I bought the 69 1/2 Camaro...the newer style...blue with black vinyl top.  So proud of it...don't think as cool as yours though...My boyfriend(soon to be husband)  wanted me to get the Z28...but I really think he was thinking about him driving...

I can't remember if it A.C..

My fiirst car was a 1966, 6 cylinder, Oldsmobile F85, which I ordered at the showroom and waited the "standard" 6 weeks for arrival. I paid $2,600 for this brand new car and drove it for 8 years, when I traded it in on a 1974 Dodge Dart Sport, with the infamous 318 8-cylinder engine and a 3-speed transmission on the floor. I remember, though, how outraged I was over the fact that in 8 short years, I paid $900 more for this brand new car, which cost $3,500!! Oh, what I wouldn't do for those days... The "kick" is that even at those costs, the 1966 and 1974 vehicles were much better made than today's vehicles, which are many times the costs.

My first car was a beige 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 with a 392 cubic inch engine and a 2 barrel carbuerator.

It was used, I bought it from my mother in 1972.  That car served me well  till I traded it in, in 1981.  It would start when  nothing else started and made it's way through the snow pretty well for a car with rear wheel drive.

My first car was a used 1975 Chevy Nova - robin egg blue.  I added a great stereo system so I could play my radio loud.  LOL  Teenagers!  I only had it for two years and sold it to my grandmother when I moved to San Francisco and didn't need a car anymore.  I often wonder where it is these days...

A 1937 Fiat 500, look it up it was a very advanced little car for its time. In Italy I learned years later it was nick-named "Topolino" - (clock-work mouse). Watch for it starring on Turner Classic Movies next time they show "Roman Holiday"

The crazy things we did while driving that car, its amazing any of my friends & myself lived to tell about it. I still dream of someday owning another "66" GTO, no other car like it. It was a true Muscle Car & my 16yr old lead foot took full advantage of all that power. I sold it for $900.00, now its worth thousands. But for me its not about the money. I just loved the freedom I felt driving that car.

 

 

A few of my friends didnt, though.

"Hot Rod" out of it."Sad" They had to do that! Life goes on.
