1969 Road Runner bought from the people that live next door. It was factory stock but did have a 383 V8 and a 4 speed on the floor. Over time I built the engine up and added a Hurst 4 speed transmission and painted from white to blue. Fun car for a teen. My favorite car was my second car, a 1970 Ford Ranchero with a 351 Cleveland motor, again over time built the motor up and added a camper shell, had that car for 10 years and alot of great times in it. I wish I still had it. It was in perfect condition when I sold it after ten years.

My uncle gave me my first car in 1976.  1970 Opel GT. Bright yellow.  4 speed.  Loved that car.  My grandfather told me if I couldn't learn to fix it, I couldn't drive it.  By the time I wrecked my baby, I could take it apart and put it back together blindfolded.  Really miss that car.  Thanks Pa for teaching me (your granddaughter) how to fix my own vehicle.

1956 Ford black 4 door Crown Victoria, V8, stick shift.  Got it in 1958 and sold it in 1960 when I enlisted in the Air Force.  Great car.  Second was a new1961 VW beetle, I believe it was around $1500.  Amazing, could not kill that car.

I turned 16 in 1963 and got my first car - a 1952 Desoto.  Unlike today's cars it was made of rolled steel, heavy and solid.  Built like a tank, it took a bit to get up to speed, but once it got rolling it was a smooth and fun ride!  Lots of room inside, too.  They definitely don't make cars like they used to.  Smiley Happy)

A graduation gift from my parents, it was a 1970 Ford Maverick.  An interesting color, not quite maroon, not quite burgundy, I called it maroogundy.  It was a great car.  You just don't see Mavericks anymore.

1958 Chevy Nomad Wagon.  Bought it for $100 but had to replace the clutch.  First time I worked with my dad on anything.  After a few months I started modifying it with parts from "Midnight Auto Supply", stolen parts.  In my defense I was pretty innocent at the time and didn't realize my friend was into that sort of thing.  I just knew the parts were cheap!
