Could it be?!?!
1981 Nissan Sentra Station Wagon
My first car. It had a light brown exterior and matching interior. Very
basic, but it had air conditioning, a must for NC. This car was an '81
model and despite what everyone at every shop told me, it existed.
Evidentally this was the first year it was made. I drove that car hard
and very rarely had serious problems. Great turning radius, tons of
space, giant bumpers. A great first car and daily driver.
1995 Eagle Talon TSi
I purchased this used program car with the help of my dad in 1996. It was
an automatic, but that's all I had ever driven and I felt my old Sentra
just wouldn't make it into the next year reliably. I test drove an ESi
(non-turbo) and the red TSi (turbo) and decided the TSi was worth the
extra money. While I enjoyed the car and felt it was an exceptional
sports car, there were two things that have since turned me from the
Talon/Eclipse scene. First of all, expensive! Tires, parts, service and
monthly payments are just too much for my liking. I could handle the
payments now, but the other upkeep is a tad high. Second, the Eclipse 1/4
modification groups are a bit childish and mechanically limited. If it
isn't bolt on or according to the true path, it's crap to them. My third
car opened my eyes to true car care and modification.
1973 Volkswagen Type 1 (Beetle)
In an attempt to get out of debt, I purchased a Beetle. The monthly
payments were dirt cheap and so were parts, gas, and service. When Dr.
Porsche designed this car, he truly created a total car. If I had to use
one word to describe it, balance is the word I would use. It's simple,
yet intricate. I still own this car and hope to never sell or get rid of
it if I can help it. It has served me for the past year or more extremely
well with little or no problems. he community of aircooled enthusiasts is
supportive and open to all forms of VW drivers/mechanics. There is
nothing this car can't do with the right human partner. I know more about
cars from owning a Beetle than any other car. It's not a car, it's a
cult, it really is.
2000 Volkswagen New Beetle12/16/99 - ??/??/??
After lots of research and financial reform, I decided to purchase a New
Beetle. Give me some time and I'll fill in more about it.
