Post the first car you ever owned. What model was it? How much did it cost? How long did you have it for? How does it compare to subsequent cars? Any memories with it that stand out?

It was fun to beat on but my mid 2000's fwd shitbox is better as a DD.
Hundreds of redlines a day and 5 hours of hooning and off roading a day was fun too.

Free, my dad and I shared it

I think we had it for about 2 years before we got into an accident and it was totalled.

Yea all the ones were I would drive around my football buddies and myself to anywhere we needed because of all the room.

>first car
1994 Toyota Sedan
it was 5 years old at the time and I paid 900 bucks for it, which for a 17 year old is a lot of money.
>how long did you have it for
3 years until I just had to admit defeat. It was a real shitbox.
>how does it compare to subsequent cars
I've learned to hold out and invest in superior cars since then. It is easily the worst car I've ever owned.
>any memories that stand out
I hit a kid on a skateboard in my neighborhood once. I wasn't going very fast but I thought I hurt him really badly. He got up, said sorry (it was definitely his fault) and got back on his board. I also drove to San Jose from Phoenix by myself (no friends) on the last day of high school. Didn't tell anybody, just did it. Dad was pissed when I got back but it was worth it.

07 3 door yaris, $5000, 6 years and counting
it's a boring, falling apart, piece of shit due to vandalism and me not giving a shit,
but it costs next to nothing to keep and is reliable as hell so it's a perfect winter and work beater and i will hold onto it until it's no longer cheap and reliable

I lived in a Jewish area so I loved beating Audis at the light and scions on the mountain roads.

I learned so much from that car. Bought it as a heap for $100. Rebuilt the engine, changed fluids, new clutch, used tank, interior and seats from a salvage some guy was parting out in the penny pincher. got all the door and trunk seals off the salvage to.

It was a beat to hell piece of shit that I fixed up and hooned around the county with when I was in high school. Every car I've had after it has been an upgrade, but none yielded the same feeling of freedom one gets from their first car.

I actually was able to directly reapply some of what I learned from working on it later. My third car was a '91 Mustang GT 25th. Got it w/ no motor or gearbox and decided to go with a 351c. Best worst idea ever.

1985 Dodge 600es
$1500 in 1993
Sold for $300 in 2002 when the ECM finally gave out completely
It was a good car and I wish I'd understood more about turbochargers back then as I do now. I would probably have considered buying another if it had ever been available in manual
Tons of memories of course, lots of smoking weed and getting BJs on warm summer nights

1992 Chevy Lumina z34

I miss the car, but I didn't miss the $250 a month insurance. lol

>I loved beating off Audi drivers in the mountains

>first car
27 and still have yet to own one but I did drive my moms car to get my license and have driven it maybe 10!times since. It's a minivan, honestly not sure of the brand.
no idea

I actually drove my younger brother's car the other day, it was a sedan and it felt like a smoother ride
>any memories that stand out
I ran a red my first time ever on the main road. In general, I remember how exhilirating it was to drive when I was first learning, and thinking how great it would be to be able to take quiet drives once I moved out, got a job and my own car (none of which I did).

This board is torture, honestly.

Driving from Spokane to Austin that first summer. Fun as hell, although spent a ton on gas.

What is stopping you from getting a job, buying a car and movin out?

1999 Mustang V6 5-speed. I bought it with 85k in June of 2007 bone stock needing tires, a window motor, and brakes for $1800. I replaced the window motor and did all 4 pads and rotors (just to learn how to do them) and then got the wheels, tires, and headlights with ~500 miles on them from some kid who was in deep shit for stealing his dads credit card lol. I paid $750 for everything. I traded the car in September with 93k and got $6500 for it somehow.

oh also I bought this car in downtown Milwaukee and lived in Madison. I had never driven a manual in my life so getting out of the city was fun but by the time I made the 90 mile journey home I had it down pretty well. but I was a weenie and didn't want to drive it in the snow so I traded it for a 2005 Celica GT-S.

1985 Ford EXP (5-speed, power-nothing, no A/C) but in a different, uglier color. 0-60 in less than an hour but outstanding MPG, especially for a high-school kid in the 80's who drove all the time. I still kinda miss it, though. You never fall out of love with your first car...

>I think we had it for about 2 years before I got into an accident

Still got robbed of your precious shekels.

>cosmic brownies
my nig

I used to deliver those
when it snowed we lined the rear of the van with those boxes to add traction, and you had to keep them on the floor and not stack them or they made the van roll.
they're edible bricks

Ford Tempo Sport GL 2-door. It made a whopping 100 HP and was pigfat, but man I had some great times in that car. Was also a manual so I learned how to drive the right way. I eventually traded it in on a Festiva (why) but I'll always have a spot in my heart for that Tempo.

