I just only had 3 cars....I'm embarrased after reading all the other posts
My first car was a 1978 Chrysler LeBaron Coupé with 318 c.i. 2 BBL carb, then my father give me his 1988 Fiat Regata 2000 (2.0L 5spd. ....was fast and reliable, a nice sedan) Now I have a Jeep Wrangler 88... I love it...


Like my girlfriend's 1976 VW Beetle... was her first car.

There are a few 64's around with 260's in them but they are rare. My uncle has a 64 coupe with a rare version of the 289 that was only built for 6 months. It was a 210hp version which was a 2v motor that they slapped a 4v on and a 4 speed. He bought it new, his wife gave birth to one of their children in the back seat and now it's rotting in his barn. My dad and I have offered to buy it but he won't come off it. Restored it would be worth some $$.

My first car was a 72 Cutlass Supreme with a big block V8. Good thing gas was cheap back then.

Mine was white with a Tan Landau top. Anyone else remember the Landau top?
