Your first ride?
 
Unlike Dmek's kids (spoiled rich mofos;)), most of us had pretty shitty first cars. Post pics of your first ride here and give a description of all the "features".

[url=http://www.stationwagon.com/gallery/1986_Pontiac_Sunbird.html]1986 Pontiac Sunbird station wagon[/url] (same one as the pic in the "i'm getting sued thread). This wasn't the actual car but you get the idea.

LOL nice thread

I rocked a [URL="http://www.intramarkt.nl/makethumb.php?pic=uplimg/mb100006_972698019_mainpic.img&w=500&sq=Y"]'79 Oldsmobile Tornado [/URL]for my first ride.

My 2nd wasn't much better, a [URL="http://www.imperialclub.com/Articles/Exner/Jr/1979GrandMarquis.jpg"]'79 Mercury Grand Marquis[/URL].

The Merc was a horrible lime green, you could see me coming from a mile away.

Both of them could really fly though.

My first ride was a convertible. I souped it up, 22 inch "gold" plated rims. Name engraved in the seat. Great mileage

:)

Seriously though, Honda Accord. Served me well for 14 years and then just totally crapped out on me.

I rolled in a '85 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

[url]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8c/89-90_Oldsmobile_98.jpg[/url]

Mine was gold though because I was such a pimp.

It had sagging ceiling fabric on the inside.
No AC.
A rockin' electronic dashboard that was completely possessed. Sometimes it wouldn't even turn on and others the gas meter would show two bars(pretty low) and then 4 bars(pretty high). It all depended on the grade.
The bad boy did have a smokin' motor and was tank though.

My Grand Marquis also had the sagging ceiling fabric. I ended up ripping it down and I constantly had foam crumbs falling on me.

The best part though was the stereo I installed myself. The stereo was too small for the slot so I crammed a bunch of old towels under it to prop it up. 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.

Ladies adored me, haters hated on me.

I drove around my sister's Geo Storm while she was in college.
This isn't my car, but it did look just like this, same color and everything :vomit::

When I turned 17 my parents gave me this beauty (again, not actually my car). A 1983 navy blue Chevy Blazer with rally wheels.

I was born in late 1982, so there is a very good chance that my car was actually older than me.
I loved that thing, until it decided that it didn't like to start if it was under 55 degrees outside.

65 Mustang!

Sounds awesome but it was ugly!

I got it for $1000. It ran very well and there was no physical damage to the outside of the car. Unfortunately it was an ugly primer color. The front seats leaned so far back I had to put 5 gallon buckets behind them to keep them upright. It had a crappy radio which would fallout if you floored it.

God I miss that car!

I think everybody had the sagging fabric. Its amazing with all the technology they couldn't make a glue strong enough to hold cloth.

Probably the best feature mine had was after driving it for a while, if you shut it off, it wouldn't start for about 30 minutes. It had something to do with how hot it ran and the starter seized up I think. One of the most embarrassing moments with it was when I went to trade it in to get something else, I parked at the end of the lot. I was about 200 yards away from the sales office and the guy said " Just drive it right up here and I'll take a look at it." When I went back to get the car, of course it wouldn't start.

I wish mine looked that good. My interior was tore up. The cardboard cover that sat over spare tire well was destroyed. The vehicle had some interior water damage. It was white, but looked like a dalmation because of all of the chips in the paint.

Good thing I played football because my ride wasn't picking up any women.

I paid $500 for it in 1995 and managed to pass vehicle inspections.....barely.

I had a navy blue 1988 Chevy Cavalier coupe. Rusted wheelwells, cut out the droopy headliner (yellow fuzz everywhere), horrible seat frame (replaced the driver's seat 3 times) and you had to really put pressure on the gas pedal for it to go anywhere. It was ugly as sin, but I loved it because it was mine. Parents and I split the $1000 price tag...

Had the car a little over 2 years until a woman coming home from a Xmas party decided to t-bone me with 2 friends in the car. Did a 180 and hit another car in the process.She then proceeded to take the ticket to court to enter a guilty with explanation plea to get some of the points taken off. My buddy, who was in the back seat, messed up his back and was in rehab for over a year. We told our side of the story to the judge, and the judge said there was no way he could lessen the penalty with someone who was injured by the accident...

Of course mine was burgundy in color!
