In my gallery:

http://www.shreveport.com/forums/vie...76&k2=1&gid2=0

It was either an 87 or an 89 (I think 89) Ford Ranger 4x4 with a 2.8L V6 and a 5 speed. I got it in March of 1993, at the end of my Junior year at Byrd. I kept it until the end of my first semester at LSU, when I bought my second car (and my first new car) a 1995 Acura Integra:

http://www.shreveport.com/forums/vie...76&k2=2&gid2=0

1.7L 4 cylinder (180hp) and a 5-speed but it weighed nothing. That was the car that I once got up to 140 on the bridge between Lafayette and Baton Rouge. That's the fastest I've ever gone on land.

This is as close as I could find to my first!
The lovely Ford Galaxy 500! It was even ugly then, but I didn't care I had my freedom!

First car was a truck. I was at LA Tech and working on a dairy to help pay my books and tuition for school. Did some hunting, fishing and rides to Wilmart on the Chatam Highway. We would pick up frozen drinks and head to horsefly lake and name we made up for the amount them around that lake way back in the woods you see. I can tell NO more as to what might have happened then

Well let's see..
The year was oh.. 1984, I suppose after having experienced my brothers wrecking a few of the family cars, dear ol' dad wouldn't let me drive the family cars So I saved up my pennies and bought a motorcycle.. dear ol' dad just LOVED THAT



a few years later, 1987, saved up my pennies and bought a brand new/used 1976 Malibu Classic. I just loved this car, the stereo I put in this car cost as much as the car did
here's a pic taken from my 1st apartment balcony..




Here's a lousy a pic.. but this was a fun car.. this was a 1976 Pontiac Catalina.. a big ol' gas guzzling engine in this one.. Inherited this from my dad, who inherited it from his sister... the year was around 1994, and this '76 catalina had only 40,000 miles on it.



and my current pride and joy.. a real workhorse.. my brand new used Dodge Ram 1500

Pokie, I think you should have went with this as your first car. It probably would have been a little shorter!!!

I was allowed to drive my moms car, but in October of '88 I bought my first car: 1980 Mazda RX7. I loved this car and kept it 14 years untill a tree fell on it (notice the speakers behind the seat!) I now drive a 1973 VW that I am currently restoring, nothing left but body/paint! And my next car will be the new CAMARO!

That is a classic you have there vixweb. Will you keep it the original color ? My wife had a RX-7 and that thing would haul ass. She took out a mailbox with it and I am glad that is not what she drives now

I'm gonna paint the Bug a darker blue-baby blue just isn't me! I've replaced the old VW seats with some nice buckets out of an'05 Acura-a much nicer ride.Yes,the Rx7 was pretty fast after a few MODS, And I think your wifes current Ride will protect her a little better from that mail box!

LOL, I'm sure I've never been accused of being "metro"

Funny thing about that truck.. I swore for years, I'd never be caught dead in a pickup truck.. probably had something to do with all those "country boys" I went to highschool with in south bossier.. wasn't my "crowd"

But over the years.. between my hobby of wood working and other such things.. I was always needing a truck to go to home depot with, cartin' junk to the dump etc..

Finally decided to start looking for a used truck, found this one.. lots of miles on it, but in great condition. It gets a work out.

You may become a good old boy yet I live in south Bossier I spent all my early years in Shreveport. Capt. Shreve area. Your truck looks brand new. You would be amazed at how good it would look with a dead deer hanging out of the back make that two deer, one for you and one for me
