http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j211/canexplain/cars5.jpg

this is one of my couple of warning from the cops .... i was in OK, on the road, went over the hill, hit my brakes ... the cop said when you were slowed down, i clocked you at over 130 mph ... i told him how i was on my way to CO to get married which i was, he laughed and let me go ..... one year old when i bought it .... i saw it on one of those auction shows and it went for 180k, can you imagine, only 2k were ever made

First car- '00 Toyota Corolla. I ran that car into the ground. Totalled twice. Ended up putting more into that car than what it was worth. Oh well.

http://www.auto-bestbuy.com/photo/corolla00silver01.jpg

Second car- '98 Toyota Camry LE. I loved that car, had all the leather and wood trim, power windows, bigger, more powerful... such an improvement over the Corolla. Had it for all of 7 months- complete transmission faliure, and cv joints went; had to sell it for scrap.

canexplain had a mr2, that's awesome. i always wanted one of those.

my first car was an '86 mustang convertible GT 5.0 drop top. it was the shit. my grandpa left it to me in his will. all my cousins are much older and when they graduated high school, he gave them each $2000. well, i was 10 when he passed, and before he passed he gave me the title for my birthday. i remember being like "wtf is this piece of paper?!" and my dad's like "umm, grandpa just gave you his CAR".

this car meant a lot to me. my grandpa and i were super close. he was quite the charmer. he'd always pull up with the top down and do the "hang loose" sign with his hands when he pulled away. my parents almost sold the car at one point, but i balled my eyes out about how they could never sell grandpa's car.

it got me through high school, until my ex-boyfriend trashed it. it's still on the side of my parent's house. i miss racing any and everything in that car <3

I've always had a horrible history with cars. I didn't own this, but my family did, and this is what I learned to drive in...78 Grand Prix. My dad had a company truck, and my mom had agoraphobia, so as soon as I turned 16, I drove this 90% of the time.

http://www.madle.org/gp78b.JPG

I bought a '75 Riviera in college.

KfGDUn2o3PM

Look at that monster! Luckily, gas was around 99 cents a gallon at the time. Blew a head gasket after about 18 months and cracked the heads. The repair would have been more than what I paid. So my grandfather loaned me a few grand to buy this piece of crap...an 84 Ford Escort Wagon.

http://memimage.cardomain.com/member_images/9/web/2961000-2961999/2961235_3.jpg

Wow, this one's getting towed too. I hated this car. Mine was particularly wacky. It was a two tone with a pinstripe, a leaky sunroof, and a bright red interior. No A/C, which was fine because I was going to college in Flagstaff, but my parents lived in Lake Havasu and in the summer, my girlfriend lived in Phoenix. Oh, and it overheated like crazy and eventually blew a head gasket too (but it got repaired unfortunately.) Only cool thing was it was built in Canada and had a speedometer in KMs. Came in handy when shooting a video in college where someone was supposed to be driving fast. I got out on the freeway and drove normally while I shot the speedometer reading 110.

The Escort died after college, and I had good enough job to get a car loan. I bought a 90' Corolla.

http://ppgmedia.buysell.com/ppgphotos/2005811123729706/2005811123729706_2008185044302191-display.jpg

I loved this even thought it was boring. It was comfortable, got good mileage, and was reliable as hell. I only had to repair it once- a faulty starter coil or something. When I got married, my wife had a car that was falling apart. My Corolla was paid off and I knew it would run another 5 or 6 years easy. So we made a deal- we would buy her a brand new car on a 5 year loan, than I would get a new one when that was paid off, and so on. She got a little Hyundai- not a great car, but the first time either of us had owned a new car, so it was nice. And then...I got t-boned by some 16 yr old running a red light.

Because the Corolla had so many miles, they only gave me $3000 for it. So now I need to find something that's going to last 5 years and costs less than $3000. I wind up with an '86 Audi 5000.

http://www.selbst-doku.de/user_stuff/images/typ44_audi5000_us.jpg

I'm sure this was a kick-ass car in 1986. But this was 1999. Instantly, the transmission failed completely. Replaced that, and it wasn't so bad after that, but it leaked tranny fluid. The door handles would break in the freezing weather- I replaced a couple times, but then gave up. I think towards the end, the windows wouldn't roll down AND the AC didn't work. Luckily, I just had to drive it to work...we used the Hyundai for everything else.

Finally, I paid off my wife's car and bought myself an '04 Honda Element.

Currently, I own a 2005 Chey Silverado SS truck. Blacked out bitch!

First car was a charcoal grey Volkswagen Bug, no special year maybe 72. It was my parents and it used to orange. I had to share it with my sister for the first year. I installed my very own tape deck in that bitch...It was quickly jacked.

Then I rolled my self into the BLAZAAAA. Chevy Blazer 1985. This car was the shit, I made my first trip to Cali in it. No AC and the girls had to take their shirts off because it was so hot.

College I had my very own Acura Integra...pimpin'

Fuck we used to roll the BLAZZZAAAA around my high school bumbin Twista...cuz it feels so good how we kick it in the hood.

My blind grandma gave me her 1988 Subaru GX-10 when I turned 16, because she couldn't drive it very well anymore. That little car was made to be destroyed by a high schooler, but, somehow, my parents killed it instead. Funny thing, that car had a turbo in it, but without that, it couldn't run up hills. Seeing as how I lived at the base of a 13,000 Ft. mountain, when the turbo went out the car just wasn't practical anymore.

So, I rolled it into town and went to the local ford dealer. They just happened to have a 2002 (This was early 2003) Ford Focus SE that had been driven less than 200 miles. It was a really good price, so I traded in my dead little subaru and got the Focus. I'll break 100,000 with my focus in a month or two, and it still runs great. I had to recently replace wiring because some mice chewed it up, and the transmission gave out around 85,000, but those are the only two problems I've ever had.

