So I see this quiet often on the forum. Kids...Young people not even out of High School wanting an STi or WRX for a first car. There have even been 15 year olds that get on here and ask what we think about them getting a WRX/STi when they turn 16. Well, no one is going to tell you what to do, but we can give you excellent advice. Especially the older guys on here, and for obvious reasons. --They've been there, and some even have kids themselves.
Anyway, what you get is ultimately up to you and your parents. Don't think we're going to say anything different than your parents or what any other mechanic your parents might talk to will say. They'll say to start out on something "expendable, easy to drive, and economical."
So I thought I would share my and my best friend's first rides. I had an 84 Chevy pickup and he had an 86 GMC Jimmy. Both of them were our grandfather's old beater vehicles and they were both given to us after they passed away. Now, I must say, I would'nt have traded these vehicles for the world. Even now I would never let mine go. And I'm so grateful that these were our first cars.
His Jimmy currently sits in the garage with the engine out...we never put it back together. It's all basically sitting on shelves And it's still for sale by the way! Watch the video for a trip back to 2011 and my senior year in High School. Under the thick sarcasm is much genuine love for our vehicles.
So everyone, what was your first car? Pictures and Videos to help us visualize how ...wonderful... they were would be great!
