A Gremlin. New at the time (I think it was a '70). Car was so cheap there was no glovebox door --- just the opening.  Can't really recall how much I paid. I do remember tinkering with it --- glasspack, pushing up the timing to get more ooomph (while knocking like crazy).  In those days, I actually did the tuneups. Some of you remember using a timing light.   

Just think. The world was built by the lowest bidder.

First car

Message 172 of 172 (10,528 Views)

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...