Almost as a cliche, I was swept up in the import craze that was going on in the 90's. I mean, being around Asians/Pacific Islanders, you were almost expected to tune out your hondas, acuras, subarus, etc...so, my first car that I owned on my own was not unlike Ivy's I had a 95 Civic Hatchback SI with a GSR swap, GReddy Cold-Air Fusion intake, and later on a HKS Big Tyme Turbo boost, which I got to enjoy a total of 4 months before wrecking the car. Here's what my car resembled...

I have them somewhere amongst the million boxes of stuff in storage, so whenever I get around to findin' them, I'll post them. If anyone is familiar with the 405 and 605 I pretty much crashed in the transition tunnel after drifting asleep...driving while exhausted is worse than driving drunk sometimes.

Yeah, I've done that once and it was scary. Luckily, for me my foot was hitting the break and when I stopped I awoke.

My first was a Ford Bronco II. It was a hunk of shit but it went from A to B.

Later, I bought this beautiful Honda Prelude Type SH. I drove it for nine years with no problems and loved every minute of it.

Last year, I sold my Prelude and decided I wanted a Honda Insight. I wanted blue but could only find red and silver near me. I then found an almost new blue Insight at a dealership in Huntsville, AL and had them agree to pay for a plane ticket so I flew out and drove it back to Texas. I love it (65 MPG :)) and will be driving it until it dies.

I won the pink slip to a SH once, but since I'm not much of a gambling man, I let the guy keep his ride. I didn't want to show him up in front of his hot Asian gf. I did, though, take her number instead.

i am the same way. trucks start just coming into my lane sometimes. and i hate being behind giant vehicles i can't see around. they've also raised some of the ATM machines out here which annoys me. my car is efficient. therefore services should be geared towards cars like mein and not inefficient, giant vehicles.

I tried my damndest to find a picture of a blue oxidized 1965 Mercury Comet Stationwagon... If I had known they were so rare, I would have kept that piece of shit! But, anyway...My highschool sweetheart had the wheels, so I never bothered to worry about my own car....http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee54/ann1968_2007/chevelle1966.jpg It was a Canary Yellow 66 Chevelle SS. It was his pride and joy and I was proud to have taken his virginity in it as a blessing. :) We ended up getting married and my grandmother gave me that stationwagon. Apparently, she must have been thinking I was into a large family or some shit like that...Not! For our first anniversary, we decided to just go LOOK at new cars. He made the mistake of letting me sit my ass in the driver's seat of a 1982 Camaro. Charcoal Gray, Louvers, Bra, etc...http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w18/1BROKENDOLL/940f.jpg Unfortunately, the car payments outlasted the marriage and as I took the "High" road, he took the car. I proceeded on my way with a 1973 Vega + 3 head gaskets before I figured out Vega's weren't meant for me...http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w18/1BROKENDOLL/Vega-1.jpg I dated a "motorhead" for awhile who, while working on my Vega allowed me to drive around in this 70 1/2 Z-28 Camaro with a 454 under the hood. (If I wasn't in Heaven driving that monster, I certainly was headed there faster than the normal life span. I was in San Diego at the time and used to go out to 2nd street in ElCajon and pick races with that car. Managed to collect afew tickets as well...Allow me to race through the next 3 years, seeing as I'd like to forget them as being my "Delinquent Daze..." :( http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w18/1BROKENDOLL/PICT0011.jpg Upon returning to the real world, my estranged father got me this 87 Ford Ranger with the blessing, "Now, get your shit together, be sure to visit your mom, but stay atleast 200 miles away." Needless to say, here I am in Coachella Valley, I still own the damn truck, and not only does it look better than when I got it, I intend to make a tie-tac out of it one day to present to my dadhttp://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w18/1BROKENDOLL/IMGP0030.jpg Note the stickers on the rear window...that void in the center has my Daft Punk Decal from the Alive tour there. And it alone bumped up the value of the truck!http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w18/1BROKENDOLL/IMGP0033.jpg I may not have my shit together yet, but I did get it together enough to be able to go visit mom one weekend driving this, a 1986 Corvette. And, yah...you can bet I pulled up when dad was out in the front yard gardening as I stepped out of it and smiled! http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w18/1BROKENDOLL/IMGP0014.jpg

This is my first car, it only had brakes part of the time, I could only have headlights or brake lights but never both, and if you sat in the backseat on the passengers side the battery would arc and shock you. Oh and the generator was bad so if you my freinds knew that riding with me often meant a push start.

http://i37.tinypic.com/f56239.jpg

My second car that I got from a police auction, it was painted all white though. The backseat was torn up and didn't have door handles or window cranks.

http://i37.tinypic.com/4qk5cw.jpg

My first brand new car, although I bought it in Oregon so it didn't come with A/C. I lived through 2 summers in AZ with that car. UGH

http://i37.tinypic.com/2nisbyd.jpg

My current car, it is my favorite of course. Everyone refers to it as my box so it always is a good conversation piece.

here is a side view of my 2nd fav car I had ... two downsides on this car ... you had to put premium fuel in it or it would "detune" itself (but that car was so cool in many way, the gas tank was actually long ways sort of and split down the middle for more even weight distrubution) .. the other thing, when i bought it, it had factory tires made esp for the car ... they hung to the road like glue, it was amazing but they cost 200 bucks apiece ie: 800 each change ... well they lasted a total of 4 months ... i did that twice and decided that 3200 a year on super tires was not worth it .... replacement tires still were cool but not like the originals ...
