What was your first vehicle?

1960 VW bug with the mighty 36 hp engine. 0 to 60 was maybe, if no headwind. With a tailwind it was 72 seconds. With a headwind it was not going to happen.

Mine was a 1959 or 60 version without a gas gauge.

While tectonic plates could beat it in zero to something, it was mine and got me off the ranch. I loved it so. I bought from a friend of my father's who was transitioning to a job in DC: $139 scooters, the price of a one-way ticket from LAX to DCA in those days.

'65 Corvair Monza.
An automatic with the little lever on the dashboard.

If it's still out there, it probably looks like this by now.

The first car I owned was a 1953 HenryJ. I wasn't old enough to drive it off the farm.



Dad sold my HenryJ when we left the farm. When I was 16 I bought a 1960 VW Beetle for $600.

Like this one..but with air in the tires and much more rust.
(I considered this color to be "red". Friends always called it "orange". It was a issue of contention.)

1959 Austin Healey 100-6, got it in 75' and just sold it last fall! Didn't drive it for over 20 years and didn't see me driving it again, so I sold it. Don't miss it at all.

1977 Ford Mustang II. Anemic 4-banger. I worked at $3.35/hour from 14-15 years old; paid $1,500 cash in 1983. Put in a reman engine, drove the hell out of it. Photo is not my car; took it from interwebs.
