Mine was a silver '73 Pontiac Ventura, with the 250 in-line six, automatic. Was a great car, same body as the Chevy Nova.

The first car I owned was a 1964 Ford Fairlane 4 dr sedan with a 260 V-8 and three on the tree. Dynasty green was the color. It would make short order of a stock Chevy 327 with Powerglide. My dad had 59, 63 and 67 Chevys- all with Powerglide; and what dogs they were with that two-speed slush box. "Slip and slide with Powerglide", they used to say. However, Powerglide was one of the most durable automatic transmissions ever made, and one of the few that would allow you to start the car by catching it in gear; just like a manual.

Now, the first truck I owned was a 1978 Ford F-150 SuperCab with a 351M V-8 and a Borg Warner T-18 four speed.

I bought a brand new 1961 Renault Dauphine in August of 61, paid $1,795.00 for it. Less than one month later I was shipped to Germany when the wall went up. Could have bought the same car over there for $750.00 or a Gourdini for a grand.

My Renault was a piece of junk and only lasted about 3 years after I came home in Dec. 62.

Deja vu, That is the same car I had. I replaced the grille with one from a 1950 Pontiac.

I had a 55 Chevy coupe later that I wish I still had. Traded it in on a new VW for $100.
