Right after I got my driver's license in 1968 I purchased this car for $200.00 from a neighbor.
It's a 1956 Lincoln Premier, about a year later with it as a trade-in I had enough money to buy a 1964 Chevrolet Impala convertible

My first (that I paid for ) was a 1954 Chevrolet pick up.  It was painted metallic blue, the seats had been recovered, but mechanically it was a piece of junk.  But for $175 what could I expect.

 Don't laugh, but my first car was an '83 Lincoln Towncar...I never even got to drive it just own it until it was sold for junk. So much for a hand-me-down car being worth anything. Lookingup

Very first car was this:



A red 1996 Aerostar XLT.  It had relatively low mileage when I got it, probably 60 or 70k.  Ran fine.  In the time I drove it (around 2.5 years) it had only one or two problems, and they weren't serious.  It even got almost 20 miles to the gallon, which is pretty good considering this "minivan" had similar interior space to a full size van. 

Not much to look at, but my biggest concern with a car is usually that it works.

The first car I paid for is my current one.



1999 Infiniti I30.  Had about 94k when I bought it, now I'm at about 108k.  Word is still out on how happy I am with it.  It's had one major repair in the time I've owned it, and nothing since...  So, if it stays fairly reliable for another 12k miles I'll be happy with it. 

Aside from reliability, it drives very well, has plenty of power, great AC, and is quite comfortable.  I'm happy with it on all of those levels.  MPG is just average, I normally get combined around 21-22.  Dedicated highway is around 27, maybe 28.

This was the model, but it was 12 or 13 years old when I got it, mustard yellow with bald tires... wish I had that car now.   Twirling

Mine was a 1980 Toyota 1200 pick-up (or "bakkie", as we call them here).

I had it from 1993 to 2008 and parts became a problem locally, so my parents sold it and helped me with the down payment on a Fiat.

I miss that "bakkie", though.....it could go anywhere and do anything, except cook breakfast.  TeddyR

A 1995 Ford Taurus, my sixteenth birthday present. Drove it till 2001, when I sold it to a friend for a dollar because I didn't want to drive home (again) from college. Lot of memories in that little car.

I recently found this picture in a drawer and remembered this thread.



Honda Accord, I think 1982 but don't quote me.  It had a hatchback and the rear seats laid down for "cargo space."  Knowing what I used that "cargo space" for I would never give a teenager of mine a vehicle like this.   Wink

Note 80s hair, impossibly thin frame, Rush T-shirt, and girlfriend too inexperienced to realize she could do better than me.

I think it was an 1986 or 87 red Chevette (not completely sure of the year). It was 5-6 years old when I got it used. Actually someone eventually bought it off of me and it ran for several more years after that. I recall she was standard, not automatic. Have to say I greatly prefer the 2002 Pontiac Sunfire I have nowadays in terms of style and look although that little Chevette ran well on little gas and required surprisingly little care.
