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! :lol:

327 V8 with a PowerGlide automatic.

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...

Don't have a handy picture of my original, but this is essentially what it looked like - same color and option package...

It had the 400 engine, non Ram-Air. I didn't do a lot of mods other than some simple bolt-ons (intake, headers, etc.). It ran pretty respectably, but I did more cruising than racing. I sold it to a friend of mine after a year or so so I could buy a 1968 Camaro. The friend almost immediately totalled it.

I had a massive weakness for the F-Body. I also had a red 1973 TA, a brown 1978 TA, and a black 1980 Turbo TA (not all at the same time, of course!).
