I haven't read through this all the way yet. I plan to later.

For me, it was a 1987 Nissan Maxima. It was a year older than I was. My dad bought it for me for a grand back in 2006, I believe. I drove the h*ll outta it. Never did maintenance. About two months after I got it my sad had to drop another grand into it. I believe it needed a new tranny? Anyway, it started billowing black smoke and wouldn't start, this happened about two weeks before I went to boot camp. So it worked out fairly well. I had the car about a year and a half or so at that point. My brother had a friend tow it to a junk yard.

I named her Peach, from Princess Peach in Super Mario Brothers. Because, she reminded me of an old school Nintendo. Also, Peach talked. She would remind me that the keys were in the ignition when I opened the door. Reminded me to buckle my seatbelt, etc. She was the only car I ever saw that could talk, literally.

Yours must have been white. My mother had a black Maxima. Hers said "What's up?!!!"

I bought my uncle's 1959 Ford Fairlane 500 for a good price. 292 V8, four door. Ho Hum. The automatic transmission died so I replaced it with a 3-speed straight drive which made things more interesting. 3.08 rear end for the auto had to be replaced with 3.55 which was better with a stick. You learn a lot converting from auto to stick!

Then I got what I really wanted, a 1962 Pontiac Bonneville 389 V8 2 door hardtop. I still think the '62 Ponchos are the best looking cars Detroit ever produced. They weren't slow either, a Super Duty Catalina was about as hot as it got in 1961-62.

1971 Plymouth Duster with a 225 slant 6 given to me by my dad in 1988.I eventually tore out the dying 6 and replaced it with a 360 V8.I ended up selling it to my brother.

if the 440 was stock, and i am not for sure it was given the number of 1969 Roadrunners had a 6 pack 440 in them (only 1432 made with a 440 six-pack) the horsepower would have been around 390 hp. more than likely the car was originally a 383 four barrel, rated at around 335 hp. stock and probably someone transplanted a 440 in place of the 383. the only other engine option was the 426 Hemi! hindsight, i seriously doubt that someone would have replaced the Hemi with a 440!

Yeah, I figured some people would feel old, with those '60s model cars being posted about, and I go with my first car in 2006. I'm 25, but sometimes I feel old.


She was definitely white. "the keys are in the ignition." Thanks, Peach. You're a lifesaver.
