'87 Golf $200
'92 Mustang 4 cyl $1000
'96 Escort GT $2500
'94 Mustang GT $6500
'01 Tracker $8000
'99 Miata $7000

The golf i only had for like a month before the mustang but both of them were total shitboxes. The mustang had a different drivers door, no exhaust after the cat, shitty interior, bad tranny, and the heat/power windows would stop working if it was too humid out. I still have the tracker and miata.

Oldsmobile? Is that a real car brand or is that slang for something? LOL!

My first car was an '88 Holden Gemini, it had a bullet proof Isuzu engine. Never changed the oil, just topped it up when the warning light came on.

After that I got a '96 Civic sedan. I fiddled with the suspension and got into circuit racing with this one.

Then I got a '05 Golf 2.0 TDI. Brilliant car but too many little issues bothered me enough to not want to keep it outside warranty. Only car I have ever (and most likely will ever) buy new.

Next up was an '04 MSM. Nice car, but stupid diff ratio and lack of steering feedback. I liked to drive older fives over this one.

Now I have an '89 MX-5 that I tinker with all the time. It has a few annoying rattles but good apart from that.

When I look back I also realize that cars I wanted then I would want nothing to do with now for various reasons. My top three when I was 15 were 300z TT 3000gt TT and the IROC Camaro. Thank god I didn't have the means to get into one of those.

'84 Ford ranger in '05, $500 truck with 200k that was all original and would not stop running. I'd still have it, but it got stolen and was worthless when recovered.

Yeah, it's for real, LOL. Its (it was) a branch of GM. They used to make cool stuff... Google Oldsmobile 442. I's hard to sell new cars with "old" in the name.
