Cost me $600 cash, and and about $1600/year for liability insurance.

Whoa, that is a lot of scratch for liability. I paid $1200 cash for my first car(1990 Chevy Corsica) and $500/year for liability.

I have had three vehicles which I remember fondly: a 68 Firebird 400 convertible, lucky I didn't kill myself, a 1977 Fiat x-19, tiny and broke down a lot, but girls loved it, good enough reason?, and 1989 I think Mazda pickup, just a happy time in my life and a simple, neat, suprisingly fun Pick up, a type that is just not made any more, import tarifs and changes in the market killed this kind of small truck.

Non existant from a dig and mine was bone stock. Around about 30 you could go wot and it would stick to the road and scream. It was definately a blast.

Thats what I always experienced, they could never keep from burning em up.

I had a 363hp SRT-4 that I sold because I couldn't get traction until 60-65 mph. It was a blast to drive on the highway/interstate, but around town and the track was just a smoke show no matter how I feathered the throttle. I thought with the bigger turbo I install would give me a little lag, I was wrong lol.

My hometown was about 50 miles from NYC, which added alot to the cost of insuring a new driver. At least thats what my parent's insurance agent told us 17 years ago.

I would love to have my old 1955 Chevy Bel Air coupe back. It was in extremely good condition except for developing a need for an engine overhaul (probably rings and seal job.) I liked the 55' better than the choice of most -- which was the 57' coupe. At the time I had no idea it would become a classic so I traded it in on my next car rather than fixing the engine and keeping it... Still miss that old car.

My wife liked to smoke them a little until I told her how much each tire costs!

She didn't drive it much after that.

It would easily be my 2008 Trailblazer SS! I just sold it this year to speed up getting my wife into school. It was BY FAR my favorite vehicle

I had a 1995 Volvo 855T that was alpine white with black leather and tinted windows. We had done a full 3" exhaust, Bilstein HDs & sport springs and a ECU reflash. There was something totally awesome about 300hp wagon making 17psi... really miss the sound of the inline 5 too.

    • Day 70 (6/13/21) - My wife filmed me taking swings with an 8-iron and Driver (w/o a ball) in the backyard. Positions seemed pretty good in the backswing, but in the downswing, I noticed that I have a tendency to let the club open up as I started down, thus requiring a correction at impact. Based on this information, I did several more swings focusing on keeping the clubface square to my line throughout the swing. Will work on ingraining this feeling again tomorrow. 
    • Every other weekend I play a modified version of match play with a friend of mine.  We play all 18.  Today I lost 8 to 6.  However...we also keep a cart score:  the winning/tying score, each hole, being the cart score for that hole.   Our previous low cart score had been +4.  This morning we managed a +3.  
    • Whoever chose this course (me) should be punished. And @georgep too. Apologies.
    • I recorded my swing in face on and down the line and have uploaded it here. Please critique and provide feedback. Appreciate your time on this! Thanks! 11 HCP. 8 Iron. Looking to optimize swing and learn to score in Golf.  
    • Got a new birdie on #18 today. Hit my best drive of the day through the end of the fairway into a swale of rough short of the apron leading to the green. Had about 65 yards to the pin, so too a bit off a 9-3 sand wedge. Hit the approach to about 12 feet, and rolled in a left-to-right putt to end the round with a birdie.
