Car, that is. It was a Ford Maverick and my father's friend, a car mechanic, found it for me. When I visited the garage is was a distasteful mustard yellow color, so I asked the mechanic to repaint it a burgundy color. It looked something like this:

From wikipedia:

Quote:Originally marketed as a two-door sedan at a price of USD$1,995,[4] the Maverick was designed to be inexpensive to manufacture and maintain.

- This is true, it always started in the Canadian harsh Winters and I don't recall having alot of maitenance issues with it. I also learned how to maintain it myself, because back then, you could do alot yourself.

Quote:The name "maverick" was derived from the word for unbranded range animals, and the car's nameplate was stylized to resemble a longhorned cow head.

My next car was a Ford Mustang (third generation)...cute as a button, and all black, because black cars look better in the shade. (Going by memory here)

Am I in the mood for a new car? Hmmm.

rofl.gif Shadow - I remember seeing alot of those types of issues back when.

Thanks Octo, I don't think I appreciated it back then as I do now.

I guess I started thinking about Ford cars because I remember eyeing a new Ford Mustang convertible the other day on the highway. Sweet.

Mustangs have always been classics. I don't think you could go wrong if it's kept immaculate.

For sure, but the only problem would be that I would have to work full-time for a long time to pay it off and I like working part-time at this stage in life.

Yup, it sucked, but it was a first car. They were disposable, cast iron head on an aluminum block dispersed heat at a different rate and ultimately warped the engine block.
Planned obsolescence was bigger then, it was old when I got it. Lasted about 3 months until I replaced it with one of these...

'77 B210... Fugly, and 10 years old when I got it. It would not die. damned.gif

I suppose when one is young and looking for a first car, any sportscar-looking type of car will do. Those two would have been OK in my book, JR.

Ha ha, Octo...I am a cadillac. Hmmm, I wonder if they have a sporty, convertible model?

Quote:your a preppy person, most likely you enjoy shopping and wear "big" glasses, your known for your good looks and "mid-class" attitude. hey it's just a quiz, it doesn�t mean it true! so enjoy or take the quiz again

My first car was a Mazda I shared with my sister. The first car that was all mine was a '72 Olds Delta 88 Rayale. It had a 455 rocket for an engine and a king size bed of a back seat. I don't know how fast it was, but it had no problem burying the needle at 135.

Lots of good times in that old boat!

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night
