    yes, it was '61 and the car was a '50 Lincoln 4 door sedan, black w/greyish/green cloth interior.
     
  2. My first car was a '62 Studebaker Lark. I wouldn't mind having it back just for old times sake and all. I sold it to my cousin for $250 after owning forabout 6 months. I paid $125 for it in 1978
     
  3. i bought my 66 chevelle back after i sold in 1984. sold it to a kids dad i went to high school with. they drove it from my house to theirs. the car sat undriven until i bought it back two years ago. i had to go to south dakota to get it. the car was like a time capsule. i found my probationary drivers licence under the carpet and a few old check stubs. when i went to get it retitled in my name the lady at dmv said it was still in my name. i got lucky because the kid lost the title. i met my wife in this car went to prom in it and this was the first car i ever ran at a drag strip. when my daughter asked if she could take it to her prom i said that would be so cool. someone recently asked if they could buy it and i told them this one is price less too many memories. and we are adding to the memories list every time we drive it. so yes i would get back my first car. wi plate myfirst

    If I ever sold it, I'd never be able to afford it.....

    1965 Corvette Coupe my parents got as a wedding present from Gramps. Matching #'s etc....
    They ordered it new....
     
  9. Looks like there is a pole out there somewhere that would match up perfectly with your car :eek:

    It was not my first car, but this summer while browsing on Craigslist I found my 4th car a 1965 Barracuda that I traded for a 1964 Chrysler 300K back in 1991. The barracuda still had the paint that a buddy of mine sprayed on it and still had the Interior I had put in it at Raul's custom Interiors in Pomona. Looked OK but needed to be redone. I was very excited driving out to see it but once I was there it was great for reminiscing but eh for the desire to own it again. it was about an hour from me here in Illinois, 2 days later My first car, a 1967 BeledereII convertible showed up on Ebay down in Florida. I know for a fact they were both my old cars, as the Belvidere had the 1966 Grille I installed because I found it mint in a junk yard back in 1982, not to mention it was a 67 with a Poly head 318, could not have been too many of those as 1966 was the official last year for that motor...

    Its a tuna can ( or maybe a Lexus 1/4 panel:p) by now. But yes, I would probably build another small-block pinto, if I ran across a decent body. It was a fun little death trap...Back to the seventies!
     
  20. Still got my first, sitting in the barn waiting on me to 'fix it up someday' OT 79 Malibu...
    But on a cooler note, i got my dad's first car. Got it home this summer, plans are to remake his old hot rod that him and my grandpa worked on....

  21. Out of over 100 cars thru the years, there is probably less than a handful I would like back. I recreated a high school type car a few years ago because I thought it would be cool to own one again, but after driving it on it's first run after the rebuild I put it up for sale. I forgot about chattering clutches and stock steering boxes and all the things that made me get rid of it in the first place. Basically it was a restored 48 merc with radial wide whites. Sure glad I didn't waste my money painting and reupholstering the car before I drove it. Also confirmed I am a small block chevy guy. Pat

    In a nano-second!! 1939 Ford Coupe SBC sold in 1966.

    That is if it still existed. Last I heard it was a circle track car, 1970, so I doubt that it is still a car.

    Murfman...I don't believe that someone found a photo of one of those.
    That was a cool deal for sure

    Yes but it was probably crushed after I turned over the title to the insurance company,I should have kept it and taken the reduced settlement but I was young and dumb.
     
  27. i heard that same story this morning about a guy who sold a Nova,only to see it a week later smashed to crap ,on the back of a wrecker.

    Sure would. My first one was a clean 57 300-C. I bought it in 64-65 for as I recall 200.00. Had it and three others, plus a 58-D ragtop and a garage full of body parts and 392s. Sold everything in 74 to follow my pecker to California. Well, at least I still have the pecker...:D

    If I would have ever sold my first car, I would definitely do all I could to bring it home again. Too many memories to let go of.
