1989 Chevy Beretta. "The Silver Bullet".

It had all the computer-assisted wizardry and creature comforts of a Campbell's soup can, but I loved it and drove it like I stole it.

01 330ci first car. Got it like brand new my senior year, I had a great great job at the time which helped me, man that shit shared so many memories with me, it was like my wing man lol, I ran that shit into the ground and crashed it many many times under the influence unfortunately. Then I grew up and drove a few volvos, hated them compared to my dead e46 and finally came back to BMW. Started playing wit the n54 and also now n55. I love my n54 and when it dies I will probably start nodding my DD n55 and get another BMW. I'm hooked for life.

1989 Plymouth Sundance Turbo 2.5L (yellow!)

It was a really fun car to drive. Weighing only 2700 lbs, 150HP and 170 lbft was plenty of power. It looked just like the one in picture below.

First car:
Make: BMW
Model: e90 325i
Year: 2006
Exterior: Black
Interior: grey/beige

I bought it because the other car I was driving which really wasn't mine got the hood bent. When I went car max to buy a car I never thought of buying a BMW, but my sister's b/f (who drives one), convinced me to buy it. I wanted to buy a stick but they didn't have one on the lot

And here, I thought my first car was crap. You definitely got me beat...

1982 Ford Escort GLX that I got for $800.00. Had every option but the automatic (who would want an auto anyway ).

My wife had a cool car...84 Pontiac Fiero. I'm actually looking for an 88 GT to work on with my son now. Maybe that will be his first???

My father had a late 70's Dodge Aspen, silver with red velvety interior. Within a few months we called it the Dodge Aspirin cause it caused so many headaches.

My first car was a red 1990 Suzuki Swift GT 1.3 L 4 cylinder DOHC 100 hp "pocket rocket" that I stalked for one year and drove for ten years! It was solid other than having to replace brakes and exhaust about once per year!

I must be older than most on here. My first car was a '68 Dodge Monaco, bought in '75 for $350. A 4 door tank. It was green with a black vinyl top, 2 shades of green, and 3 shades of primer. Never could find the right color to respray the fenders having fixed the rust damage. I also added better seats, carpeting, stereo, etc. Drove it thru highschool and college before I bought a nicer car, a '75 Chrysler Cordoba, but not one with 'rich corinthian leather".
My first new car was an '85 Dodge Daytona Turbo. You can see part of the Monaco behind my next car, an '87 Dodge Daytona, Shelby Z. I still had the '68 Dodge as a winter beater until it was no longer worth keeping running. Junked it for $150.

$300 68 Ford Torino coupe. Ugly brown with a white hard top. Windows that fell out of their tracks, useless heater system, always fixing a brake cylinder or master cylinder. small 302 c.i. V-8. Had sat in a neighbors garage for about 10 years. Bought it in 89' when I was 15, seemed like the coolest thing on earth to me then. Had the potential to look like this pic, if I hadn't been just a dumb kid.
