My first car!

I was on the ooze earlier and someone asked, "what was your first car?" My first car was a 1970 Ford Maverick. It ran and that was about it. It had no AC. I had an underdash FM radio with an 8-track player. What was your first car?

Cool Maverick!

The first vehicle I learned to drive was a 1965 Chevy pickup...standard-issue dark green, wooden floor in the bed...cool!

But my first car I owned was a 1978 Ford Pinto...bright! orange! Black-and -white stripes! Very, very cool!

'69 VW bug, dark blue, named Herbie.

My oldest sister and her (new at the time) husband bought it brand new. My dad bought it from her in the late '70s and I was given the pick slip for Christmas in '84.

It had no a/c (not fun in the desert of So Cal) and a little push-button/dial am/fm radio with one little speaker up front.

Ah, but it was all mine!

I had a 1970 VW Bug when I went to Samford. The brakes didn't work well and it had been wrecked so it actually drove crooked down the road. I can show you all of the places I broke down on I-59 between Birmingham and Tuscaloosa!

Awesome! My second car was a 1970 Ford Maverick - blue, 3 speed on the steering column shifter, serious noise in the front suspension - a real chick magnet (thankfully she married me anyway)!

My first car was a 1964 VW bug. I loved it, but my mom thought it was unsafe so the Maverick was a college graduation gift. :-(

I couldn't afford an 8-track player until my 3rd vehicle, but that's another story.

Speaking of steering problems in VW Beetles - driving down the Interstate near Seattle my Bug suddenly developed 8 inches of play in the steering. It got progressively worse until it would only turn to the right. I had to work for a couple weeks to collect enough money for the repair. In the meantime I found a way to get from home to work and back again making only right hand turns!

Sorry, my first ride was a Motorcycle. I lived in Seattle so after 6 months I realized I needed a rain shield. My first car was a ford tempo. Very Sexy.

My first car was a '73 Chevy Nova. Paid for it myself when I was 16. It was blue when I got it but I took it Maaco and got the $199.00 special and turned it metallic red...My son, who is 16 , has his first car now. A 1975 Buick Electra. We call it the Big Red Boat because it is HUGE. It was passed down from my wife's uncle (who bought it new) to her dad and now to our son. Still has the original 8-track and CB.
