My first car that I brought with my own money was a 1965 Barracuda Hatchback. I paid $300 for it because it needed a paint job, the car looked like a spotted leopard with the white patches of primer on it. For an additional $300, I did an Earl Schrive paint job on it to a nice blue. The car had a great engine and lasted me many years until New York had one of those rare hurricanes which lifted a tree which demolished the car. which was over 30 years old at the time and still running like a dream.

My first car was a 1947 4-door Ford that I bought in winter of 1955.  I paid $50.00 for it without a working driveshaft. Repairs to driveshaft cost me $25.00 and I installed it myself. I drove that car for 2 years with no problems, then sold it for $75.00 and bought a 1952 Ford 2-door hardtop in 1957 for $250.00. Kids can't get bargains like these today. Drove that until 1959 when I bought my first new car, a 1959 white Ford Edsel convertible for $3,130.00. Top of the line car. This car was 'HOT'. For those too young to know, the Edsel was sold by Ford Motor for only three years.This was the best car that I have ever owned.

My first car was a used 1948 Chevy Coupe that had belonged to a traveling salesman who smoked cigars. It had a vacuum shift...the windshield wipers wouldn't work if it needed extra gas to get up a hill. After a couple of years, it would only go into first and reverse OR second and third. A little fiddling under the hood selected one or the other of those two options. I absolutely loved that car and put many, many miles on it

My first car was a 1960 blue Nash Rambler, 4 door, stick on the floor.  The front seats would fold clear back flat to touch the back seat.  The powerful motor was a a straight four cylinder block.!  Great fun.  Sometimes the gas pedal would come lose when driving causing your heart to jump.  Best times when the seats would fall back while driving.  Most of the time however when my date now my wife were parked in the driveway kissing!!!
