one of the other threads about who was the youngest bonneville owner on the site got me thinking. for us (ahem ) oldtimers, what was your first car and do you remember what you paid for it? my first was a fire engine red 68 ford galaxie sedan that i paid $300 for in the summer of 80
Silver 1985 ford thunderbird with 45k miles on it and the 3.8 v-6. had it for 6 months before the head gaskets blew. I still have it, its covered with blankets in a warehouse, awaiting a v-8
1981 Cadillac Fleetwood d'Elligance, 169k miles, 368 v-8. 100$, lasted almost to 270k before the engine decided to eat its bearings. Sold it for 1200$ with a newer paint job and a knock. see it around ocassionally, the new owner re-built the engine and it runs like a champ to this day.
