A 1963 Mercedes 220S. Black with red leather interior. No radio. Bought for $350.00 tax return from 1971. Was missing back seat but bought a matching one from junk yard. Beautiful.

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!!!

Acura and other Hondas are roomy and low on repair costs. They get miles galore. My 1991 Intega had over 200,000 miles. Still love my 1st car that black Covair with red interior. Had to share it with my big brother . It was suppose to be our moms car. She didn't like to drive, which was great for us!!! We were always driving it. Gas was 25 cents per gallon. I babysat 5 children for 50cents/hr. We always had gas $. We'd "scoop the loop" all the time. It was so much fun. To be seen and to see others-great times!!!

It was a 1956 chev.  I paid $200. It ran great and was in excellect condition.  Believe it or not it was owned by a little old lady who rarely drove it. I only wish these new cars had that much room and low repairs.
