Your first vehicle that you owned!

This is a photo of my first vehicle that I bought for $70. It was a Ford Prefect 1952 and I was 16 years old. The car was in bad condition with the second gear not staying engaged. The car had mechanical brakes. I had a lot of fun with this first car.

I don't have a picture of it but my first car was a 1977 Dodge Aspen, two door with a 318 V-8. I too had lots of fun with that car even though it was not the normal hot rod. All that mattered to me was that I had a V-8 and I could roost the back tires. Nothing quite like the smell of burnt rubber .

1972 Toyota Celica ST, I bought from my sister in 74. I loved that car and if I could find a decent body of one today I would have it in a heartbeat. I spent a ton of mony on it and it looked sweet in 69 Corvette medium metallic blue with slotted American Mag wheels Stebro exhaust etc.

I bought a new 1976 Chevy Vega, no AC, but had an 8-track player and it cost $6.50 to fill it up from empty. That car is how I met my wife. My friends and I were at a Pizza Hut with those brownish color lights they had back in the 70's and she was leaving and owned a Vega also. She was trying to get into my car and that's how we met. May 22nd will be 35 years ago we met and June 23rd marks our 33rd Wedding Anniversary.

My first car was a 1951 Nash Rambler convertible purchased in 1956 for $75 with a bad front suspension when I was 16. My father and I pulled the two A frames together and put a tube support between them and I drove it for 2 yrs with no problems. Took my wife on our first date in it 56 yrs ago. I still have the motor/gearbox mechanism that ran the top up & down on rails. A 57:1 worm & screw.

My first car was a 1957 Ford Fairlane convertable w the 312 police interceptor engine. Only problem as keeping rear differentials in the thing - too many burn outs.

A 1986 Ford Ranger my father had put 125k miles on. Paint would wash off and the center drag link was about to come apart. No real magic in that truck, but it did get me where I needed to go.

71 Mach 1 Mustang bright yellow with black stripes. Man it was a fun car!
The funniest comment I ever had about the car was one girlfriend asked why I had my birthday on the side of my car? I calmly replied, my birthday is March 2nd.