>How does it compare?
my only car so i don't know but ive driven all the cars owned by family members and i honestly like driving mine the most even though theirs are newer and faster and "nicer". probably because im used to it or because i keep it cleaner than any of them do or maybe because its the only stick ive driven. they all drive automatics

The lack of everything (power steering, traction control, airbags, doors thicker than paper, stereo, AC) made it a ton of fun.
You had to use a choke in the winter, often go full throttle to keep up with traffic, and cornering at normal traffic speeds was frightening on its thin motorcycle tires
At some point the window wouldn't close without stopping, so I always drove with open windows
Then the brakes failed downhill and only the engine and the emergency brake saved me
That's when I had it crushed
I never took a picture and regret that deeply


Nissan Stagea RS4
5.2k NZD
A year
No car I ever own will suck gas like that prostitute could. I am to blame for the fuel crisis in the future.
Only painful memories concerning the condition it parted my ownership in. I think it was the last bone-stock, full-option RS4 left in NZ and I got it for a fucking bargain.

What year model? The one that shares r33/r34 bits?

1966 Volvo L3314N

About $3500, sold it for a bit over $5000 a few months later as it then had new tires, a few fixed issues and new shocks

Its... well, you can probably understand that its uncomparable

Technically I had my Cherokee first, but first car I bought myself was an 89 240sx with a s14 ka swap with cams and forged internals but no turbo (P.O. wanted to keep it for his car). Paid 2k in 2011.
Still have it but it is torn down to just the shell currently. Stole all of the good parts to put on my s13 vert summer day cruiser car. Plan to get it going again with a better motor after I get the vert done and redo all the suspension on its shell.
It was the most fun vehicle in my small group of high school friends so we used to pile into it then go tear around the IL/MO back roads all night in the summer. Never wrecked or spun surprisingly, but a wheel did fall off as I came to a stop once not even 10 minutes after some spirited driving topping around 120ish. Probably the closest I had come to dying.

WCN34, yeah. Unfortunately it was the series 1 RB25DET, but I didn't own it long enough to do any moneying aside from filling the tank every single week.

1998 v6 passat 2.8 5speed manuel 218k miles
$1650 cash
Bought it after the first couple months I had my first job. Sold it a year later around 235k miles for $800 with some body damage
Honestly the best car ive had to date, fastest car ive had to date aswell I miss that thing

I've only owned two cars. I still have the first, owned the second for 2 weeks before I sold it.

Anyways, here's my first

>My mom bought it brand new for 25k in Monopoly money
>Fast forward to 2016

>Flawless condition, proper maintenance done, top spec minus Navi, leather seats, sunroof, the whole shebang
>Can keep insurance under her, so cheaper for me
>Sells for 9-10k used
>Got it for 6k

I've put 40,000km on it in 14 months since I've owned it. Still running great. Clean as a whistle.

Went on my first date in that car shortly after getting it.

5.3? If so good mpg and reliable motor. But fuck all for power.

1989 Honda Civic and I got it when I turned 16 in 2000, paid $1500 for it. It lasted tell 2003, it blew a head gasket. Despite me only owning it for 3 years, I still have fond memories of the car simply because it was my first car.

>Ford P100
>Cost 5000 dkr, about 750 dollars
>Had it for 3 years. Cops took the numberplates because i hadn't paid the half-yearly registration fee. Sold it to a friend who owned another P100, he chopped it up and used it for parts.
>It had no exhaust pipe. For 3 years i drove around in that piece of shit and all i could hear was brraaaaaaaaaaa. Had no radio either.
>Got t-boned by a shitskin in a nissan sunny. The nissans front was destroyed and it had to be towed. The P100 got a huge dent in the b-pillar, but i was able to drive on. Didn't leave insurance details so i never heard anything about it

2001 Seat Leon 1.6 16S Stella 105hp
something like 7 or 9 months

I never liked those brownies.

Use to share a car with the mother, got kicked out. moved on in live, started working ect.
Still 18, and looking to buy my first car, whats the reliability upkeep cost of a 2010 bmw e90? around 60-70000 miles? worth it as a first car? cost isnt to much of an issue, but dont want it to be outrageously expensive on upkeep. It will be bought cash, so im not leasing it or any of that.

Last car was a 2016 kia sportage 1.7L manual.

>Still broken, needs a new motor

>First Car

>How does it compare?
I loved it, 125hp, less then 1000kg and no ESP. Beat much stronger cars on curvy roads
>stand out memories
Racing through the mountainroads at night on the weekends

I used to, but for some reason i hate them now.

Maybe last time i ate an expired one or something.

Either way, id rather just not eat it ever again.

Especially when i know what a real brownie should taste like.

