'83 Dodge D50 Diesel, not the Cummins, but the little midsize trucks they sold for a couple years w/ the mitsu turbo diesel in them. Smoked like a mother, but had decent power, and 28 mpg.

First vehicle or first vehicle that actually ran?

My first was a 1979 mustang, I had the car for about 4 months and towed it more miles than I drove it, I finally sold it for scrap.

First vehicle I actually put a few miles on was my 1982 3/4 ton chevy truck. Bought it with 200,000 miles on it, drove the piss out of it, built a 10 second drag truck out of it and drove the piss out of it some more... today its still sitting in my driveway with around 500,000 miles on it, the drivetrain isnt ready for retirement yet but the body is solid rust. This is probably her last year, this winter when I order a new 2500HD, I'll probably strip the ol 82 of good parts and scrap the body. Gonna be a sad day, that trucks given me 10 good years :banghead:

'74 Vega. With cast iron sleeves. Rear seal was gone. Leaked a quart of oil a week. Cost $75 bucks. Had it for 5 years. Rugged, tough. Even drove it on a closed motocross track. I miss that car. :banghead:

That's funny slow. I had a 73 Vega. One big piece of crap. Had more rust than solid metal. I had to fill up the oil and check the gas. Never did drive straight. The front end needed tons of work. Man.... that was a nice car, I miss mine too. :banghead:

76 VW Rabbit. Bought it from a guy at a local funeral home that was a apprentice mortician. 🤣:banghead: I was poor and it was a small car that got good gas mileage. Besides, the front seats would lay down almost horizontal! :banghead:

1981 Ford 4-Door Escort. POS. The exhaust was taped together, so about a month after I bought it, it caught fire in the school parking lot and burned up.

After I received the insurance check I went out and got a 1981 Ford F150. Straight six with a 4 speed, bench seat and no options what so ever. I drove that truck until 1994 and put 380k miles on it. :banghead:
