    I had bought a rust free duster(71) out in South Dakota thru a freind who was headed out to pick up a couple of cars he bought from this salvage yard. Paid $150 for it and was sent the title for it, freind was gonna hual it bback with the ones he bought.
    Had big plans on what I was gonna do to it, till my freind called me when he was there. All 5 cars, (mine and his 4) were there, but crushed 2 hrs b4 he got there with his transport truck. Was told, the owner just hired a new frontend loader operater and misunderstood his directions.
    Yes got money back, but have rather had the car. GRRRRRRR

    My very first brand-new car, a 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88. The damned thing didn't make it home from the dealership before the power steering went out. It went down hill from there! I had the thing for 30,000 miles, and racked up 42 work orders. G.M. was less than helpful. Now, I drive Fords. After all, I promised the president of G.M. that I would never buy another one of his vehicles, and so far have kept my word.

    Probably for me, it was the 2nd vehicle i ever bought. It was a 1990 F150 4x4, w/a 2" lift and 33's on it. I thought it looked badass, sounded just as bad, and looked past the rust and rough idle and bought it..... what a bad idea. It barely idled, ran rich as rich could be, getting 5mpg w/ 4.11's and an AOD trans, and the floor was so rusted I could look through it. Of course my mind said I could fix it and get it running right, but after lookin at how the previous owner had mickey-moused it together, and lettin it just sit for a year and a half, i sold it. *Whew* then I bought a 2000 S10, much more reliable since it hadn't been messed with. biggrin image

    my story is about my first car a 1971 Ford Torino, my dad was a devoted Ford Man his best friend was a car salesman at the local ford dealer so my first car had to be a Ford, Well it turned out to be a piece of junk. My first drive on my own i pulled out of the driveway put it to the floor and seen nothing but smoke, but not of the tires as i had hoped, but from the engine, i was a friday night so i kept going put 3 of my buddies in the car and proceeded to town 50 miles away, in route went over a railway crossing and tore of the exhaust, the only thing in my car was my guitar so pulled of a string and tied it up and kept going, the rest of the night went without incident , on saturday i decide to do some minor adjustments on the hood and front fenders, as they were badly out of adjustment, i was an apprentice bodyman at the time, so shouldn't have been a problem, WRONG nothing would work. i later done some research, only to find out that car had been written of and repaired more than once, i proceeded to try and trade the car in went to 3 dealers, could only get less than half of what i paid for it on a trade in, finally got a better deal traded it for a 73 Mazda RX3 loved it. but that is another story
