My first car was a 1980 Toyota pickup.

By the time I was driving age, American cars were total pieces of garbage and not desirable at all.

Ah, Ratt and Dokken. And Crue. And Scorpions. Good time to be young!

When I was feeling really badass, I'd bust out Priest or Maiden or Accept. I played Restless & Wild for a buddy and he said, "That would take out a woodchuck at a hundred yards."

F***in' hated Winger and Whitesnake and Poison, though. Pouty poodles. Way too ghey. Same for Def Leppard, although their first two albums kicked. I challenge you to play Let It Go in the car and not want to go 100 miles per hour. When they wrote that song they said, "That bridge kicks ass. What should we put after it? How about another, even ass-kickinger bridge?"

Wasn't quite the same when the future Mrs. Schizuki hopped a median and busted the Firebird's oil pan. Got a '78 Pinto after that. Crap car that broke down every month, but I could usually fix it myself for about twenty bucks. I look in the engine bay of my Scion tC today and I can understand why kids are into video games instead.

Ah yes, I had a '75 Pinto Pony MPG sedan that had a few options that drove guys in 924 Porche's nuts:

The 2.3 liter Ford motor carried five main bearings, and the crankshaft weighed 75 lbs.

#1: Holy 390 Four BBL
#2: Isky 3/4 cam with .50 lift & 280 degree duration
#3: Wiesco graphite coated pistons at 10.5.1
#4: Clifford headers running into a giant Monte Carlo muffler.
#5: C4 ford trans with shift kit and a 2800 rpm stall.
#6: Remote dual oil filters & oil cooler. Bergman oil thermostat.
#7: CDI autolite distributor. 10 degrees advance.

Kept it looking stock as a rock, use to kick ass on so-called sports cars of the early eighties. Even a 305 Vette now and then....

One of my HS buddies got a brand new Pinto for his graduation gift. It was great right up to 12k miles. Then the dash cracked, the handles broke, the uphostry split.

At least it didn't explode!

Coverdale is an ass. Who remembers the NYC band RIOT? Rhett Forrester was the lead singer. Rhett tragically died in a drug deal where the shooter literally opened fire after the transaction was complete. Rhett's addition aside, he told me about the shifty antics that Coverdale and Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) played to beat Rhett out of the lead singer spot for Whitesnake. Coverdale made it a habit to try to piss off competing bands during the 80s. I wouldn't piss on Coverdale if he were on fire. He's only a moderately decent singer at best.
OK- I'll quit the rant.
Carry on.

BTW- I have met most of these guys because I was a live audio engineer in the late 80s through late 90s. Just another fact you have learned about me. Oh, and Rhett's brother Lucky is one of my best friends to this very day.

Oh, I wont deny he's an ass and his voice is totally gone (saw them last year), I've just been listening to them since the 70's and enjoy some of the older bluesier stuff.
