Post your first car. (Or a picture from the internet of what it would have looked like)

Mine was a 1986 Dodge Caravan like below only without wood paneling. It was yellow with gold trim on the bottoms of the doors. It had the 2.6L 4 Cylinder Carbeurator equipped Me-so-beetchy engine that burned as much oil as it did gas. I grew up in it and drove it as my first vehicle in University. It died with 460,000km (287,000 Miles)

A 1970 Dodge challenger with the HO 340 and manual trans. That car took a licking and keep on ticking, it spent lots of time at over 100 MPH. When I was young almost everything I owned spent lots of time at over 100 MPH.

78 toyota pickup. Spent 10th grade modifying it for more power. Put out 190hp to the wheels! Used to race 5.0 mustangs and beat them in the 1/4 mile.

My first ticket was in it and was for 112mph in a 55 zone. After writing the ticket he asked to see under the hood.

My first vehicle was a 1994 Plymouth Voyager. It had the famous 3.0 that left blue smoke clouds everywhere I went. Fun times back in high school. The timing belt was the death of it.

I drove my parents 1994 Ford Explorer Sport. When I was in high school I was the only one who drove it and it was "my" car at the time. These pics were taken last March. My mom is still driving it today. 218k miles and still going strong. Dad bought it back in 1996 when it had about 20k miles on it. Very tough and reliable vehicle. I did my share of stupid things in it and it handled all of it extremely well. This car is the reason I'm a Ford guy.

This is after two years of work. I swapped a 283 into it and ditched the 6 bamger. Had it painted and bought rims and tires. It was a long project for me. That was 37 years ago.

1998 Cavalier with the 2.2 OHV and 3T40 3 speed automatic.
That poor engine spent a lot of time above 3000 rpm. I remember cruising through Nevada at 90MPH and it was spinning above 4000 for hundreds of miles. Did that run to Las Vegas and back a few times like that.

My fist car was a black 1995 Honda Accord V6, in fact it was the first year Honda offered the Accord with a V6. I miss that car, it felt solid as a tank even with 225K miles. I traded up to a 2006 Accord LX, then up to my current car, a 2012 Accord EX-L.
