Re: Your first ride?



My first ride.



My second ride.



Current ride.

While none of the pictures are actually my car, all the colors are the same. The Integra pictured actually looks shockingly like mine looked, rims and all. Very nice thread.

And then I had one of those cassette adapters so I could plug in my pimpin' CD walkman, but it didn't have anti-skip protection so I had to hold on to it or set it in my lap when I drove around.
well, my DISCMAN had a strap on it, so I hung it from the headrest in the passenger seat. then I was even cool enough to get one of those FM transmitters so you couldn't see the wires going into the tape deck, and people parked on either side of me at the public park could blast my music right along with me.

My ride:



same color, but picture a large dent just above the front tire (one on both sides from my mom leaving her parking garage at work after going to happy hour with the girls in her office) and a trunk that was bungee corded to a spare tire to keep it shut, along with a license plate that was stuck in the top of the deck lid with drywall screws.

my headliner was fine, but after a few months my stereo stopped working altogether, so I put a boombox in the passenger seat. Also the car only had one working interior doorhandle (which I transfered to the driver's side) . I still remember getting drunk and driving it into a pond twice in the same night... and the smell of mold. The car literally had standing water in the floorboard for weeks... i didnt wear shoes to school...

Re: Your first ride?

The first car I ever had was an orange VW bus with a camper top. It was great for road trips down to Mexico or up to Big Sur. My freinds and I had a lot of great times in that car when it was running.

Some of its better features where that the windshield wipers didn't work so I tied a close line to one wiper and ran it through the small windows in the front around to the other. When it would start to rain (which wasn't to often in CA) whoever was ridding shot gun would have to pull the rope back and forth at a constant pace so you could see. This would get a little tiring after about 30 min so the shot gun seat would be a rotating position.
It came with a fridge and sink behind the passenger seat that really didn't do anything but take up space so I tore that out and just stuck a cooler there. As it turned out the hole in the floor which was there so the sink could drain turned into a mobile pisser. All you had to do was lift the carpet out of the way and you could piss on the street while driving down the road. This really came in handy when I had a bunch of my friends drinking beers on a 7hr road trip. We still had to stop for the ladies but that wasn't as bad as stoping ever 20 minutes for one of the guy's. I only paid $1300 for that car and probably another $3000 keeping it going over the years. But the memories I have in that car are priceless.

Re: Your first ride?

I also had a blue 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 with a huge dent in the back passenger door so it couldn't open. The hood and roof were rusted and like Matty's the liner on the sealing was coming off and yellow foam dust would fly ever where. The only good thing about that car was the Kenwood "pullout" CD player I put in it.


My brother and I also shared a 1977 Saab for a little while. That poor car was in great shape until my brother crashed it into the guard rail getting off the FRWY in the rain. After that there was a HUGE dent in the front and the radiator was cracked so you always had to make sure you had at least a gallon of water in the back to poor into it when it would start overheating. Which it would do about ever 30 miles.


I must say though that driving all those crappy cars growing up really helped me appreciate the last few cars Ive owned.

Re: Your first ride?

All of my friends and I drove buckets, but mine was the crapiest. I struggled to roll fly in my 1978 ORANGE Datsun (before there was a nissan) B-210. It was known as "The Pumpkin". And that piece of shit left me stranded so many times. I always had to have a case of oil in the back because that thing would burn a quart just to take off at a stop light. It had so many things replaced in it, and it still ran like shit.

I had it only 21/2 years and it finally died when I had a couple of months to go before I enlisted in the Marine Corps.

This was my first ride. It was pretty sweet being that it was 4X4. But it did have its drawbacks, such as neither of the front doors opened from the outside. You would have to open the back door reach up and open the front door. The radio was just an am/fm radio, no casset. And the thing used oil like crazy, I used to joke that when I got gas I had to fill up the oil and check the gas. On a 30 mile trip I would have to stop at least once to put oil in. Finally the drive shaft broke and it the car was not worth what it would cost to fix it so I sold to a buddy of mine that made it into a woodsing car...

Re: Your first ride?

2002 Honda Accord. The low grade version. Not the SE or the EX, like the BASIC car.

Needless to say, as a poor, suffering college student, I'm still driving it.

I've got my eyes on the 2009 Accord though. That thing looks wicked.
