Default What was your first car???

My first car was a 1977 Firebird Formula. I worked at my cousins bar on the weekends so my dad would buy me things and I would pay him back.. I traded the Formula in for a 1979 Trans Am. I ran the hell out of that and then I found another 1979 Trans Am with only 42,000 miles on it that was a 4 speed. I drove that for a year or so and traded it for a 1983 Z28 with only 37,000 miles on it. I then traded it for a 1993 Trans Am brand new. Well anyhow I could go on and on but I just wanted to see what kind of car was your first...

A 1955 Ford convertable (in 1957). The only Ford I've ever owned.

Like this, but I don't have any pic of the real car...

A beautiful Midnight Blue 1941 Plymouth that had been nosed and decked, with white & red pinstripes and rolled and pleated powder blue interior. The dashboard had been chromed and it was a beautiful car planning to become a future streetrod. However, I pushed that POS further than I drove it since the block cracked and I never had the money to put a new engine in it. Burnt more oil than a freighter.

A 1979 Datsun 280ZX 5-speed manual with T-tops. It had only 2 seats as well! I should have known what I would evolve into driving

My first was a 1968 Plymouth Satellite bought in 1973.
In 1975, I purchased my first "new" car, a 1975 Firebird Formula, kept for 2 years and ordered a 1977 Trans Am. From that point on, it was the TA in the garage while I used other cars or vans for the baby seats etc.
After storing the T/A for the better part of 8 years, I sold it to a friend.
Regretted that move for years, but when I was looking again at getting a muscle car of old, I fell in lust with the C6, so I quickly forgot about the old muscle car days, and decided on new technology, and a better handling and better riding option than the old bone crushers of old.
