My first was a 1965 Chevy Corvair and I paid cash for it. That was back in the old days, cars were cheap, gas was cheap but the average paycheck was also very small.
A dodge dart with a slant six.
1965 Mustang. I have a lot of brothers and they were into cars. There were always cars in various degrees of repair in the back yard. Triumphs, an Alfa Romeo, and more. My parents directed my brothers to furnish me with a working car. They tried to give me a standard transmission car, but I was just learning how to drive. They got the Mustang up and running for me.
Grand Torino Sport. I was lucky, my parents bought it for me. Then they took it away when I got married! Gave it to my brother:(
My first car was a 57 Ford woodie station wagon, 3 speed that needs a clutch which I got for 50 dollars and sold it a couple months later for 100 dolars as I was headed to visit my Uncle Sam in Vietnam
My first car was a 1991 Renault Clio that my mom got me :P
It was a Peugeot 205, what a tiny little beast it was...
First I actually had money in was a '35 International Panel my BF and I purchased for $25. Turned out to be more of a project, as it took two to start it, and with a top speed of about 45 and mechanical brakes, it was "interesting" to drive. Followed by a '52 (?) Kaiser Manhattan that apparently had no rings at all. Had a "52 Ford Custom Deluxe that I sold before going out for a tour with my rich Uncle's Yacht Club. After that I had a '59 Hillman Estate Sedan. Most5 fun car I ever owned.
