    1976 Pontiac Astre. 2.3 liter with the 2 barrel GT engine and a 5 speed manual transmission. If I'd have had a car with a V8 I'd probably have gotten myself killed.

    We raced through DC, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, oh, and Kentucky when we went to NCO school. That was an amazing little car. Folks just wouldn't believe it was a 4 cylinder till I opened up the hood. Handled good, stopped good, weak on acceleration but fast on the highway.

    66 VW Bug.....no heater.
    Let me tell you air cooled engines that are placed in the back of a car don't produce a lot of heat and when there is no fan it makes for a cold Canadian winter.
    You had to leave the front vent windows open to keep the windshield from fogging up.
    But I had a blast learning how to drive a car that had all the weight in the rear and No weight in the front.
    So that means when driving on slippery winter roads it would always understear when entering a corner and overstear coming out of the corner. Great way to learn car control.

    1989 Plymouth Reliant K car. It was a powder blue station wagon with fake woodgrain interior. I went to a private high school with rich kids. It did not make me a popular.

    I was pretty lucky - my first car (in 1983) was an 1980 Z28. White with the dark blue stripes. The reason I'm on this forum is because I just bought a project car - it's an 81 Camaro that started out life as a Sport Coupe, but I'm going to re-create the look of the car I had when I was 17.
