What car did you want and what did you end up getting?

As young people (teenagers), many of us wanted to start driving as soon as possible (Well... I did at least). Once you got your license, it was time for your first car. What car did you "dream" about/wanted to have for your first ride, and what did you end up getting?

ME:

Always wanted Audi 80 4wheel drive, stickshift. I didn't care about leather or other luxuries to be honest. Still remember seeing it in some movie and falling in love with it, when i was 17 I think. I ended up getting 1996 Altima with stick, 156K miles. Ran great.

I needed a new car, I wanted a 3, and so I got one. Good talk

Impreza.... But got stuck with the 3. I love my 3 but I would rather the Sub for the winters I get here.

Re: What car did you want and what did you end up getting?

13 years ago when I was 16 I wanted a 3000GT VR-4

However- due to 16 year old budget issues I ended up buying an '87 Nissan Pulsar for $500. I think it was an '87. It caught fire a year later haha

Re: What car did you want and what did you end up getting?

wasnt really into cars much as a kid.. grew interest from Fast n Furious and NFS games lol... at 16 i just loved the look for lamborghinis.. then eventually fell in love with the 350Z (a more realistic dream car).. and ended up driving a Ford Windstar hahahaha!! (it was my dad's tho).. then my bro's Acura Legend was passed down to me after he got a STI.. a year later (or a year ago) i was looking at civics but ended up with a 3.. if i had money, i would probably go for an evo.. and final goal, a GTR

Re: What car did you want and what did you end up getting?

This is a great thread!

I really wanted a 1st Gen Toyota MR2 (don't ask me why, sure it had something to do with women...) but alas, I got an '83 Lincoln Town Car. Talk about polar opposites but the L.L. Town Car!

Guess I am old...
