My first car was a 1977 Firebird Formula. I worked at my cousins bar on the weekends so my dad would buy me things and I would pay him back.. I traded the Formula in for a 1979 Trans Am. I ran the hell out of that and then I found another 1979 Trans Am with only 42,000 miles on it that was a 4 speed. I drove that for a year or so and traded it for a 1983 Z28 with only 37,000 miles on it. I then traded it for a 1993 Trans Am brand new. Well anyhow I could go on and on but I just wanted to see what kind of car was your first...
A beautiful Midnight Blue 1941 Plymouth that had been nosed and decked, with white & red pinstripes and rolled and pleated powder blue interior. The dashboard had been chromed and it was a beautiful car planning to become a future streetrod. However, I pushed that POS further than I drove it since the block cracked and I never had the money to put a new engine in it. Burnt more oil than a freighter.
1965 T- bird, had every option avalible ... and because of the options the lady that was the original owner ordered it had a 429 cobra jet !!! what !!!!!!!! yup! go down the road doing 95 and it floated like cruise ship !! but then again, it was as big as one also!!
My first was a 1968 Plymouth Satellite bought in 1973.
In 1975, I purchased my first "new" car, a 1975 Firebird Formula, kept for 2 years and ordered a 1977 Trans Am. From that point on, it was the TA in the garage while I used other cars or vans for the baby seats etc.
After storing the T/A for the better part of 8 years, I sold it to a friend.
Regretted that move for years, but when I was looking again at getting a muscle car of old, I fell in lust with the C6, so I quickly forgot about the old muscle car days, and decided on new technology, and a better handling and better riding option than the old bone crushers of old.
