    Oh if we are talking about cars we are going to get, then I plan to get a 05-06 Lotus Elise.
    [​IMG] Its getting cheaper by the year. The 2005's are already almost half priced from their original. By next year or so, I might be able to find them for $20k :) (they currently are around $24-27K) I then plan to use the Honda Accord as my daily grocery getter and work transportation.

    That reminds me back when I was a teen. I was going to buy this beat up 2nd gen RX7 for $1200, but being a teen and only working part time, I wouldnt have the money then to put it back on its feet ;/

    1995 Buick Roadmaster. It's my current car and since it's everything is factory condition I'll probably drive it 20 more years. This isn't mine but this is the same model.

    My first car I could call my own was a 1993 Saturn SL2 sedan. Quick for a small sedan back then, but loud too, and not the good kind of loud. My dad bought it new and gave it to me two years later, and I kept the car until 2004.

    Why do I find it hard to believe that you're going to get a 1/4 of a million dollar car as your first vehicle [​IMG]

    Oh my god...a civic that isn't riced out. My mind has been blown...

    But srsly, Your car looks great :D

    What year?

    Speaking of 2nd gens, I'm actually pickup up an FC RX7 ('91) later this month/earlier this month. Only needs engine work.

    Here's the best part, it's free :D

    1973 Dodge Charger, 400, auto, red/white, looked like a giant Budweiser bottle. Jumped it over a snow drift and broke the mtr mount tabs on the block. Replaced with a built 383. Speedo went to 140 mph, and she would bury the needle. Traded it on a chevy cavalier, wtf was I thinking.:bang:

    I always wanted an Impala SS, they ride like a Caddy, perform like a Mustang....my dream.

    But around 1995, tragedy struck when Chevy pulled some "WTF is this shlt???" out of a hat, and the once mighty Impala SS was no more.

    Instead it was now a "practical", sensible car.
    The kind of car mom could take to the supermarket, or drop the kids of at school in....while being laughed at and ridiculed by the Mustangs, Camaro's and Trans-Ams...very sad

    1990 Mitsubishi lancer 1.8l Diesel.

    Still driving it, its got quite a list of problems; the steering rack is loose so there's an annoying knock every time you press the brake, brakes make noises but that's ok, the condition of the left ball joint is a bit worrisome, I think I have a lose engine mount and some other small issues.

    Still managed to get it through the vehicle road test and like aircool does 50-60MPG.

    Lots of spoiled kids around here with deep pocketed parents.

    My first car is the one I drive now; a 1992 Honda Accord 2,0i. I went many years without a car thinking I didn't need one (it's a money drain, after all) but last winter was so harsh that I finally decided to get one. Does fine for my needs. Fantastic build quality and easy to mend stuff yourself on, and right now it's pretty much in mint condition. Plus, considering the age and milage, it's a very nice drive!

    Yeah, I thought the same thing. I didn't realise it was that common that parents bought brand new cars to their kids. However, I'm actually glad my parents never spoiled me with anything.

    ^V-tec?



    That's just ludicrous.

    My parents are very wealthy, but they sure as **** wouldn't buy my first car, let alone a new BMW (does 3 series really count as BMW?).

    I had to get a job etc...
