1985 chevy el camino- this was my first car i bought when i was 15.learned that 305 chevys are dogs, 200c transmissions are junk, but no matter how faded that burgandy paint got or how slow that car really was, it always got attention. people that said they could stand it just didnt understand it, and really loved it. i also learned that at 17 it is not a good idea to try a frame off resto with no money,no garage, no time, etc. thank god my little brother got into cars and started workin at a resto shop. the car still lives and looks better than ever, just not mine anymore.
1993 grand prix- learned that even at 295k 3.1 gm motors are indestructable, it can be fun to thrash a 4 door family car in the mud and show up at school and have more mud on it than the mall crawlers that were there. also learned that buying spinng hubcaps as joke is even funnier when they come apart at high speed and look like frisbies flying through traffic. felt bad after i realized the damge it could have done. this one needless to say got junked
1994 cutlass ciera- owned a few months, had a cheap system in it, through some wheels on it that came off a ford ranger, little 14 inch chrome ones, that on the car stuck out past the fenders cause of the back spacing, looked horrible but was more of a joke than anything. learned harmonic ballancers on those 3.3s like to seperate, the transmissions on them do some pretty cool things when slam the gas and wait for it to shift then lat off and slam it again, rolling burnouts all day haha. i also learned that if a dude steals your girl, its really fun to steal his pride by beating his riced out jetta with a grandma car in front of a crowd of people.
1985 camaro z28- learned tpi 305s are fun, not to buy rotted unibody vehicles, especially t tops. paid 700 for the pile from a "friend" who failed to give the paper work on it, but left his plate on it toget it home, never could get a hold of him again, so with no other choice i drove it, had to get to work somehow, needed to help my mom with bills. i made a mistake one night, and played into a ricers game, and clipped the idiots car as he came to a dead stop in the middle of the road for no reason. at that point i learned hit runs, matter how long it takes for them to find you is no joke. some how with 100 dollar fine i walked out. lesson learned, dont drive like an a hole, dont run unregistered, dont trust friends when buying vehicles.
1989 f250- i loved this truck, put way to much work into it after paying only 300 dollars for it. frame rotted out on it after 2 years, fun times in it though
1984 cutlass- what a basket case, got cocky again, yanked the heat out, wanted to go overbored with no money, had 283 chevy in it, which was whooped so i put a less whooped 305 in it, body was shot. this car got me, my brother, girlfriend and mother around for 2 years, it served me well. major lesson learned, no matter what you think, it is never a good i dea to remove the heat, if you have to drive it in the winter at all it SUCKS.
84 grand prix- 1800 bucks for rotted out pile that wasnt worth 200, they just covered everything real well, learned be more thorough in the pre buying inspection
88 f150- learned if it dont run dont pay 800 bucks for it, was a nice truck, got it running with parts from the 250 mentioned earlier, gave it away almost completed when my son was on the way
93 tracker- learned its not a jeep, but is still fun,if you get 2 big dudes to stand on the back and dump the clutch, wheelies all day
87 chevy monte carlo ls- haven learned much from this car, other than i love it, it was what i really wanted when i bought that elcamino. not a great family car but it did the job when i needed it to, still have it, still workin on it
97 grand cherokee- this is a great family vehicle, has pontentiol to be built into decent weekend warrior, and i learn somthin bout jeeps all the time since i bought it cause i got all kinds of jeep friends now haha
