Your first car

Recommended Posts

Well today I woke up and was told that I am getting the car I've been looking at. This made me think, how do people's first cars usually go? So post about what car you had first, and what experiences you had with it.

 

 

 

I now have a '99 Ford Taurus SE, cost $1700, has 140,000 miles on it. I really am enjoying the freedom of driving.


I shall take my flock underneath my own wing, and kick them right the [bleep] out of the tree. If they were meant to fly, they won't break their necks on the concrete.
So, what is 1.111... equal to?

10/9.

 

Please don't continue.

140,000 Miles?! She's been well used!

 

And I don't have a car, still only 15. :(


My relaxation method involves a bottle of lotion, beautiful women, and partial nudity. Yes I get massages.

I got my first car 11 days ago. 1998 Honda Civic EX Coupe, 130k miles, got it for $2750, which is around 1k dollars less than the Kelly Blue Book value, simply because my step-dad knew the owner and cut me a deal. Supposedly Honda Civics last 300k+ miles.

My first car was technically a '77 Volkwagen Beetle, convertible. Unfortunately I've never driven it on the road because it needs fixing and my far more mechanically inclined dad is too busy/lazy to do it.

 

 

 

So now I have a '93 Mercury Tracer that's put me through hell. Transmission seal busted, hit a deer (not the car's fault but not mine either), slid on ice turning into my driveway and busted out the right headlight on a stone wall (again pretty much just bad luck.) My most recent adventure involved blowing a gasket, once again as I turned into my driveway, causing the steering and breaks to lock and me to roll into a ditch.

 

 

 

Car still hasn't recovered from that last one. Currently I have no vehicle.

A 96 Toyota Camry. We got it from my Aunt who barely drives(we bought it in 2007 and it only had 58k miles at the time.)

i'll be 19 in august and still dont have a car -.- , i've driven my parents cars, friends car, and work cars into like 10 different states though, so if i could actually get a car it would solve a lot of problems in my life, all my money i get goes to college (couple $K a year), or Ski patrol/EMT class (lost a solid $1.5k there in a year) so i dont have alot of spending money

93' Miata. Had to buy it myself, and I got it cheap for only $2,500. I have to pay for my own insurance too. :/

 

 

 

My Miata is a beast, 1.8L engine, rear wheel drive, and I have a new drive shaft inside. Currently saving up for a cool air intake system, trying to get more horse power without spending too much.

My first, and current, car is a '95 Ford Taurus with 180,000 miles on it. The radio (randomly) quit working last year, the air conditioner sucks (I currently use the 4-down at 55 method for air conditioning ;) ), the front passenger door lock is unresponsive to the electric lock button and the lock itself practically goes into the door when you lock it, so you have to pull the handle from the inside or use the key to unlock it, and the back, left door handle is about to stop working, I think (if you don't pull up on it right where it goes into the door, nothing happens). Oh, and there's a giant dent in the front, right fender from when I deer hit it while my cousin was driving it like 6 years ago (3 days after she got her license :lol: ).

 

 

 

Other than all that, it runs fine and is a great car for someone like myself (if I still have it after I graduate college and start making money, I think I'll stick a giant V8 in it just for the heck of it :ugeek: ). I <3: that car. :lol:

I have a car, just no license.

 

It's a 2001 chevy cavalier with a spoiler, and it still works, and doesn't need any repairs on it yet. 200 or so thousand kilometres on it. Now I just need to grow up and get a license.

I'm 21, quite time I buy a car, and I will buy it this next weekend: Toyota Echo 2002. Going to cost me 2k, but is a pretty reliable car. 255k Kilometers and 2 accidents, but still drives and looks like new (I know the actual owner of the car :P).

1993 Jeep Cherokee. Jeep Cherokees are the most reliable vehicles on the planet as long as you get one pre-1994.

My friend has a black Cavalier sitting in his driveway but he doesn't have a license. :wall:

 

 

 

For a sec, I was wondering if he was a Tiffer. 0.o

Most of it. Haven't bought anything major for like three years, so I had like 4K. Dad paid for the rest+insurance. Gonna eventually buy it off when I find a job.

I don't own a car, but my parents let me drive their lame-o Subaru wagon if I'm on a date. During the summer, however, I get to drive my (deceased) grand-father's Oldsmobile:

My family and I call it the boat, my friends the couch/pimp-mobile :thumbsup:

 

Yes, it is the worst possible car to drive. I don't dare go fast in it because the repairs my dad and I have done to it are EXTREMELY sketchy, but we keep it running since it's old enough to be a collector's item.
