    Mine was the size of a ocean liner and it used as much gas too. My fist car was a 1972 Ford Taunus- german car.
    After that i drove a 91 Fiat which had 34HP , a Opel Kadett, a Suzuki SUV-which i hated and some little red hoopty van. Here in the US our cars were a 98 Plymouth Neon(you had to refill the oil not change it). After that a Dodge truck , 03 Mone Carlo that didnt survive a hurricane, a old white Chrysler Van named Myrtle the turtle and now our current car and keeper a 07 Chevy Cobalt.
    THe most original and weirdest car i ever drove and owned was a 1969 Goggomobil. This car had a fabulous 13.6HP two cylinder engine

    This car had a mindblowing topspeed of 45mph when it ran on both cylinders and half of that when one went out. It was the only car i ever had where i could clean the front and back window at the same time without leaving the passenger seat. Oh mine looked like the white one except the bottom half was red. I loved that little coffin but sold it to an old man who loves them even more.

    A Plymouth Breeze. 4 cylinder engine, not snappy enough for me. Then I had a Jeep Cherokee, which was better (and holy crow, you could fit enough groceries in there for a small country) but I still wasn't happy with it. And now I have my truck, a Dodge Ram. I love it!

    65 Mustang.

    I just turned 29 yesterday, so I didn't buy it back when it was new or anything.

    Being young, a car like that can be costly to maintain. I ended up selling it and using the money to go to Rome, Italy for a bit.

    Blue AMC Concord. It ran rough when I got it. Every once in a while, some part would fall out or a belt would fall off and it would run a little bot better. It lived a happy and full life until my brother ran it into a row of mailboxes and killed it.

    Then I bought a Subaru-there wasn't a name for this Subaru, it was just the Subaru. It lasted a month before it died.

    Next was a Ford Escort. Never had a worse car than that.

    After that it was a red Ford Festiva. I wish I still had that one.

    Then came the Jeep Cherokee-Junior I called him. He was a gem and I loved him but after the kid was born, we needed something more...Mommy-ish.

    Right now it's a Ford Explorer. I hate it, but it gets the job done. A 1997 model, this is the newest car I've ever had.

    Mine was a 1979 red, 5 speed Mazda RX-7 when I turned 16. Had it for 2 years and my dad sold it and got me a new, 1986 Ford mustang, NOT a cool car. I hated it. Then a Ford Thunderbird, an old Mercedes SDL after I got married and now my Mercedes ML 320.

    1982 k car. no heat or shocks. i would leave high school with both front windows down and have to scrap the inside windshield to see. also i would fill it with friends and they would try to bounce it off the ground with not shocks. they could get it going pretty good. but i had wheels and it sure beat walking. my dad bought it for me after he had to drive me to summer school for a week. you would have thought he would have bought a better car for his daughter to be safe. i think the price tag was more important. my car was in better shape than the one he bought my sister. nice huh

    Mine is a Garnet Pearl (deep red) Lexus SC300. [​IMG]

    My dad got it for me when I was 17. The poor Lincoln Town Car couldn't take my lead foot anymore and after two sets of warped rotors, it was time to get a sportier car with harder suspension.
