Re: Post pics of your very first ride!!! :)

I don't have a picture of my first ride, but her name was Sue and her father was an accountant

But my first car was a '68 Beetle.

I drove a 1969 Chevrolet Townsman station wagon similar to this one. Dad's "gift" to me when he bought a Nova!

327 V8 with a PowerGlide automatic.

I told the folks I didn't want a red car, but they wouldn't listen...

Re: Post pics of your very first ride!!! :)

Why would anyone want to see a picture of a beat up '90 Cavalier?
Here's what you do, drive through any trailer park in your nearest rural area, and you will probably find a car that looks similar to my first car.
I think this thread is more appropriate for the older guys that got muscle cars as their first cars...
