First car I ever drove eh?

1965 Ford Mustang.

Was my friend's car, I was 15, he was 16, I drove it (at speeds unmentioned) up and down his street for a while. Fun fun.

My first car, though was a 95 Cadillac Sedan Deville, which I still have.

My first car
1976 Buick Skyhawk

pros
V-6...Very fast

cons
none that I can think of

mods and fixes history
In-tank fuel pump died and I could not find a replacement. Hard wired a universal fuel pump directly behind the carb and ran the power to a toggle switch below the steering column (doubled as anti-theft device)

Current Status
Barely made it to the junk yard where I parked it and walked home (purchased my second car later that day)

A tour bus driver "didnt see me" and sideswiped me without signalling, which spun my car 180 degrees across three lanes of trafic, hitting a divider and rolling twice down an embankment. Needless to say the car was totalled, though i kept the engine, and euro bumpers so i can rebuild my baby.

1969 Firebird H.O.

350 ci / 325 hp
4 speed
posi
speedo went to 160

It was very fast

Sold it to my bro when he got out of the Navy, the $1000 a year insurance was hard to pay. I had no tickets, no accidents, it was just that much for full coverage on a hot car like that around 71 when your 16.

And here is what it looks like now. It's a lot nicer car than I ever could have afforded had I bought a new one or even a used one.
