    Default What's your first car/truck memory?

    Just curious what everyone's first memory of a car is?

    My dad had a '65 International Scout II with the full removable hard-top. He dropped a 327 in that thing and had a great off-road warrior. I remember being a kid in Boise, Idaho driving around that thing with the top off in the summer. Good times!

    I'm not sure which memories are earlier, but I remember a '66 (I think) Chevy pickup. sky blue exterior, white interior. I remember getting jammed in the knees when my dad shifted into 2nd. The floorboards were rusting, so every dirt road filled the cab with dust. The other was a green '71 Plymouth Fury III.

    My first car memory is my dads 9 passenger, 4 speed, 63 Chevy wagon, his first new car. My first memory of riding in it was going on vacation while we stationed in the Phillipines (around 1968 or 69) we were going through mountains and he kept having to up and down shift, since I was the youngest I had to ride in the center of the front seat and the shifter kept hitting my feet.
    I hated that car, until I got a old enough to drive and found out just how pwerful a Chevy 409 was. I'd give a lot to have that car back now a days.

    My first car was a 69 super Bee w/ 383! Guess how long that lasted? I was 17. My license expired almost as fast as the tires on the car did!
