View Full Version : New Driver!

I just got my license a month ago, I'm 18, in New York City. I aquired a '86 LX-i Auto as my first car. Got it from one of my friends, it was just sitting in a parking lot for a year. Although the title says so, I'm not really a new driver :) I have been driving my friends' cars unlicensed for a while...
Anyway, my car is pretty okay. Cosmetically the hood is dented, the muffler is rusted, and the seats are a bit dirty. This car looked like a joke when it was sitting in the lot. But I did a little clean up and it looks like it has potential, especially after I saw some of the rides on this forum. I've been looking around while waiting for my account to activate. Other things that I have to fix are the headlights, they don't move. The speedometer doesn't work, but the tach does. The sound system sucks right now. I want to make this car look fresh on the streets.

Welcome newbie (from a fellow newbie)! It's always good to see people who want to take pride in a neglected classic. :D
