A 1996 Chevy Corsica. I beat the hell out of this thing for a year, turned around and sold it for exactly what I bought it for.

1967 Mustang. All original from top to bottom, only 28,000 miles even had the original spark plugs from 67 lol. Came with the original 289 V8 auto. I'm in the process of restoring. If you look close you can see the 8 in the window from when it was last registered in 1978.

I don't have a picture of my first car, but this one is real similar. Mine had chrome wheels, though.

1966 Chevy II Nova- sorry no 327 FI 4 spd from a Corvette. My Nova had a 194 I-6 and 3 spd manual with column shift. I think the top speed of the car was somewhere between 65 and 75 mph. I learned how to rebuild carbs by rebuilding that tired old Holley 1 bbl. The muffler used to fall down regularly, and so I learned to always use 2 clamps 180 degrees off each other instead of just one.

i had a 1984 GMC 1500. it was lifted 2 inches on 33" tires. It had the 305ci v8 and a 4 speed. i could never go on the highway because it really hated going over 50mph. and i got an amazing 8mpg. i sold the truck when gas hit $4 a gallon.

'91 Ford Taurus was given to me by my parents, but the first car I bought was a '95 Dodge Neon. It was a bit unreliable but I drove that thing for miles and miles and miles.....

79 Chevy Monte Carlo. POS. Repossessed 'cause I was too young and stupid to pay for it.
Then lots more cheap beaters.
I didn't buy a new vehicle 'til I was in my late 20's.
