Default What was your First car?

Mine was a 1955 Caddy, 4dr. sedan, bought it for $50.00. Everything worked, power windows, 97 way seat, lol (would adjust to any position except upside down) a good AM radio, A/C and a automatic headlight dimmer. It had been hit in the driver side rear door by a snow plow, a big gash and the door wouldn't open, other than that, she was cherry. It was black when I got it. My Dad worked for a loggin' company and he gave us some paint, Caterpillar Yellow. My best bud and I painted it on with brushes and left a black racin' stripe about a foot wide, right down the middle. I was just 14 and used it for a fishing car. Called it "The Boat". Where I lived, I had access to 3 lakes, several streems, and about 200 miles of dirt back roads. My bud and I would load up "The Boat" and head for our favorite fishing holes. Got a lot of strange looks from the tourists!!! LOL Now those were the days. (sigh....)

Mine was a 1961 Plymouth Valiant, bought in 1966 for $385 dollars, red, with a 170 cubic inch slant six (great motor) and a three speed on the floor, and that really tasteless "European" styling. But it had air, and an AM/FM radio. It would do 0-60 in about 17 seconds, and go an indicated 91 miles per hour if the wind was right. I didn't really like it (wanted a Corvair Turbo) but looking back it was a good car for a 17-year old kid. The Plymouth lasted three years and was replaced by my first new car, a 1968 327 V8 Camaro. That was a great car - one of the best I ever owned. I really wish I still had it.

My first was a 1993 Oldsmobile Achieva S. Aparently... The "S" Stood for "Sport" is what i was told. Even though it was a 4 door with a 2.3L DOHC and i would assume one of the farthest things from "Sport". I bought the car because it was only $1500 and i was going to be getting my license pretty soon. I had the money, and then i had the car and now i have come a long way from driving stoooopid 4 Cylinders lol.

Got a '74 Gran Torino from my mom when she passed away. God, that was like 134 cars ago, now... I've had a few real cherries, but mostly.. junk boxes.

Even had one car that I paid $75 for, and one of the connecting rods let go about 20 feet out the driveway.. I took my plates off and started walkin'....

My first was the family '72 4 door nova with a 250-6cyl. I got it when I was 11 after my parent's passed. The first car I bought was a 1970 scj torino with a special ordered NASCAR BOSS 429, Drag pac car with a toploader 4 speed and 430 detroit locker rear end. That car would flat run. beat everyone in my school. I was 17. It was stolen when I was 19. I miss that car. But now I have a 'VETTE. life is good again.

In my 12th grade year (1999) my mom got me a '81 Chevette for $500 (guess you could say that was my first "Vette," LOL)...it was a piece of junk but it got me to school and work so I was happy. That car lasted about 3 months before dying on the way to school one morning.
