Here we go I will finally post some pictures of my current ride. It is the first and only car I have owned so far, I have owned it for 7+ years. I bought it when I was 16 and most of the mods I did to it where then (so have fun with some of the stuff on the car). Hopefully will be replacing soon.
1989 Mercury tracer
1.6l I4 - 82 HP
Power Mirrors, Cruise and AC, but not much else
NO CUP HOLDERS ARE IN THE CAR!!
Things I did
CD Player/New Speakers (I blew the old ones with the new CD player)
I have had a lot of good times with this car, I kinda sad to get rid of it. I have hauled a kayak as well as a 4x8 sheet of plywood and many other large load trips. I somehow have only got under 30 mpg, even in city once. That was up in the upper peninsula of Michigan in the winter and all city driving, and it was still around 29. I have even slept in the car once. The best part is the car was cheap, has not cost much to up keep, and has never left me stranded, a perfect first car.
