    1972 beetle convertible. Had installed a Porsche 914 engine and doghouse style fan. Top speed wasn't much better but it would get up and go. Floors and frame rotted out and i had to retire it.

    1972 Pinto runabout, paid $150.00 for it and beat the living s**t out of it through high school. That car just would not die. I hit a deer with it and messed up the right front fender. Went to school with deer fur stuck in the fender, kind of made me "most popular " for the day Lol.

    I owned several cars before I even had my license and never got to drive any of them beyond my driveway and back yard. One happened to be a super rare '74 Buick Apollo GSX that I loved to death but my mother sold because it needed so much work. I also had a '78 and '81 Regal, and a '78 Grand Prix (I grew up in a GM family). My first official car that I got to drive and spend a lot of time with was a '87 Cavalier Z24, and for what it's worth that car had some balls for a NA 4 banger.

    Worked my arse off at Subway at age 16 to buy an '85 Camaro Z28 with a 350 crate motor. It ran like **** (probably something simple fuel or spark related, but I was young and dumb), but had new paint and a mint interior with T tops. The girls liked how nice it looked and sounded when I drove slow. ;) Then I bought my '89 GT that ran like a raped ape, and I never looked back at those bow ties again.

    my first vehicle was a 1967 ford f-100 was originally a springtime yellow color but we painted it a single stage deep blue in 3 coats 1 all blue 1 50/50 clear/ blue and one all clear had a 300ci 6cyl 131inch wheel base 2wd 3 speed Ford light duty trans (wish it was at least the Warner t89f medium duty).

    i had just redone the interior when it was stolen. I've always missed that truck.

    How many of you still have your first car? I do, 1981 Delorean. Learned how to drive it at 13. Drove my Dad around since he couldn't drive it due to his heart attack. Drove it every day to school at 13 then put him in the driver's seat and sent him off to work. Then my sister would pull him out of the car at work. Then at 16 he bought a Caddy and gave me this. What a chick magnet. We would pop the doors open going down the Ft. Lauderdale Strip, girls in bikini's would get in.

    No Flux Capacitor jokes, heard every single one since 1985. I'll pass along to my boys then have them pass it to there kids.
