Not sure if someone has already done this.

Just wanted to know what your first car was/is?

Mine is a 1986 Buick Regal with a 307 and the rare double neutral transmission option.

Just for kicks what was/is your first Mustang?

Mine is a 1973 Mach 1 Mustang with a 351C.

Thanks for looking

First car: '77 Nova 4 door. 250 straight six. Car was indestructible, but not cool.

First Mustang - '73 Mach 1, bought in '88. Wrecked it 6 months later; bought another with a blown motor and transferred over the motor and interior. Saved all the parts I could.

In about 2002 or 3 the strut rod pulled out of the brace (rust) so I found a stripped body shell that a guy had started and given up on, and transferred all my parts again.

My first one was an '82 Mustang GL Hatchback. I loved that car, but was bitten by the 4x4 bug after returning home from Izmir, Turkey. I'll always have a soft spot for the 'Four-Eyed Fox Bodies.' I wish I could justify an '83-86 GT hatch or 'vert... but I think I'll be OK with my '71.

My first car was a 1964 Pontiac Bonneville, a real tank but fast!

My first Mustang was a well optioned 70 Mustang Sportsroof. Still got the window sticker if someone has the car!

1989 Honda civic with a Honda matic transmission. No clutch but you had to go through the gears. That was my then girlfriends car. My actual first car was an accord can't remember the year somewhere in the ninety's. Not that it maters hahaha. My first cool vehicle was an 89 dodge ram van. We used it to tour with the band all through eastern Canada. My drummer is waiting for us to sober up so we can go to the next gig hahaha.

MG's are fun cars. I had a 69 MGB with the electric overdrive that worked in both 3rd and 4th gear. It was almost like having a six speed!

I still have a 1960 MGA that I bought in about 1975? (I need to go look at the title). It's a failed restoration for me that I quite on back in the late 70's, but I have tons of new parts for it and may try it again.

It wasn't my first Mustang, but the 73 Convertible that I still have I bought in 1974 when I was 20 years old. So 37 years later I still have it! So hang on to yours if you can!

1st Mustang 19641/2 289 coupe which succumbed to a wreck. Then 67 390 coupe which was traded for a 428CJ 4 speed sportsroof on my Honeymoon in July 1972(still married to the same person). That car is still in the family as my son now has it. First 71 was also a sportsroof, 351 C, FMX, A/C, FM stereo, manual steering and manual brakes. That one stayed in the family from 1972 to 1996. Bought it used from a Chevy dealer who thought it was a 70!:angel:

Depending on the definition of "first"...

- First 4 wheeled potentially streetable vehicle purchased - 1936 Chevy low cab pickup. Bought it with newspaper route and grass cutting money @ 13-14 years old. Never saw the light of day.

- First driveable, street legal vehicle - 1979 Jeep CJ5 that Dad built from several totals (1981)

- First ultrabitchin' Ford that I really, *really* want back - 1973 Grand Torino Sport fastback (1982)

- First Mustang - my '90 7-Up car that I still have (1996 I think)

Hang on to that Mustang if you can, man. Old cars are harder to replace than any old girlfriend will be... :)
