My First Car I finally saved up enough money to buy myself a car, so I set out to track it down. My journey started out on a spring day, when the trees started to grow leaves shading the sun over my house. First, I drove to the store to get a newspaper, for I had already spotted a potential lead a few weeks back. As I searched through the classified section, I had my fingers crossed. I immediately spotted it. Because I had saved a pile of cash through the winter, I could afford it. I viciously dialed the number; then, there was an answer and the man invited me right over. I was surprised. Not long after I spoke with the man, I arrived at what appeared to be a repair shop; then, the man rolled up the huge bay door. There in all its glory rested a 1995 Honda Civic Del Sol. The car had just received a brand new florescent blue specialized protective flexible coating. On either side of the car, I could not find an imperfection. As I walked around the finely crafted automobile, I noticed the metallic ghost flames protruding through the flawless bodywork. An authentic wings west body kit wrapped its shell; this made the tiny car seem monstrous. A custom carbon fiber hood lay between the two carefully positioned Z3 fenders. All four seventeen inch ADR wheels had been polished to perfection. After that, I opened the driver door to find an immaculate interior. Each piece of this machine had been handpicked, from the Momo Steering wheel to the Tenzo quick shifter in the center. Once I eased into the bright red Sparco seat, I noticed the eight-inch custom molded pioneer TV. I snatched the hood release, and hopped out of the car. I casually walked to the front of the compact sports car, meanwhile my heart started to pound as if it were planning to pop out of my chest with anticipation of what lay beneath the feather like hood. I found a JDM D15B shinning, as if it just came out of the crate. Although this was slightly

    My First Car First cars are really special. Like most teenagers, I had to settle for a used car, but at least some of my first car dreams seemed likely to come true since my first car was a 1966 Mustang and it was my favorite color blue. It was the deep blue color of the ocean. My first car had some major problems, like the tendency to flood its carburetor at the worst possible moments and a thirst for oil which, made owning it a bad experience. The carburetor would flood just about…

    (Philadelphia). I was with my dad and my little brother who kept nagging about the ninety degree weather. We were so exhausted from waiting for one hour until the right car was ready to be auctioned. We were at the Philadelphia Parking Authority auction lot. I was so enthusiastic that I was going to have a car, that I can call my own, not my mom's minivan nor my dad's dodge charger. This was a reward from my parent because I was going to graduate High School before I turned seventeen. The car that I ended up…

    looking black Jeep Cherokee that my dad and I had just driven and hour to look at. It looked like every other one that I had seen in pictures, but there was the feeling that this one could possibly be mine. The week before, I had been furiously searching Craigslist and Jeep Forum classifieds looking for a Jeep, particularly a Cherokee with low miles, little to no rust, and the right price, between the years 1997 and 1999. With the tight guidelines that I had for the car, it made it hard to find one…

    “My First Car” Most people dream about what kind of car they want to get when they start driving. First cars are really special. Like most teenagers, I had to settle for a used car even if it was not my dream car. My first car was my most memorable car because I got my license in it, it was all mine, and I had a wreck in it. When it was time for me to get my license, I did not have a car. I had practiced driving my sister’s car because it was much smaller than my mom’s SUV or my dad’s truck…

    My Not So Fancy First Car I remember getting my first car like it was yesterday; it was a warm August afternoon and I was working an overtime shift at the local McDonald’s restaurant in an attempt to save up money so I could buy my first car. I turned around to hand out a bag of food and saw my mom smiling at me and dangling a set of keys. She told me to meet her out front so I got permission from my manager, who was apparently in on the surprise, and bounded outside. My mom met me there and handed…

The search began on a Sunday morning we went to several different dealerships, in search of the right mix of economy and style. Well, to be honest my mom was mostly interested in the economy part. The first dealership we went the car salesman seemed…

    I was consumed with insurmountable levels of joy and excitement; I was finally getting my first car. Well actually, allow me to dial that back just a tad, I was filled with excitement and joy about my new car, but it was not really for the same reasons that any old average-joe might be excited for. I was really excited to wash my new car. Being the perfectionist that I am, I immediately set out to make my car look as if it had just rolled fresh off the assembly line some twenty long years after the…
