My FB is my Eleanor

Does anyone else think of their 1st gens the way I do?
It's older, more tasteful. Itís smaller than other cars, and very beautiful. Amongst other newer flashier cars it just comes across as such a classic.

Reminds me of a simpler time...

For a atainable car, yes the 1st gen RX-7 is the car for me, but for all the marbels a 60's ferrari would have to be it. Until that day comes im satisfied with my rotary rocket.

The RX-7 has a mystic about it. I really dig that. And as Fennix_sr said, they're "unique".

Bitch, Slut, Whore!! Those are my names for my 1st gen. One hell of a ride, but demands high maintance, but in reality is doesn't break down that much, just is a gas guzzler as for costs.

BTW, this car DOES NOT help me pick up women. But for some odd reason, women seem to dig the '88 SE over the 1st gen? It is really weird to me, I think a 1st gen is much more sexy looking car?

I've got a copy of the Original Gone In 60 Seconds, I found it on dvd at Best Buy, and I've seen that Wal-mart now carries it too.

My car's name varies from time to time...

it's been all of the following:

Baby
B!tch
Stupid F*cking Piece of ****
F*cker

and normally they're used in sentences like this:

"Come on Baby.... be nice to Daddy"
"Come on b!tch! Start!:
"Stupid F*cking Piece of ****, WHY WON'T YOU START???!!!"
"Fine you little F*cker, you can sit in the driveway all summer while I drive that Prelude over there..."

Normally all within a day...

Jeff

"When I was a kid, I thought my name was Jesus Christ. My mom was always saying things like 'Jesus Christ will you sit down!' 'Jesus Christ what is wrong with you?' My brother thought his name was Dammit. 'Dammit, why can't you keep your room clean?'

One day I misbehaved and my Dad said 'Dammit what's wrong with you?' to which I replied 'But Dad, I'm Jesus Christ'"...

(My car's name is Pamela, BTW)
