    Mine was a 1962 Chevy Impala. It was an 11 years old car when I bought it in my senior year for 250 bucks. Before that I drove my Dad's 1963 Fairlane Wagon or Mom's 1966 Ford Custom 4 door. The 2 fords both had inline 6's with 3 on the tree and the 1962 Chevy had a 283 with a powerglide.

    Hey, my bother had one of those when he was in high school (long before me ;)).
    Except his was a panel and all yellow (orignially white).
    235, 3-on-the-tree and a big ol' Pontiac rear end (to this day, he still tells me that was the strongest rear axle ever put in a car).
    I remember he put an 8-track in it and ran a couple of speakers into the back section.
    I was pretty young back then, and just thought it was a cool place for me to play in. :p
    He had picked up a couple of 283's and was going to make one good one from two bad ones but never did.
    Dad let 'em sit there until he joined the service then chewed his butt for leaving the engines sit and told him to get rid of 'em, so he did.
    The car was gone by then, anyway. :rolleyes:

    55'Vert. This is the only picture I have of it, taken when I was putting a '58 T-Bird grille in.

    It was totaled in an altercation with a brand new '65 T-Bird.

    next was a 58 Borgward Wagon and a 49 Packard Limo.

    I cruised around in a '83 cutlass supreme with a 1965 corvette 327 engine, coupled to a fresh 700r4, it was pretty fast, but still a boat on the road, but extremely fun to drive. (1999)

    The only two worth mentioning that I had was a white 1993 Thunderbird LX 5.0 that was pretty much stock. Wish I still had that car. The other was my 1993 Mustang LX that was actually the first car I ever bought. It was a 4 cylinder with an automatic, and I swapped it to a five liter v8 with a four barrel on it and a five speed behind it. It's the only car that I've ever held onto.
