FIRST VEHICLES
What was the first car you ever owned?
What was the first car you and your spouse owned after you were married?

I bought a 1950 Chevy in 1958 when I was 17.
In 1962 I bought a 1960 Chevy Impala convertible.

My wife and I got married in 1964 .
At that time I had the 60 Chevy convertible but still owned the 50 Chevy so these were our first cars.

Both My first and second cars were the first cars of that decade I thought this was unusual and unique.

Approx 1973, atthe age of 15 I bought a 1964 Ford Falcon conv. for $50.00. You could get in the trunk without opening the lid. You might say she was a little rusty.
My wife and bought a 1992 Suburu for our first car together.

First car, 1966 Mustang I bought when I was a senior in high school -- teenage boy and American powered V8's might not be the best combination, but those stories are best left off this family site...

When I met my wife she had an 87 Suburban and I had an 87 Toyota -- the first car we bought as a married couple was a 96 Subaru Outback.

Geeze,

That was a long time ago, I really had to think.

In '70 i bought my 1st vehicle, a'68 or '69 triumph 650 motorcycle. I was 18.

'71 my first Sportster. back then in order to hot rod you had to build much of your own stuff --- not much off the self at least in the small town i grew up in.

'72 i bought my first Vett, a '67 for 1300 bucks. can you believe it, they were relatively inexpensive in those days ... wish i had held on to some of that stuff.

everything after that is kind of blur --- time sure goes by fast.

those were also the days when you could get 19 tickets and still hold on to a license by attending driving school.

these days not much time to hot rod. although, unfortunately i still mange to get my share of tickets, you can only have 5 in 4 years in the state of wa.

interesting ... couldn't afford the tooling back then, but always figured out a means of making something work. today i have all the tooling and equipment, way more knowledge with no time to use it. does make one go hmm ---
