    What was your 1st car?

    What was your 1st car? I had a 1976 AMC Hornet, everything that could go wrong with it often did. I'm not to sure MTV could even pimp-my-ride it was so bad. But it did get me around for the near 200,000mi it had on it.

    ...and did your siblings or children have a nicer ride than you?

    1980 dodge omni. Door handles horrible. Anyone that owned one will agree. I had 6 replacement door handles ready to fix the one that was about to break. All my siblings had better. The Omni was a hand me down.

    Mine was a 87 Nissan pickup. It was a good vehicle for a 18 year old. Fuel efficient, yet hauling space. Powerful 4 cylinder engine that had 8 spark plugs- yeah you heard me right.

    I went to a junk yard one time for a buddy of mine that needed a Door handle for his Omni, they didn't have any used ones, they sold me a new one instead. They said there really wasn't any used ones. They all break eventually.

    Re: What was your 1st car?

    1988 chevy nova. It was my moms car, she gave it to me when she bought a new one. Every time it got over 60 MPH the whole thing started to shake like a parkinsons patient.

    It's life ended when it somehow steered itself into the side of Jeep Cherokee in 1997.

    1987 Dodge Caravan with wood panels. I'm surprised it ran as long as it did, I beat the crap out of that POS.

    '67 Chevelle. Wish I still had it. Second car, '71 Camero SS, wish I still had that one too. Fun times, gas milage wasn't even considered.

    1976 Toyota Corolla Wagon with fake wood paneling on the sides. She was a 5 speed manual and she was a dream to drive. Everyone called it "Rusty" but I haven't figured out why

    My parents had an 88 caravan. Almost as durable as a chevy Celebrity. Those engines would outlast the body
