    My first was an old 41 ford. Last I knew it went to the Toledo area, doubt it survived as it was rusty even when I parted with it many a year a ago.

    My first car was a '72 Vega running a 327 sbc. It died an ugly death when I was t-boned on the highway by an old lady who lost control of her green Chrysler.

    I got mine in the later part of 1967, when I was not quite sixteen. A 1940 Ford coupe. Currently, it's sitting leaking on my driveway.

    my Pops recently found info through a friend on his "first" car from high school...he actually owned a 63 Impala SS and 67 Cyclone, but considered his 1969 Cougar Eliminator to be the first since he paid for it himself.... worked 428 CJ and heads, Winters-built C-6, blue with white stripes...sold it for something like 2500 bucks in 1979 to a young guy who ended up driving it to Michigan and totaling it....apparently, a friend of my Dad's found the car based on the VIN, and it is just a shell of its former self...oh well :(
     
  14. Not exactly my first car, but my first "real" car as it had a v8. I had several before that. It was a '67 SS Chevelle, around 1979, and it ended up at Boothill Auto Graveyard in New Richmond, Ohio. The guy that had this yard was a real character. He was into WW2 vehicles. I remember going back there with a buddy to get a front spindle. We road up the hill in his (owner's) Halftrack. One of his goons cut off the spindle with a torch and upon getting back to the office we noticed the guy cut off the steering arm instead of the tie rod. The owner, pissed off, hurled it through the windshield of a car and went and got us another one. The owner had a bad run in with the courts and took every opportunity to protest the corrupt system. He had huge signs (length of a low boy trailer) that he would park near the highway. The signs had a swastika and said "Gestapo Government" and Judge Ralph Hill is a "peckerhead" He also would bring his WW2 tank and a load of cars up by the highway and run over them, smashing them flat. Some said he was crazy, but most knew he was just a patriotic American fed up with the syatem. He and his displays made for some memorable impressions on this 18 year old (at the time) kid.
     
  15. TxRat, that wagon is cool as all hell. I love it.
    Dont know how I missed this thread for this long! My 1st car was an O.T. red on red '69 Cougar sport special. 351W with a 3 spd on the floor. It was wrecked when my dad bought it for me. I fixed it with my own money and my own work. As soon as I got it running/driving I traded it for a '56 Chevy Belair that came home in 2 trips! :rolleyes:
    The Cougar was totaled in a roll over accident. The '56 went down the road because I was a kid in (way) over my head.

    I have no idea where mine ended up. It was an 81 Z28 that was in ok shape when I got it. I drove the hell out of it for about 2 years before the transmission went out. It sat for another 2 years in my parents garage before we sold it to a kid down the street. It was really rusty by that time. he drove it for awhile and moved away to college. His sister told me he sold it to someone at school. Never saw him or the car again.

    I wish I knew, I'd buy it back. I've tried looking up the VIN but all I get are websites that can decode it. Since it is less than 17 digits, none of the locater sites I know of can do anything.

    I still remember it for some reason: 6T07T260885

    I had a 67 Mustang coupe for a first car. It was sitting in a junk yard somewhere near Merced Ca last I saw of it about 13 years ago. Got rear ended at a stop sign by my mom the week after I finished it while I was driving to my Grandparents. She wasn't paying attention and shoved me straight into a irrigation canal on the side of a road.

    It was a piece of sh*t when I brought it and it was a bigger pile when I dropped it at a scrap yard.
    Considering it was only 20 years old it must have had a really hard life.
    Everything was stuffed

    It's probably been recycled a few times by now. My first car was a $200 '69 LTD which was later rear ended by a drunk driver back in '79. The 390 went in a buddy's F-250, the C-6 ended up in another buddy's car. After pulling all of the good usable parts the rusty hulk left on a hook...

    My 65 galaxie most likely went to the crusher back in 80,I wrecked it in late 78 and by the summer of 79 had it all straightened out and in primer but someone pulled out in front of me in 80 and mangled the front end again so I let it go and took the cash. Could of bought another 50 dollar parts car to fix it but it was winter and did not want to mess with it.
     
  26. Have no clue, sometimes I see one that I think is it but it's not. I don't miss it but would be interested in seeing what it looks like. Sold it 5 yrs ago locally after 28 yrs of owning it.

    Still have one of my high school cars! Unfortunately, I for some reason kept the least desirable of the batch - '62 Falcon 62C car... Not the smartest move! The first one I had was my '35 5 window that I found in '77 and had running with a 265 Chevy and hydraulic brakes by '79 or so. I sold it in late '80 to a guy that was going to "properly restore it as it should be", and it was disassembled and sat under a tree in Apache Junction, Az. until 2003 or so. I've seen it once since then and it was too expensive to buy back at the time, and have lost track since.
