Yes, congratulations 777ER on your first car. My first car is a 2003 Mini Cooper S. My dad bought it for me for my 17th birthday last year, and as well as a gift for getting my 'restricted pilot's licence' or GFPT. It's a great car, fun to drive, and very snappy. But insurance-wise, it's a hell. I'm paying around AUD4000 p/a, -which my parents pay for-, but still, it's not worth-it.
Anyway, the Nissan Sunny is a fun car to drive! So, enjoy the most out of it, before you decide to have another car

My first was a 1953 Ford 2dr, bought in 1958. Of course, I just HAD to spin the bearings so I could replace the flathead with a 57 Cadillac overhead V-8. It was a pretty easy swap, but I never did get the clutch slave cylinder to operate properly. And, to be honest, it was a couple of years before I gained the maturity to operate ANY car properly

2001 Ford Taurus SES....Toreador Red, with the 24 Valve Duratech Engine. My pride and joy...just washed it up yesterday. Got a fantastic deal on it because it was a rental...some jerk that had rented it used chewing tobacco, and must have put his spittoon right in the center of the console. Got tobacco juice all over everything...In all of the a/c ducts, stuck between the buttons on the radio, all the creases and crevices were plastered with dried, slimey tobacco juice. That may be why we got such a good deal on it...it was filthy, but I cleaned it up and now it's beautiful. Still, everytime I clean it I find some more of it somewhere...
But I still love it.

My first car was a 1970 Chevy Impala with a 327 small block and a two speed power-glide transmission. I paid $80 for it in 1983 (plus $30 for a keg of beer for the friend who brokered the deal) and it lasted exactly three and a half months prior to the tranny crapping out. Great car though.
