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.
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.
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.
1980 Monte Carlo (I was 16 in 1996)
metallic dark green paint, with pea green vinyl interior
bought it for $1200, still have the bill of sale from the car lot
1998 ford contour. Bought it for about $1800 with a starter that was killing the flywheel, but did not replace the starter until the flywheel broke. Oops.
Turned it in as a down payment when I broke the key inside the door (thank god for spare keys) and my driver side door broke and I got tired of fixing it.
