So, I don't have a car yet, but I thought it would be great to hear what you guys' first car was and any stories that go with it. :D

Dont have special stories sorry, people are as*holes here, they damage your car because they are racists or do it just for the fun of it.

Well, my first car. . .over 30 years ago, was a Chevy Vega. Biggest lemon on the planet! LOL It taught me many things though. Like how to do a few simple repairs. . .which I have all forgotten, and the first name of the mechanic I saw almost weekly for that POS! It also gave me a life long dislike of >most< Chevy and GM products!
my first car was a Vauxhall Astra... i was 11...
No joke. as i have been awarded a specific type of disability benefit for life i was eligable to join a UK Government scheme that takes the specific benefit and uses it to pay for a brand new car for three years (If the car costs more than the benefit creates in the 3 year period, i pay the extra and i get cash back if it's cheaper... though i've only had the latter happen once). once the 3 years is up, have to replace the car.
the first car i had that i could drive (At 16, which is the legal age to drive in the UK if you are registered disabled) was a Vauxhall (They were the only garage in the area that was part of the scheme at the time) Zafira.

My first (20 years ago) was a '79 Chevy Monza wagon. It wasn't much but it got me around some.

My first car was my dad's old 1989 Toyota Corolla and then his old 7 series BMW (1985 model).
The first car i bought and owned myself was a 2001 Nissan Primera CVT (Nismo edition) and now i have a 1995 Toyota Celica, she's been lowered, 18" alloys with low profile tires, sports shocks, tinted windows with a large pod filter and an exhaust system.
I'm not much of a car nut... as long as it get's me from A to B, is reliable and looks nice I'll be happy.
I'd love to own the new Camaro, Mustang GT500 super snake, BMW M3 or a classic American muscle car like the old Mustang GT500 Super snake, Camaro or an Impalla =)

My first car was a 1981 Mercedes-Benz 300D. It was a pain in the aft to run since it ran on diesel. It no pick up whats of ever.
My first car that I bought was a 2000 Subaru Outback wagon. This was an excellent car and ran forever. Then I traded it in for a 2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5GT limited. It is a borderline sports car since it is a sedan with a turbo charged engine. I might not need all of the pickup that it has but it can get me out of tight spots.
I have also driven my ultimate nod as TFan...2009 Nissan 370Z.
