Man, it looks like NO ONE other than me (and maybe Brads03zx3, but he was racin' his!) drove any beaters! I'm jealous of all your shit! :D

Ok, so here's the list:

My first car? 1988 Ford Tempo. 5spd, because lets face it, the auto was even worse.

Second car: 1980 Pontiac Parisienne. It had a wicked front end, a weak-ass chev 305, and one night, my roommates and I got loaded and painted it. Black. With Rollers. In household-exterior latex. :D On the upside, I didn't care if any one hit it, and occasionally encouraged them to do so. Bought the car for $700, put nearly $300 into it, and drove it for 4 years/230,000km. Actually, I still really miss that car.

Third car: 1986 Pontiac Firebird V6. Got ripped off on that, blew the engine after three weeks, and spent the next year trying to do an engine swap,s omething I'd never attempted before. It ended up being too big a job to do in a buddy's yard, while I was a student.

Fourth car: 1988 Pontiac Parisienne Safari wagon. THAT was a beast. Drove it for way longer than I should have done.



Fifth car: 1994 Mercury Grand Marquis. Not awful. Not great, but not awful. Again, didn't have the money to do much to it except keep it running, but I had swapped in the ECU from a '94 Texas Patrol car, and put dual exhaust on it. It suffered from the typical Ford 4.6 woes of blowing blue smoke, and eventually the EGR and catalytics plugged and set the carpet on fire. Admittedly, a lot of neglect there.



Last car: 2003 Acura RSX premium. I really, really liked this car, but with the agressive financing on everything, including the GC, it made sense to trade it in for a coupe.

Yeah it was a pretty cool setup. but finding partsfor a truck made less than 3 years sucks, and a turbo iron block cast rod chevy v6 is not the most efficient engine. It made gobs of torque though, mine made a little over 330hp and over 450lbft torque.

What Tufast said: I watched a Typhoon EAT a corvette ten or twelve years ago, like it was nothing. Admittedly, the guy in the vette was a total douche, but, still.

Hold on to that, that's gonna be a collector. great ride, man.

Had a 93, 90, and then 91 Eagle Talon TSi AWD. Had a 97 and then 94 Pontiac Trans Am. Had an 87 Buick Turbo-T Limited and currently have another that's for sale. Also had an 03 SV-650S as well as a bunch of daily drivers and beaters to save my toys from the weather and tons of miles. Below is the current Buick, 32k miles on the clock and far too many mods to list here....




Looking at getting into a 2.0T Track soon.

My Civic. It's kind of dirty. I had to drive way way way out of town to get that scenery. Bent a few rims on the way too... :dunno:
