    What was your first car?

    I drove a 97 Rav 4, maroon, 4 speed auto 2 liter I-4 that had just about zero power. Hand me down from my mom when the trade in offer was insultingly low.

    Of course her first car got to be a 71 chevelle. Ah well. What were you all driving for your first car?

    I think it was the 1964 Mercury Montego 4 door....150 bucks, and ran good on regular gas, 23 cents a gallon at the time( aprox. 1971).

    lol, 2nd vehicle was a 1946 Lincoln....

    3rd was a 1955 Chevrolet....

    Out , I is, is I ?....:cool:

    '81 El Camino. 305, automatic, maroon, and I still have a thing for El Camino's. I love those things like no other car/truck.

    1991 Toyota Corolla 5 speed. I drove it six days until I wrecked it.

    Then I got a 1981 Cadilac Eldorado(in 2002). It was a boat and got 8-12 mpg with 93 octane gas or it pinged. Gas was like 1.25 a gallon so it didn't matter.

    It had a big old back seat and was all leather inside. It was white and beautiful. I dressed up as a pimp in a 1970's leisure suit I got at Salvation Army for Halloween my senior year. I picked up a couple hoe's and had a great halloween. It was an amazing car, then I got a Jeep Wrangler.

    I got the Caddy brutally stuck by myself on some snow/ice and it took me 6 hours with a shovel to chip/dig myself out. I vowed from that day forth never to own another 2wd as my only means of transportation. That was 11 years ago and I stuck to it. Drove Wranglers for 10 years and now I have a Subaru.

    A 6 year old 1969 air cooled VW Beetle. As cars go, they are really primitive, but it got me where I needed to go. It sure beat riding a bicycle.

    A used 69 VW bug :hippie: :car: I had a blast with that car but it was just not made for the way I drove back then. I melted a valve and had to rebuild the engine, then I melted a piston.

    1984 Ford Tempo.



    ETA: Despite my best efforts, I didn't lose my virginity in that car, but I did (eventually) drive it to the relevant apartment.
