    When I first got my license my parents let me drive their extra vehicle a 1995 Toyota Previa S/C. That thing was a drift machine on dirt. Mid engine, rear wheel drive, supercharged with bald tires.

    I had been saving money to buy a car since I was a kid and was looking for a 4Runner or Tacoma. I couldn't find anything good in my price range and needed 4 wheel drive to go snowboarding. I lost patience so I foolishly bought an 01 Subaru Forester. This was my first car that was all mine.

    1995 2dr Tahoe with TBI 350, it was blue with gold rocker panels and fender flares and blue interior. Had a 96 reg. cab short bed Z71 in hunter green then a 98 reg cab short bed Z71 step side in green with chrome rockers. I still have a 1998 2dr Tahoe LT in white. 98k when I got it in 2003, 218k miles today and no real problems. That one got me through college, now it just sits :(. Here's a picture. There's my neighbors Inferno in the background.

    Oh Toyota, back when you made weird, quirky, and fun cars. Now days its just bland city for the most part. I mean the Previa, the previous 80's van(I think it was called the Space Cruiser in Japan, looked like the shuttle craft on Star Trek), the MR2, Celica All-Trac, Supra(any gen is awesome IMO), the 80's 4wd Turbo trucks and 1st gen 4Runner. Hell you even had weird normal cars. Camry station wagon with 2 rear wipers, AWD Camrys, goofy ass AWD Tercel wagons, sporty RWD Corollas with a really nice DOCH motor. Hell even Lexus was weird in the early 90's, you could order an SC300 or ES300 with a manual.

    Please Toyota, make weird, fun stuff again. And I'm not talking something like that POS C-HR SUV thing.

    Amen to that! I learned to drive in one of the Space Cruiser vans with a 5 speed manual. Looked just like this. At one point you get this in 4wd with a turbo and a 5 speed.

    Bitching Impala there. Loved how you could order these things up to retard levels of performance back then, no matter the trim level or body style. You want the 427 tri-power in a 4 door station wagon??? Sure, just check the right option boxes.

    My first car was a 68 Dodge Charger, and right behind it in this picture is my wrecked 71 Mustang Mach 1. I was pretty rough on these cars, and had taken off to the military by the time my little brother took this picture for posterity. I'm glad he did.

    I should have said that my second car was the Mach 1.

    This was my hotness... 1980 Mazda RX7. My friends and I used to hang out the sunroof all the time and honestly it was probably broken down more than it was driving...

    That sucks. Hopefully someday you can get it back.

    Years ago I sold a 1959 chevy 1-ton dually flatbed that I had inherited. I totally regret selling that now and I’ve been looking for it but nobody knows where it went.

    1966 yellow Pontiac GTO, black interior, 3 deuces and a 4-speed, and a 389, just like the song :cool:. Bought it in Columbus, GA while a candidate at OCS, Ft Benning, early '67. Got married in June, right after being commissioned. My bride couldn't drive a standard shift, so I traded it in the fall of '67 for a new Olds 442.

    My second vehicle- this 1989 Toyota pickup, 4wd with the 3.slow motor, I’m sad I don’t have a picture of when I finished it- fiberglass all around, bed cage and long travel, that truck went anywhere I told it to go
