1988 Pontiac Fiero GT. Amazing that I did not die. Fast in a straight line.

I'm surprised there are no Pinto survivors here.

I saw a 25th anniversary edition yesterday. Loved that gold and black paint job.

1981 Plymouth Horizon. I don't think any pictures exist of my first three vehicles, LOL.
Man I beat the sh*t out of that Horizon until someone made a left turn in front of me. Thank God she was driving a Geo!

My first car was a 1982 Toyota Pickup 4x4, lifted with roll bars. A friend helped me learn how to drive the stick.

My brother's first car was also a 240Z.
Then my sister got a Fiat X1/9.

Dad was always working on them, so when it came time for me... he thought a '79 Honda Prelude would be more fitting. Only year with the Honda-matic 2 speed outbox.

The first car I ever drove was my Dad's 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider (I was 14)- it got me hooked on sports cars.



For my 16th birthday, my dad surprised me with this hunk of junk that he paid $50 for (I wanted a Mini-Cooper)



Yes it is a 1960 Renault Dauphine - generally acknowledged to be one of the worst ten cars on the planet.

After struggling with this piece of crap for almost a year I sold it for parts and set out to find my next car. I found a 1957 Porsche Speedster for $600 but I only had $400 and Dad wouldn't loan me the $200 I needed to buy it so I wound up with this 1965 Turbocharged Corvair Corsa convertible (seen here with my first Land Rover a couple of years later).



Finally in the fall of 1971 I was able to purchase the first car I owned that did not have any parental intervention involved - my 1956 Porsche 356 Carrera:



I still have the Porsche

1960-something Pontiac Bonneville four door land yacht. My dad and I never got it to run, so it was replaced by a 1984 Pontiac Trans-Am. That lasted 3 years until a 1989 Jeep Wrangler supplanted it.
