    I was just thinkin back about my first car and i was wonderin if anyones first car sucked worse then mine. It was a 1980 Toyota tercel hatch, no radio, an orange eagle graphic on the lower part of the doors, no paint on the roof. Oh yeah the kicker is she topped out at 75 mph. I hated that car but i had so much fun with it, we rallied the hell out of it. I even had a sweet custom exhaust, my uncle took of the cat, put a stright pipe on and a glass pack at the end. it was so friggin cool. :thumbsup:

    a 1987 Toyota Tercel hatchback. my friends had nicknamed it "the chick mobile". it had 4 gears and it barely went 80mph. the looked like it was on stilts and if you took a turn any faster than like 15mph the car felt like it was going to tip over but it did a hell of a badass peg-leg burnout. :p

    1984 Plymouth Horizon POS (but I'm glad cause if I'd had a fast new car at that age I'd probably have smashed it.)

    No radio, Tape player that ate tapes, shook like a vibrator at 80 kph (~50mph), topped out around 95 kph (~60 mph), had just about every peice fall off of it...including door handles (snapped like twigs).


    sold it to a mechanic and saw him about a week later broken down in the middle of the HWY :lol: , poor guy, I felt his pain :lol:

    I'll never own a Chrysler again :ghey:

    1988 Mazda Rx-7, i got lucky with my first car, it had dual cat-back exhaust, intake, tinted windows, short shifter, killer system, fresh coat of white paint, 17" motegi white rims and I split the cost of $2700 with my dad. I ran that thing like none other, constantly redlining it. It sounded fucking beautiful, and surprisingly I had no problems with it, that is, until I blew an apex seal. Whooops. :lol:

    Man, it seems like the most popular car was a tercel (back in the day). I also had a tercel hatch. It was an 85 manual...the most I did to it was take out the air filter...lol

    1982 Dodge 400 convertable (rips in top and faded plastic windowin the rear). Dad got it for $500 and made it run. No A/C in humid-ass Georgia, faded black paint job with leather seats. Talk about burning your ass. It got me to and fro until it overheated and blew the head. From there on out I was family minivannin it till i got my first honda (89 accord) and now i'm strictly honda. ;)
