    1994 Ford Thunderbird V8. Got it at around 85k miles. Blew the transmission at around 115k miles. I can't believe it held up to my abuse that long.

    Not MY first car, but the first car given to me TO USE, by my parents was a peach 1988 Plymouth Reliant K-car with faded paint and an all maroon bench seat interior. Electric door locks, manual windows and mirrors, no cup holders. My father had purchased it new, two years after my birth. One of the piston rods got bent when I started it in -15 degree weather.

    The first car I bought from my father was a 1995 Subaru Impreza L FWD. That car saw some stuff...

    Now we are talking. The car of the KGB.

    The first car I owned was a 1991 VW Polo with a 1.1L engine.

    I used to drive my dad's Renault 4 can for years. We used to call it Karate car because of the shift lever.

    '89 Chrysler LeBaron with a 2.5 liter Turbo-Charged 4-cylinder, 2-door coupe. Thing was an absolute beast! Easily got it over 130 mph; I'd NEVER go that fast again. Jesus, it was scary.

    1957 Chevrolet 210, I bought it when a '57 Chevy was just another used car. I paid $125.00 for it from a friend of the family, it had four doors, a straight six with a knack for breaking the rear rocker shaft, three on the tree and four fifty air conditioning. The radio was a tube AM only with one speaker and a trunk big enough to play handball in.

    And here I thought lasers traveled at the speed of light, it sounds like your Laser would have trouble traveling above 70MPH.

    My 2002 5-speed 94 hp Kia Rio goes over 105 mph, but I haven't gone faster than that. Too afraid to.

    1950 Ford F-100. Had the Hundred horse flathead V8. Chrome stacks and fat tires. Midnite blue. It was a chick magnet, as was I.
    Older brother had a 1940 P.U.with the flathead. Cousin had the '40 Ford coupe.
