I had a Honda Odyssey mini van, its an old rust bucket but my mother uses it now to get to work. Many memories in that car, lots of road trips, we bought it after my family moved from California to Massachusetts 14 years ago.

My first car was a Pontiac T1000 '83. It was like A Chevette with less prestige.

Your first ride's all suck (compared to mine!). I got my dad's hand-me-down 1969 Plymouth Fury II. It was so big, you could map it on a 1:10,000 scale topo. To save money, he ordered it with 'Armstrong' steering...

Mine was a '77 Volkswagen microbus. Fun but wasn't very warm during those Chicago winters.

1974 Toyota Corona. Ugly green, no reverse. Made a nice profit on this car after owning for a few months!

My first 'hoopdee' was a 1970 "DiamondBlue" VW Beetle. This car was the greatest ever!. At 6'3", I had more room then any other car owned. It was reliable,just as CHEFSKNIVESTOGO....

If "first car" must include ownership, i have just purchased it. At the ripe age of 43... It is a VW Polo, smaller than the smallest VW sold in the States. But as the price of gas is rapidly approaching $8.50 / gallon gasgusslers are really not an option in Sweden anymore.
