    My first car (i currently own it) was a 93 Ford Probe GT. So far theres a new intake and exhuast on it, soon a 13lb flywheel and perf clutch, all suspension stuff, short throw, test pipe, fuel pump, and a 65 nitrous in the summer. Great car, beats all the imports. I'm shooting for 13's for the summer. Not bad for a Probe or a car happy highschooler.

    The corvette Z06 was introduced in 2001, it had 385 hp, then in 2002 they upped it to 405 hp. There was never a Z06 in 98 or 97, just a regular 350 hp version.

    Thank you- that's right, and I don't know why no one said that before, like a few pages back when the idiot first said they came out in 98.

    Thank you- that's right, and I don't know why no one said that before, like a few pages back when the idiot first said they came out in 98. Oh, and it was REintroduced- the first one was introduced in 1968, I think, sometime in the late 60s.

    I got news for your "beats all the imports" line. First of all, no it doesn't. No. Second, it is an import. See, Ford gave a chunkful of money to a little company called Mazda, on this island I like to call Japan, and got them to build them a car so they could put their blue oval on it. And third, I like the Probe, too, but I don't think I'll buy one; they look too outdated, and not classicly outdated.

    Ok, I got a story about my first car for you guys. A few years ago, my cousin got a car for free from his friend, a 1983 Honda Accord, rusted away and smelled worse than a junkyard. So he gave it to me, said I could have it if I wanted it. I said ok. The steering wheel barely turned- lol, and had half a muffler. So I put some gas in it, drove it home, walked around with a smile on my face because I got a car, then five hours later, came to my senses and realized that it belonged in the trash, and drove it back where it came from. My cousin told me that he'd given it to another friend, who fell asleep and wrecked it on the LIE- no big loss. So that was my car. I have to wait till May 02 to get my real car, though. We can't have cars the first year in college here- what a shame. I'm thinking of getting an SVT Contour, what do you guys think?

Oh, and I did do one mod to it- I taped a shish-kabob stick to the turn signal so that it wouldn't keep fallin off. So that was my car. I have to wait till May 02 to get my real car, though. We can't have cars the first year in college here- what a shame. I'm thinking of getting an SVT Contour, what do you guys think?

    they didnt make the Z06 in 98 they started in 2000 or 2001 so if your going to give us bull shit be smart about it and how can you say the world fastest production can suckes just becuse you dont like a car doesnt mean it sucks.
     
  9. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    I don't have a car yet, but there are some rich bastards at my school who get whatever they want for their 16th birthday, and i feel sorry for them because when they actualy have to work for money later in life, they will just go crying back to mommy and daddy like the spoiled brats they are.
    at my school:
    -BMW Z8
    -Mistubishi 3000GT
    -Audi ( I think its an A6)
    -Lots of Jags (mostly XJ6 and one XKR)
    -BMW 330 (the kid crashed his X5 after he took it offroad, on a football field, so they bought him a new car)
    -Several Lincoln Navigators
    -Several Cadillac Escalades
    -Mercedes AMG CLK32
    -A senior last year received a Mercedes SL, after he decided he didn't want the diablo his parents were going to buy
    -Dozens of new Mustang GT's

    The only people on the list that bought their own cars were some of the mustang owners, and they bought early 90's models. Anyway, just wanted to offer some input.

    1st car.
    1986 4.2L I6 Jaguar Vanden Plas with 205hp.
    heads got updated.
    catylitic converter, and exhaust upgraded
    making it up 225.
    at that time, the 2.6 ton car did 0-60 in under 8 seconds.
    manifold, distrubotors, plugs, cables, battery all got upgraded.
    the tranny got redone and upgraded.
    the engine did get lifted, parted out, and rebuilt with "updated" jaguar parts. some gm corvette parts were used as well.
    accerlation improved to about 6.8 seconds
    as a project, the car was hooked up to turbo kit, and nitro (later removed) to check out its stats.
    at that state, the car had 450hp and had a whooping 0-60 time in 5.7 seconds.
    the top speed of the car was about 151 mph.
    it past the top speed on the speedodometer.
    fastest speedon radar was 126mph.
    the car had an impressive high end accerleration.
    without the turbo/nitro kit the car went 0-100 in 11 seconds.
    quater mile on a track was about 15.3 seconds.
    with the kit, 0-100 was 8 seconds, and the quarter was about 13.

    my current car sable 3.0 24v platinum is currently being worked on
    and i'm currently looking for a jaguar xjr-s 6.0 to fix up.
    the car can pull off over 1,000 hp.

    No such thing as a 1998 Z06 you dumb f*ck and then buying a 15 year old porsche would be the biggest POS and you probably haven't ever owned a car because your 10 year old and that statement about vettes suck that's extremely ignorant!!!!!!
     
  13. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    Nice choice of cars!
     
  14. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    Well my first car was, and still is, a 1993 Buick Skylark GS. Not really a supercar, but it ran, pretty good might I add. It has a 3.3L V6 Engine producing 165 horsepower and 185 lbs/feet of torque. Like I said not really a supercar. It was fairly light, weight at 2779 Lbs, the only mods I did were a new fuel injector, because the old was clogged and busted, and some new brake calipers. After I got the new fuel injector it probably gave me 5-7 extra horsepower, at least that's what the mechanic said. It's a good first car, although not as good as some of the cars I'm reading in this forum. Too bad they don't make them anymore because those cars are sweet.
     
  15. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    Considering the Z06 only came out in 2001, you're an idiot!

    who agrees tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many mustangsssss
     
  18. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    1990 Honda Civic SI

    Only mods are a high flow Dynomax Performance exhaust (no, not one of those "coffee can exahusts"), though the muffler has quite a few dents in it, I may have to get a new muffler soon, likely a straight through muffler. And the necessary mods to rally race regionally (mudflaps all-round, skidplates front and rear, roll cage, 4 point harnesses, and a fire extinguishing system).



    P.S. - somebody deleted my earlier post <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  19. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    '95 mustang gt... pretty sweet...no pics, though
     
  21. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    First car was a 1986 honda CRX 5speed and it got me used to driving a 5 speed. And now I own a 91 mustang5.0 GT. It has a 306 in it. With an Trickflow track heat intake and heads. And a trickflow camshaft and trickflow rollor rockers and 75mm throttle boddie.Also with a cold air induction kit with a K&N airfilter on it.With jacobs igition. That all is good for alittle over 400 Hp.
     
  22. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    Ok, change that POS "aluminized steel" Dynomax muffler to a straight through stainless steel magnaflow deltaflow muffler, along with the rest of the exhaust system to go with it. Also add a good Monroe offroad suspension system to that.

    In the future - F20C engine, AWD drivetrain with racing transmission, perhaps Turbocharged along with Nitrous kit (for those long straight stretches on the dirt roads when you need the fastest stage time possible).
     
  23. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    My first ride was a 1969 Pontiac Firebird RA IV 400 with an M-22 Rock Crusher tranny and 4.11's. Impossible to drive in the rain and really hard to hook up with those Zeta radials. I'd love to have had the Eagle F1's off of my Cobra back then, just to see what the bird would do with real tires. The car didn't need mods as it had the RAM AIR IV manifold with those coke bottle intakes. Funny thing is, I bought the car for $ 800.00 when it was 4 yrs. old, go figure?
     
  24. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    ummm....a mustang, cuz ur name is V8Stangman and ur avatar is a cobra R, and if it was thats a really nice choice
     
  25. Re: Everyone: post your 1st car and any mods

    I doubt that was it, the CobraR wasn't around in 1982.
