Pretty sure there are like 4 or 5 of these but mine was a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban XLT, fully loaded Vortec V-8 and towing package. Such a beast.

My first car was a 1997 Bright Aqua Pontiac Sunfire with the 5 spoke wheels.
My dad bought it for me but i picked it out and made the payments.
I got it brand new and learned to drive on it.
I traded it on a 98 POS Tiburon.
I should of kept the Sunfire. I just didn't like the the lack of power from the 120hp 2.2

71 Chevy Nova SS early production model with the 1970 402Ci, Th-350 b&m shift kit, posi, bought it when I was 14. Sold it when I was 16, to build my first s-10 v8.
I wish I would have kept it, bought it for 1500 in 96 and sold it for 1800 in 98. You could not buy that car now for less than 15 grand.

well mine was a 1966 chevy panel truck that everyone at high school called 'the beast', mostly because it was big and ugly, primer only, looked like it was covered in rust. filled the back with bean bag chairs and would usually take 6-8 people with me with room to spare. also it was great for snapping street signs out of the ground like toothpicks and had a big enough interior to just pick up the sign (post still attached) toss it in the back and take off. everyone i knew had a street sign, stop sign, etc as a special gift from me...

it only had the straight 6, 3 on the tree, so it was a dog, but indestructible. i hit a full 5 yard dumpster at 5-10 mph one time, slammed the dumpster against the concrete block wall behind it, broke 2 or 3 blocks from the wall, all it cost me was a headlight, other than that you would never know i hit anything, it was a beast and i miss it.

78 Chevette. Had a 350 engine dropped in it and I loved that car.

It was involved in a multiple car pile up at 70mph.. Truck in front of me sideswiped a pick up next to it. The pick up spun out and I locked up and t boned it at roughly 65-70mph... Had a broken collar bone from the seat belt and a fractured foot.. Count my blessings I am still here....

My first car was a 1990 Camry 4wd...the reason I bought it was because obvisously it was 4wd which is important big time in the winter here. I put ALOT of money in it, it was a lemon but goddamn wasn't it a beast...I blew the engine in it 2 years after I bought it and couldn't find another 4wd engine so I sold it for $25. Yes I do kinda miss it seeing as how it was my first car and every winter I wish I still had it, altho I'd probably be dead cuz I was effin crazy with it in the winter, passing cars in the middle of snow storms doing 120km/h when everyone else is doing 65km/h

93 Chevy Cavalier. It had numerous issues and it eventually gave out. Died on my way to the dealership to get a new car :laugh:. It was probably mad at me. My parents had to pick me up and take me.

'94 blue Ford Ranger XLT, it's sitting in my driveway right now infact... :eek:h:

It may have an underpowered engine and a ridiculous amount of slop in the steering wheel, but damn it that thing is a ****ing mule. It took the abuse of me learning how to drive stick, and after all these years we have never had a single problem except for a stuck caliper due to a rock chip, and that's not even the cars fault. It's the little car that could.

Hence, I call it "the donkey".

97 Cavi loved that car until I drove it through which I thought was a puddle and it wasn't :embarrest: My favorite car was my 2000 Cavi Z-24 until a dumbass drunk motorcyclist hit it. I only had it 6 months had it modded at 190 hp at the wheels... Gotta love the ol Twin Cam 2.4
