Without pictures I have no real proof but I think I may win the prize for the ugliest first car. Mine was a 1960 Plymouth Valiant with a silver paint job that had oxidized all the way down to bare metal in some places. That car didn't even look good when it was new!
To add to this insult, I bent the driver's door so bad (another story) that I had to replace it. The only door I could find was a blue one from a Dodge Lancer. While the door fit the door frame, the trim on the Lancer was different than that of the Valiant. So I not only had a different color door, the trim didn't match. It kept the rain out though!
Anyway...it was mine....it ran and it was amazing how many friends, including girls, wanted to ride in it.
