    What was your first car?

    Mine was a 77'Grand Prix.  It was a boat and I LOVED IT.

    My first car was a 1978 Datsun (Nissan now) 280z. Candy apple read. I loved it.

    My first car was a second-hand 1958 VW Beetle.   It was my pride and joy.  Before that I'd owned motor cycles of varying power 500cc 650 cc and 700cc - these you might call 'the poor man's sports car.'   However, once married and settled down, the bikes went and the cars began.

      Now that I'm reaching 50 years old, I'm wanting a bike again!

    My first car was a  1978 Pontiac Phoenix, silver gray with burgundy vinyl interior (mint inside!) also a burgundy landau roof. The trunk had a huge patch of oxidized paint on it, and the rest of the body had only a little bit of rust. Overall, it was a really nice car. And that baby flew! All I had to do was tap the gas pedal and I was doing 75 in seconds flat! As you can imagine, as a new driver, that did cause a bit of a problem with local law enforcement, but I learned quickly and never did get an actual ticket for speeding--only warnings!

    My first car was a 1968 Pontiac Tempest.  As a teenager I spent all of my money and time fixing it up and as soon as it was finished I totaled it out on my way to get flowers for my girlfriend.

    Soon after that I purchased a 1961 mercury parklane in nearly perfect condition with less than 50,000 miles for only $250.  The trunk alone was so huge that you had to climb in to get to the back.  Sure wish I still had that car.  Oh yes, in case your wondering, no, I didn't crash that one.

    I had a 1974 mustang.  By the time I got it, it was an older car that I got from a dealer.  It was an automatic, and especially appealing because I graduated high school in 1974.
