-What was it?
1992 ford tempo. paid 600$ for it.
-How long did you own it?
2 years
-What did you love about it?
In alberta it's a pain in the ass to buy a used car because if it's older then 10 years you need to get an inspection done to register it. I bought it from a mechanic who did an inspection for me so I didn't have to deal with all that crap. It was pretty decent in the snow, it was an easy car to learn manual with and it was somewhat good on gas.
-What did you hate about it?
Previous owner put plastic c-tire hood scoops on it. for some dumb ass reason he also installed a passenger seat in the drivers seat and didn't reattach the seatbelt latch, and for some weird reason he stripped the bolt to attach a seatbelt latch. So the front seats only had one passenger belt. COMPLETELY ILLEGAL. If I ever had a passenger we would need to tie the seatbelts together. All other times I'd attach mine to the passenger latch. It was rusty as fuck. Every two months there would be a new problem. Battery issues, power steering went, then in the last 3 months I owned it the climate control fan went in a massive spark show. Last 3 months were during the summer so I had to suffer with no a/c. Then the key broke off in the ignition and I didn't have a spare. The previous owner broke off the door locks so no one could steal it. Eventually I locked myself out and had to break the window to get in. Didn't even both taping it up as I was getting a new car in a couple weeks. I had it crushed once I bought a new car. Curse this piece of illegal shit.
-Did you have sex in it?
foreveralone. funny story though. I picked up this smokin hot girl for a ice cream date and halfway to dairy queen sparks started to shoot out from under the dash. I get within a block of DQ and a massive puff of smoke comes from under the dash and the car completely stops. We had to push it to the side of the road. We then went to DQ and had our date then I dealt with my piece of shit car. Never seen that girl afterwards. turns out the previous owner installed a command start and the wire connecting it to the CPU caught on the gas pedal and it pulled out a few other wires and blew a fuse.
-Any other interesting facts?
I parked it at my moms acreage when i left for school. A year later I came home and needed it for work. when I opened the trunk a family of mice had made a large nest in there.



Sexy red interior with a smashed window.

Great thread btw, this brings back some horrible memories.

This thread rocks.


-What was it?
1997 Acura Integra SE

-How long did you own it?
~3.5 years

-What did you love about it?
Unbelievably reliable. Torquey for a little 4-banger. Super practical hatchback. Pretty nice 5spd tranny.

-What did you hate about it?
Interior was dated before the car rolled off the assembly line. Pretty barren on the options list. Weird-looking front end.

-Why did you sell it?
Saved $20k, bought a BMW.

-Did you have sex in it?
Yes.

-Any other interesting facts?
I sold the car to an Irish lady in her 70's. She was moving to rural France... and after buying the Integra from me, she packed up all her belongings into the hatchback and shipped it to Paris. It is now probably one of a handful of Integras in France, where the Acura brand does not exist.

-Post some pics.

-What was it?
1989 Audi 90 Quattro

-How long did you own it?
8 years, and 700,000km

-What did you love about it?
So many things...

- It was partially responsible for my love of rally. At 16 years old I was flipping channels and the Sprongl brothers went sliding by the screen in the same car my mom owned. I was hooked on rally from that moment on.

- The dashboard will forever be my favorite. There is just something about the B3 chassis dashboards that are so 'right'. Its the perfect design, and that orange-red lighting is perfect too. I could literally sit in the driver's seat for hours on end just enjoying the artistry of that design. To this day I carry the orange-red lighting over into each of my project cars as a homage to the car.

- Um, rally car? It started as my street car in high-school and Uni. Halfway through uni I stripped it for rally. We won races together, we lost races together, we wrecked and rebuilt together. I think my Audi was closer to having a great golden retriever than a car, if I'm honest...

-What did you hate about it?
Nothing. The last few years it was definitely underpowered, but after so many kilometers and experiences together...you can't really hate anything about it.

-Why did you sell it?
I was honestly bored with it. Having moved to the west coast, classic cars were much more practical than in Toronto and I longed to return to my first love of VW beetles (I didn't _buy_ a beetle, so technically the Audi was my first...though I've been driving my '75 beetle since I was 13). After 800,000km the shell was getting a little long in the tooth, though without any major issues. The transmission was a problem due to a racing incident, and when I drained large (10mm) chunks of syncro out of it I knew it was a matter of time. I saved the car for my little brother, and when he got his N I tossed him the keys and told him it was his for as long as the transmission held out. He got a good few months before it lost Reverse, 2nd and 3rd gear. Then I put it up on CL

-Did you have sex in it?
I owned an Audi in High School and University, and then a race car in my 20's. What do you think?

-Any other interesting facts?
The first engine was swapped out for a more powerful unit at 600,000km. The original engine went into my street audi and did a further 200,000km before I sold the car. Apparently it was swapped into a third shell and kept going. Audi 5 cylinders for the win!
When I moved across country with the car, I brought all the wheels and tires I had for it as well. Between gravel tires, track tires and winter tires I had 48 tires/rims in storage plus the 6 that were on/in the car. For years after I sold it I was giving away rims and tires!
In the winter your feet would freeze because the metal floors were so cold. The foot-well heaters weren't very effective, and I have 1-size-up racing shoes just so I could fit wool socks in the winter. The summer, on the other-hand, was brutal. The transmission tunnel would get so hot it would burn your leg if you were wearing shorts. To this day I have less leg hair on my right outside calf than my left.


