I had a 1998 Dodge Neon. I’m surprised it lasted until 2004.

Mine was a black, 1986 Toyota MR2, that my daddy bought me for my 15th birthday in ‘94.
I called it The Lawnmower.

68 cougar with a 351 Cleveland topped with a 4bbl holley. Ran like a champ until I blew the engine racing a z28 iroc in 1988.

Two-tone blue 1983 Ford Escort. Once the cracked carburetor cap was fixed and it would start in the rain it was a good little car.

A 1978 or 1979 Ford van. Bought in 1986. I still have it, drive it. There isn’t a part on it that hasn’t been replaced at least two times, but technically it’s a 1978 or 1979 with all inherent advantages.

67 Fastback Mustang. My father bought it for me for my 16th birthday, because I had maintained straight A’s all through school. Only problem, I didn’t fully appreciate what I had, at the time. A family member still has it, and has completely refinished the car, as well.

1979 Plymouth Duster. It looked suspiciously like Al Bundy’s “Dodge” in a couple of episodes of MWC.

2000 Chrysler Cirrus. Had 250,000 miles on it before it crapped out on me. I sold it to an old hillbilly for $200 and then I got my ‘06 Jeep Liberty which I freaking love.

Every damn part of that thing was messed up by the time I got done with it. Said hillbilly later got in touch with me and said he had put $2500 into it and he still couldn’t get it to run. 0_o

A Lamborghini Countach. In Black.
But over the years some of the labels have come off, and I do not even know where it is anymore. Probably buried in some cardboard box.

I had a 1962 Studebaker Lark. Great engine, ugly car!

1979 Ford Mustang Ghia. Sadly, it was an automatic. It really should’ve been a manual.

I also drove a VW Bus… I can’t remember what model year that was—late 1970s, I’m sure.

Ahh! My 1968 AMC Javelin My Pops bought it for me when I was 22. My sister wrecked it:(

1980-something Ford Ranger.

2007 Audi A6. Got it for my 16th birthday (and I still drive it obviously). It’s an excellent car :)

1946 Dodge coupe. One of the first cars manufactured after WWII. My grandfather had an auto wrecking and body shop; he found this car crumpled up on the Boston Post Rd., brought it back to the yard and banged the dents out.

My father gave me a piece of heavy yellow canvas to cover the very dirty and shabby seats.

I got my driver’s license after my 16th birthday and hit the road.

In 1998, I learned to drive a car finally. I was 18. My mom bought me a white1985 Dodge Aries. I promptly named it “Princess” and drove it into the ground over the next 3 years. I loved that car….haven’t had my own car since.

‘03 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ, silver. Brand new. Totaled it within 7 months. Opps.

A 1976 AMC Hornet. It was green.

SavoirFaire's avatar

A light blue 1992 Honda Civic DX Hatchback. This was also the car in which my father taught me to drive.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@rebbel : So that’s why it was such a bizarre year…you were at the wheel!

rebbel's avatar

Okay, it was a blue one.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Yeah, I remember pretty colors from the ‘70s. That fits.

1987 Toyota Corolla hatchback. White.

1967 Coupe Mustang, black and beautiful. I’m a 22 year old female and it was the best car I ever had.

blueiiznh's avatar

my older sister borrowed it one day and crashed it. (she was ok).

1966 VW beetle.

I think I paid $1,300 for it.
I drove it until the clutch wore out, and then I sold to a friend’s sister for $400.

thecaretaker's avatar

A 63 VW Beetle, bought it at the lemon lot at Edwards AFB in 93, i was an airmen and I still own and drive the car, almost lost it in quick sand, used it to haul wine barrels, trash cans full of dirt from a dig out under my house, drove it from Sacramento to The Dalles Oregon only two stops for gas, I now use it to take both my daughters to school and back and the car looks better than when I bought it; the car likes rabbits and squirrels, I have taken out so many of them im starting to believe the car is hungry for road kill.

‘87 Toyota Corolla, not terribly different from the ‘85 I now own, though I traded the A/C, loose tie rod end, and broken driver’s window mechanism for a big skull on the hood, a leaky sunroof, overdrive (four speeds; w00t!), and power mirrors.

rooeytoo's avatar

1949 Ford, I paid $50.00 for it. That was in 1962 so it was almost an antique when I got it! It had the stiffest clutch I have ever tried to engage. I was terrified I would develop huge unsightly muscles in one leg.

‘94 Honda Civic…. purple body, blue bumper. I must say though, that car had character.

Facade's avatar

‘96 Infiniti i30 and I (we) still use it. I wish I could have been a part of choosing my car though.

saintDrew's avatar

The only form of transportation i ever had was my bus pass and bmx bike =/ .. am trying to buy my 1st car real soon though!

gondwanalon's avatar

A 1953 Plymouth Belvedere station wagon when I was in college back in 1970. I had to rebuild all wheel break cylinders, put in a new clutch and transmission (it took three to find one that worked) and replace the head gasket 3 times to keep her going. It averaged around 11 mpg (Of course the price of gas was around 30ยข per gallon at the time).

1997 Toyota Tercel!!! OH YA BABY!!!!
