What Was Your Ride Before Your First Generation S10?

Just Curiosity Killed The Cat, As This S10 Is My Second Car, Just Seeing What Everyone Had Before And What Happened To It?

Im Currently Driving My 1993 Suzuki Sidekick. My Mudder haha
Its Funny I Go From Wanting To Jack my Truck Up And Keeping It Dirty
To Lowering It And Keeping It Sparkling.

96 ford ranger got tboned then junked. junked for $500
88 toyota cressida sold when i left the country for what was supposed to be much longer job for $1k.

Re: What Was Your Ride Before Your First Generation S10?

I just thought about it & counted 41 different vehicles that I have owned that actually ran. More if you count the ones that I bought or traded for a parts vehicle. My first car was a 71 Chevrolet Bel Aire that had the police package. Still had spotlights on it & the rear doors would not open from the inside.

ahaha.. after picking up that bumper i was actually hoping to hit a deer with it just to see... but i think i'll try not to hit shit with this one.. can't afford to maintain it let along buy a new one! but if it comes down to it i think that bumper might be better than any insurance policy

Re: What Was Your Ride Before Your First Generation S10?

first car was a 89 camry 4 door AWD i4. didnt even drive it before trading it to my dad for a 88 camry 4 door FWD v6. drove that for almost a year, then totaled it off a cliff into a bridge, then landed it upside down in a creek (frozen)

after that, i drove my dad's 8? 4wd 2.8L longbox s10 for a week (learned how to drive stick on that) then i got my 92 ext cab 4.3L and have been loving it ever since!

Re: What Was Your Ride Before Your First Generation S10?

I've had way too many cars for only being 30...I guess I just get bored.
I got my first car when I was 17. It was a 1985 200SX Hatchback...great car. I would love to have that car back, but they're pretty hard to find. Then I aquired the 92 S-10 from my dad in 1996. I've had many cars since, but the S-10 has always been with me and never left me stranded..until a few weeks ago.

This was really yours?

I love e30s, I own 2. Where'd you get the bumper? Do you live in America? Where's the driver's front seat? Are you running spacers in the front, or is it an IX?
