what was your first car and your best memories in that car?

What was your first car and your memories in that car?


I had a purple 69 cougar and use to drag race all the guys in their souped up car. remember back when I had this car I was 16 and everyone jacked up the back. I use to race title for title, never took their title, getting beat by a girl was bad enough for them? brings back lots of good memories.

My first car was a 64 Chevy Chevelle. I lived with my g.mother and had accepted the fact that the only car I would be driving was the one at Driver's Ed. When out of school thought I get job then car. My Dad surprised me the summer of '72 with this car. Dad had let his brother use for a while. ( he was very heavy ). Dad thought he was being nice and had the car painted a hideous bluish-green. He never knew I felt that way re: color.I kinda feel guilty now for I never told anyone how I felt about the color. The A/C was great it was 260. We let the front windows down and drove 60mph. Seriously. Now the driver's seat,that was something else-my uncle had messed the eat up where it would lean way back-would be cool now, but not then for me. I had to put folded cardboard thick enough to keep the seat in the right position. The 8-track player was a doozy. Almost every other song I had to pop it under the bottom to correct skipping. But the WORST & MOST EMBARASSING was when Dad had the car painted, they also painted the rims UGH!!!!!!. I was really in love with it though, for it showed me Dad really loved me enough to give me the car. He had lost EVERYTHING with drinking and was recovering. I KNow he was trying to make up for past 8 years. Dad I love you.

76 chevy chevette, bright orange. along the bottom it said "rally 1.6". i had to spray starter fluid in the carburetor every time i started it.  favorite memory in it, me and a couple of buddies drove it over a fence into a corn field, and somehow made it out without a problem. the next day we saw the damage and tire tracks and couldn't believe we made it out.  ended up running her without oil and she died..  (loved that car and that time of my life, great topic)..   -jesse

I'm sorry...no offense meant...I'm a bit of a TR nut..and I could be wrong..I had a friend that had a TR2, and then a couple TR3's, a 4, and a 6.  Doesn't make me an expert and I apologize if I came across that way...

Either way, they were fun cars.

My first car was Ford Fairmont.  It was white with a sun roof.  I got it straight from the factory.  I thought I was one cool girl in that car, especially since I got it when I was 14.  It holds special memories for me because it was the car me and a friend were riding around in when my hubby asked if he could go with us.  I let the friend drive and I sat in the middle beside him and after a couple of hours, my friend said, "Are you two ever gonna kiss"?  That was our first kiss, and I am proud to say that we have never "locked lips" with anyone else to this day.

I had a 1936 Hudson which we bought for ten dollars. Someone had died in it and they couldn't sell it even for scrap because the smell lingered in the metal and upholstery. I and my friends ,who all chipped in to buy it, scrubbed it with everything you could think of. We used cresole and water as well as other things like turpentine, (took off a lot of paint inside) lye soap and a myriad of other disinfectants. After about three months we managed to get it bearable. She was a good old car our Betsy and now lies at the bottom of the Toronto harbour making a good home for the tiger mussels. How it got there is another story for later

  On  a technical note, I don't believe the TR3 was available until 1955..prior to that was the TR2..either way..a fun car.

1957 VW Bug, purchased for $300 in 1968., the first of 4 VW bugs for me..had that one, a 63, 69 and 74.  The 57 was my favorite.  Best memories...my own car..dates with my
girlfriend, running out of gas in the middle of nowhere  and remembering I had a reserve tank with 1.5 gals in it..being able to work on it easily..trips to San Francisco (lived south of there) for dates, trips to Clear Lake to water ski..working on it til 4AM with a friend of mine..."racing" with my 2 best friends who also had bugs at
2-3 AM through windy roads to the coast.

bad memories...sitting in it the night after halloween in 1968 as my girlfriend and I broke up, coming this close >< to getting "busted", blowing the transmission and after 2 weeks of trying to fix it, having it hauled out of my Dad's garage to the home of a guy who gave me $100 for it.

a week later, along came the  63 Bug with a whole host of other stories.
