Your First Car?

My first car is my Cobalt! At my school, there are alot of Cobalts that I assume are everyone's first cars. I soon thought how many people on here got their Cobalt as their first car. So is it your first car? If it is, what led you to getting a Cobalt? If it is your first, post some pics too if you'd like! Thanks guys

That doesn't mean you can't be proud to say that was your first car!

1971 cutlass
Paid $150 drove it for 4yrs.
Best car ever...
Smashed it a month into driving it.
An stuffed a pair of pants and shoes and put it in the front grill
And the hood had a wrinkle in it so put a glove sticking out..
Had a fishing string tied to one of the legs and when ya pulled it the leg would kick
Man we'd have fun at the mall driving around...
I'm old to...

I traded a bottle of Remy Martin XO cognac for my first car, a super mint two-tone 1986 Pontiac Bonneville Brougham. It was a 3.8 V6, rwd, had all of 110hp, maxed out at 85mph and she was a thirsty girl. But damn, she was special. I still have her in storage. Really wanted to put a 350 in her, but alas, I never followed through. Car is stock with less than 60k miles, has timing issues and a leaking diff.

My 2nd car was a '97 Bland Am 3.1 V6. She wasn't pretty but she was a champ in the snow.

'07 Eclipse GT build thread - 280whp, 254wtq

Shitty way to find that out!

My first was a 1990 F-150 passed down from my dad. Loved it and hated it at the same damn time. I miss it, but I'm glad I'm not still driving it. Slung a rod on the intersate halfway between home and college on a trip home one time. And that's how I ended up with a Cobalt!
