Tell us about your first vehicle and when it was
Mine was a 1956 Chevy 2 door. I got my restricted license in 1972 when gas was .30 per gallon. I acutally drove to school when I was in the 8th grade.
I sure wished I had that car now. My Grandpa gave it to me because he bought a newer one and the dealer didn't want the 'ol 56 as trade in.To be a good Law Enforcement Officer you MUST know the law!

Mine was an old blue 4 door Olds Cutlass, either a '70 or '72, I can't remember. I got it in '77. Dad really fixed it up and had it painted. Cool Car, but he disabled 2 of the 4 barrels of the carb somehow LOL.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

84 Olds Firenza, in 1992. One of the bigger POSs that I have ever driven, and that's saying something. I learned a lot from that car - namely how to replace just about any part and how to talk to the guys at the junk yard.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

'84 Pontiac Firebird. Dad bought the car new and gave it to me when I was a junior in H.S. (1992). Still have the car, it's under a shed in my yard. My wife hates it, calls it junk, but I can't help but dreaming of fixing it up one day. Still runs, but I don't drive it, just start it every now and then.

A 1970 Dodge Charger 318 c.i. It was primer gray with the same stock rims as the one in the photo. It wasn't much to anyone else but it was the best thing on wheels to me. (I never lost a race at the old airport runway) Thanks for the memory Al. I'd almost forgot.

Ha! 440. It's probably a good idea I didn't have that. I changed the photo because my grill was the full chrome piece like the one above.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

1990 Geo Metro 3 cylinders of pure pissed off beaver power.
I could drive all week for 4 bucks of gas and it went great in the snow.
Wasnt the greatest car but my Dad paid $2200 for it and looking back I appreciate him doing that."And don't go home, and don't go to eat, and don't play with yourself. It wouldn't look nice on my highway", Buford T. Justice

I actually had 3 cars from the ages of 16-17. First car was a 1972 Volkswagon Super Beetle...POS for sure, but it was had for the grand price of $800 bux....parents bought it for me AND my 16 yr old step brother to share, like that was gonna work..so when that came to bloodshed a short time later, I bought a 1972 Chevy Nova for $400, with a salvage title. Ran good, looked like green primer ass...sold it, and bought a 1980 Toyota 4 wheel drive truck...loved it, and rolled it500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.

1973 Ford Maverick coupe was my first car. It was some sort of orangish tan color with a vinyl top.
Blew it up on Seattle Hill Road trying to impress Kristina. She was not impressed, but helped push it anyway. She was a sport.
Found an EXACT lookalike minus the back two doors...
I got it in 1990 from my grandmother.

1990 Ford Tempo GL. My mom's old car. Got it in 1996. It was midnight black. I put a set of JL Audio subs in the trunk, PPI Amp, Pioneer CD player, and a 39.99 neon light shift knob on the shifter. I beat the hell out of that thing and it always came back for more."Like" us on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...93147194083228

She idled at 15 mph!
Mine was green, looked great on the outside, but the undercarriage was rusted really bad. Bought it for $500 in 1979, sold it a year later for the same amount.Molly Weasley makes Chuck Norris eat his vegetables.

1985 Chevy Caprice Classic stationwagon. "The Shaggin' Wagon" Could load 8 buddies in there comfortably, up to 12 with people sitting on laps. Rear section had the rear-facing seats.
Used to love whipping shitties in that thing in the snow. Got air on a small bridge that crossed a water outflow, near downtown St. Paul, with 8 friends in there at 60mph. The bridge effectively acted as a jump.The views expressed in the above post are the sole opinion of the author and do not reflect any official position by the author's employer and/or municipality.

My first car was a '67 Mustang. It was red of course because everyone knows red cars are faster. 289 with Hooker Headers, a 3/4 race cam and a big ole Holley 4 bbl carb. Just what a 17/18 year old needed. I got that in 1970.
I got about 9 MPG with it, but gas was only 22- 25 cents a gallon, and at a Hess about 15 miles from my house, we could sometimes get it for 18 or 19 cents per gallon.
In '71, I traded it in on a '69 Mustang. That one had a 302 which I found to be underpowered, so I traded it out with a 289 which had a very aggressive cam in it and put the headers and carb back on. When I kept blowing the trannie, I ended up building a [mostly] Fairbanks racing transmission for it and, for a short time, had a low geared differential. The result was the car topped out at about 92 mph.... but it got there real fast!
