    I learned to drive on a 1964 Chevy step side that had more colors then the rainbow. My first car was a 1976 buick skylark S. Not sure what the s stood for the only way to get it to light up the tires was to put it in reverse lol. Then I got my 86 honda crx to save gas driving 40 miles to and from work every day. I then bought my dirt bike so darn I had to get a truck. Oh yea bought a truck just to haul the dirtbike around so I got my 97 z71.

    first truck was a 94 1500 Chevy. Reg cab/long bed. 350ci V8 flowmaster single exhaust, had a lot of fun in that truck but sold it and bought a 95 1500 ext cab. 305ci V8. Hated the downgrade in motor, very sluggish truck. Then I wrecked it and drove it for a year afterwards with not a single good body panel on it

    My first truck was a tired 1985 Ford Ranager. It was fine just driving back and forth to school and work. Though when I started to go to college and working. I started racking up the mileage. I broke the following: timing belt, distributor, radiator, u-joints, A/C, and finally the transmission starting to let go.

    Oh well. I know it was a FORD and yes it was Found on the Road Dead a few times.

    My first vehicle was a 1950 Plymouth in 1962. What a piece of XXXX. I put a lot of money in that car just to keep it running. After 6 months, I junked it and bought a 54 Pontiac, then a 57 Ford, then a 63 1/2 Ford Galaxie 500 and then a 64 Ford Galaxie 500, 390, 3 speed. During my 27 year USAF career I spent 15 years in Germany. As a result I owned several Vws, BMWs and Mercedes. I have since owned 66 vehicles and have pictures of each of them in chronological sequence. I am the only one in my circle of friends who has a complete picture album of all cars and trucks owned. I currently own a 2010 Escalade, 2010 Silverado 1500, '06 Hummer H3 (Show Vehicle) and a '03 50th Anniversary Corvette Pace Car (Show car.) Happy Motoring and always "See the USA in your Chevrolet."

    My first vehicle was a 1973 VW Superbeetle. It was a hand-me-down from my sister. I wanted to convert it into a dune-buggy style beetle, but found out that it had severe frame damage (brought on by my sister), that was not worth repairing. Then I bought a CJ-7, lifted with 33's. That was a fun ride for high school, but got old after a few years.

    First car was a 68 Dodge Dart GTS Hurst Special, a piece of garbage. I bought it from a neighbor for $85 when I was 15, it didnt run. My dad only agreed because the engine was in the trunk with half the pieces missing and he figured I'd never get it running, but my brother and I had it running within 3 weeks.

    The drivers outside door handle was missing and the passenger door wouldnt stay closed so I used a rope from one door to the other to keep it closed.

    The 4 speed manual trans only had 1st, 2nd, and 4th. Reverse you got out and pushed, and 2nd to 4th was a speed shift.

    The engine was a 383 B/B I'm not sure why it still ran, when we put it together I couldnt afford real head gaskets so I used cardboard, bailing wire, and RTV to make head gaskets, the rest of the engine had RTV to seal it. She went through a qt of oil every 500 miles, she might have been burning some too cause she had over 200K on her.

    The fuel tank had a couple of bullet holes in it so you could only fill it 1/2 way or it leaked down and left a trail down the road.

    It had 4 different size and brand tires but none of them had tread.

    The drivers seat backrest had to be held up with a board cause the seat frame was broken and would lay back otherwise.

    I drove that car over 35K miles before the trans let go all the way then I parked it at my brothers house and forgot about it for a few years until a collector came by and tried to buy it off me for $500, thats when I found out the rare black with red stripes meant it was a Hurst Special and one of only 1900 built that year so I hung on to it thinking I could get a better price, a few years later I ended up having to pay someone to haul it away.
