    I'm hoping to get a manual wrangler or pickup soon.
    What do you drive? What was your first car/truck?

    I drive a 2011 Ford F-150 and love it heart and soul... My first car was a 1968 Mustang painted metal flake gold, had the 289 and I just loved that car. Shouldn't have ever sold it...

    My first car was a 75 Mustang II. My hate for Ford began there.

    I have a 97 Toyota 4Runner with about a quarter of a million miles on it. Been a great vehicle. Bought the wife a 2008 Tacoma double cab 4x4. Also been a good truck.

    2003 Buick Lesabre for back and forth to work, 40 mile round trip is too hard on gas for the 69 ford pickup I drive just about everywhere else.

    First car was a 72 ford galaxie 500 2 door. I loved that car could get 25 of my closest friends in it in high school.:D

    Currently drive an 09 Chevy Aveo in yellow. First car was a 97 ford thunderbird with a 4.6 v8. I miss that car but I went from 14 mpg to 29 so it's lighter on the wallet

    My current car is a 2011 VW Jetta Wagon TDI.
    My current truck is a 2008 Honda Ridgeline. Actually it's my wife's. She calls it her girl truck. It is pretty impressively designed.

    My first car was a 1967 MGB.
    My first truck was a 1994 Dodge Dakota.

    2001 Ford F-350, 6-speed manual, crew cab, 4X4. Same truck Jesus would drive, but he would have a lumber rack seeing as he was a carpenter.

    First car? 1969 Ford Fairlane 500 I got for $100 in 1981. It lasted only about a year, then I got a '65 Falcon and beat the living Hell out of that.

    1992 Ford F-150, regular cab, long box, with the 4.9 liter I-6, and a 5 speed manual transmission. It just hit 212,000 today, and runs just like it did the day it left the plant in Norfolk VA. This one is my daily run about truck, and part time hauler.

    First car, I got a 1980 Ford Fiesta as a 16th birthday present from my parents, and it is because of that car that I know how to repair cars on a shoe string budget. it leaked oil, smoked like a chimney, Would foul the number 3 plug about every 50 miles, and it was built and rebuilt over the 3 years i drove it with parts from the other 2 parts cars we were given by family and friends. One of the features of that car was a floor made of fiberglass strips with no drain holes. Dad and I later added drain holes after a hunting trip when we noticed 3 inches of standing water on the floor. A few shots each from the .22s and we were good to go.

    First car I bought on my own was a 1984 Ford Crown Vic. It was a former police interceptor, and i owe the fact that I am alive to that car. I got t-boned by a drunk driver in a pick up New years Eve of 1992, and even though I was pretty messed up (Skull fracture, broken cheek and jaw, broke eye orbit, blleding on the brain, broken left arm and leg, shattered knee, broken ankle, lost half my teeth, and 6 broken ribs with a punctured lung to boot) if I had been in a smaller car i would not be sitting here typing this today. that and God must have a reason for keeping me around. maybe someday I'll get to ask him why.
