Default Firsts

Got into a discussion at work about firsts and thought I'd see if anyone here might be interested in participating.

The questions....
1.The car you used to take your first driving test for your DL?

2.The first manual transmission car you ever drove?

3.The very first car YOU owned?

For me, it was...
1.1965 Pontiac Catalina
2.1941 Chevy
3.1959 Chevy Impala convertible

Can you explain how a '26 Model T is the first car you ever owned? Are you going to tell us that you leased prior to that (leasing cars wasn't even a common thing 40 years ago)?
