I feel ambivalent at how I somewhat skipped over the shitcar phase.

>bummed rides until I got license
>got an old cop car
>despite more rust than paint, pretty much everything worked
>except for the parking brake
>and the AC died a few months before I sold it
>bought a Matrix
>all is well

There was that time the body of the P71 rubbed against the wires going to the computer until it cut through a bunch of them. Lost all my lights went out (all of them) but the car still ran, managed to ninja my way to a bro that patched it all up properly for a case of beer.

What I mean by ambivalent is that both my cars weren't that great but they were both worth something in my eyes. They weren't like a tercel that's only holding on by the teeth of its skin, or a wobbly, fear-inducing dodge neon that won't start 9 times out of 10 and turns itself off when driving at random intervals or something. The crown vic always ran, always had no trouble passing people on the highway, always had that lovely low end torque. The matrix, despite being slower, is just practical and better on gas. They're both cars I liked, and still like, and I never felt like really abusing the shit out of them.

I really want to buy some fucking piece of shit just to beat on. Like a real 80s garbage mobile hyoundai excel to off-road in until it just goes "CRUNCH" and I have to get it towed to a scrap yard.

My first car was a 1995 Geo Tracker. At the time of it's death, the muffler was shot, I'd barely passed the California smog test, the oil leaked, I had to role down the driver side window to open the door, and I kept a gallon jug of water in the back to top off the leaky radiator. It was the quintessential "college experience" car (I learned of it's final fate. The charity we donated it to turned it over to Camp Pendleton where marines practiced extrication drills on it). From there, I went to a hand me down 2000 Ford Windstar which finally died at something like 225,000 miles when it shit its tranny (sold it to the friendly Mexican who owned the muffler shop across the street from where it died. He replaced the tranny for cheap and flipped it). I've talked about my escapades and expensive repair bills with my 1997 Cadillac Eldorado. Fucking Dexcool. Carmax got that one. The 2006 Ford Crown Victoria I currently drive may or may not be shit as I bought it with a scary number of miles on it. I don't think I've ever NOT owned a shitcar.

I remember a spoiled rotten kid in high school, back in 1985, who said his Dad was giving him an early '70s Dodge Charger Super Bee. And he did not think this was a big deal because it was 15 years old or so. Ingrate bastard! Son of a BITCH!

1971 Dodge Super Bee: the Last Bee
Originally appearing as a more advanced version of the super successful Road Runner, Super Bee used the same recipe – take a simple cheap model, install a V8 engine as powerful as possible, and that’s it. Coronet model has been taken as a basis. The recipe worked quite well until 1971, when Coronet lost two-door versions. Then, in the case has entered the body from the then-produced Charger. That’s why the 1971 Dodge Super Bee is unique – is in fact the last classic Super Bee and the last used concept of a simple, cheap, but powerful muscle car.

Despite the fact that the Super Bee was positioned as the affordable muscle car (the cheapest 1971 Super Bee cost $3,300), the engines were not weak, and in fact in no way inferior to the more expensive and advanced competitors and “relatives”.

Super Bee of the 1971 model year was the first and only model with the base engine small block V8, just 5.6 liters of displacement, however producing enough power – 275 HP. Then ordinary big-block V8 engines were avaialble: 383 cubic-inch (6.3L) producing 300 HP; two 440 Magnum (7.2-liter) engines, producing 370 or 385HP (due to different settings and fuel system).

Hemi engines, which widely used on another muscle cars made by Chrysler corporation, could be installed in Super Bee only optionally. Nevertheless, it was the most powerful modification, producing 425 HP, with 426 CID of displacement. http://carswithmuscles.com/1971-dodge-super-bee/
