    Please tell me about your first cars people, and post pics of them if you have any.. I'm sure we'll see a lot of different cars!

    My first one was a Volkswagen Golf GTI 16V '89.. Dammit I miss that car :(
    I don't have any decent pics of it but I'll a post a few bad quality pics of it.. It was lowered a lot, had std 14" and small bumpers.. A real old-skool looker :) It looked quite brutal coming at you on the road because of the lowering (about one inch from the front bumper to the road) :)

    Ah - the very vehicle I commenced car ownership with. It was called 'Barney', after the late Dr Christian Barnard (I put a new 1300 in it, and Barnard performed the first heart transplant).

    I do miss that little car - the 1300 was warmed up (they were an 1100 standard), we put a 5 speed in it, and some decent shocks - it was a hoot to drive, especially in the wet - you could drive it sideways with one hand (the other was needed for frequent gear changes).

    After that, I ran a mate's late '60's Mazda wagon (the model that looked like a Triumph Dolomite) for a couple of months.

    I then bought a 1988 Mitsubishi Magna wagon - a manual EFI that I managed to find 15 inch Elite wheels for - I gave it to Mum who had it up until she passed away - doing it up to give to a family member.

    I met my partner, and when we moved to Sydney we picked up a new '98 Holden Vectra CD sedan.

    We updated last year to the big blue super Sube, an '01 Subaru Liberty RX. As with all my cars, it is a manual.

    Once we acheive a few financial goals, I want to get an early '70s BMW 3.0s sedan to do up. Not holding my breath on that one...

    My first car was a 1972 Toyota Corolla Deluxe. It even had air-conditioning... :D It was originally that Nasty
    yellow-orange Toyota color, later painted a 1987 Firebird Grey. It had 356,000 miles on it before it finally died.

    My first was a 1984 Mustang, 3.8L V6. Bought it for $1900, and it had 70K on the ticker at the time. White on red.

    Actually a very smooth car, everything on it was in great shape. The motor had some good low end torque but the car was by no means a road rocket.

    Drove great, no major problems. Good transmission and engine. I really miss that car, as it was my first and came to a violent end :(

    My first car was actually a truck.... It was a 1980 model Chevrolet LUV. Anyone familiar with that? It had the little Isuzu 4 banger in it. It was fixed up nice, no dents, painted, new bumper on the front all chromed, and even was Carolina Blue... :p

    I started to work on it myself, fixing the interior up and keeping the outside looking good. I will have to find a picture and scan to post here. I did have that 4 banger chunked, I found a Chevy 305 to put in it. It really screamed then. I can list what I have had since then, but it's not too long of a list. There aren't any "performance" cars though......sadly enough.... :cry:
