How old were you when you got your first car?

What kind was it?

How long did you have it?

My dad bought me an 81 VW rabbit...powder blue...for my 16th birthday. I think he paid $400 for it from my grandfather who sold used cars as a side business. It was a POS...omgosh!! It broke down in front of the school once and everyone still makes fun of me for that..uggg. It left me stranded so many times and this was before everyone had a cell phone. The last time it broke down my mother picked me up, called my dad, and told him to tow it himself and keep the darn thing...lol! I didn't have my own car for a few months after than until I turned 18 and she co signed a loan for an 87 hyundai. I made my little payments every month and drove the heck out of that car until I got married.

I had a 88 Camaro, light blue. My dad bought it for me when I turned 16.
I had it for 2 yrs or so, then traded up to a Chevy Cavalier.

I bought my first car when I turned 17 and got my license. An '87 CRX. I loved that car. Stick shift, no power steering, manual locks, rust all over it - but it was loud, and it was all mine! I drove it for maybe 2 years, and when Dmitry and I got together we started using his car (an Acura Integra).

I was 20 and it was a 94 Sunbird lol. Not a horrible car, but the Rad was messed, and then the key got stuck in the ignition, so I got rid of it.

I had a 1980 Fiat Spider. I LOVED that car. No air or power steering. Convertible! It was really hard to find parts for though, and the speedometer topped out at 85mph. it eventually just ended up dying. My parents bought it for $1700 when I was 16. I only had it for 2-3 years. After that I had a Honda Prelude.

I didn't have my own car until I was 23 years old, my parents couldn't afford to buy me one. I took the bus, walked or relied on others for rides. When I finally bought one it was a 93 Ford Escort.

My first car was an '82 Plymouth Horizon. It was powder blue and was a stick shift. I was 15 and my sister was 17 and we bought it together for $400. It lasted right at 6 months before the transmission finally gave out. That thing was a piece of junk! We seriously had to pop the hood and work on the ?air compressor? (can't really remember what part it was) before it would start...EVERY time we wanted to start it! When it broke down for good we sold it to a mechanic my dad knew and he paid us $400 for it!!! So all it cost us that 6 months was the money for insurance...not too bad a deal.

My parents gave me the old family car when I was 16. It was a 1969 Ford Galaxie, that was the car they took me home from the hospital in! AM radio, vinyl seats, of course no AC. I had that until I was 18, then I got a Ford Escort.
