Mine was a '65 GTO, 389 4 barrel 4 speed. It was pretty tired when I got it but sure loved that body style. My '04 GTO is a superior automobile in every respect to my '65. I'd really like to drive an '05 just to compare the difference in engine & braking to the '04.
My first car was a 1987 Nissan Sentra Coupe XE. I wish I could post a picture of one, because most people have the wrong car in mind. The sport coupe was only made a couple years, I believe. Anyway, it was a hand-me-down from my dad.
From there, I purchased a 1993 GMC Sonoma SLE (in May of '95). It was a great truck. 2.8L V6. I traded it in (125,000 miles on the odometer) on the 1998 Bright Green Metallic Camaro (3.8L V6). My first brand new car. In April of 2003 I bought a second vehicle. A 2003 S10 single cab. It was loaded. ZQ8 suspension, 4.3L, power everything, etc. Sadly, in March of 2004 my Camaro was stolen. I drove the S10 until I traded it in on the GTO last October.
So, to sum it all up, I've progressed with each new vehicle:
1957 Lincoln Capri! It was bought in 1967 by my wife and me when we first got married and I was in the Air Force at DLIWC in Monterey, California. Since then, we are now on our 28th car. Last few have been 2000 S4, 2000 C5, 2003 GLI, 2003 M3, 2004 Vue Red Line, 2004 Mini Cooper S, 2004 GTO, 2004 Silverado (we still have the last 4).
1990 Mitsu Eclipse, got it for $800 it died in 5 months, i was dissapointed but i replaced it with my car now 1990 Cadillac Fleetwood, and no that doesnt even have the Northstar 4.5 V8 not the fastest but i still crush some of these ricers out here :afro: that will soon be replaced on my birthday when i put my down payment on my 05 GTO :woot: :friday: oh yeah and LordGear i feel bad for you that was a great car im sure :flush:
$50 Chevy Vega. Not even a GT! Possibly the slowest car in the world as it was an automatic, burdened with the weight of of A/C but without the benifit of actual cool air. Had a short in the electric switch that dad fixed by installing a starter button on the dash. Should have seen the driver examiner's face when I began my road test by pushing the lighter button to start the car.
Drove it for a year, and did not bend it up, so I was allowed to sell it and upgrade to a '64 Impala SS. Such began my obsession with full size performance.
