My first car was a used 1960 Chevy Impala which I bought (in payments) for $100.00.LOL!! After many years, I bought a NEW 1977 Ford LTD II, also. It was a beautiful light green with the same white vinyl as yours. I LOVED that thing, and drove her 'til she died. Looking back now I have a hard time imagining driving them. They were SO looong!

One funny memory of the LTD was the first time I filled it up at the gas station. I had a small Mustang before it, and it cost about $6.-$7. to fill it from almost empty. NOW you know how old I am! Well, I was showing it off to my best friend and we stopped for it's first fillup! We had to pool our money (after we caght our breath)...that thing had a 26 gallon gas tank and cost me a WHOPPING $14.25 to fill! :-0

Ahhh...bring back the old days (sometimes)!!!

I had an old '85 Chevy Cavalier. It was pretty awful looking. I finally sold it, to my boyfriend's mom shortly before I went into the Air Force. I found out that the muffler fell off it while she was driving down the road shortly after I went to Basic Training. Oops. Turns out that we didn't get married... ;)

Ugh....I had a old Vega station wagon my step-dad dug up for me. It was so ugly, I spray painted it primer black just so it would be all one color!! My first REAL car was a new, gunmetal gray, Iroc Camaro I bought in 1986. I loved that car. It had T-tops and I really thought I was something driving around with the top off and the radio blasting.....

P.S. Just found your blog last night!

My very first car was an old Plymouth my Daddy bought while I was in high school. I sold it after I married and left home. I don't have a photo. It wasn't very pretty, but it was truly a good car and helped me get around for several years. ♥

My first car was a used 66 Pontiac
grand Prix. Didn't have it long though - the brakes failed and I wrecked it. I was OK. I love antique cars. My ex has a 54 Ford Customline Coupe with power brakes and the first air conditioners put in automobiles. The unit was huge and took up the entire trunk area and the vents were about 7-8 inches long and stuck from the back window to blow forward. Wow.

My first car was a 1979 Mercury Capri and it was flesh colored and powerful.
