You win!

I bought mine in 1998, so it was about 11 years old at the time. It was in pretty good shape though and had a sunroof (boy was I cool with a sun roof!) even though it leaked when it rained really hard and collected water than spilled out when you hit the brakes...

1996 Toyota Camry (4 cyl., DX).
Parents bought for me new when I turned 16... I retired that car @ 208,000 miles in November of '07 for a new 4Runner.
Car got me through high school, college, and first 3 years of work without leaving me stranded or giving me major issues. I learned a lot about cars with this vehicle... Toyotas may be boring and not really up to the quality that it was once known for but I will never put anyone down for choosing a Camry as their ride...

My first was a Honda CRX HF, 97 horses and 14" wheels ! It was cool then.
Had 3 roommates and 4 cases of beer in it once (don't ask how we did it), drove from New Haven to Boston and back for a weekend party @ a friend's.

mine

My first was a 1967 Pontiac Firebird. That was in 1978. It was more colors than the rainbow. My dad paid about 400 for it. I got it when I was 18. It was a good ride though. It had a 326 four barrel with a 4 speed and posi-traction. The first car I bought on my own was a 73 Chevrolet Impala two door with a 350. Nice big car. Got me through college and into the military.

91 Honda Civic DX when I was 17 which was in 95 - DX means it had an air conditioner, radio and nothing else. 5 speed manual, roll up widows and something like 80 horsepower

Drove it through college, from 46k-146k. Only started to act up after I ran it into a cab.

Did you not read what I had?! A '70 Pinto! Don't believe mine was worse? Then have a look at this: http://chrisoncars.com/2012/08/worst...rom-the-1970s/

Top that!

First ride

My 1st car @ age 16 was a 1952 Rover 90, 4 dr. sedan with rear suicide doors !
Purchased for $300. The car was solid, except for the rotten floor boards which I replaced with plywood and it's performance could best be described as leisurely, but the interior had genuine English leather seats and burl walnut trim - similar to my M Sport !

1990 Ford Escort, 4 dr, white with red velour seats. (I hated it, but at least I wasn't taking the bus during high school). I was only too happy to move 3000 miles away to college and let my dad sell it for me.

I promptly then bought a 95 Jetta!

91 Nissan Stanza (which Nissan replaced with the Altima in 93 i think).

It was a 5SP and that scored me some points with friends. Oddly enough, the car was such a base level car, it didn't even have a Tach......still strange to me considering it being a manual transmission. Dad handed it down to be with 145K on it, and I got it up to 195K before getting rid of it when needing something a little more reliable to get to and from college.

1970 Firebird, bought in '74. Had it painted candy apple red with a nice coat of clear. Black interior. Deep dish Craigers.

My roommate ran a '63 Tbird, a very cool boat that was in a continuous state of repair.

1987 325 when I was 16 (1997). Cinnabar Red coupe with Houndstooth cloth interior. 5spd of course with 137k on the clock. My Dad paid $4250 and I made weekly payments to him until I graduated from high school. I plan on purchasing a 89-91 325is when I start to approach my mid-life crisis.

My first car was a 1987 Chevy Celebrity back in 1996. My Dad who was then in the car business brought the car home for me when I was 15 paid for in cash. I remember having illusions of grander that I was going to get a brand new Mustang GT and originally turned my nose up at the car. Talk about having my priorities out of line.
