Mine was a 1987 Mercury Cougar V6. It was actually pretty s***ty to be honest. Then I got a 1979 Firebird Formula. It was a neat car...had the TA ground effects kit with the twin nostril Formula Hood. It also had a warmed over Pontiac 400 engine and TH 400 trans from a 1971 GTO...so it was a bird with the heart of a Goat. I really regret getting rid of it to be honest.

All in all I have had like 14 cars:)

Whatabout everyone else?

'76 Ford Torino. Bought for like 600 bucks. Beat the piss outta it for 4 months, and it loved every minute of it. All it asked for was a quart of oil a week!

My first car was a 1980 302 Firebird. It was a P.O.S.! but it was mine :D

I have had several since then, But my 3 favorate in this order are

1999 Corvette Converty (Traded for a stroller)
2004 Pontiac GTO - I like this car a lot. But just not quite as much as the Vette.
2002 Chevy Avalanche (Traded for a better MPG vehicle - My 2004 Vibe)

70 challenger, it was a machanical nightmare at first, not to mention blue crushed velvet, but after a lot of time and money it became something half decent.

Mine was a 85' Tercel wagon. There was also a 87 Supra for sale, but my parents figured I would kill myself driving that car. That car was so f*cked up man! I had to put the car in neutral before I stopped or it would cut off on me. :(

'75 Maverick

paid 100 bucks, had it 10 months. In that time I replaced the 4 wheeled DRUM breaks twice, the car would not stay running, had to drive with 2 feet. The passenger seat was broke and I had to stick a rope out of the door to hold it up. I had to lift the door to close it. Finally, I jacked up the car to replace a flat tire in the back, and the bumper fell off.

63 Chrysler Newport (I'm showing my age). "Typewriter" transmission, square steering wheel, 361 (265 HP if I remember). $500, drove it for 2 years and 35,000 miles and sold it for $500 when I went to 'Nam.

'64 Impala SS,
loved tha car too. It would do 60 in 1st gear. 327 engine w/275 hp. Yellow w/black bucket seats and 'foe on da flow'. Had it jacked up, (cool at the time) 50's on the rear, 35's on the front, and crome reverse wheels all around. I would drive around town with my arm so far out the window, that my knuckels would s****e the ground. B) Took it to work one night, (security gaurd at a construction site), and some fool came out of the parking lot across the street to fast and hit my car, pushing the right front finder back about 4 ". I was upset, but I was determined to find someone to bang it out. I took it over to my grandmothers house and drove my mom's car to work the next night. While there, a drunk came along and smashed into my Impala head on, totaling the car. I cried like a baby.

79 Grand Prix with a 301...golden brown. My friends called it the sh!t streak.

Car was 14 years old when I bought it, I was 16, but low miles and in near mint condition.

NOT a fast V8, just sucked down the gas.

I was a good start though, as I've never owned anything other than a GM V8.
