Well, if it's first cars we're talking about then here's mine.
1986 Pontiac Grand Prix
This isn't my exact car, mine was a rusty brown color which was nice because it made all the real rust blend in :) I had it for almost two years when I seized the engine after doing my first oil change without my fathers help and I forgot to make sure I had removed the gasket from the old filter :) and that's when I got the Camaro.

I had a navy blue 1985 Olds Cutlass Supreme. That bad boy had a 350 rocket with a turbo 400 tranny, and a buddy of mine ran straight pipes right off the engine block for me, so not only was it fast but LOUD. The motor ended up seizing up, and while I was trying to save up for another motor, the city had it towed from my moms driveway because it did not have a plate on it. My old man had white 1978 Monte Carlo that looked like the one Denzel Washington had in Training Day. That car was beautiful! It was one of a kind because it had leather bucket seats, the gear shifter was on the floor instead of on the steering column, a landau top, and came from the factory with the 350 motor. He ended up getting an '86 Firebird and giving the Monte to his sister. She ended up totaling it in a car accident :) I already told my wife that when we have become empty nesters, I'm going to get a '78 Monte like my dad's customize it to be an exact replica of the one in Training Day.

I've had alot of nice old cars over the course of time but the only one I wish I had back was a 1963 Chevy Impala SS convertible,red on red with a white top. Saw a blue one a while back and it just about made me cry....oh well.So lessons learned I quess I'll keep my 86 Vette till I'm too old,decrepted and fat to crawl in the thing.

First car was a 1962 Hillman Super Minx ( name is a misnomer )

1592 cc, 4 cyc. - 4 speed, 4 doors and thats about all there was to it. No seatbelts, as warp speed was not an option that year.

Was living in Hawaii, so no need for any more power than that.

Had it all the way through High School, and with a surf rack on top, Iron Butterfly blasting from the 8 track, was one sexy beast !

Most of my friends had VW bugs, but everyone knew the H-man by it's sound.

Yea, you will always remember your first... flood of memories, thanks !
