    My first car was a '67 Ford Falcon Futura 4dr, 200cid straight 6. Bought for $125 in 1976. Replaced brakes, ball joints, shocks, repaired floor panels and rear quarters. My dad said you want a car, you'll learn to work on it. Drove the shit out of that car for 4 years and sold for $500. Miss that one, even if it was a 4dr

    Which I think was a rebadged Mazda model that wasn't imported into the US as a Mazda. But I might be thinking about earlier Fiesta models.

    My first was a '73 Gremlin, which I was given as a hand-me-down in 1990. It was three-speed floor shift with factory a/c. In rural Kansas you could get what they called a 'school permit' at age 14. Drive to school and activities only. Supposedly.;) When I went away to college in '94 my great-uncle (grandma's brother) handed me down his '84 AMC Eagle which I drove for years. The first car I actually bought with my own money, in 2005, was a 2002 SAAB 9-5 Turbo, silver, with stick shift. That was an unassuming looking but very fast car! My brother and I drove straight through from Emporia, KS to Boston in a little under 23 hours , including pit stops.:D
