Man, you older cats had some fun first rides! Mine was a 72 f100-302/c4 sport custom bought for $300 and had been sitting in the garage for about 11 years when I got it in 1996. Blew a brake line a a trans cooler line within a mile of leaving with it and had to come back for it the next day. Had a "special" recipe to start it: keep starting fluid, hammer and screwdriver under hood- turn on key, open hood, smack starter with hammer, spray starting fluid in carb and cover with hand, jump solenoid with screwdriver, rev it up and slam hood and run around into cab before it does! about $50 fixed it- new starter, choke tube repair and rebuild carb. Anothe 100 for 4 new wheel cylinders and all new lines and trans cooler line. Put on some glasspacks and fat bfg tires and chrome wheels and enjoy the 8mpg while gas was $.99/gallon. Had to go to a mini truck when gas got over $1.25!

When I was 16 and a junior in high school, I inherited a 1952 black Desoto. It was like a tank and had a semi-automatic transmission that you worked using the gas pedal. Loved the gas wars back then (1963); instead of gas costing about 25 - 30 cents a gallon, you could find it for about 19 cents. The 'good ol' days' when we never had to lock our doors or carry a gun.

My first was a 1974 Pontiac LeMans that I paid $350 for!! It was no GTO but it ran almost as fast with a 350 small block, a few minor tweaks, and glass pack exhaust. I can remember sneaking out at night and having to push the car down the street before starting it in order to not wake up my parents.

an Austin A40 a few years later. I think some of the older Canadians might remember these. Both good fun for a young lad, even if you did have to hold them in second gear when accelerating hard!!!

69 Mustang. Picked this up in 1996 for a couple of grand. My dad was so mad at me. He hated it and made me get rid of it. I'm still not quite over that one. It was also the only non-Chevy I've ever owned.

Then ended up with the Monte Carlo SS
