I drove a 2001 TJ for a few years before my G5. Loved that jeep to death!

The things was a pig for gas though! I could barely afford to run that beast!

Yeah, that's one of the reasons I really don't drive it a whole lot. For the most part, I drive my parents' '04 Grand Cherokee.

1984 Camaro

Purchased for $200 from my Dad's friend in '91. Was stolen and recovered, then sat in the guy's driveway for a few years. Needed a battery, tires, oil change/tune-up, and a steering column. Ran good for a while, then encountered all manner of issues, one after another. Had it for about 5 yrs.

The most sublime hunk of scrap that I've ever owned. :BANG_HEAD:

What I really miss was that it only took $18 to fill up an 18 gallon tank...
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

MISP preferred, but will consider opened NM/Complete, especially for older figures. Lots of TFs for trade! Please PM any inquiries, serious interest only!

My 1st was an '83 Plymouth Horizon. It was small enough & lightweight so it would only take myself & maybe 2 other friends to pick it up & move it if mine was in the way or parked cockeyed! On the brighter side, it would only take about $5-7 to fill the tank in '96/97 when gas was still fluctuating between the 'ever-so-high" 73 cents to 0.95/gallon. It was a POS car indeed though. My uncle GAVE it to me to get it out of his driveway then put on the title I paid him $11 for it. Their was no floorboard so another uncle put in a fiberglass floor for me. I had to buy a battery for it because it didn't have on in it. Had a gas leak that I didn't get fixed for a month and a half then 3 weeks later the clutch went out. The shop I left it with was SO FAR BEHIND I didn't get it back for 2 1/2 months! When I fixed the muffler the following year, it had that hard engine "ROAR" that others in fancier cars were paying to have. The gear linkage broke through via rust a few months later then a month after that, a lady going 53 in a 30 ran a 4way stop & collided with my front end, thus ending the Horizon's run of awesomeness!!! It was sad & I still have the shoulder pains from my seatbelt pulling extratight so fast. Poor fella!!! I miss that car!
Look for me on Facebook (I always could use new "nerd" friends to talk TF's with) http://www.facebook.com/pkilcline80

I'm proud to be the owner of an Acura TSX '06, the Car and Driver Car of the Year for 2006. And, BTW, sorry to brag but yes this was my first car!

My first car is still my current daily driver. 1996 Chevrolet Lumina, nothing like classic American Muscle. 170K+ miles and running strong!

My first car was a 1990 5Dr Vauxhall Nova, then I had a '89 Ford Fiesta XR2i(I swear that car was possessed). After that I had a succession of Vauxhalls, (2 Calibra's and a Cavalier) with a 1.4 Citroen AX sandwiched in the middle somewhere. More recently I've had a '96 Vauxhall Vectra (engine blew),'99 Vauxhall Astra SRI (best car I've ever owned) and I currently drive a '04 Ford C-Max MPV. So that's my entire car history to date.

My first car was a 1979 Chevy Camaro. It was maroon and fast as hell. Gas hog also but I had it from 1993-1996. Gas was much cheaper then and I had no bills or responsibilities. A lot of fun in that car.

My first and current car is an amazing little Ford Ka.
Burgundy/dark red, old as time itself, and guzzles petrol like nothing.

But she's really good at getting me places, and hasn't abandoned me so far.

Consider yourself lucky. Most people have a real beater for their first set of wheels.

What's to hate about a Caliber? Unless you have something against Dodge in general lol.

I would rather a old beater/fixer upper then this devil of a car.

The week after I bought I stopped at a stop sign and the person behind me decided he wanted to run that stop sign that day....taking my bumper with him v.v

A month after I got my car back from getting fixed I was in the wal-mart parking lot when someone else took off my driver side mirror....a month after (same wal-mart parking lot) someone took off my driver side mirror again.

A year after that my alternator went out followed soon by my transmission.

Now there is something wrong with my wires I think because my gas gauge is acting up and every time I hit a bump my gas cover and seat belt light comes on.

Over all the car is just really really bad luck...

I still wish I had gotten that 1969 Chevelle v.v
