What Was Your First Car

My first car was a Ford Tempo. Crazy crappy car! This thing had no radio, the window on the passenger side wouldn't roll down and the driver's side door wouldn't open! So I had to get in and out Duke's of Hazzard style. So since it didn't have a radio by the time I got anywhere I was crying because the only song I knew all the words too was Amazing Grace! Eventually the car caught on fire. Not the whole car but some important parts under the hood. So I sang Amazing Grace one last time and moved on to a different crappy car!

What was your first car?

I bought a Volkswagen Golf Gti Mk1 when I was 17 and had just passed my test. I think it was about 8 years old when I bought it and my dad really wanted me to buy something else, something newer. The thing was I really wanted it. It cost me £650 and lasted for about six years and cost me very little in repairs and maintenance.

I put a large pair of speakers in the boot of the car, the sort of things that normal people have in their living room, they just about filled the boot. The sound was awesome and I loved that car.

Unfortunately, when I moved to Oxford about six years after buying the car I was involved in an accident and the insurance company wrote off the car. The insurance company only gave me £200 for the car.

I decided to go for a company car after that as it made life easier at the time. I still remember my first car with fond memories, it was great fun to drive and was very cool.

I don't have a car yet. When I learn to drive, I'll get and Audi A4 or a CLK convertible... I know, I'm dreaming, right?

I got an AMC Pacer for $100. Just like this...

It was blue with the big bubble windows. There were holes in the floorboards and you could see the road whiz by under your feet while you drove. It also didn't start, ever, so I carried jumper cables around with me and had to beg strangers for a jump. Those were the days... :)

I am 27 and never owned a car. I didn't drive in high school. Then I went to college in Manhattan and now I'm in Boston; never really needed to drive in these cities. I have a license but have never driven without my dad spotting me in the passenger seat. So I'm scared of driving.

My first car was a Ford Tempo too!!! It was fire-engine red and used, but not in bad shape. It stayed with me through Soph, Junior and Senior years of college and it served me quite well. Then at graduation, I upgraded to my Ford Focus and I never looked back. :-)
