1958 Chevy Nomad Wagon.  Bought it for $100 but had to replace the clutch.  First time I worked with my dad on anything.  After a few months I started modifying it with parts from "Midnight Auto Supply", stolen parts.  In my defense I was pretty innocent at the time and didn't realize my friend was into that sort of thing.  I just knew the parts were cheap!

Got my first car in the summer of 1959... a 1951 Chevy stick shift. Unfortunately it got a low score on the Cool Scale as it was a 4-door. My folks bought it for me for my upcoming senior year for $100. It had 75,000 miles on it and I drove the heck out of it and put about 25,000 miles on it over two years.

 

It was undoubtedly the best bang-for-the-buck car purchase I ever was involved with! No major repairs and a new set of rubber over the hard two years.

My first car was a 1965 2-door Chevy Corvair.  I remember my dad and the car salesman tried to convince me I should buy the 1962 4-door Chevy BelAir but to no avail. I loved the Corvair with its 3 speed manual stick on the floor and flat H-6 cylinder air cooled engine in the rear similar to Porsche. Bought in 1969 about time Naders book came out. Wish I had one today.

1954 Plymouth. My Explorer Troup bought the car as a group project. We changed plugs, points, wires, brakes, overhauled the carb., etc.

My first car was a 1941 Nash Ambassador. It had an inline six with "dual ignition"  (2 plugs in each cylinder). It was FAST.

1964 Chevrolet Nova Chevy II 2 door hardtop. My brother owed me a hundred bucks and gave me the car for it. My stepdad had a good 250 six banger that he helped me, or should I say I helped him, swap for the worn out 230. It wasn't fast, but it never left me walking.

A 1962 Chevy Bel Air. I bought it from my brother! I even learned to do a few fixer-upper tricks, much to my parents' dismay (girls didn't do cars back then).
