I’m not sure if this is a light hearted post or not; but my first car was a 1968 Dodge Coronet Super Bee 440 6pack. American Muscle as they say.That car could shake a dead person awake. I sold it I wish I could find it again. Sold it when I was drafted in ‘69

Mine was a 69’ Ford LTD. It had around 127,000 miles on it when my father bought it for me when I was 18. And he bought it form a co-worker that had his 3 kids drive it as well before we got it. and we had to do some work on it as well which we did ourselves. We got rid of it with 160,000 miles on it. and it did not a lot more work on it when we got rid of it.

My first car was a 1969 GTO that a bud of mine and I built from 7 wrecked GTO’s at one junk yard, my bud had the title since he was 10 mos older than me but in the same grade. My first registered to me car was a 1977 Thunderbird that I had to take a loan out at the bank to buy it from my step father for $1,500, That was when I learned that you had to make your monthly payment even if you paid 3X as much a month ago. Been driving pickups since I got rid of her in 1992.

Now I’m at the point where my wife let me have a mid life crisis (Honest, she forced me to go look at it :yum:)

1977 Ranchero 500, got the front end of a T-Bird and a truck back end, perfect!

Cheers,

'65 Convertible Mustang, 289, still runs 15 second quarters. This is how it looks today:

Not mine anymore - I told my son if he could live to 25 I would give it to him. He turned 30 this week.

1980 Dodge 400. It was a pile that lasted 5 months. My next vehicle was a 1991 Chevy s10 bone stock with a 5 speed manual transmission. That little truck lasted me 6 years and I only paid $600 for it. When I traded it in I got $700 in trade value.
