Man, some of you guys had some really nice first cars. :-° I had to pay for mine from a measly grocery store salary so mine, as I mentioned in the other thread, was an Escort. An '88 Escort GT to be specific. Something like this. Had a moonroof, '80s carphone that didn't work, and, yeah, I had a stereo system that probably cost more than the car too.

No doubt. The pic I posted to represent my Cutlass isn't a very accurate representation, mine was a bucket. Well it ran really well but it looked like crap, literally, it was turd brown. :-b

"Turd Brown" sounds like a very appropriate color for a first car. :-D

Well...I guess the '68 Cougar wasn't technically my first car since my name was never on the pink slip, but I did get to drive it for two years before I went off to college...I don't know if that counts. There I had a job driving buses and was able to buy a 1979 Jeep CJ-7...which got ripped off from a campus parking lot two years later. :-t

Luckily, I had theft insurance...but it was a sweet vehicle and it sucked when it got taken.

Yeah, by that measure, 'my' first 'car' was a an '88 Honda CBR. I saved up cash working on fishings boats and paid cash for it. Looked exactly like this one.

My first was/is a 98 Pontiac Grand AM. It's been reliable and best of all, paid cash up front for it. ;-D

My first was a '68 Comet. Had a 390 - 4 barrel in it, 335 horsepower. Had an automatic transmission but would still squeal the tires between gears. Man that sucker moved! I'm too lazy to dig through a half century of photo's, so I Googled it (mine was gold with a black vinyl roof):

I can't find a decent picture, but my first car (back in 1986) was a 1979 Ford Pinto hatchback in canary yellow. It was a stickshift, with an 8-track cassette player which I had to purchase a converter for. It was a great car and a freakin' sherman tank.
