Bone stock rusted out 97 XJ 4x4, 4 door, 4.0 I6 with an AW4 with 213,000 miles. I payed half since I didn't have a job then, and payed my dad back later. 3 years later I'm 16 and it now has 224,000 miles and this is what it looks like currently.

1977 MGB - British Racing Green with tan interior and black top. Fun to drive. Spent more time fixing it than I did driving it.

94 Jeep Cherokee Sport. 4.0 and manual. I blew a stop light and hit a work van. Totally my fault. I think the body shop it was hauled to that gave us some money for it fixed it and it's still running around Alabama somewhere.

In 1975 I was 16 and got a 1965 Pontiac Catalina 389 complete with rod knock. Drove it anyways until one day we decided to finish it off. My buddy backed it into a couple trees, drove it over a speed bump and caught air in front of the entrance of the old folks home, (much to the amusement of several residents smoking outside) then threw it into reverse @ 50 mph on the tnpk. That did it.
