79 Fiesta Great Little Car — A Yellow 79 was my first car bought for $900 w/ 88 thousand on the clock in 1985. I was 16 and hard on it. the only time it failed me was my fault for running out of gas. In stop light races I never lost to a Rabbit (the HOT car to have @ my HS). I added a sunroof myself, learned how to replace brakes,put ghia interior in, and drove it for 3 years. My dad took it over when I replaced it and he drove it as a second car untill it finally died w/nearly 180 thousand miles on it by then in 1991/2. He sold it for parts for $350. I miss it to this day. Cheap, fun, quick, reliable, great MPG.

Pros: MPG, cheap, reliable, fun

Cons: none

My Second Car — It was a cute car and two of my brothers had one with great success, however the one I purchased was yellow for a reason. It was fun to drive but I went through two engines. Then one day I crashed it and can still hear the ringing from the tin it was made from.

Pros: I learned a great deal of how to fix engines and brakes and transmissions and CV Joints and...

Cons: Two engines burned out the third piston oh and everything else broke too

Cheap, Reliable, Great Little Car — This car was given to me for free by a friend and other than bein brown was a brilliant car. It took me and seven other people in it once with the only problem being the exhaust scraped on the road slightly! If I hadn't of messed up replacing the points I would've kept it for a lot longer

Pros: Cheap to run and maintain

Cons: It was brown!
