Well being from the other side of the pond my first ride was a FIAT Uno Turbo i.e. from 1987.

Little red rocket, reliable and - man was the thingy fast!

I had the same but as LHD. 1.3 liter engine with turbocharger at 1.6 bar around 105 hp. Made it 210 km/h fast (130 mph) at around 780 kg (1720 lbs) it was a kart not a car.

Drove it for 100 k miles and sold to my brother which drove it for two more years, then sold it to a friend of him at around 130 k miles.

My first car was ford focus 2005. That's when I fell in love with Ford. After that, I changed a few more models of Ford Focus. And now think about ford focus 2019, just a little bit of time left to wait.

I have a 2018 Ford Fiesta that I bought just for commuting. It's a total econobox with no options (has a radio and A/C, but 5-speed, manual windows, etc.), but it's surprisingly fun to drive. I'm thinking the ST model must be a blast.

My first vehicle was a '95 Blazer LT 4dr 2wd, loved that thing so much. Probably is the reason why I still love blazers after 20 years, reminds me of simpler times of my youth.

1988 corsica 4 door. Thing was a death trap. Drivers seat held down by 1 bolt, passenger by 2. Rear seat wasnt attached at all. Truck was held down with wire, tail lights were tuck tape. Rear dash was a floor vent when I got it, took it out and installed 2 10" subs with sheet metal, and 2 12" subs in the trunk. Had 3 different kind of tires. Horn was a push button screwed to the dash. Built a wooden box for the radio. Had about 300k when I took it through a four wheeler trail, caught air and landed on a rock. Put a dent the size of my head in the oil pan. Drove it home where it laid to rest. Second was an 83 Camaro with ttops, sbc with a shift kit, magnaflow exhaust. Ex got rid of it before I can pick it up from her place.

sorry no pics of either or... too bad you cant print them from memories lol...

edit, these are pics of what they looked like. Corsica looked preaty much in the same shape, Camaro had black cloth interior, and I removed the antenna and closed the hole.

Toyota corolla te71 coupe, had it for 3 years. Different engines form original 1.6 litre to 1.8 L twincam with turbo and injection... best result in dyno was 197 hp and 255nm from backwheels... fun to drive but pita to keep, rust is an issue here, because of climate and road salt...

I had a 1977 Chevy Malibu Classic. Money green, 4 door, 305 V8, some rust over the rear tires, and a MINT gray interior. Saved up money from slaving at Pizza Hut, and bought from an older couple...think they had it since new. Paid $450 for it. Had 8X,XXX miles on it....but there was only 5 spaces on the odometer. Who knows how many times that thing rolled over!?
That thing definitely got put through the wringer. Used to roll around with 6-8 people comfortably. Put a JVC head unit in the glove box, and two 6x9s in the rear deck. It only came with a monospeaker AM radio.

Had it for only a year and a half, then I was backed into. Front end was trashed, but driveable. Ended up selling, and picked up a 92 Z24 Cavalier my senior year. After a buddy wrecked it I ended up with a 1994 S10 Blazer Tahoe. Loved that truck. Drove it till it died, at almost 300k.

Couple Monte Carlos later, a G6, and I'm here!
