Mine was a 1993 Mazda MX-6. Dark green 2-dr coupe with a V6 making 164 hp. Pretty quick for it's day. Got it when I was 17, September of '05. Had leather seats, cruise control, sunroof, I absolutely loved it.

Lasted me through the rest of high school, and after I moved to east Texas. Had my first "backseat lovin" experience in it one night at a rest stop, was cramped as hell but something I'll never forget. She ended up quitting on me (both the car and the girl) at 148,000 miles. Don't remember what exactly ended her life, but had problems with the speedometer not working until it got going a bit, the cruise went out towards the end, and was hit from behind by a lady on her phone. I sold it not too long after that.

A 1986 Ford Tempo.  I drove it for about 9 months, at which time I drove it over the side of a mountain.  I rolled the car, and that was the end of that....
A ten year old (at the time) 1973 Land Rover 88" Station Wagon. Drove it everywhere for two years, then replaced it with a 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190. I rather miss both of those vehicles.
1974 Ford Maverick.  Bought it for $500 from my grandfather in 1991.  Never had a more reliable car.  Didn't have any bells or whistles...AM radio with a single speaker in the dash, straight-six engine, no AC, no power steering or brakes - just a very simple, basic mode of transportation.  Traded it after a few years for a sporty little black Pontiac Sunbird that gave me nothing but trouble.  There are many days I wish I had my Maverick back.  Did a lot of cruising the town in that old car.  Picked up a few first dates in that car, and racked up thousands of miles going to visit a college girlfriend about 400 miles away.  Now, I drive a nice, well-equiped Chevy Silverado truck, and while I love my truck, the Old Mavvy will always have a special place in my hear.
1970 Ford LTD 2-door with a 390 four-barrel. Thousand wonders I didn't get killed in that car.
1978 Jeep CJ-7  bright red with Black hard top.  My dad bought it new.  It was a 4-speed and I learned to drive a stick shift on it.  Five years after he bought it, he handed the keys over to me. Like the '74 Maverick described by Gary, it was plain and simple and very reliable....... both on and off road.  Wish I still had it.

Mine was a faded blue 1966 Belair 4 door with the inline 6 and a the 2 speed automatic that was designed to go behind the big block. It had something north of 120,000 miles on it when I bought it for $200.00. It was a great first car. I was amazed that that little 250 motor would pin the speedometer on that big car especially with just that 2 speed trans.

Great truck.  Hand me down, and I was last in line.

Nice.  I had a 1978 F350 4x4 in college.  Similar to yours, but with square headlights.  Weird college kid car, but definitely scored some man points with a 460 bored .030 over, and 38 inch mud tires.  I drive a Toyota Tacoma now.  Less testosterone, more practical for my current lifestyle. 

Nice

 

1996 Toyota Supra TT 6 Speed.

1980 Monte Carlo (I was 16 in 1996)
