Here's another thread just for fun...what was your very first NEW car?

After driving 25 different used cars from 1969 thru 1986, I bought my first new car...a 1987 Pymouth Horizon 4-door, 2.2L, auto, black. I worked for a Chrysler-Plymouth (may Plymouth rest in peace...) dealer at the time as Parts Manager. I tricked the Horizon out with Omni GLH parts...front air dam, fog lights, etc. and a rare Direct Connection (remember them?) rear deck spoiler. Sort of a pseudo-tuner car...

In 35 years, I've only had 3 new cars...
1987 Horizon
1991 Dodge Caravan (still own the darn thing, it has been a great vehicle...145K miles and still running, although the paint is starting to shed at an alarming rate)
2001 PT Cruiser

I'm hoping the Solstice will be the next one!

New cars...only 2 that I remember....> 1986 Nissan 200-SX and 2001 Ford Escape (intro model year). Loan is up on the Escape soon freeing up valuable funds for the Solstice :smile

My first NEW car was a Mazda GLC. Slow as ****, but it was FUN. It had a 1.4 liter engine with a slick 5 speed. I HAD to shift all the time to keep it moving :D Still got 30 plus MPG no matter how hard I drove the car. Up to 36 if drove normal.

I am hoping that this car will be fun to drive also. Looking for over 30 MPG on this one as I am getting 25 to 26 on my TL.
