My first car was a 93 ford probe it started out teal and during my senor year I got this great idea to put a body kit on it. at the time I had no idea how much work I just signed up for but luckily my dad used to work at a body shop so that was a lot of help. I owned the car for 7 years and sold it to a kid I grew up with because the tranny went out in my truck and I wasn't living where the car was at the time. he owned it for a couple of years and just beat the shit out of it.The car died on him one day and had a friend come help tow it, well they hooked it up under the front bumper (the frame) and the other end of the chain to the guys hitch. Obviously there was a height difference between the car and the truck so when the chain got taunt it ripped through the front bumper splitting it in half. I know that it was no longer my car but the work that I had put into to it and the good times that I had when I owned it still hurt seeing it in such state. I offered to buy it back in hopes of fixing it back up but instead he let it sit on the street till it got towed.
here's a picture of it the day it was out of the paint booth
In 08 I bought a GMC Jimmy full-size, I had been looking for a truck to go wheeling in and take my boats to the ramp. I still had the car at the time so it wasn't my daily driver. I was having a hard time finding something that was in my budget and not a POS. Then I rembered that my cousin had one and wasn't driving it for reasons I don't remember. I called him up and asked how much he wanted for it and he said he couldn't take less then $2200, I told him fuck you I'll give you $1200 he said he'd think about. The next day I went to the bank and went up to his place pulled out the cash and said $1200. he looked at me then the cash and said ok but give it to me after the weekend I'm going to the city and I know I'll spend it. since then I've replaced just about everything and moved more then a few times, its still a great truck.
this is when a first bought it
this is one of the first wheeling trips I went on
Line-X acts like a chalk board so I used some sidewalk chalk on it last summer.
this year was the first year since I owned it that I took the top off. and in a truck with poor A/C this was a godsend
