89 Ford Crown Victoria. 5.0 V8. I was embarrassed to drive it at the time but looking back it was really in good shape for the year. That would have made for one hell of a road trip car.

Let's see if we can give this thread a little twist and keep it going.

Favorite car you've ever owned:

I'd say my favorite was my 92 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4. Twin Turbo and AWD. Owned it when I was 20 (I'm only 22 now) That car was fast as hell. There was absolutely NO turbo lag. And with AWD you could launch like a rocket. I (with lack of better judgement) spanked Mustangs, Camaros, Trans Am's a GTO, even a Corvette and a Supra in town. Never got a single ticket in that car. Sold it off to some kid when it started having transmission problems the 2nd time since I had owned it. That damn thing broke down every other week. Haha... what a blast though

82 VW Rabbit. Total tank for an economy car. Great choice for a reckless idiot teen full of piss and vinegar. Would have killed myself in anything more ballsy. Very nearly did with my next car - an 85 Daytona Turbo.

My first one was a 2003 Subaru WRX, first and only car I've owned with a turbo. Lots of fun to drive for sure and the AWD was great for driving in Colorado.

1984 Mazda B-2000 pickup (kinda)

What a piece of shit, but it ran perfect and stood up to some hellish fucking abuse. And i mean abuse. I bombed that sucker through fields and all over hell, spun around every corner, did about everything to that thing and it kept going. Plowed into the back of my buddies big ass chevy pickup and killed it for about 4 years until i was older and had the time to fix it just to screw around with. Started up right away and once i got the front fixed up it ran all over again.

Finally died and i actually just sold it about 3 months ago to the scrap iron guy. Had it for about 13 years.

It was one of these only tan, dented, and rusty as hell. Interior was tan as well.

On my 15th birthday, my dad bought me a '66 Bug. The PO had tried to make a homemade baja out of it and had cut the front off in front of the tires and welded on a plate in front of the gas tank. The headlights were mounted on pods on top of the fenders. The car was orange and the PO had painted big, black spots all over it.

The idea was that were going to use it to build a kit car. However, I kind of got bored with that idea and just worked on getting it running and presentable. It wasn't done by the time I turned 16 so I ended up buying a '74 Gran Torino (think Starsky and Hutch) with only 33K miles on it for $695.

It was a pretty nice car but the V8 kept getting me in trouble. After I put it up on a hedge in someone's front yard, my dad made me sell it and I finally got the Bug running.

A baby blue 1976 Dodge Duster. This "Get out and Push" beauty had no brakes, the windshield wipers didnt work and no driver window. So basically, when it rained, it poured, all over me, as myself and my passenger held on to the string and pulled to make the windshield wipers 'work". I got really good at deciphering when to start pumping the brakes so I'd stop at red lights. Someone actually stole that car. I laughed heartily when I came outside one morning and it was gone.

Found a picture of the Bug once it was "fixed up".

I never did finish it. It had an awful defrost/heater system, which was bad since I lived in western Oregon at the time and it rained a lot. I carried a squee-gee with me to try to keep the window clear. After almost hitting a pole during a rainstorm, I had had enough and traded it in on a brand new '81 LeCar.

Heh. It wasn't quite that easy, but it wasn't hard. Remove two screws and the entire gauge assembly pulled out. Then it was just a matter of disconnecting the cable.

Unfortunately, with the cable disconnected the speedometer didn't work. Which really sucked when cops were following me.

Ouch. That must have resulted in quite a beating. :$2500:

I only got in trouble for car stuff once - it was just for going over on mileage. All the shit I got away with - they had no idea.

Years later I told my dad about the odometer. IIRC I was in my late 20s and he still got pissed about it. Little too late to ground me, though.

I had a 87 Z28 with a messed up carburetor. The damn thing wouldn't accelerate for shit and only got up to about 60. Well one night I got a call from the highway patrol at about midnight, asking me if my car had been stolen. I looked out in my parking lot and sure enough, my car was gone lol. Turns out some asshole stole it and the highway patrol tried to pull him over because my tags were expired. He tried to outrun them. Little did he know the car was a piece of shit. He wrecked it into a utility pole and they arrested him. Dumbass. I got the car back the next day.

Mine was a 1985 Ford F-150, which I ran into the ground, sometimes literally. My truck-owning friends and I would have races - road rallies really - between Rockville and Laurel, the most epic of which I won because Rick's truck blew a hose. It was rear-wheel drive with no tailgate and bald tires, so every snow was an adventure. I knocked a brick wall down with it, once hit another car and didn't feel the impact, passed a left-turner on the grass without slowing down, took it airborne a couple of times, and muscled a county bus out of my lane more than once.

I was a pretty irresponsible 20-something.

Death Duts doomed for hell

Technically, the first car I owner was a '74 Plymouth Valiant, but I never drove it more than two blocks. (It was modified to a manual with a Hurst shifter. I thought I could drive it. Little tip: when you're 17, and don't know how to drive stick, don't make a clunky manual your first car.)

The first car that was mine and I actually drove a lot was a 1978 Datsun 510 wagon. I loved that little car. It had the feel of a small cramped Cessna cockpit. The gas pedal moved a whole three inches, I think. I banged that car off everything from city buses to parked cars to tractor-trailers, and it kept going. It was small enough to squeeze anywhere.

Dude, when you hit the gas the thing was like a boat. the front end would rise and you were in motion very fast. my only problem with that car was that if you drove over a little fucking puddle the distributor cap would get wet and the thing would shut off and be impossible to start for 15 minutes. lol

Let's see if we can give this thread a little twist and keep it going.

Favorite car you've ever owned:

I'd say my favorite was my 92 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4. Twin Turbo and AWD. Owned it when I was 20 (I'm only 22 now) That car was fast as hell. There was absolutely NO turbo lag. And with AWD you could launch like a rocket. I (with lack of better judgement) spanked Mustangs, Camaros, Trans Am's a GTO, even a Corvette and a Supra in town. Never got a single ticket in that car. Sold it off to some kid when it started having transmission problems the 2nd time since I had owned it. That damn thing broke down every other week. Haha... what a blast though

1962 Nash Metropolian (green over white with black ragtop) just like this. They sold new for $1800, which was a lot at that time for that such small a car. It had 3 speed on the column. My dad purchased it when it was a year old for $800 from a widow and in 1965 when I turned 15 I got my learner's permit in Florida and this is the car I learned on and drove for a couple of years. I saw one last night sell on Barrett Jackson for $42,000. They stopped production the following year in 1963.
