Re: Ok, what was your first car?
Well, My first was a 1956 McCormick Cub. Which I was allowed to drive on dirt roads near the farm. Three cylinders, four speed manual, PTO, sidebar cutter. Headlights didn't work, so I had to be back in the shed before dark. Starter didn't work either, so I had to hand-crank it. Would at least get me close enough to town that I could walk the rest of the way.
First real road car: 1966 Chevy Malibu. 4 doors, straight 6. Car was rusted out and wouldn't go over 50. When if failed the PA inspection (even the veeeery liberal standards of our local mechanic in Fayette City) it got sent to the scrap yard.
Following that, a 1984 Pontiac Fiero 2m4. Fun car, mechanical nightmare that blew 3 motors, even after the series of recalls. Traded in on a used '87 Camaro V6 in 1994.
Wife'* first car: 82 Dodge Aries K. 4 doors, custard yellow. All it needed was the "Government Service" stickers in the back glass. When it bled out on Volusia Ave it got towed to the local Dodge dealer and a new Dakota pickup came home in it'* place.
Couple of years later, the Dakota got traded in on the '94 Camaro. Dealer took the truck with a load of roofing shingles in the bed. Even loaned it back to me a week later to haul more shingles to the dump before finally turning it in.
That brings me to the current roster, except for a 1987 Fiero GT. I picked that one up in very rough shape with the intention of racing it in SCCA'* ITA class. Got the roll cage in, started working on the blown motor. Came to the conclusion that I didn't have the money to race SCCA (lot more expensive than the AMA CCS motorcycle racing I had been used to) so I gave it to a friend who needed Fiero parts.
