I just bought my first car today!!!

Well I had been looking in the local classifieds and I saw an ad for a 1979 Pontiac Firebird, so I figured I'd give it a shot...so I took some cash and what do you know $2400 later I drove it home! Its got a small block 350 V8 and its loud!!! I haven't gotten to drive it too much since I don't have a tag for it yet, but I can't wait! Heres a camera phone picture to hold you over until i get my digital camera back.

Nice car man. To think my first car was a 76 Dodge Dart.

It must be nice to live somewhere that cars dont rust.

Re: I just bought my first car today!!!

Thanks guys! It definitely rusts here- but somehow this one managed to be in pretty good condition. I'm just really grateful I found it, its an awesome car. I'll definitely take some pictures tomorrow and post them up, it looks much better than my camera phone makes it look.

Re: I just bought my first car today!!!

**** it's in a great condition. i'd be interested to know exactly what the hull is made of. It looks like it has a stainless surface or something that oxidate. Anyways, nice buy. My first car is gonna be a 97 Lincoln Towncar. I just love the way it drives and the comfort. My first car kinda was a 95 Sable and now a 97 Sable LS. It seems i just keep getting bigger engines and more comfort.

Anyways, sweet car!

Re: I just bought my first car today!!!

Great score. I can't tell you how much i've dumped into my 1st car. It was a 1974 Corvette I got when I was 15. I drove it for a year and started tearing it apart. To this day and many engines and upgrades later i'm still not happy with it. Cars are worse than guitars!!! LOL. Congrats brother!

Re: I just bought my first car today!!!

haha thanks for all the compliments guys- it was definitely an awesome buy, I'm still surprised I got such a great deal!!! I'm already looking at all of the stuff I want to do to it and man, I think you're right Aaron_Jem_FP, cars are worse than guitars!!! I'd love to rock some skynyrd in it- but currently it doesn't have a radio !!! I'll have that changed pretty soon though!

First it starts with a radio...then before long you've got some 450HP crate engine, o/d tranny, new rear, suspension new interior kit and then that credit card bill comes in and choice words start flowing! lol.
