    OK guys and gals, what was your first car/truck.

    I'll start. Mine was a '67 Triumph Spitfire that had a crushed hood. Got it for a good price. When I bought it I couldn't even drive a stick, a friend had to drive it home for me. I found a replacement hood and me and a couple buddies fixed it up. This was me back in '71. I looks just the same now - NOT.

    That was my wife's first car too. She complained of the heater.

    What heater?:D A fan blowing air off of the engine through some tubes and into the cabin (seriously). I finally upgraded after the floorboards rusted out in the middle of winter and I had slush coming up through the floor onto my feet.

    First car I drove was my friend's father's Ford Galaxy 500. I didn't do too good. That was back in 1968. A few years ago.

    Up in the air, big a$$ tires.

    Funny you say that. I had a 1965 AMC Rambler that was snot green. We called it the boog. God I miss that car. Unfortunate thing is that there is no pic of the car :(

    If you're young, and have your first car - take a picture. You may not like it now, but in a a couple decades it'll be priceless.

    Fastest car was a '55 Chevy Bel Air, with a 350 V8 and 400 turbo auto with 3/4 race cam. It'd blow the doors off most cars on the highway.
