First Car, Current Car

I really hope this hasn't been done before, but I cant search the forum for previous threads, cause my internet at work is really odd today. Anyway, I want us to post a picture of your first car, and then of your current car. and if you're still on your first, show us some before and after mod pics.

What I Drive: 2012 Race Red Focus SE Hatchback

Here is a pic similar to the car I had. It was a 90 or 91 Mercury Topaz. It was so long ago I can't remember the year model. It isn't the first car I ever had but the first I ever bought by myself. I was in the navy then, bought it in 96.


This one of my current cars, the Race Red 2012 Focus SE. Has a 5 speed manual. This is the only pic I have of it at the moment, the day we bought it last month and it was taken with my iPod so the pic isn't great. I would take another but the husband took it to work, he is driving it now until I start school because it gets better gas mileage. Also it is the second Focus, it replaces the blue we had bought last fall but was totaled in an accident barely 5 days later. Wasn't my fault at all. I told the story in my intro thread.


This was the blue one before and after.



And here is my other car, a 2009 Ford Flex SEL. That is my older son being bored while we were looking at houses to rent.

First Car. It was a tank, only mine was Green/White. It needed every bit of that V8 just to roll down the road.



Currently (not my picture, but you get the idea) loaded with everything but leather.



Wanting a Grabber Blue 2013 Mustang. Like the Candy Blue 2013 Titanium Focus, but I'm not digging the transmission. Also thinking about a Challenger.

A 1946 Ford Pickup was also in our family until about 6 years ago. My father started having health issues and was unable to continue restoring it for a second time (it was his daily driver for 30 years, he restored it once in the early 80's, but it was needing an engine rebuild, he had a 351 cleveland in it). he eventually sold it because he couldn't work on it anymore and I never had the time or resources to finish it.

Again, not my picture. And forget the cheesy wheels, we had the original steel rims and caps.

1985 Mustang LX

This was my first cool car that I actually bothered taking pics of and had real potential presented in it's bone stock state with 195hp ($21k back in '93) and nabbed it from it's first owner with less than 15,000 miles on it for about $14k.
