What was your first car?

Something fun to do, what was your first car?

Mine was a yellow`74 Chevy Nova with a 350 automatic. Loved the gas, but a fun car. Just for good measure my next was a `77 F100 straight six banger with 3 on the tree.

51' Pymouth Cambridge 4 door with the flathead straight 6.

Second was a 50' Plymouth that we swapped a Chevy 216 straight 6 into. The Chevy engine was a huge mistake. The old 216 was essentially an overgrown lawnmower engine because the rods were lubed with a modified splash. We should have kept the original flathead.

I had the same 51 Plymoth, 4 dr, flat head 6 as Lady Fitzgerald. Burned quart of oil per tank of gas. I loved that car until one day the trunk would not open. Problem was I had a bucket of minnows in the trunk at the time. After about a week of warm summer weather the smell drove me to tear the back seat out to get them out of there. :drooling:

1964 Chevy Super Sport - 327 and (ugh) automatic. In my exuberant youth, I disconnected the a/c compressor to gain a couple extra horsepower....did some more hopping up on it and had to run 32.9 cent a gallon Ethyl gasoline.

I think it was a 1984 or 1985. I hated that car.

1970 Malibu. It was 5 years old. Nice car, but ate gas like crazy.

Mine was an old, rusty, 1956 Olds 88 that wasn't much to look at. The one thing it did was get me away from the farm while in high school!

This be it.........,
