    When I was 15 I worked everyday all summer long for my dad, digging ditches by hand so that he would use some of his tax return to get me an old truck. When summer was over I asked him about the 1000 dollars he said he would give me for a truck. He told me that he spent it. I was so angry at him, because he got my brother a truck already (Ram w/ slant six). He told me not to worry that he found me a deal. He spent 300 hundred dollars and got me this '90 Chevy Lumina Euro. Turns out that the only problem was it was overheating all the time. He knew what the problem was but the guy that sold it didn't. There were two fans in the engine compartment. With a different fuse for each fan. The guy only thought there was one fuse. That Lumina lasted me until I joind the Army and then half way through my contract. Only got rid of it because I totaled it. Never gave me problems. My brothers Ram however, didnt last him a year.

    Mine was actually a brand new 1989 Kawasaki Nijna 600. Lasted almost through the summer until some old lady ran a stop sign and I t-boned her totaling my bike and did who knows what to her car. I was knocked unconscious but from the pics my dad took hers was totaled too. My replacement vehicle was a 1989 Camaro.

    1999 Pontiac Montana. Saved up enough money to trade it in for a 2001 Honda prelude. Dealer took my van for a drive I guess to see how it drove and an 18 wheeler totalled my van. So they said you can have the prelude on us if you just squash it here. So I did lol

    It was the double wing/spoiler in the back that sold me in High school. Said to myself back then " No other kid have two wing spoiler on their car, only me!"

    Not my actual car but looks just like it. Picture pulled from Wiki.
