Default Post the brochure of your very first car

I thought this might be fun, and a trip through memory lane. Some of us loved our first car, it represented freedom and maturity. Some have different memories of road side breakdowns, and weekends spent just trying to keep it running.

Post the brochure if you can find it of your very first car.

Man was I cool driving this 4 door in cherry red to high school in the mid 90s while blaring Even Flow from the Kenwood aftermarket CD player.
Especially helpful was that it no longer had that new car smell and sheen that all the nerds cars had. Rust and dents were so in in those days. Thanks Dad!




Luckily it got me to work often enough that I was able to trade it in for this in short order.

This really doesn't do it justice. Much better in blue. This little thing went like a bat out of hell.

I notice that almost every car posted in here has much cooler styling than almost everything on the road right now.
