Mine was a 1985 Mustang 2.3 auto coupe that I bought for $4K back in 1991. The car ran great and looked identical to the one in the pic minus the 5.0 emblem. Ended up trading it in on a 91 Suzuki Samurai in 1993

These are both actual pics of my cars. (digi-scanned of course)

My first car... a '66 Mustang. Bought for $50, Summer of 1983.
200cu in inline 6, 3-speed on the floor. The car was a total turd... but safe for a 16 yr old.


My 2nd car wasn't such a turd... a '67 Camaro, bought for $1500 Summer of 1984.
It came with a 307, Muncie 4-speed and 2.73 open rear... Eventually, it was powered by a 427, Muncie 4-speed and ford 9" with 4.11's and a locker. I built the motor myself, in my parents garage. MORE than enough power for a 17yr old kid.

1987 stanza in blue with leaky everything and horrible rear suspension.
There was this one heavy chick (maybe 20 pounds over what she should've been - perfect for me cause she's still do-able but with low self esteem!!! I love high school!!!!) who whenever she was in back (often) the muffler would hit the ground.

I got it with 140,000 miles from grandpa, we let her go at 155,000 two years (and 5,237,543 cigarettes) later.

1987 Saab 900S

Replaced the transmission once, the clutch twice, the alternator, brake fluid leaks, power steering leaks, muffler fell off, no speedometer lights, speakers were sinking into the trunk, and other things.

The best thing was when a rear suspension bracket broke and the rear-end of the car would go back and forth in high winds.

When the transmission needed to be replaced for the 2nd time I upgraded to a 2002 Nissan Sentra. The Saab was a POS, but it did last though high school. and college.

Now to follow that up I've got something in the works w/ my car that should put it over 500 on a safe tune. Then once I slap the DART block and pull all the parts off my 306 and put them on the DART I should be see right around 7-800.

Seriously though love that color combo and would like to see some side shots of it.

I had an 86 Saab 900S and it wasn't bad. Except for when a rotor went bad and it would have cost me more for the rotor than what I paid for the car. Peppy lil motor though for such an old car.

Sold that off privately and got a '98 ZX2 Escort as a daily driver. I'm at 167K and still going. Driving this bitch til the wheels fall off b/c w/ the Stang I need something that gets good MPG.

In 1993 I was 18 yrs old and driving a Maroon 83' Oldsmobile Delta 88. The car was like a freakin boat; it was a damn joke. I swear to God, I think I pushed that damn car more often than I drove it.

My front bench seat didn't work properly either and I couldn't fix it, so I got a big-ass log of firewood and placed it between the drivers side of the seat and the rear seat in the floor-board to keep the seat from moving back and forth while I drove.

It did have a Chevy 350 engine though.....can't say anything bad about the power plant.

I had the same car and bought it in 1983. It was totalled later that year and I replaced it with a 1977 model.
In '86 I pulled the V-6 out and put a hopped up 302 in it.

Then I put 2 Rockford Fosgate Pro-18" where the back seat used to be and hooked them up on a RF Power 1000 amp.

I had more stereo than the car was worth but I was young and had a heck of a system.

If only I would have spent all that money on HK 91's or Colt AR15's or xxxxx!

Engine is 455 cu Oldsmobile, with Edelbrock intake, 750cfm 4 barrel carb, MSD ignition, Hooker headers, Pypes 2.5in exhaust with x-over, tranny is a TH-400 rebuilt by B&M, rear end is a 12 bolt GM, rebuilt by Currie.

I did most of the mechanical work, and all of the body work, including paint, in the garage at my house, in NC. Paint is custom mixed by me. Its House of Kolor, 2 parts chrome yellow to one part lemon yellow, with a small amount of gold pearl in the mix, topped with a clear coat with the same pearl, then final clear coat.

I'm not sure I have many other pics. It doesnt make it out of the garage too often...I'll see what I can find.

The car was driven out to VA from CA by a marine and sold out here. No rust but, it was painted a shocking metallic orange with black torque thrust rims. Started a fascination with orange muscle cars...

I miss that car.
