lol nice plate, bro.
We all know that "cool" is relative. I know that some of us didn't have our own cars until just recently, so "old" is relative too.
Dig in your hard drive or look in the attic to scan something to share.
I'm looking for those photos of you standing next to your ride. Photos that (at the time) you thought were the coolest. They have to be yours. Think of this as our own CarDomain thread. Include a date.
Extra points for:
-Standing proud in front of a POS.
-Black and white photos.
-The older the better.
I'll start - feel free to caption mine and others.
Year - 1989
Car - 1984 Colt Turbo
I like to call this pair: "Shock and Awe"

I've gotta see if I can find some old film pictures of my first car. Digging up a video still from my high school's "tv club" feature on students' cars proved unsuccessful. I've gotta see what I can do about that, it was hilarious. I was a little dumber then.
In the meantime, my shenanigans circa 2004-5...sorry, I wasn't cool enough to pose with a car:

1990?/91? Subaru Justy beater:
My 96 VW Golf Turbo Diesel (no shot of me with the car but still embarassing):
The hood was black because a buddy bought a Carbon Fibre hood and gave me his black one. My white hood had a hideous bra on it covering up the rust on the edge of it. Never ended up painting it because the car was a money pit. I sold it. The headlights I thought were cool at the time and it's about the closest i've been to being a "dubber". Never again.
Lettin' my hillbilly out. Still have this 80 CJ-5:
And this one is not that old but still the coolest of cool. Circa summer 2009 in my Datsun Z:
Well done...in for later
Mazda, Porsche, Volkswagen.

Ahh, yes. Memories of being fresh out of high school and thinking I was the king of the world. Well, maybe not--I didn't even have a car of my own yet... so I had to secretly flog my mother's 1986 Escort Pony 4-speed commuter within an inch of its life. I did this on a regular basis, and the darn thing took it all in stride.
So here I am, the day after Thanksgiving 1988:
(No, this isn't a 'pose' photograph per se. Still, it's what I got.)
