Had a motorcycle license before a car license, so posting those as well.

First bike/learned to drive.
1980 Yamaha 250 single cylinder. Rocker arm broke on the way back from my road test.
Fixed it but never drove it on the road again.


Upgraded to a 1990 Ninja 250 as my real first bike after license.

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.

First car 1985 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer with the shitty V6 instead of the awesome 4.0 I6:


Learned to drive on:


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

`88 Chevy Corsica. Probably the slowest car I've ever driven. Good thing, too. I would have killed myself before I turned twenty. Weird thing, I bought a `96 number of years later as a winter bomber, easy to fix car.

ha, that was my wife's first car, she loved that heap. Something about the east coast loving domestic compacts over Japanese compacts. Surprised you went Honda later on. :p

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.

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.
