My first car was a 1957 Chevy of course ! Bought it used in 1967. Drove it three years. Lots of fond memories, especially in the back seat. Loved that car !

First car was a 1982 Ford Fairmount. Unlike these cars today, I could work on that car myself.

First vehicle was a 1965 Volkswagon van, two tone. One of the hippie generation!

1969 Camero SS - black vinyl seats & no A/C, but the lack of A/C never bothered me, even in the sultry & humid Georgia summers!  My Dad installed a stereo system (8 track tape!) & speakers that worked without the car on or even the key in the ignation.  Sure miss him & that car.  That car was a hit at parties on the lake - just open the trunk, put in a tape & rock & roll!  Oh, those summer nights on Lake Lanier listening to Skynnard, Zepplin, Allman Bros., etc, etc...

My first car was a 1963 Ford Fairlane. It had a V-8, standard shift and of course regular brakes and steering. It was sky blue and I do remember it fondly. Made it much easier to get a date, as I recall. I got it in 1968 used and other than having to start it by rolling down a hill and popping the clutch occasionally it was a good car. My cousin and my older brother always wanted to change this or that, but as a rule money kept it pretty much as it originally came.

A 1969 Plymouth Satellite.  It was massive--and dark (army) green--and I called it "The Tank."  I was in high school, and I had a car, so, that was cool, but it wasn't sexy or cool, and unlike many people who've responded here, I do not remember it fondly and certainly don't wish I still had it!  It failed to start on a fairly regular basis, and we had no cell phones back then, so I spent a lot of time finding a pay phone to call my dad to come pick me up.  Oh, those were the days! NOT!

1964 Chevrolet Corvair Turbo Charged Spyder Convertible 4 spd Manual Transmission All White with a Red interior. This car was a real sleeper, it fooled a lot of people because it had power.
