What was your first car and how old were you when you got it?
Twenty years old and it was a 1969 Camaro 427, bright yellow with black racing stripes and God I loved that car. Talk about power...it just growled at you when you passed it. LOL Four months after buying it I had it stolen from the parking lot at college. They completely stripped the car and everything in it and I was heartbroken.
My first car was a 1989 Nissan pickup that was bought used in 1992. Loved it, but had to let it go. I was 15 when my parents bought it for me.
It wasn't my first car (those were pre-owned), but it was my first brand-new car: a green (my favorite color) Maverick with the sporty-looking Grabber trim package. The year was 1970 (I think), which would make me 27 when I bought it. The Maverick lost its charm for me once I realized that stopping even slowly and carefully on wet pavement could make that car swerve badly. I learned the hard way that stopping suddenly on wet pavement could turn it completely around. Fortunately, this happened on a lightly-traveled road. Otherwise, I might not have gone beyond age 27!
My first car was a 59 Studebaker and I paid $75 for it. It burned so much oil I carried a case of it in my trunk. But it was all mine and I loved the freedom it gave me--but it was soooo ugly.
I got it after I graduated high school. I lived with my aunt and uncle and their rule was we could not own a car until we had graduated and could pay for the insurance.
I still had it when I got married when I was 19 but we ended up having it hauled to the dump! It was bad.
My first car was a 1990 Volkswagen Jetta Diesel. It was black, had a manual transmission and somewhere around 150,000 miles. I was 20 and I needed a car to get to work and back while in college. Being a college student paying for my own school bills, I naturally didn't have much money to spend; I paid $900 for it. I liked the car; it was fun to drive.
My first new car was a blue and white 65 Buick Special. It was a car like my boyfriend's who became my husband two years later. Therefore, it was a special car. It held up well, and how proud I was of my first brand new car. It wasn't sporty, just a plain old good car. I had my very first little wreck with that car on a snowy day near Rochester, New York. Good question
I bought my first car after I finished boot camp and Hospital Corps School. It was a 1985 maroon Ford Escort. It may not have been the coolest car on the road, but it got me where I wanted to go. I had it for 13 years and never had any problems with it. It ran through many trips from bases home, college campus and home, and it's final long voyage when I drove to Fallon, Nevada to spend a couple of months with my sis-in-law.
My first car was a used Dodge Aspen. I was eighteen when I bought it. Even now it is still one of my favorite cars, probably because of the memories associated with it.
My first car was a Triumph 2500 P! (UK) in 1978 it was a 1974 car with the number plate TOX1N, although it was only 4 yrs old it was rubbish, the floor had holes in it, the seats had rips in them and the paintwork was more rust than paint but it got me where I wanted to go, it would easily do 130mph but took about 130 miles to stop from that speed. It cost me about £300 I think and the funny thing is the registration number would be worth about £25000 now.
The car certainly had some history as after being sold it was used in a bank robbery and the police used it as an undercover car for some time after that.
Mine was Suzuki Alto and I was 20 when I first drove it. It was a great feeling, I personally like manual ones than the automatic versions.

What was your first car?Some people had the benefit of going big on the first car. Others go more modest. Which way did you go? Would you recommend it?
