Oh yes my first car was a 1985 Hyundai Pony. It was a hand me down and lasted me through my teen years. Back seat was out to good use quite a few times too. I got to say if anything Hyundai build solid rear seats and material did wear out either.
My first car was a 1994 Acura Ls coupe. I remember when I first got it all of my friends loved it and always wanted a ride. It was a great car but the only thing it was lacking was a bit more horsepower. Then the GSR model came out in 97' and I kicked myself. after I just passed it down to my brother in highschool and never looked back.
Your picture looks like it could've been MINE. Bought a red '63 Spider in Denver, tried to drive it
to Chicago and blew it up in Hayes Kan. Left it there and took a Greyhound bus the rest of the way.
You're right about $2.00 in gas and a qt of oil/week!
The first car I had was a 89' Honda civic wagon. It was the ugliest brown color you would have seen at that time, but the cabin space surprisingly sufficient. I hauled a lot of things in that car and then eventually when I got my dog he made the back seat his so now one wanted to go near the back. i decided to let it go and now just own a 1997 Acura EL. I've been looking at the ILX for a while now and even test drove it. Just waiting for my fiance to come back and make the approval. then I'll have more input about the ILX like you guys.
Currently driving a 2009 Acura CSX but my first car that I actually owned was a 92 Honda Prelude SRV. I still miss the car till this day. Whenever Acura decides to come out with the ILX coupe I would get rid of the CSX in a heart beat but now ill just keep a close eye.
