Lets see when i was 17 i had a 1984 Ford ranger 2.0L 4cyl. (kinda rare) gutless wonder, however i could take it any where my friends took there quads, till the motor blew.

second was after i turned 18 I bought a 1991 CHevy 1/2 ton with a 4.3L V6 had a smashed up front end and was ugly as hell but ran good, till the tranny went.

Then i bought a 1989 Olds 88 Royale with a 3.8L V6 for an old beater that car would move. then the tranny started going out so i traded it for my 1985 CHevy S10 with a crappy 2.8L V6 witch turned into a night mare

Then I figured with as much money as i put into all those other cars i might as well buy a new one so i bought my Liqued Grey 2005 ZX5 SES So far its been a great car and I love it. Its quite the little Ricer Eater too.

1. 1991 Civic Si (owned it for three months until it was totalled by some drunk in a '76 Chrysler Cordoba)

2. 1993 Ford Escort LX 5spd. (I hated this car since nothing performance was available- so I invested a bunch of money into a sound system of Rockford Fosgate and Kicker components)

3. 1996 Eagle Talon Esi ( This is where most of my money went into. I miss the hell out of this car!!!)

Currently in my ZX3!!!! Wahoo!

My first car was a Geo Metro hatchback 1.0L 3cyl 5spd...fun car untill it met up with a focus:

My second car was also a Geo Metro same as that one but a year older. Here is a video of that Geo:


Then I got a Kawasaki Ninja 250 and sold the Geo to get the Focus!

1990 BMW 525i, 175K miles, still have it and love it. I'm gonna fix her this weekend (finally!!), and get her cleaned up. Bimmerfest is near, tyuh!!


The focus is my daily driver. Although I'm planning to get a younger low mileage bmw as my dd next, if I can afford it

Like the focus too though, but it gets to park on street

Last one owned was a 1993 Audi 90CS Quattro w/ manual tranny. 183K miles, ran like a top, body still rust free. Some electrical issues (non-working switches, etc), but mechanically she was fine.

18 or so prior to that, and I'm too lazy to list them..lol

so when i went to the dealer to return it they offered another car
thats when the semi came in wit these little cars i asked what were they
they told me the new line of focus i was like whoa i want one so dats when
i got my 00 zx3 its was cool cause i was like the first one that got one where i lived
