1982 Toyota Tercel, 4-speed manual, no A/C, no radio. I loved that hideous thing.

I got my first car when I was 16 shortly after I got my license, I found a 2002 Ford Focus ZX3 automatic that a good friend of ours was selling. It has 140k miles on it and need motor mounts and a timing belt. The guy totally hated the car so I waited him out and ended up stealing it for 1,000 bucks. Ive now sold it and looking for another focus but 5 speed this time.

’67 Fiat 850. About 55 hp, noisy, slow, handled well for a tiny, rear-engined car of its era. Red! Fun!!

don't have a pic right now (have one somewhere from the accident that totaled it though :( ). but my first was a 2000 green focus ZX3 atx with manual everything. didn't really appreciate that car until after it was gone. it was nicknamed the "egg" or the "mini-mini van" (mom had a green 97 voyager). great car!

Haha, my dad had an 850 Spider in the early 70's I think. Pretty rare for anyone in the U.S. to say they had a Fiat 850.

He had a couple of small, underpowered, and unusual cars back in the 1960's, IIRC I think his first car was a Renault Dauphine.

1976 Buick LeSabre. The thing was just an abomination, and I treated it as such. But no matter what I did to it (and I did plenty), the thing just wouldn't die.
