A brown 1979 Toyota Celica hatchback. I hated it at first (thought it was ugly) but soon grew to love that car!

I get bonus points for learning a stick shift on the hills of S.F. Talk about nerve-wracking! :P

1990 Toyota Camry. Still own it. Just passed 217,000 miles. It’s got decent gas mileage and I’ve thought about getting a new car but this one still has sentimental value for me.

It was passed down from my grandfather, to my dad, to me.

1946 Dodge Coupe…first one manufactured after the war. It had been in a bad collision and my grandfather, in the auto salvage business, banged out all the dents. I got it when I was a jr. in HS (1956) and had a license. A true clunker, but I loved it. I threw a large piece of yellow canvas over the dusty seats.

62 Studebaker lark. I got it when I was 16 as payment for building a porch for an old family friend. Black, 6 volt, 3speed on the tree. I sold it two years later to a collector who restored it. Now it is in a museum back east. It only had 23,000 miles on it. It was in 84 when I got it.

1983 Audi 5000 we got for $1700 + plus tons of repairs over time which cost an arm and a leg. it was pretty sweet for a first car, though…Leather, power windows and sunroof, power mirrors, power antenna—oh yeah it was loaded!

we bought it from a guy in a grocery store parking lot. we drove it home and found out that the rear passenger side door didn’t open and the trunk had a combination of key turns in order to open it…don’t ask. i guess we could have gotten our money back, but for some reason we kept it. it eventually died on me while i was driving on the interstate…had it for about 3 or 4 years, i guess.

1972 Chevrolet Impala that “rained” inside when it rained outside. A passenger in the front had to open an umbrella on her lap to avoid getting soaked. Nice.

Wow, most of them seemed to be that ucky green color, you got lucky! I don’t even remember the gold, but it was a popular color (in other cars that year).

1970 Merc Cougar XR7 with sychronized turn signals and hydraulic light covers. What was the first car I ever had that had a fire in the trunk? A 1970 Merc Cougar XRZ. What was the first car I ever puked in from drinking too much? A 1970 Merc Cougar XR7. There are other milestones in that car, too.

My mom gave me her ‘81 Chevette 4-speed manual when she bought a new car.

The first I owned was an ‘87 VW Golf 5-speed manual that I bought brand new when I was 20.

oh man I wish I could have a 46 dodge now lol

gailcalled's avatar

@them: My mother drove me to pick up car. I had to drive it home on a major road filled w. traffic, having spent one driver ed class learning how to shift. My mother said that the Dodge crept along, leaping up and down like a Mexican jumping bean, since I had not yet mastered the clutch/gas thing (I was 16).

@them: all that mattered was that it was a car and meant liberty for me and my friends. I finally mastered the manual system before I stripped all the gears and was free at last.

My very first car was a 1971 Chevy Corvette given to me for my 15th birthday!

The very first car i purchase myself, was a 1978 Lancia Beta Scorpion, (for those that do not know what that is) A man by the name Pininfarina (he designed the Ferarri) as well as this car.

Silver ‘89 Toyota Cressida, when I was 16, that we called Grandma because it was a big four door car! What I did not realize then is that it was a luxury car.
