    My first was what was left of a 1962 Plymouth Valiant after my buddy threw a rod through the original Slant Six. My dad and I put an engine and clutch in it and replaced the rear springs. I learned a lot working on that car.

    '1968 Olds 98 with a Rocket 455 4 barrel'

    Whoo hoo, me too. Mine was the ex-family car and trailer tower, green with a black vinyl top, with a stripped third gear in the auto transmission. Reliably stalled at most intersections during the winter.

    I wish I still had it - what am I thinking, hell no I don't want it back.

    1975 Toyota Landcruiser

    It was full of rust and only went 60mph tops (that may have been a good thing looking back). It was all I could afford at 16 with $500 in my pocket.

    1987 Ford Tempo GL sport. The guy I got it from pimped it out. Very fast for a 4 banger. It was cheap and I was young.

    Mine was a 1985 black in color Ford escort. With black limo tint and red graphics. Sweet ride. LOL It rusted out because I went to the beach everyday to surf.
