    My Very First Car. — I bought this car used from my grandfather, and it was my first car. It was a good running little machine, never had any serious problems. It did have a recall from 1989 which I had done that made the car run far better. The supension was very tight, but the performance was lacking because it was not the turbo and it was 20 years old. I still loved to drive the car, and every where I went, people asked questions about it. It now belongs to my dad.

    Pros: Ran forever and very good suspension.

    Cons: Not a high performance car.

    300zx — it was a fantastic car. the response of it was amazing it picked up very quickly and just all around fun to drive. i always recieved a lot of looks with that car because there are not many of them left. the only down side i noticed to it was the engine was a bit of a pain to work on but thats the only problem i had.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: engine was hard to work on

    Fairlady Z — Fun, fast, car as long as you only need to carry 2 people in all. T Tops and bells & whistlles were awesome- will definitely have to have one again. Easy to change out roof at a stoplight, though I wouldn't suggest it if your passenger doesn't really know how. Get a bank account set aside for your repairs.

    Pros: Sporty, quick, good mileage for good power

    Cons: Pricey repairs

    Jdm Goodness! — I bought this car when I was 19 and drove it hard for the next four years & 100,000+ kms! It cost me a fortune in maintenance (relative to my income at the time) but I have no regrets! I still miss it sometimes.

    Pros: Very nice torque and cornering abilities.  T-roofs were a nice bonus in the summer for cruising White Rock.  Limited Slip Differential, 51/49 front/rear weight distribution.

    Cons: Very thirsty for Chevron premium!  Ate tires at an alarming pace.  Parts fairly expensive.
