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.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
