    Hey Volksnick, I enjoyed reading your history! Congratulations on your milestone!



    My first car? Sigh...

    Once I got my license, I was allowed to drive my father's car just about any time I wanted. It was a pale, milky green 1976 AMC Hornet - 4 doors, pointy hubcaps. The official color was Seafoam, but my friends called it "this is why you don't feed the baby Taco Bell when it's your turn to change it's diaper" green. LOL

    My actual 1st car - chosen by me and paid with my own money because I wasn't a very bright kid - was a 1975 Mustang II fastback. It was the stereotypical junkpile made to look purty by a sleazy used car lot. How funny - today's Ford 5 liter pumps out over 400 HP. That 1975 302 V8 (= 5 liters) wheezed out a measly 95-105 HP depending on the source! How I wish I had that car back -- so I could smash it into tiny pieces with a sledge hammer.

    First car was a '74 Mustang Mach1. First year of the "gas wars" cars so the Mach1 had the huge 3.8L V6! Mine had a cam, headers, ofenhauser high rise and a holley 650 double pumper on it. I trashed the tranny and broke all the tranny mounts...rebuilt with heavy duty innerds. It was actually a fun little car...when it ran right. After the mods always had to tinker with it to keep it humming.

    Haha, what a funny thread, and look at all you old men showing your age :P

    My first car, a 92 Acura Integra, and that was considered old when I was 16.
    good reliable car, anything else would have broken down on me or killed me.

    My third was my VX
    The Black one in the middle was the Acura, the kaiser is obviously the VX, and the white one is what i have now, all three have been prides and joys.

    ROFL ... I have no response to that ... but ...

    'snot nosed' & 'wet behind the ears' are phrases that are coming to mind.

    Just remember that Old & Sneaky beats Young & Energetic any day of the week.


    Put a smiley after you say that Bub.

    Which brings up the question of "can the VX be flat towed or need to be trailered"??
