I was born in '76 and my dad was a proud owner of the FIAT 125p that looked like this

Up until 1989 in Poland gas was regulated by government. With engine displacement above 900cc the owner was able to purchase 36 up to 48 liters a month!

My first car was '73 Super Beetle back in 1994. Than a series of small 1400-2000 four cylinder Renaults, VW's and one inline 6, 5 Series BMW

Yes I do come from a different world

I was looking through an old album the other day and saw a car my stepfather bought. It was a Torino wagon? Big ole gold Ford wagon would get up and boogy.

I had a 70's Imperial 4 door, it was huge. Broke down and it was so long, especially past the rear wheels, that the tow truck could only lift the front wheels barely off the ground before the rear would scrape!

Not that I have ever done anything like that

OK, can't resist jumping in here.... Mine was a purple Gremlin X with a 5L V8 and I was also known to smoke a few tires through my high school parking lot. The thing sounded like a monster and was quite a sleeper. Saw quite a few unsuspecting firebirds and cameros in my rear view mirror...

You must mean when you passed a Firebird or Camaro, parked in a parking lot, right???

And apologies to my fellow Inmates for continuing the "banter" and not posting a good "Find" for you all --- Sorry, but I just couldn't resist

A guy in my hometown when I was in high school had one with an extended front end and a 426 hemi in it, if you can imagine.
