First car was a 1987 suzuki samurai, I was fourteen and wanted a fourwheeler but could not afford one. I had been reading fourwheeler magazine for some time and had read about glenn wakefields sammi in top truck. I saw one on the bus ride home with a lift and some 33's and a hideous camo paint job. Guy wanted 2000 but needed bail money for his brother I offered him 1200, he took it mom drove me to the bank I got out 1200 cash and it was mine. It was the middle of spring and slush was all over the place I drove it home with my mom following me and it was the sloppiest ride I can remember. Those big wide tires with the gumbo like spring slush, I turned that thing around 5 times on the trip home.
I still have it, it has 81,000 origional miles, I've only driven it 600 or so miles since i bought it. High school got busy and college kept me away. Its sat on blocks under a tarp for the last five years, It gets started every 6months.
Lifes slowing down a little and this spring its getting and exo cage and will be on a boad headed for kodiak this spring. I figure it will be a good grocery runner for all those little towns out west since it will fit on the deck nicely.
Sounds like some of you guys have some real zingers of first cars, mine has never made it over 65 on its own power.
