Hey guys thought id start a thread about your first cars. What was your first car? What was great about it? What was not so great about it? What happened to it? Ill get it started! What was your first car? Silver 5 speed 1988 Holden Barina (basically a Suzuki Swift) 1.3ltr carby 4cyclinder. What was great about it? Learnt how to drive manual in it. Was a family hand me down, handled fairly well and had great fun learning how to drive the magnificent Adelaide Hills in this car. Taught me how to control a car. Had some great times attempting to do burnouts and handbrakies. Slow enough that I didn't die. What was not so great about it? Woefully underpowered at a time where I wanted to go very very fast. Was very scary when trying to overtake trucks. It wasn't exactly the coolest car on the block, I got laughed at and the girls weren't to impressed they all said it was "cute". What happened to it? One of my best mates now owns it. I recently sold it to him for $100 AUS and he loves it. One of my conditions for selling it so cheap was that I get to drive if on occasions. Thankfully I have now upgraded to something a lot faster and less embarrassing!
