'97 Mercury Sable, teal-blue. It died on I-95, inside the Baltimore Beltway. Steam hissed through the hood and then it died. I opened the hood and got shot in the face with steaming hot liquid.

I'm not smart enough to do the picture thing either, but here is a link to a 1980 Honda Civic hatchback 1500 GL with a 5-speed manual transmission. It had been my parents until they made me buy it from them in 1986. It was silver with burgundy interior. I looooooved my little car and I drove it for over five years.

1973 Mazda RX2 coupe...



Mine was an ugly copper-gold metallic color, and it didn't have the fancy wheels. It was fast as hell, but the engine had to be rebuilt a month after I got it. Paid $695 for the car, and $1100 to get it rebuilt! Sad Had it for 8 years. Actually a very cute little car, and surprisingly comfortable for a little Japanese car. I actually got laid in the back seat. Cool Thank God the back windows rolled down, she was 2 inches taller than me!!

Laughing Lucky you! My first car was a 1984 Buick Skyhawk-
there wasn't room to get laid in the back seat.
However, if you let back the front seat...
but you could still touch the back glass from the front seat!
But it drove like dream & had the very necessary "oh shit" handle on the passenger side.

Don't have a way to post a picture here-
or know where a picture of it might be.

Hmm... let's see, mine was gray, 2-door, had a spoiler in front (you noticed that every time you tried to park it), seems like the front was rounder & I would swear it was smaller (seemed that way on the inside), but yeah, that looks familiar.

Somewhere there is at least one picture of me standing beside it, back when I had a perm... maybe that's why I can't find that picture! God, the '80s sucked!

Just imagine this exact car completely green. We called it the big green booger, or sometimes "The Tank"... I rear-ended someone once and totalled the back end of their car, but barely cracked the grill on this monster. 1977 Oldsmobile Delta 88

1973 Nova, 4 door. Mine was even this color when I got, just picture it with the hubcaps missing and more rust. A lot more rust.

We slapped fiberglass in all the rust holes (didn't bother to sand it smooth) and sprayed it with a slightly darker metallic blue.

I hated that car. My second car was a 1973 Pontiac Catalina that I got from a friend of my dad, and he'd ordered the car new with all the high-performance goodies from the factory. I could fit 15 of my friends in it and still beat Firebirds in a drag race Cool

1989 Plymouth Sundance, and after that car died I stepped it up to a 1991 Plymouth Sundance, that I bought five years latter.

I'd show a photo but I couldn't get the img thing to work.

1961 Corvette $1350 worth of shoe shine/flipping burger money. I thought I was really cool.

I don't know how to do the picture-thingy either, but my first ride was a white 1972 Mustang Grande. It had blue stripes down the hood. Paid $1000 for it, and it was the best damn car I ever owned.
Could fix the thing with a butterknife and a roll of tape, and yeah, I almost had to a couple of times. I'm lucky if I can get bread out of my toaster when it's jammed thesedays, but back in the early 1980's I replaced this car's master cylinder, changed the starter, replaced a fuel line and a few other God-let-me-keep-this-thing-running-another-week tricks that I wouldn't even attempt on today's cars.
And I won't even mention the backseat and girls named Ginger, Betty and Mandy....Heh heh......
