1985 pontiac trans am- it was an automatic but fun none the less. probably not a good first car for a new driver
1990 acura legend L- loved it... it had all the luxury and power that i needed at the time, and was very reliable. i drove that until i moved to VT and the heater and AC died.
99' toyota rav 4- hand-me-down from my mom when she got a new vehicle. it lasted for almost 230,000 miles before it was taken out of commission in an accident, which prompted me to start car shopping. i ended up going to the LGT.
