I guess I am a youngin' ....My first car was a 1980 Chevy Impala with a 267 V8 - what a slow tank! I had to share it with my twin brother so we kept the tank on empty and would put $1 or $2 in it every time we went out. It could "run into" lots of things and still come out without a scratch unlike today....



This is the actual first vehicle I learned to drive a stick shift on -- I loved the double clutch action --

I'm only 62. I was in my late forties, early fifties and divorced before I bought my first new vehicle. I was 19 when we bought the '51 Pymouth.

You never forget your first one. My 49 Ford was almost 10 years old when I got it. Paid for it by bagging groceries at A&P.

Mine was a 1950 Chrysler Windsor Club Coupe. No, I'm not that old. I inherited it from my great aunt when she died. It was 14 years old with 14,000 miles on it.
An earlier post said something about a slow V8? This sucker had a flat head six, weighed 3,900 pounds and had Chrysler's Prestomatic transmission. It basically was a two speed transmission, but had a clutch. The shift was on the column, but you only had reverse and low (where second would normally be) and high (where third would be). The first gear position wasn't there. Normally you would press the clutch, start the engine, put it in the high position and let the clutch out. Yes you could be stopped with the clutch out. When you started up by pressing the gas you would get to a point where you needed to shift. You just let up on the gas and it shifted into the higher gear. All without touching the shifter. But sloooooooooooooo. It was worse on performance than a Buick straight 8 with the Dynaflow transmission. Who remembers that one?
