My first car was a 1964 Ford Falcon Sprint. I drove it like I hated it.... Lasted a couple months. In my first year driving, I went thru it, a 1957 Chevy Belair, and a 1964 Pontiac Catalina Sport Coupe. In 37 years I havent slowed down, But I've learned to look further ahead.

1974 Chevy Vega Kamback in maroon, you know, the sorta small station wagon looking car with two doors and a hatchback. I always dreamed about dropping a 327 in it as a sleeper, but wrapped it around a telephone pole before that could happen.

Replaced it with a '69 Camaro, also in maroon, that I picked up for $1000. Boy, oh boy, do I wish I had held onto that one!

1974 dark green, flat finish, 4 door, Ford Maverick. It was so rusty that I could reach into the door panel from the outside to unlock it.
I paid $50.00 for it because it didn't run for the owner. It needed a tire and battery for it to run.
I sold it two years later for $200.00

I created a powerpoint of all the cars I have owned, but unfortunately, that'* the only one that I had no pics of.

Travis! We have an identical 79. The only thing different about it is the rims.

The first car I drove was my mom'* 1985 Olds Cutlass Ciera. My first car I got the summer before my senior year was a Silver 1981 Mercury Zephyr. For those that don't know the Zephyr, it is the sister to the Ford Fairmont. It was a totally blah car, but at least it had a V6. It was also a local drivers ed car at one time. We fixed some rust that started under the mid moulding, and to add some character we painted it Navy blue on the bottom.
