First car you owned

Who is not embarrased to admit the first car they bought new or just plain owned outright.

I will start.

(no laughing).

First car I bought 1986 Yugo. Dealer demo. It had almost 7K miles on it..

Totaled it 5 months after I bought it.. ran into a shopping cart in the mall..

Seriously totaled it in head on collision (it's a miracle I am still here). I had seat belt pain across my chest for a month... I walked away.

...it must have been a shopping cart from Lowes or Home Depot. They are rather sturdy...

Wow!, how fast was that shopping cart going?

My first car was a 1978 Plymouth Sapporo (purchased new) with the 2.6 liter engine and 5spd. Great car. Sapporo was built by Mitsubishi and imported by Plymouth.

I've never been a first owner of a car until the Pacifica Hybrid, motorcycles are a different story.

But my first car was a 1979 Honda Civic, then a 1981 280ZX turbo with a 1982 toyota Shortbed pickup..

I had the knack for fixing vehicles so it was never worth my while to own new.

Used 1980 Mazda GLC. Had so many issues in the 3 years that I owned it (averaged over $1K/yr) that my next car was brand-new.

1975 Plymouth Valiant
1989 Plymouth Voyager
2005 Chrysler T&C

My first car was a 1966 Porsche 912 5 speed I bought in 1969.
I had just gotten back from Vietnam and spent nearly all my combat pay on it.
Drove it cross-country NY to Calif - I left NY at daybreak, by sundown I was in St Louis, Missouri. Granted, it was summer (long days),
but snapped the crankshaft 6 miles West of Gallup, New Mexico (I was doing 115 at the time).
Had it towed East to Albuquerque and had engine rebuilt, then drove it to Marine Corp base 29 Palms, Calif.
West of the Mississippi I got a ticket in nearly every state - that I had my Marine uniform hanging in the back meant nothing - it was all about revenue.
In the cop's defense, they couldn't help themselves - a red Porsche with NY plates in Oklahoma made them drool. (lot of droolers there).
After rebuild I drove it to Los Angeles to see a 'Nam buddy, and it was stolen.
All my cars have been downhill since that first one.

1st car was a 1955 Chevrolet convertible, 265 cu.inch V8, dual exhaust. Pretty sure I paid less than $300. Bought in 1963.
Sure wish I still had that car today.
