I saw pics of my dads ford f-150 Eddie Bauer edition and it was the sh*t.
He sadly swapped paint with a rock wall one night, and tore it up...

Didn't the Yugo have back window heaters so you didn't catch cold while pushing it?


Funny, I thought the trabant had that

 

I know I have a picture of my grandfather fixing the Yugo somewhere. :D

But, it was a nice car until it started breaking down a lot.

BMW 3 series. Looked just like this:

1985_bmw_3_series_325e-pic-34458.jpeg

 

First and last time i got involved in a car accident with my brother was in this car. Survived by pure luck and had back pains for over a year. Got crushed because the car in front of me crashed into a car riding half way on the wrong side of the road. My brother and i crashed into the car as well, then some big ass SUV comes crashing in the back without braking. 

 

So.. yeah i won't forget this car ever. The car was completely destroyed.

Some people just can't drive. You should have sued them all.

Mate same thing happened with my Aunt and Uncles BMW 535I, like he one pictured above in my family cars story, she was at a traffic light at the bottom of a  hill and a woman in a 2006 Kia Sorrento hit the back of the BMW which then hit a bull bar on the back of a Tarago therefore crushing the motor and a few other things, which basically made it not drive able, my Aunt was so pissed, she nearly slapped the sh*t out of the woman who hit her.

During my early to late teens a lot of muscle cars was being driven by my family, friends and school mates.

I do not know the name, But all I know is it was a Small british Car, About the size of a Coffee Table, With the Door on the Front of the car.

 

I'd love to know the name of it..

 

 

EDIT: Apparently it's German, and called the "BMW Isetta"

When I was young(er), these cars were the sh*t:

Spoiler

 

Back when the McLaren F1 was the fastest stock, production car:

Spoiler

 

I couldn't forget these rare / concept / emerging / other vehicles.

Spoiler

 

Of course I'll always remember the assorted Fast and Furious and Need for Speed Underground cars that some people find cheesy but I still love them.

 

There are still way too many for me to name and post pictures about.

 

And yeah, I know all of these cars are relatively new compared to a lot cars that are remembered here, but I'm pretty nostalgic about these cars.

2002_chrysler_concorde_lx-pic-15688.jpeg

 

1999 Chrysler Concorde. When I was like, a 8 year old, I thought that both that and the Dodge Intrepid were the sh*t.

 

I used to own a Concorde LXi, I realized that the piece of sh*t couldn't even last 120,000 miles (I bought it at 96,000), it has a engine design flaw where the coolant hose, a plastic and rubber doowacky, was run UNDERNEATH THE INTAKE BETWEEN THE CYLINDER HEADS. It practically killed itself before time was due. Didn't know about this design flaw (based on a 3.2L Mitsubishi V6), and blew the cylinder head gaskets on the first day that it overheated. 

 

2006_pontiac_gto-pic-2519191278223336222

 

2006 Pontiac GTO. It was during the "revival" of the "muscle car era", back then you had a choice between a 250-275 horsepower Ford Mustang, a 350 horsepower Dodge Charger (actually a sedan, not muscle), and this, a 400 horsepower Pontiac GTO! Same LS1/LS2 motor as the one in the 400 horse Corvette. Comes with either a 6-six manual with a faux short shifter, or a 4-speed automatic. 

 

Has the muscle car era really came back? Not really, tightened emission standards are slowing its reintroduction. We have a new Camaro, Challenger, Mustang, but what happened to our Chrysler Valiant Imperial (Green Hornet & Kato's car). 

 

But then GM murdered the Pontiac badge during the recession.

It's sad to see Pontiac gone, wish that GM had kept it alive (maybe instead of Buick?) and improved it’s quality.

My grandpa bought the this 1991 Skoda Favorit 135L and we had it for about 4-5 months. We were gonna register it but the previous owner didn't want to pay the 100 euro tax. I really miss it.

(Actual photos).

I remember seeing this really cool VW Rabbot when I was about 5 I told parents that that would be my first car. When I was 15 I was able to get one it was no where near as nice but it was a ride.

I remember back in the primary school days that some girl of my grade used to come to school in one of these vans, a bit older, perhaps a different brand but that kind of body style.

Most notable one I can think of is my grandma's old Ford Ranger(89-92, don't know the specific year). I believe it was a single cab since I remember riding in the fold down middle seat all the time. It was silver with a really 70's-esque multicoloured stripe decal job all down the sides. It ended up being given to my uncle and he hit a deer with it. After that it sat in the pasture for about a year before it got hauled away to be scrapped. My mom's first car, a white Ford Tempo, also suffered the fate of hitting a deer.

 

Come to think of it a lot of vehicles belonging to my mom and grandparents' over the years got given to my uncle and destroyed in accidents when he was driving.

citroen-c15-occasion.jpg

 

^These were pretty plentiful at the time here in Israel.

 

A car that I remembered seeing quite commonly in my childhood is a car from the same company as this one,the Citroen model BX.

This car has an unforgettable and distinctive design,and was fairly common here at the time as I already stated...I believe that the car nowdays is nearly extinct from the roads of Israel as it is unreliable and requires further maintanence in order to keep it roadworthy.

Here are some photos of this car in Israel,registered with a license plate that I even myself did not know about : https://www.flickr.c...in/photostream/ .

 

Another car that comes up in my memory,is the late 80s-early 90s Ford Sierra,another car that was reasonably common here and nowdays very few remain roadworthy.

Yeah, I'm fairly young, so don't flame.

 

Although, my dad used to work at a pretty large company, so when his work vehicle was being serviced, he would borrow this. Amazing car. Fast. Stylish.
