Brings back memories, not all good ones. I started off with a low miles used 1978 Chevy Monza Fastback, putting the word fast anything in a 4 cyl Detroit of that era was an insult to the word fast, but it was reliable. Got hit by two drunk drivers in that a care and I was fine and even the car took the damage pretty darn good. The clutch on those cars went out almost like clock work every 20,000 miles.


My first new car was a first generation Ford Probe LX - I freakin' loved that car and still wish I'd kept it. Great mileage, Mazda power plant, rode great for a non GT version I had every bell and whistle on it.

Look at you. Nice first car!

Now you will be spoiled and you'll always want a nice new car.

At least you don't have to go through all of the issues that we did owning Junkers.

Mitsubishi cars and SUVs are awesome. Yet sometimes underrated. My wife has almost 110k miles on her Outlander. She hasn't had a single issue yet. We're starting to think that it may outlive us.

A used 1993 Eagle Talon in red and black. It was a nice car and quite snappy.

They make a good winter car as well. One of the fastest cars you find on the road in the winter here in the great white north.

Wouldn't doubt they are AWD models. That being said, my FWD model went nicely in the snow too. It also handled curves well the rest of the year. Just a nicely balanced car. There aren't many new cars like that anymore. Other than a couple cars out of Subaru.

BTW Devo, hows about posting the pic you mentioned in the start of the thread. Even if you have to take a pic of the photo with an iPhone.

Put it away, but I'll try to post another.

Been working on our master bathroom for 2 weeks now everyday after work. I'll try to post a picture of it as well. I've basically redone the entire room man. From the walls to the subflooring. It's coming out nice, but I'm shot and want to pull all of my hair out.

Just bought my first NEW car! It's only a Chevy Cruze, but it's a pretty cool little car. It has a ton of room too.
