Your first car.

Didn't see this thread anywhere else, so here it is. What was your first car? Did you love it? Do you still have it?

I've got mine. '78 Chevy Impala, bought in 2000 from the original owner with something like 80,000 miles on the clock. Drove the wheels off of it at college, only car when I was first married, and her name's Gina.

The day I brought it home:





How it looks now.





It isn't being neglected anymore, its not parked 600 miles away, and hopefully, some of my long laid by the side plans will finally come to fruition.

Whaddya'll got?

And you didn't keep it?!

Don't feel too bad. I'm seriously questioning my sanity here. Gina might just end up as a demolition derby car- Send her out with a BANG!

1993 Nissan NX2000, it handled great, had some decent power, those t tops, it was a hatch so I could put tons of stuff in there, and it got near 40 MPG. Gas was under a buck a gallon at the time so road trips happened all the time, if we were bored why not drive across the state?



I wish they could make something like it today......and maybe redo the front styling

I had a '71 Malibu with a 350 and a 4 speed trans, I loved that car but ultimately I smashed the front end up and junked it. Life was definitely more fun back then and less complicated.

This one is similar to the one I had minus the vinyl top and mine had magnum 500 style wheels.

Bought it in September 1977 for 595 bucks. Sold it in August 1978. Don't miss it.

1975 AMC Matador, red like this one.

I was given it when I was 15 (1986), and my parents sold it before I actually got my license. I drove it a few times, cleaned it and worked on it a little... so technically it was my first car.

Cut to 2012 and I'm still not sure what to think about the body style / styling of them. Either it could have been pretty cool to fix up, or it would always have remained ugly... still not sure.

1982 Mustang GT. Built it over a year. Silver, black leather, 347 stroker and Nitrous.

Loved that car! Totalled it hitting a deer while racing my cousin in his Corvette. I was winning.

Ever see what a 12pt Buck does to a Mustang at 140mph? It isn't pretty...

So your parents decided to torture you as well....no one would ever voluntarily buy one of these on their own unless they were seriously delusional - I wanted a Mini-Cooper
