My First Car

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

My first car was a '96 Ford Explorer. It was a tank, and I drove the hell out of it. Got it with transmission #1, got rid of it in '01 with transmission #3. That was $5,000 I wish I could have back...

I think we need a cleaner version of your first car there Hort.

What are your ideas for names for the car? I feel it's very important. My first car was a '98 Dodge Intrepid. It was white, and I called it the Sailboat. You are driving a white van, so maybe a name that conjures up images of a plus-sized woman? How about Bertha?

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

One of my best friends in high school drove an old Taurus as his first car, and we all called it the, well, it'll be mod edited, but it's four letters, and is part of the female anatomy that often comes before Taurus, but spelled differently. So, there that is.

My and two of my friends refer to our first cars as the bastard brothers of cars. I drove a '93 Dodge Shadow, and the other two cars were an '88 Chevy Spectrum, and a '94 Chrysler LaBaron.

Good Times. ;-D

My first car was a 1985 Ford Escort; two tone brown, 5 speed, 4 door DIESEL. I left massive clouds of black smoke everywhere I went. A POS that no chick wanted near. I would borrow my Moms Chevy Corsica for dates, and that's BAD when a Corsica is an upgrade.

However, I got a consistent 50+ MPG from it....I wish I still had that car now! :-/

We called it Rudolph after Rudolph Diesel, creator of the engine. My dad's old trashed Mercedes 300 diesel was Adolph. Think Pops was a WW2/German history freak just a little? :*)

Car #1 was gold Mazda GLC w/ 4 speed manual that I was told 'when you can drive stick, you can drive it'. Needless to say, I learned how to drive stick in about 5 min and was off...I had two home stereo speakers in the hatch w/ a crap mono tape recorder pumping filthy 80s punk rock (Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Descendents, etc...) out at filthy volumes. The windshield wiper squirters were 'adjustable' so I could squirt my pals, fast food restaurants, toll plazas, etc. The tranny went out (likely a mileage function, as my dad rode it hard on the highways around Chicago so it was high miles, I don't remember how high...) and then I had....

Car #2 light blue VW Super Beetle. Utter chick magnet for 1980s punk rock suburban goombah. My dad and I redid the body, sanding out the rust spots and putting in some new sheet metal to fix the holes. While we were doing that it had light green, grey and maroon primer all over it. It was painted dark blue at Earl Scheib for $99, rough but very amusing transportation for a couple of years before it blew up...
