Mine was a 68 bug with a 911 twin turbo kit. My grandfather bought it for me as a project car and that is when I started to get into modding cars. that bug didn't even have a motor when we bought it. I beat my best friends 93 cobra and he was p!ssed....lol
My first car was 96 Galant, it was a nice car, never put any money into it. Then I got myself a 97 2g AWD. When it walked I got a 89 Buick Regal which I have never put money into it. I did one oil change on it in a year. When i started to hear noises i just added some oil to it. Now she is resting in the junkyard. Got my DSM running, sold and now I have an Evo. I also have a dream to buy a 96 mirage ls and do something crazy to it. I smell 4g63...no maybe 64. I am not sure yet, but turbo defenatly.
My first car was a 1972 formula Firebird with a 455 Big Block. I fell in love right then and there with raw horse power, Then went to a 200 camaro Z-28 V8, Than a Lincoln LS v6 5sp trans, then an 04 Sti now have a 2003 Dadge Ram 2500 with a I6 Cummins turbo Diesel with a 6 sp Man trans
1972 Pontiac Ventura II. straight 6, 4 mismatched tires, holes in the floor boards and pea soup green. my stepdad paid $75 dollars for it and i used it to drive the mountain/dirt roads of Montana while in Jr High School. i think i sold it for $125 a couple yrs later.
'81 Datsun 4 door hatchback in the fashionable silver color with red interior. AM only radio....sweet....the thing was a tank though. Top speed on its own was 80 mph, if you were in the draft or had a good tail wind you could bury the speedometer, which was 85. It met its end on the way to school one morning when it was rear ended by a Ford Maverick, I think we would call that steel on steel crime.......
R-33 Skyline with Stage Two Turbo's, met it's demise in one of the few tree's off the side of a Texas Highway after the rain. Sold it and left the import scene when my somewhat look alike Mustang was gifted to me by my dad to "convert me". I never looked back after I slaughtered a 07 ZO6 using nothing more than a clutch and some good driving.
Not to mention I'm tired of buying "Vspec" badges which are stolen so often it's stupifying.
1985 Mercedes 190E. Not a bad ride when your 16, probably the only kid in schoool with a mercedes at the time. Got it for $4500 and sold it for $4500 four years later. Probably one of the greatest car investments I ever made.
