Slammed 89 Integra. Terrible suspension, exhaust and smoked like crazy. Traded it before I turned 16 for a 93 civic si that was a giant POS but was covered in aftermarket parts of different colors.

1st bike was a 2005 GSX-R 600. Loved that bad boy. Got wayy too comfortable on it and started to scare myself. Sold it less than a year after buying for a solid profit.

Drove that old jeep on our walnut ranch in Sanger CA growing up. It was a 3spd manual. Looked just like that above, in total crap condition but it ran no matter what. Used a broom handle in the tank to measure fuel. I think I was 12 when I started driving that thing with my pellet gun in the back. Good times

I learned on a lot of cars, first car I learned manual on was my grandpas 91 Geo Metro. That was also the first car I drove regularly and subsequently wrecked several years later.

First car I owned the title to was my 92 Escort GT. Shifting into second sucked, but not as much as when I blew the timing belt on it. I miss that hunk of junk.

First car, and learned to drive on: 83 Chevrolet Citation. Auto shop teacher in high school said it was one of the worst cars ever designed by GM. This one looks exactly like mine:

First car I really learned how to drive stick on, college roommate's 95 Sentra SE-R with an ACT XT/SS clutch. Took less than 5 minutes to figure it all out. His was a darker green than this one:

My first car was a 93 VW Fox. Looked very similar to the pic, but black. It was manual and completely devoid of any options, lol. Soon traded it for an 88 Prelude Si.

I had a major crush on one of my sisters friends who drove a blue one of those.
 
TTIWWOP of sister's friend!
My sister also had a black VW fox. She acquired it from a neighbor.
I think she put it into a quard rail swerving for a small furry woodland creature, fixed it, and then got T boned making a turn in front of oncoming traffic.
RIP FOX

1992 Honda Civic DX sedan. Still have it, rotting in my driveway. Start it up and take it around the block once a month or so.
