    Default What was your first car?

    My first car was a 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback. It was as close to a basket case as can be when we had it brought home on a flatbed. I paid less than 1200 for it and over the next 2 years my dad and I restored it from the ground up. I worked 2 jobs during the school year and picked up additional work during the summer, just about every dime I earned went to that car in one way or another but by the start of my junior year bin high school it was a thing of beauty.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    My first was actually a motorcycle; 82 Kawasaki 440LTD back in 1985 (Junior year of high school). If memory serves it took about six months of saving my fast food job paychecks and my mother to co-sign before I got to bring it home. Loved that bike and drove it all over the place including a wild week long 2,000 mile trip across the state with my high school sweetheart (her parents didn't approve, but we did it anyway! ). It wasn't until a year later in 1986 I got my first car; a puke green 75 Dodge Dart with a straight six engine. It was a very early graduation gift and an outright beater. I put a lift kit in the back and threw some Keystone rims on it with fat white raised letter tires on the back and small ones on the front, some big ol' speakers in the back and a kicking double-reverse cassette deck, then rocked it through my Senior year of high school like I was cool or something. Boy was that straight six a bit of a dog, but it ran like a champ; took a lickin', but kept on tickin'!

    A 1979 Volkswagen Dasher wagon (The Passat in Europe) fell to me when I came of age. It therefore became my responsibility to keep it running.
    It started me on a path, which I am still on, in which I have never owned anything other than a VW. Hence my screen name.
    Dasher - 79 Scirocco - 86 Scirocco - 85 Cabriolet - 92 Jetta.

    Lol Im the youngun here. I didn't get a car in high school. Pat and Ben where my primary source of transportation. My first car was a '92 Honda civic beater. We bought it from his sister when my husband graduated AIT. He totalled it the day after having it registered. Paid 1000 for it, got 2000 back from insurance. Then we bought a 2006 mercury mariner. The transmission started slipping resulting my husband getting in a wreck and totalling it as well. We now have an 08 Toyota prius and it is the most trust worthy car we ever owned.

    My first car was a 1969 Chrysler New Yorker, and that was in 1976-77.

    It had a bad muffler when I got it, and so I put on a glass pack because it was cheap. The 383 sounded real nice, but the car was so heavy that I spun the tires too easily without getting much forward momentum when I tried to play drag racer.

    I think I've lived in apartments smaller than that car.
