    What was the first car you drove?

    Not the first one you purchased, but the first one you ever drove?

    Mine was a 1981 Navy Blue Buick Century, which was horrible.

    What was yours?

    Not 100% sure, could have been a 75 Ford Pickup or maybe a 68 Gran Prix. It could have been something else, I honestly don't remember.
    I do know that it was at Jabez when I was around 12 or 13.

    Dad's 1973 Monte Carlo.

    Triple black, Chevy small block 350, and steel turbine wheels. Everything in this photo is correct except the wheels. That car had to have been 25 or 26 feet long...and I'll bet about 6 or 7 feet worth of the side panel was door.



    I was 9 years old. Mom and dad had walked over to school for open house night at school (I grew up living across the street from my gradeschool and church). My oldest brother was supposed to be watching us. I realized my mom had left her purse by the door with the keychain hanging out of it, so I decided to grab the keys, go out in the driveway and pull the car back and forth in the driveway about 5 or 6 times. Then went back into the house, and no one was any the wiser.

    Mine was a Ford Maverick (don't remember the year).

    However, I do have a picture of the first car that @mcpapa drove.

    A 1970 black Ford Falcon. I eventually wrecked it and my dad was mad at me for a month. After that, he bought me my own car. Another Falcon.

    I’m strongly advocating for a suspension.

    My Uncle Albert had a '60 Biscayne and let me drive it on his property. I was about 12 or 13 at the time.

    1984 Volkswagen Golf, with manual transmission. Was great for taking my driver's test in because it was small and could fit into any space for the parallel parking portion, but most of all it gave you a valid reason for not always having two hands on the wheel.
