A 1988 Chevy Spectrum. Small, silver, rusty, but would run after you shot the engine with a 12 gauge shotgun.

I wish all my cars ran like that.....

A 1978 VW Rabbit GTI.

Absolutely not reliable, but it was really fun to drive when it was working...

1953 Ford Crestline; pretty solid 5-yr old car, but I had to, of course, experiment with my teenage engineering knowledge and drop in a 1955 Cadillac V8. Fun, but a lot learned of what not to do. After struggling with reliability (and police intervention) factors for three years, I learned the true meaning of work and purchased a new 1960 Impala, my first "real" car...jack

1995 Saturn SL1 - this weird silver purple color that looked almost pink sometimes...gray interior, automatic, cassette player - but those were the only amenities. it got me where i needed to go, though, at least until the transmission gave out. good car.

1996 Red Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. The onboard computer screen sucked. It would flash all these messages about how the hood was ajar, and it would beep all the time. Other than that, the car was great, and very comfortable. Had dark gray interior, and the standard V8.

Now you may ask WHY I put the VIN...I memorized it just for fun back in the 70's when I had the car...now I can't FORGET it!
Have had at least 4 other cars since then!

Been driving 3 years, had 4 cars.

My first was a red 1988 1/2 Ford Escort. 1.9L, 3spd auto. It was only $200 at first, but parts added up. Then the transmission went out...  Sad

Since then I have worked my way up to a Black 97 Taurus!

My first car was a 1987 Ford Sierra 1.6 sedan. It probably was red when it came from the factory but when I bought it for approx 80 USD it was discolored to a rosy-pink color. I had to spend about 1000 USD on spares and stuff and it lasted me for 2 years. An OK deal but my mom hated having it in front of our house.

My second car which I still drive is a 1989 Volvo 440 GLT. It is a great car which is a joy to drive ...compared to the Sierra.....but its looks are going fast.
