What was your first car??????

I was reading a new member introduction and he had mentioned his parents just bought him a mustang. I thought back 16 years ago to my first car! It was horrible! a Chevy Chevette! Not sure why they ever called it that. Its like a mix of Corvette and Chevy. That just goes to show you how ridiculous GM is!

Post a picture of your first car!!!!!! This will be fun!

I found out later the dealership threw a junkyard engine in it. Not Turbo. Left me stranded everywhere and finally blew up. My ex boyfriend stole my hubcaps off it.

The dash started peeling up right after I got it.

Re: What was your first car??????

1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Brougham 2dr owned by a little old lady.The car had 32,xxx miles when I bought it,it now has 72,xxx miles and yes I still have it. I repainted it the original color,replaced the quarter top,13" spoke rims,pro hopper all chrome hydraulic set up with 10 switches,steel braided lines,lots of gold plating.Ive had this car for 16yrs and the past 12yrs its been sitting in my garage.....I just don't have the heart to sell her.

BTW.....in 16yrs I have only done minor repairs like belts,alternator ,changed one headlight,changed one taillight bulb and done the normal fluid changes.

No ****!! My first car was an '84 Delta 88 as well, but mine was a 4 door.
I got mine at the ripe age of 15 before i even had my license. It was my dads car and I stole it for a joyride and took out a fence with it on a gravel road. My dad was pretty pissed, and he made me buy it from him for $1200. This was in about '96 i believe.
I ripped 2 transmissions out of it, replaced those, then when the timing gears went out, ended up getting another car. Lotta memories in it for that year and a half I had her though.
Awesome that you still have yours!!
