Black 2001 Focus SE when I was 17. Loved the car and it got me hooked of Foci. Sold it to my dad last year when I got my SVT but the poor thing is rusting away pretty bad.

1972 Ford Maverick Grabber 250 CID staight six, auto transmission, front drum brakes.

In retrospect it was a good first car since it didn't have that much power and I was a teenager at the time.

97 Dodge Stratus

Bought it for like $2300 with 210K on it. Up to about 260K now, had it for 5 years this October.

Still runs decent, makes alot of noise. Winshield fluid pump busted, a few busted AC knobs, Check Engine light has been on for about 2 years, Ive got one worn down wheel bearing in the rear and one loose wheel bearing (thats what's making all the noise).

Muffler is being held up by brackets, rust holes pretty near poking through the passenger side. I installed a 3.5mm jack input for my MP3 player, so the dash is all ripped out (I never bothered to bolt it back together). Side panels are torn out because I replaced the speakers after year 2 and never put them back in.

Hockey stick, hockey helmet, skates, snow shovel, toque, etc etc all sitting in the back seat, trunk wont open.

Needless to say, I need a new vehicle. Just actually finally put in an order for a new Focus Titanium Hatchback, considering my dealer couldn't find me jack squat, I had to order it. Its gonna be a hard 8-12 week wait (or some Im told, anyone know a more accurate number at this point?)..

1971 Chrysler Newport Royale:

Purchased in 1978 for $400. Drove the heck out of the thing and could not tear it up. It would hit close to 60 mph in first gear. 360 motor. Massive four door car. Sold it two years later for $250 and bought a very nice 68 Barracuda. Wish I still had that car.

Ah, the Renault Dauphine. A car that could make a Yugo seem good!

1981 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. It was craptacular! My step dad furnished the cash to buy it and rebuild the engine, and we had so many problems we gave up and sold it. The new owner bought a new carb and it ran for another 10 years. lol oops.
