    Cool? I don't know about that. There's a 1989 Pontiac Firebird here somewhere.

    If you don't understand the argument well enough that you could switch sides and represent the other team, stop arguing.

    Had one of these as well - wasn't the most refined or comfortable car I ever driven, but 1 of the strongest engines I've come across.

    It never died.
    It just kept on going.
    It was eventually sold -not because there was anything wrong with it- for more than it was bought.
    ^this, mine was a bashed up farked rust bucket, could see the road beneath your feet the windows weren't sealed in anymore, so rain pissed through... but somehow it kept going and going

    I had a car very similar to rpm's one. A four-speed, 1300 POS Golf that gave me more uphills that anything else.

    The only pic I could find is one from when a mate of mine and myself went to Boknes to go visit some friends there - can't remember why my mate was chasing one of the girls with his plakkies though

    1967 Mini 1000S. Paid £500 for it at the time. Fitted radial-ply tyres which made the handling and roadholding even better. Was amazingly economical fuel-wise

    Cool Opel Corsa 1.3L Bakkie

    At 21 years of age in 1997, I bought myself my first car, a brand new Opel Corsa 1.3L bakkie at R56K (Before digital photos were really in, so I have no easy accessible picture.)
