My first Car was a '55 chevy Sedan (got it when I was 14)-as I recall, I paid $100-this one didn't last long.

Second Car was a '57 Chevy Belair-I had this Car in the Tri-State Auto Exhibition in Denver, in 1972 (?)-it had a 327 with a 4 speed, chromed Dash, and my Brother painted it a Silver-Blue color. It had it all (in my eyes)-even a Dash mounted 8 Track Player! I clearly remember playing "American Woman" on the 8-Track while rowing through the Gears!

great documentation cboy

i bet the 57 ford was a police interceptor engine, can't believe you still have the paper work, back then no one thought about such things. did you ever tote canolopes in from a field or pull corn on the farm like i did?

My first car was a 66 bel air, petty blue(after my older bro painted it for me)
I traded it for a doge with a 440 magnum, but it was beat, so I had a buddy who needed a drived and traded that a 64 pontiac LeMans for ,marimba red,326 3 speed, hurst shifter, bucket seats ,console , all Needed some work, but I had it running after a week of working on it after school.
My other bro helped me put a clutch in it and it was off to the races.
That explains my current ride...64 Lemans,only this one is getting a warmed over 400.

1st car

First car was 1954 mercury flathead, $25.00. Had a crack block and I did not go to far in that I was 13 and I drove it around the farm a couple of times and took it apart. Then a 1965 440H American. That translates to a 6 cylinder with a two barrel!!! Then I got a '65 GTO. Put in a Isky 310 degree cam, Belanger headers, a Holley 3 barrel and a few other additions into that. Then I got a '66 GTO with trips, love that car. Plus along the way I had projects, T-Bucket, 34 sedan, 36 Dodge coupe, 55 Chevy 210, 68 El Camino, 62 nova, and that list goes on Then a '68 vette convertible, had that awhile, about 6 years. Now I got 29 sedan, 27 roadster, 96 vette and a 50 ford chop top project. Also I will admit that I got about the same amount money that I had 35 years ago, none. Seems that I spend it ALL on cars.

I began driving at the tail end of 10th grade(1984), and I had a payment plan with my Dad for his copper '78 AMC Pacer that he had bought new 6 years earlier. But it spent almost that whole summer in the shop, so I gave it back to him and bought a 1974 Mustang II, 4 cyl, auto, with aluminum slots and wide tires.

Then, in 1985, I bought a 1978 Cobra II with a modified 302, with about 270hp and a 4 speed. I owned it for a year, blew up 1 transmission, then sold it and bought my 4th car.

It was a red 1971 Torino GT, with a slightly modified 351c, about 325hp, auto.

Then I bought my 1st '65 Mercury Comet.

Then I graduated.

my first car i drove was a 5 speed 1986 Plymouth Voyager it was a gutless wonder i jumped it off the oil pan and it was fine, hit dozens of dead things in the road and bounced it of a telephone pole but it was good to go, it would just die if i had the AC on and came to a stop sign... oh i paid about 200 for it it was $1500 but my folks waived my debt when i graduated high school

Man, I was born too late.

My car in high school was a 1984 Buick LeSabre. Bought it for $100 (in '91). A theft recovery, it had a punched column and the dash and headliner were cut up. Fixed the column for $50 and put 100,000 miles on it. Sold it to a friend for $500 and he put another 100,000 on it.

Good times....

First ride was a 56 Caddy I got from the original owner with 28,000 miles. cost $500. Then I traded it in for a 64 Cutlass, white 2 door hardtop with red bucket seat interior and 4 speed. God I wish I had that car back.

My first was my truck, this photo was shot in the school parking lot, 1977.

Another "car" I drove was my dads 55 F-100 shown in the other photo with my brothers Roadster. I don't have any photos of it back then on my computer and it certainly didn't look this good but it had the same 401 Buick in it and I had a ball smoking the one tire thru the parking lot and out onto the street.

Mine was a 67 GMC Custom with a 305 V6/auto trans. Dad gave it to me with the understanding that if I tore it up, I was walking. I walked quite a bit Didn't have a real job, just cutting grass and odd stuff to support gas costs,lol. Didn't drive alot till I graduated HS and got a real job. 2 engines,3 trans and 1 rearend in 5 years on that poor old truck.

you have no idea, I sold it and the kid I sold it to totaled it 3 days later. Hit one of the cement posts in a parking lot that they used to mount the light poles on.

keep them coming

Great cars and great stories, no one has mentioned going to the drag strip or street racing. I fessed up to illegal racing and an even more illegal part night job, come on and come clean. I can't believe no one has mentioned bagging groceries or pumping gas to pay for your ride and gas. Does anyone remember what they paid for gas in high school? garrell
