Another thread got me thinking about this.

Find a pic of your 1st car when you turned 16 on the net.

Here is mine. 1964 Mercury Comet...

(mine however was copper colored rather than red)

1958 Plymouth Fury, salmon/pink color with white top, tons of chrome, and push-button transmission. LovedLovedLOVED this car! (Picture Christine ... only salmon)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Christine.jpg

I inherited this car from my mother when I got my driver's license and she moved up to another newer vehicle. It's funny ... I can remember thinking 'ohmyGodno' when I got off the bus after school and looked up the street to first see this pink/salmon monstrosity sitting in our driveway but by the time it became 'mine' I truely loved it. Maybe part of it was the freedom it represented - I have many fond memories of this car taking me and my friends around town and beyond on so many adventures - but I also think that by the time it was 'my car' I appreciated the fact that nobody else was driving anything remotely like it.

Mine was a 1979 "Puke" Green Buick Regal. http://www.chooseyouritem.com/classics/files/84500/84558.html Not much to look at , but it always ran perfectly and had an air conditioner that I swear could make ice cubes it ran so cold ! The car made it to 2 other owners , a friend of mine who drove it for 2 years and he then gave it to his mom becasue it still ran so well , but she totaled it with 120,000 miles on it.

1967 VW bus w/Westfalia camper gear. My parents bought it new and picked it up in Frankfurt...we traveled through Europe for 9 weeks, then they had it shipped back to California. The next year (1968) we traveled coast-to-coast & back in it. In 1973, it was my High School graduation present.

Hmmm, let's see...my parents gave me the VW, my aunt gave me luggage, my cousin gave me a travel shaving kit. I wonder if they were trying to send a message??

My first car was a '68 Ford Torino GT. The color was called Jade Black metallic, in any kind of shadow it was almost black and in the sun it was a beautiful dark green. It was much too fast for a first car but I never wrecked it.

67 Chevelle Malibu, 283 V-8. Mine was Earl Scheib white, but it had SS hubcaps and a Cherry Bomb muffler. Huge trunk for hauling all my worldly possessions to and from college. Nothing much to look at, but it never let me down. Maybe the Beach Boys have got it now....

1969 MGC six cylinder. I bought it in '73 for $1800. I had it for six years. This is a picture of someone else's MGC, but you get the idea.

This is a picture of my actual first car, a 1955 Chevrolet BelAir. It was a factory V8 automatic car. I bought it when I was 14 for $100, and the year was 1975. It had just turned classic. It ran but reverse was out. It sat in my back yard for a while before I sold it to someone as a parts car. Regret selling it? You bet!

My first car was a 1977 Honda Civic which was one step above a lawn mower. Honda has come quite a long way since then.

It was like this but in light blue which made it even more hideous!

I bought a '68 GTO used in 1972 as my first wheels. I remember the insurance guy when my dad and I went to get me a policy. Looking rather concerned at my father, he said; "I suggest you consider getting rid of this car immediately". But my dad was cool, he knew I was pretty responsible. Wish I still had it -

Oh - almost forgot to add - it got about 7-8 mpg! But gas was still pretty cheap in those days.

Mine was a 1979 Toyota long bed pickup truck! She was bright yellow. I named her Truckie and she was AWESOME! She had some miles on her, but she went for miles and miles after I got her. I then sold her to a good friend in 1985 and he drove her til she almost couldn't drive anymore, maybe in 1990? WELL over 200,000 miles when she finally died. I loved that truck! She had a fiberglass cap on the back and the back window of the truck cab slid open, so there were some interesting road trips with friends. A mattress in the back, a cooler.......you know!
She had no AC so when I moved down to Florida the year I bought her (1982) I learned about the small clipoon fan and a big cup of ice! Instant AC!

1972 Chevy Impala custom coupe (thing have a really big engine like 400 or 440) Can't remember if it got 8 mpg or 8 gpm. That sucker held more than my last minivin. The back seat was as big as a motel room. Got rear ended once and the other car bounced a few feet back. Didn't need a new bumper, they just stretched the old one at the body shop. And, as a 19 year old college student (this makes me feel old) the insurance costs (my policy not my dad's - he told me if I did anything stupid let it rest on my shoulders) were $354/year. Always remember the exact number cause it was the same as the last 3 numbers on my license plate

EMR, it was probably a 400. Chevrolet made a 400 big block and a 400 small block. The 440 was a Chrysler displacement. As for the mileage, 8 MPG sounds about right. Like I used to say about a few of my old hot rods, "It'll pass anything on the road except a gas station."

One of my college friends ( a spoiled rich kid) had that car. He lent it to the outside linebacker on the football team. Poor Dave turned a whiter shade of Paul when Jim came back a cited how long it took to go from 0-60 and 0-100. The insurance man was right

Also thanks for the feedback BDOB - didn't want two posts back to back

THAT is cool! Gasser style!

Cam, here's my 70 SS454 Chevelle I owned from 1988 to 1991. This was my last project car. Notice the price of gas back then?

The first car I ever owned was a brand new 1974 Old Gold Camaro.

I worked summers when I was 15,16, and 17.
Saved my money and bought a new one when I graduated high school.

Actually. it was my second choice. What I really wanted was a black Pontiac Gran Prix. But I was tired of waiting.