You're gross you complete faggot

>91 Honda Prelude

had to put a quart+ in a week, the radiator blew, the master cylinder had to be replaced, bald tires that would send you into the intersection in the rain. the engine seized the day I graduated high school just as I pulled in the lot to park. Never saw it again after it was towed. A total piece of shit, but I would still get another prelude, something about them thats fun.

99 escort wagon

Lasted a few months only until the trans gave out

Odd part was I was young and it was my first car, when I first got it I washed it, cleaned it out, and wasn't satisfied, I unbolted all the seats, covers, dash and cleaned the whole car up and washed the interior. I used to wrench on cars a lot when I was younger, not so much anymore...

>1998 Subaru Legacy GT
>Still have it, 4.5 years now
>Best in class

My first car was a 1996 Nissan Quest.

Not a terrible first car, by and by. It was big enough to make me learn the car's dimensions quickly, and the torquey-if-underpowered engine made it have enough punch that it wasn't left completely in the dust, but not enough power to get into any real trouble.

Plus it was big enough for me to carry any and all of my friends if we wanted to go somewhere.

The windows started falling off, and we ended up junking it after it barely limped it's way to like 170k miles. Engine was fine, for what it's worth, but the suspension had long since gone, it needed new wheels, a new radiator, a new AC condenser, and a rear window, the sunroof, and the windsheild all had to be replaced. At that cost to get it in good running order again, we just ended up buying an old Merc E300 for about $1000 less than fixing it would have been. (The merc was also a killer deal, and a diesel, which helped depress the price)

Fuck off faggot

also the brake rotors were badly warped when we did her in.

most memorable are the dope ass drifts around roundabouts 'we' did and that one time i didnt look and some audi wrecked my door (my fault)

Yo wtf man I love these. Now I'll be paranoid

92 GSI Geo Storm. Had it for like 4 years. Cost $600 and ran until after I sold it with no real work done to it other than normal maintenance. It was a great car.

Mine was a teal color. It was slow but had good mpg.

The shitbox simply not picking up speed whenever it rained. Especially fun on motorways. RPM's went up but speed did not. Horrible. Once we spraypainted the thing full of bad jokes and drove it around town on a beautiful summer evening. The best memory there is.

All together, it was a dreadful car. But it had like 600k km on the clock and it was almost 30 years old... A summer car it was meant to be and a summer car it was. Rust in pieces, mighty Nigger Harvester.

I love seeing people who occasionally track their dailys

White '86 MR2. Cost me £2100 and another £1500 to insure it.
Only had it 6 months before I got hit head on while waiting to make a junction.
Second/current car is a 2003 MR2 so they stack up pretty evenly. Gotta say the AW11 is the more comfortable out of them for long drives though.
Besides the crash? Taking a girl out for a drive after a Halloween party and then cruising back to her place through thick fog with Kavinsky's Outrun in the CD player.
Learning to left foot brake and left foot throttle on the 200+ mile motorway journey when I got bored.
On the way back from that holiday we stopped off at the Haynes Motor Museum and going through a village I got a nod off of an E-Type driver.

Was completely outclassed by stripped out hondas. And Imma shite driver.

Alo blew a shock going around the fastest corner on the track, leading to a hideous high-speed aw-shit-were-hitting-the-barrier-at-120kph spin. The sort that really fucks your confidence and makes you not want to go back out and break it because you need to go to work Monday.

Thinking of replacing it with a new Mx-5 because age is not being kind.

1990 Accord LX
Had it for about 3 months until I put it in a ditch and bent the frame, being an idiot at 17 was fun.
It was better than my current car even though it had rust and was older.
Replacing the entire interior with one from another accord is what stands out the most.

should i get this as first car? excuse the language

I love those too, I'd like to own one someday, why was it so expensive? Was this close to it being new?

Driving to the beach with my gf and cruising up HWY 1, magical.

I bought a 87 944S, with a s2 swap in it when I was 19. I bought it before the price for them skyrocketed for 3.5k and a 600 dollar Jackson guitar as a trade. It had 80k miles when I bought it, lasted me 6 years as a daily driver till the water pump died and I wasn't interested in fixing it. I miss it more than any ex ever though...I watched the kid I sold it to burn up the clutch putting it on the back of a trailer. Made me so sad. I still remember sliding around corners and midnight drives with my third shift bros in their miatas and rx8s

2005 Avalanche LS
Free. My dad bought it new and pawned it off to me when I got my license. Worth 7k now.
Since I was 16
I haven't owned another car but I've driven a few. Feels sluggish, slow, and sloppy handling but it's a truck. It has been reliable as fuck and I do all the work myself on it. No dents no scratches no nothing.
Bed swimming pool, prom, and general asshatery on the road. I drive it like a sports car.

that's a man's vehicle right there
