What was your first car?

Hey guys, I got this idea from another forum...

So what was your first car or truck?

I'll start, I was lucky when my father gave it to me for free.

1993 Grand Prix SE. Puke green with fading/peeling paint. 3.1 V6 that blew a headgasket at 80k...maybe it had to do with my driving. Car would cruise around 120 with no problem.

Don't have a pic handy, but my first car was a 1977 Honda Civic.
It had the 1200cc motor, 2 speed Hondamatic transmission, White with Tan interior, 12" stock wheels, and the hard to find front and rear bumper brush/tie-down bars. It had a whopping 58hp if I remember right and the fastest I ever got it to was somewhere between 85 and 90 mph before it was shaking so bad and was screaming so loud I was worried it was going to blow up and had to slow down.
Paid $1100 for it when I was 16 and it blew it's engine on me sophomore year of college... Sold it to a Honda lover with grand plans for it about a year ago for $700 since I never got around to pulling it out of the back yard to fix up myself. Not bad, only taking a $400 hit when I bought it in a good economy in working order and sold it in this economy in non-working condition. Lol
Since then I've owned a black '85 Chevy S-10 with a V8 swap, a Wimbeldon White '65 Ford Galaxie with a big block, and now am the proud owner of a '12 Tuxedo Black Ford Focus SE hatch with the PowerShift and sport package. Next car likely to be another Focus I love this one so much :)

80 something Festiva, it was as crappy as it sounds but that was high school and it was a car. At least I learned how to drive stick.
