Iride I love that car!!! I wish I had that car as my first learner one!! .

I was going to ask the same question from TaMMa about the slippery road test because I too watched it on TopGear and that made me think to go to Finland to test it .

One day I will def go and test on the test track where F1 driver showed the car

LOL, yeah it may be cool now but it wasn't when I was 16 and other kids were in '57 Chevy Coups!!

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I would care less about other kids when I had this car no one would ever see me cry! Instead would have sat in it proudly even if I had to run it with my trusty old feet (like flinstones! )

My two favorites from a while ago were a '67 XKE Roadster, and, more recently, a Mitsubishi 3000 GT Turbo in (as my wife called it) Midlife Crisis Red. I've had other pretty cool ones along the way but that DeSoto - hmmmmm

ROTFL @ Jody's Midlife Crisis Red.....She's got quite the sense of humor!!!

I feel your pain...all my girlfriends were driving around in Fieros and Cavaliers or Daddy's truck....I had a '75 in 1990. Tho I did learn how to change a radiator, alternator, several batteries, how to change plugs, wires, rotor, and that if you get water under the distributor cap at the car wash, the car won't start.

I also learned how to change the rear end out...my brother helped with that and showed me all what the posi-traction was and how the gears worked in the pumpkin and on and on. There wasn't much I didn't have to do to that car. I spent lots and lots of Saturday afternoons in the garage with Dad and big Brother. The car rules of our house were if you drive it and break it, you learn how to fix it.

Being involved with them also fostered fantastic memories and a real knack for doing smokey burnouts!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

my first car was a 88 cutless supreme. It was my brothers first car then we sold it to my dads best friend for his daughters first car then we bought it back for my first car. But then for a grad present my dad gave me his truck becuase he got a new one. So then I had a 97 ford F350 with a 3" lift. So that was pretty wicked. Now I drive my ford escape for my every day vehicle and my fiance has a 08 ford f150 harley davidson for his every day car then he has a 08 Nissan Altima 2 door coupe that he races...so we have fun! Lol...you can tell im a ford girl...

Good Lord!!! Did we have the *same family???*
My brother insisted too that if I was going to drive a car, I'd know how it runs, too! Like you, I learned how to dry out a distributor cap, change oil, tires, tranny fluid, fix the links, etc. To this day, I thank him. I can't ever claim to be a mechanic...but can't be 'lead down the primrose path', either!

I also thank my dad & brother!!! I ended up working for several different car dealerships before becoming a house mommy. I don't get taken advantage of when buying or repairing cars either. Knowledge is power and I'm thankful to have what knowledge I do have.

Here is my first car, ignore us peeps there haha, it is a '90 Daihatsu Charade and I still have her. I named her Sharon or Shazza. She is my ride when I am living in Australia. She has taken me to Brisbane and Melbourne twice and other various locations all over NSW including off roading during camping trips. This little 2WD kicks butt!

Here is my car in the USA, nameless at the moment but a '95 Z28 Camaro. I love this car and this pic I took of it haha
