I bought my first car when I was 16 and it was a 1973 Pontiac Ventura. It was a great car! It had a tape deck in it (yeah, yeah- I'm showing my age ) None of my other friends had cars and their parents cars didn't have tape decks so I was the totally cool kid

White 1959 Chevy Impala, 348 V8 - totalled when a woman ran a stop sign. The white curse goes way back!

Dark blue '89 F*rd Probe LX(No shame, it'* actually a rebadged Mazda)
2.2L Mazda motor with a 5spd, dedcently quick, apparently to quick for my stupid, 17yr-old butt. Flipped it at 85MPH on a back road. Saved my life, but completely destroyed. Even the engine block was busted by the initial impact with the embankment.

First technically-on-my-own car was a 90 Taurus that my Great Aunt Virginia gifted to me when she stopped driving. I say that it was "technically" on my own because I payed for
all three replacement transmissions on my own
It'* also the reason I will never again own a F*rd.
My Brother is absolutely certain he found it in a junkyard a few months ago. He gave me the grille badge. Next NEBF, I'm torching it.

My first vehicle that I could drive: '55 McCormick Farmall Cub. Electric starter was shot, so I had to first learn how to hand crank it without breaking my arm. Still have it, though it'* back home in Pennsylvania. Not much to look at, definately not a babemobile, but it got me to town and it beat walking. Now I get a laugh out of people who ride ATV'* for fun. I had one before it was fashionable.

First "Real" car: 1966 Chevy Malibu 4-door. Navy Blue, Straight 6, 3 on the tree. Would dearly love to have another one. (Have only ever seen one other '66 4 door Malibu. Happens to be here in Daytona, but the owner isn't interested in selling it.) Car belonged to my Grandmother, who never had a driver'* license in her life. First time I got to drive it I was 13 and was sent on a mission to go fetch Grandpap from the local tavern. Car finally rusted out so bad it wouldn't pass PA inspection (even with $20, a wink, and a nod to the local garage)

First car I paid for. 1984 Pontiac Fiero 2m4.

My first was a 1987 Toyota Starlet GL, 1.0 litre 12-valve, 5-speed manual, 3-door hatchback:



What can I say? Slow, didn't handle or ride well, and shocking brakes that would lock up the wheels if braking with any urgency.... But it was spacious for its size (I'm 6' 3" and was comfortable behind the wheel), it was well appointed for an 80s small car, it was well made, and reliable. Got 40mpg in my hands - not bad but not great for its size.

1984 jeep CJ7, it was fun in the summer time when i could put the top down and take the doors off. winter time, the doors really didn't matter since they didn't meet up with the door frame. i would leave it in the school parking lot and come back out after school and have to brush snow off of the seat. had no heat, no radio. i wish i would have kept it for a summer ride.

1967 Camaro, 302, 4bbl Holley, Muncie 4 speed, Rally Sport package, front disc brakes. Why did I ever sell that car (to buy a new Jeep CJ7 in 1983)? Somebody please kick me in the groin. Someday I'll post pichers.
