What was your first car?  Love to hear about the different cars everyone first owned

Mine was a '62 Chevy Impala, 2 door hardtop. Forgot if it was SS, don't think so.  Light , light yellow.  Paid $1,200.00 in '69.  Wish I still had it.   Just had a 283 ,  whatever that means.  I am a lady, so don't know that much about cars. Well, i know a little actually, as my husband taught me about cars...even helped him work on. 

 

A lot of good memories,  still have a picture...

Had a blue on blue 1980 Chevrolet Chevette Hatchback for ten (10) years. It served me well through college days, working at SAFECO Insurance Companies before selling it for a brand new Boyensberry blue 1997 Ford Escort LX before going into semi-retirement in 1999.

 

Actually my first car was a red '63 Nova coupe but back then I was a teen (naive) my father took ADVANTAGE of me by having it in his name on title.

 

Of course he didn't give me the car title upon being 21 years old myself (legal in Washington State).

 

Now that I'm older and wiser.... Have everything in my NAME on legal paperwork, title, etc!

I had a 1949 Ford with a steel pipe to keep the driver's seat upright so I could reach the gas pedle and brakes. I did not have air condition and very hard to turn. We worked driving to get where we had to go.

I took it to school in High School and taught the nuns how to drive so they could get there driving lic.

Good times back then.

A British Racing Green Triumph Stag convertible.  I spent more time under the hood than in the driver's seat but it was a lot of fun
