother needed a car he took it back when I had the money to buy my own. The first I actually owned was a 3-series.
My first car was a Datun 1600J, but with a bright yellow paint. It was from my brother.
When you're 19 retarded stuff seems like a good idea at the time.
VW Golf Mk4 with a VR6.
Parents helped but I payed for most of it.
Sold the car after 4 years.
student loan cash
kek, I did the same thing too
I was such a fucking idiot
