cages cages, hmm....
i'm only 21 (therefore driving for 5 scary years) and have owned 4 cars, in which 3 were pieces o' crap cars.
1989 Hyundai Excel. slower than grandma takin a crap without her ex-lax. but, it was free! til i crashed it.
1986 Chevette (sh*tvette). again, it was free, and needed a car.
1989 Ford Escort PONY. yes, that's right, i got the pony version. the $400 pony version! this car looked so sad. one headlight was the plastic bucket with a piece of plexiglass duct-taped on it, and the turn signal was a bulb hanging from wires. kept me from getting pulled over!!
1988 Ford Taurus GL. oohhh yaahh. compared to what i've been driving, this is luxury. keyless entry, power ev'rything, and a 3.8L engine. i spank the crap outta this car. 133K miles on it. gonna run it til it drops.
Boyfriend has a 1988 Chevy Astro converted van with a 5 speed tranny. oddball. and a 1970 something Datsun Z280 with a V8 dropped in it and a corvette drive train. that thing will FLY, especially around cloverleaf ramps. not that i would know.
looking to get a 1963 corvette convertible. don't like the new ones much. older ones have more character!! ;o)
p.s. look out for the elderly drivers, taxi cabbers, and women in suv's with a cell phone up to their ear, a coffee in one hand, and putting on their mascara with the other!! they're dangerous!
