Sweeeeet, thanks! I'll see if I can find the VIN. I'm what you would call slightly less than spectacular at keeping track of paperwork...

A '90 Grand Prix.. Loaded. Got it off a preachers wife for peanuts. 3.1L, 2-door, sunroof, bucket seats that just hugged ya, 62,000 miles. Immaculate condition. Cherry red, with gold flake trim.. The thing was beautiful. And it would **** and git, too..
Then I went to college. That's where it earned the name Snaggle Tooth.. Great memories in that car..
I wish I could find pics of it..

My first car was a '93 Dodge Spirit. Yup, an old lady car! I loved that thing though. One day I was driving through a green light and an oncoming Chevy 2500 decided he didn't need to yield before he turned. Needless to say the car was TOAST. I hit him right in front of his rear wheel and nearly ripped the rear axel off the truck!

I have some permanent ligament/tendon damage to my right hand, but most of all I miss my baby...LOL

My first car is a 68 Chevelle Malibu 2-door that I purchased in the summer of 2000. Has a 350 with 4-bolt mains, 4-speed manual and is sitting in my garage, doesn't get driven as much as it use to with gas prices the way they are but gets decent gas mileage at 16mpg whether in town or on the highway. Don't have any photos on the computer but am going to have to remedy that now that I think about it. It isn't a show car but is a nice driver.

A silver 1998 Ford Escort sedan purchased slightly used.

More Mazda than Ford underneath the skin. Overall: A good car but underpowered and lacked anti-lock brakes. Front seat would become uncomfortable after 2 continuous hours of driving. As a daily commuter though, it was a better than most cars in its class.

1992 Dodge Dakota that would randomly stall on the interstate. I had to pull to the side of the road and beat on the ECU to get it to start again :rolleyes: .

My first car that I personally owned was a '93 Civic Coupe.

12 years since I got it, the car is long gone but I still have the wheels on an '89 CRX Si that I've been restoring:

The first car I drove on a regular basis was my parents' 1984 Dodge Caravan it was brown with the fake wood panels, got into my first accident with it and drove it around a few more years.

looked like this one

The first car I ever paid for on my own was a 1999 Jeep Wrangler Green with a tan soft top. I still have it, she is set up as my beach buggy now.

from a couple years ago

The things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. People are good; honor, courage, virtue mean everything; power and money mean nothing; good always triumphs over evil; true love never dies. A man should believe in those things, because they are worth believing in.
