    I don't remember.

    It was probably the Zephyr.

    Here's my son driving his mom and me in the car he came home from the hospital in.

    1967 Chevrolet Corvett. 427, 4 speed, side pipes and the knock off wheels. Sold it for a nova in 69 when my broher showed up. I needle him on its current value VS. the nova. The nova was a 307 slide combo. Drove that until 81

    Pretty sure I came home in a Pinto. Almost died in the same Pinto a few months later, still have the scar above my eye where the glove box door stuck in my head.

    My oldest came home in my '71 Buick GS convertible. My daughter and youngest boy in a 2000 Lumina.

    Wow! I started this thread a long time ago and I'm thrilled to see it still going! I've also heard occasions where TWO different generations have come home in the very same vehicle that may have been in the family for a very long time obviously. A father brings his boy home from the hospital in his late-Sixties Musclecar that he inherits in his Twenties just in time to bring his own baby home. Heck......anybody know of THREE generations in the very SAME vehicle possibly?!

    Came home from the hospital in a 56 Chevy blue/white 4 door V8 with a PowerGlide. Laying in the back seat on Mom's lap with Dad driving, about a 10 mile trip to home.

    Born in 1972. Got to ride home in Dad's first new car - a base model, stripped down V8 Cortez Silver '70 Chevelle. He special ordered it w/ rally wheels, Power steering, PG, AM radio, and nothing else. Funny that Dad ordered no options due to his finacial situation, but he DID specify the sporty wheel upgrade. Definitely the work of a hot rodder! LOL

    He later added SS wheel opening moldings, blacked out grill, and white letter tires. Nothing exciting - just a 307, but that is all he could afford. While not a "hot rod" and definitely, off topic, I find it cool that my very first car ride was in a car that was slightly customized / personalized. :)

    Here's a pic from ~1972.