The day I bought the car:


And very near to the end:

-What was it?
1987 Toyota Celica GTS Coupe

-How long did you own it?
~2 years

-What did you love about it?
It was a bright red 5 speed 2 door and I was 16, it doesn't get a whole lot better. The seats are still the comfiest I have ever sat in, it was fully loaded and absolutely everything worked, the interior was mint and of course I put a big stereo in it when the stock tape deck started launching tapes at me.

-What did you hate about it?
Not so great all season tires and stock shocks, and a little bit of rust. Oh and the oil leak was a bit of a hassle but not bad.

-Why did you sell it?
I spun a bearing at 468k, the JDM replacement engine I ordered was junk, and eventually I ran out of time and my parents made me scrap it

-Did you have sex in it?
Oh of course. Tonnes. Yep definitely lots of sex.

-Any other interesting facts?
I know the whole ownership history of the car, the original owner was the sales rep for Kelowna Toyota in the late 80's, he drove it for 2 years then switched to the 5th gen and the owner of the Penticton Kal Tire bought it and commuted from Kelowna to Pen and back every day. Because of that it had 437k and a flawless interior when I bought it since all it did was drive 1 guy up and down the highway every day (I found a shitload of french fries when I cleaned under the center console though). Eventually he traded in back into Kelowna Toyota and then I bought it at 15.

-Post some pics.
Not my pics but it looked like this:

The harder it gets driven, the better the gas mileage strangely
On its way to stage 2 of its life, getting a complete suspension overhaul not a single part spared with TEIN coils and OEM suspension parts all around plus a slam.
Shares underpinnings with the 2nd gen CR-V, however shares more parts with the DC5 and EP3 strangely.
Not worried about power, plenty enough for me already, has all the bolt-ons intake, tsx intake mani, catback.

1991 VW Passat G60 AWD

Owned it for about 4yrs

Loved that nobody could beat me... Especially in the Friday night meets back on river road in ft. Langley... If anyone remembers those

Hated that it was too heavy and was constantly fixing it.

Sold it because I bought a muscle car, and needed a change.

Of course had sex in it. Was a huge folding back seat and massive trunk. Made it in to a bed and had many great times in it.

Modded with upgrade blower, suspension, internals, and much much more.

Back in the day, nothing could beat it. That was back just before Fast and Furious 1 came out.

-What was it?
Jeep WJ limited with a 4.7L HO engine put in before I bought it. I added a cold air intake, ported + polished throttle body, intake manifold, clutch fan delete, full exhaust with electric dumps right after the header, 94 octane engine tune / tranny software, tranny shift kit, eibach springs, shocks, swaybars, staggered SRT8 rims

-How long did you own it?
Still own it, parked for now. Was always a bit of a project/gas guzzler / impractical. I drive a civic now

-What did you love about it?
The power, the size, the ability to really go anywhere and not really give a crap. Also was stupid easy to work on, and had pretty decent aftermarket support for tuners / bolt ons. It was also a bit of a sleeper .. no one would imagine a soccer-mom truck would do sub 7-second 0-60

-What did you hate about it?
MPG's + student income =

-Why did you sell it?
Haven't sold it yet. I might one day.

-Did you have sex in it?
Spoiler!


-Any other interesting facts?
0-60 in under 7 seconds, not bad for a 10 year old SUV!
Once fit ~14 people in it during high school, dem lunch time road trips.

-Post some pics.





And here's what happens when your hooning in the snow a little too fast and slam into a hidden curb:


Doesn't look too bad, but the entire front suspension was pushed in. This happened last February/March ... I got pissed and just parked it.
I've got the parts sitting in the garage ... now to just spend the time to get the rim fixed, put on the new parts, and get an alignment.

Maybe one day I'll get bored and throw a lift on it, and make it my winter car. But for now it's a paperweight in my garage

-What was it?
1981 Volvo 245DL wagon

-How long did you own it?
About 6-8 months

-What did you love about it?
4 speed with O/D manual transmission. It's what I learnt how to drive with

-What did you hate about it?
-Everything! floor boards were completely rotted through. The only thing keeping my feet from hitting the pavement below was the carpet.
-Drank/wasted fuel like crazy! nobody knew how to service/repair the stock single SU carb on it. The only places that did were MB and I didn't have the money for that. Only in the future did I find out that many decent motorcycle shops should be able to help me out. Too bad there wasn't many of those shops in Regina Sask back then.
-Trying to pick chics up in that thing.
-in the cold (anything below 1C) it would hiccup terribly and sputter regardless of how much I revved it. So bad that I'd be stranded in the middle of intersections with cars honking at me. So embarrassing.
-No a/c on the prairies and praying you dont' hit red lights
-Wiring was total shit. Literally all the insulation around the wires under the hood lost their insulation and started arching really bad (car wasn't even 20 years old at that point this was the late 90s). The starter would activate when the car was already running..like it was possessed


-Why did you sell it?
See above

-Did you have sex in it?
I was too shy back then

-Any other interesting facts?

Since starting my reply to this thread, I will always have a respect for a stock, good running car. I guess that's how I can buy a $5500 ford Focus 2 years ago and be content with it. Sure it's nice to have a fancy car with doo dads with all the gizmos, but when I think about having it bad, I think back to when I graduated HS and was given this as my first car. I was sooo broke and hardly made any money at my part time jobs, yet was encouraged to go and get a student loan and start university as opposed to work to get a decent car. My parents were in no financial situation to help me out much either.

The good old days weren't always so good.

The car was exactly the same as the one below, but all the same shade of brown.
My GF at the time was amazed I was able to sell that thing!
