    Mine was a 1979 Mercury Monarch with 150K miles on it. I paid $250 dollars, LMAO. I can still remember the smell of the vinyl interior. I worked my butt off when I was 15 to buy it and have it painted and body work fixed. I was super proud of it!

    What was your first car? Pics are a bonus...............

    You could simply not kill that motor if you tried. I know from experience.

    1973 Ford F-150. Bought it for $1 at an auction when i was 15, and it had a blown engine and beat up body. My dad and i restored it completely including an engine rebuild, body work (with lead for structural parts and minimal use of "Bondo"), and interior. This was in the early 80's. My dad is a street rod enthusiast and has a dedicated over/under garage out back just for his car restorations. He wanted to use this project as a way to teach his young aspiring engineer about cars from top to bottom and inside out. we finished it just before i turned 16.

    it was an amazing experience i will never forget and was a great father/son project that grew us closer at an age where most kids grow apart from their parents. i learned more about mechanics and practical applicaitons during that project than all of my time in the university.

    '52 Plymouth station wagon, flathead 6 and 3 on the tree. I paid $95 for it the summer of '66. I drove it until I went to boot camp in November of that year. I sold it to a house painter just before I left. Mom told me she saw it around town for years. It was a fun car.

    A 1966 Ford Custom. I paid $600 for it from money I earned on summer jobs and my paper route. It was an automatic with AM radio only and no AC. I lived in Florida. The pic is not my car.
