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.
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.
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.
My first drive was a 1982 Corolla... which was the slowest thing on the road. Slow, but it ran well. Totalled that one after being rear ended.
