My first car was a 1972 VW Beetle. When I finally got rid of it, it had a lowered front end, custom interior, and 1.7L custom engine.

I bought it in 1990 and sold it in 2010.

1991 Ford Ranger 2WD - bought it for $300 back in 2002 when I was 16.

Basically a red Ranger and nothing more. No power steering, no AC, no power windows/locks, no carpet, manual trans with a bench seat. It had the bulletproof but lackluster 2.3L. God help you if you were going up hill with a strong headwind.

Still I miss having a cheap truck I could throw whatever I wanted in the back.

1980 Toyota Corolla SR-5 fastback. I couldn't find a picture of my color, which was light blue. My mom paid about $700 for it; it was a 5-spd, and I drove the wheels off it.

My first car (legally driven) was a 1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. I busted ass for two summers bailing hay and bought it for $500. It was gold, had a 350 2bbl, auto and skinnies with whitewalls and hubcaps. I promptly yanked the 350, dropped in a 396 and tossed n some 60 series Geagle ETs with Aluminum slotted mags. I sanded the entire car down and primed it gray, removed all of the chrome and put true dual exhaust with Turbo mufflers on it. The best thing about that car was the huge backseat............yep.

Silver 1980 Pontiac Firebird with a Pontiac 238 engine. I added a 6" lift and cherry bomb muffler to it. I loved it and miss it terribly. It was sold to my brother in law who immediately traded it for a boat. If I knew where it was now I would be tempted to reclaim it. I still have a set of keys to it. lol
