    1950, my dad bought me a 1935 Chev coupe (IIRC he paid $28 for it), a bit rusted out at the bottom of the doors a few problems with the electricals and brakes....but who knew, the car and I were both 15 years old...used it to drive to Lake Mahopac where I had a little 14 foot boat and motor...
    I had this in Putnam Valley NY where we had a summer cottage.

    78 Transam. I now own a 74 T/A 455 but it's not show worthy. I do enjoy driving it though.

    Didn't know it as a restomod back then, but a modded '63 Split Window Coupe - candy apple red with knock offs and side pipes. I'm not a fan of mixing options between year models, but it was my initiation into the vette world, which I've never been able to shake...The '63 Split is one of my grails which I have yet to add to the very small collection...I'm running out of room in the garage...

    Wanted, but talked myself out of it as I never liked dealing with electrical issues. But still...and I did own several others already posted.

    I remember sitting on a used 900 ss many years ago at a dealership. iirc the price tag was about 2k. Man I wanted it bad, but didn't have the scratch.

    That's a familiar story...
    I restored a 1986 Datsun 280Z 2 seater 6 speed Tranny for my daughter and my wife drove it and said NFW! Sold it to an Oral Surgeon and made a few Grand on it. I bought her a new KIA Sorrento this was in 2003.
