1st car was an 87 Buick Skyhawk, my Dad bought it for about $500. I couldnt afford insurance when I first got my license but the parents let me take the car out in the very small town I live in just to "stay warm" in the winter. <<mistake
Of course I drove it all over the place, had a minor accident on some ice, then about a month later the heater core went and I overheated and consequently blew the engine trying to make it home. --live and learn.
