I am just barely 53 YO... My first was a 1960 F100 223cid 6cyl. Only options were one sun visor and a heater... I mean literally. No radio, no signals, vacuum wipers and plenty of rust and dents. Bent on all 4 corners, bad rear axle, bad brakes, broken rear spring, and strpped 2nd gear(side loads of this era famous for), broken front and rear glass. Mom owed a little money and I traded that for this "truck" that my father had abandoned... Gotta learn somewhere.

1954 Austin Healey 100-4. Bought wrecked, "fixed" (rather than repaired). Really fun car. Ran rallies, gymkhanas, and an ice trial with the local sports car club (in western NY state) with my father on my "learner's permit"! My father's version of appropriate driving school. Fixing and repairing daily added to the learning experience. Loved that car!

My first car was a 1963 Ford Fairlane Sport Coup with a 260 c.i. engine. My first new car once I was commissioned was a 1973 mach 1 with a boss 351 c. i. engine. It could pass anything on the road, but a gas station.

Only one older so far. My first was a 47 Hudson, paid $50 for it but never could get it running. The first one I drove was a 48 Chevrolet fastback ($75). Dad, my brothers, and I somehow kept it running until I threw a rod. Did someone say you are supposed to check the oil?
