    Car-Motorcycle thread

    We all have that car or motorcycle we used to own and we wish we had never gotten rid of. Or maybe it was the first car that you learned to drive in. Or even what you are driving now. Post your pictures here of that vehicle that was or is part of your life. I learned to drive in my moms Electra 225. Had to share with her but it was usually mine at night. Thing had a killer back seat for making out in. It would eat the gas but it was only .29 per gallon back then. 😊

    Back before I got my license I was forced to ride with my older brother in his SS or stay home. He became my best friend.

    Good thread idea 71

    I would love to still own my first two cars


    67 Mustang



    Yea the color is ugly but this was my first car. Dad got it for me used .
    Got two speeding ticket the first month i had it so my insurance was sky high until many years later.
    I add mag wheels and drove it thur college then gave it to my younger brother who promptly totaled it.


    72 malibu



    It looked like this one minus the racing stripes. First car i ever bought myself. It was used but had low mileage when I got it.
    Back then drinking and driving was the thing to do so I did it plenty.One night driving home from the 747 lounge out by the airport i nodded at the wheeler and did some damage to a utility pole. Got it repaired but it never drove the same after that.

    95 Lexus 300



    Loved this car. Sunroof , CD changer in the truck and even seat warmers. i bought it in New Jersey while there on business after some thief made off with my Acura from the Trump Plaza casino in Atlantic city. What really pissed me off was my new set of Yamaha golf clubs were in the trunk and the insurance did not cover them.
    When i moved to Georgia it got traded in for a pick up truck (when in Rome )

    I always liked Malibu's. Why does it seem we always wreck our first car? You'll notice the Electra has scratches down the passenger side where i got impatient and tried to pass. Unfortunately the car in front was turning left. Mom and Dad weren't too happy but I had 2 older brothers and I'm sure it was expected after raising them. Thanks for adding to the thread.

    This is my first vehicle that I purchased. It was t-boned in the driver door and I picked it thinking it would be easy to fix. Turned into a hell of a project. Had to remove body and straighten frame. Then cut out cab piece from another wrecked truck and weld back together. Dad taught me a lot on this project and especially not to bite off more than you can chew. Here is the finished product after repairs.

    My pops was an aircraft mechanic for National Airline and never paid anybody to fix anything. He had a garage work shop that was the first place he went when he got home from work until mom called for diner and then Walter Cronkite for the news.
    He often dragged me out there to hand him tools and stuff and finally let me change spark plugs. Skint my knuckles up and got all greasy.I think I decide right then I wasn't going to follow in his footsteps.
    I usually pay somebody now a day

    my first car i ever owned was an 87 Honda accord.... almost had this thing to 200,000 miles, but then in mid-winter would get me half way to work and die on me. sold it for 500 bucks and still wonder if the people that bought it made it half way home or not.... they knew the risk!!!

    so many great stories with this car though too!!!


    this obviously isnt a picture of my actual car

    Yep spent many days holding the flash light or getting the appropriate tool for Dad also. New cars are so complicated you almost have to take them in to be worked on these days. I pay to have mine fixed these days also.
