My first car was a 1958 Dodge Royal. It was my Fathers car and it was boss as a horse and we used to say in those days.

It had a push button transmission with 300 HP. I used to take air cleaner off and it would sound mean. Also I would drive in second gear and everybody thought I had a stick shift. lol. Had alot of fun with that car.

Aah, memories! My first car was a 'gently used' 1959 Pontiac 'Parisienne' - a dusty pink 'boat' with matching brocade upholstery, 3 ashtrays in front dash, tons of leg room and a lovely big engine. Yup, I could even parallel park it!

Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

My first car was a 1993 Buick Skylark, that got totalled in May. I had it for almost a year. It was for the best. It had an engine light on all the time and it wouldn't have passed inspection anyway. Not without a lot more money into repairs.. again. LOL

My first vehicle wasn't a car or truck. But it has defined my choices in vehicles. I was the proud owner of a brand new, off the showroom floor, 1971 Yamaha R5 350. Do you have any idea how many burgers I flipped and newspapers I delivered to buy that thing. :thumbsup:

Mine was a White over tan Pontiac Ventura 2dr It looked like the car in the link, but without the mags. Best part was the sound system - the cause of my hearing lose. Every time I go huh?, I blame the car :thumbsup:

1996 Dodge Intrepid. My dad gave it to me a week ago when I got my license. I took it to the shop today and it's not looking good :flowers: . To pass NY state inspection in December, they said it will need about $1,500 worth of work. Right now though, they are only fixing the brakes, and fixing a leak that was filling my car with the sweet aroma of gasoline. They told me it wouldn't be worth fixing, but I have faith :thumbsup:.

The guy told me the car is only worth around $300 (I know he was exaggerating though), and its just not worth fixing. My theory is what's the sense of buying another car for 2 or 3 grand because It's going to need work anyway. Also, I know what's wrong with this one, another might have some serious problems.

And that was before that new-fangled power steering

I was more of a bike nut also 1967 Puch and my grandma's 1946 Indian. Still got the Indian
Also had a Whizzer motorized bike when I was 13

Ooooh! A car topic! Nice!

Since I got my license late in my life, I still have my first car... actually I have 2 first cars lol! But theoretically, my first one was the one I learned driving with. 1993 Pontiac Grand Am SE V6. Great little car, sporty and very nimble. It means business. On one of my first "on the road" drives with it, I burned rubber at a stop light because I hit the accelerator a little too much... surprised the heck out of me. :flowers: :thumbsup:

Then me and my husband bought another car. This one's a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP, Supercharged. That thing rocks! I :trumpet: my car!

It was a fixer-upper that I never was able to finish fixing up.

The first one I owned and actually drove was a 1963 Chevy Impala.

My first car was a red '89 Chevrolet Beretta GTU. It wasn't the fastest car, but it handled like a dream. It looked something like this:
