like wiskerfish, I did not own a car until I got married. My dad gave us his '65 Chevy bel aire. By the time I got it (77) you had to add a quart of oil at every gas tank refill.

However, I had owned two motorcycles by then.

Bottom picture my first car - 66 Dodge Charger - not it but the same car
383 Magnum - How an 18 year old didn't kill himself I don't know
Some one was looking out for me.
Then me with Hair and a brand new 73 240Z
This is now. A 72 I restored. It was so much fun I had to do it again almost 50 years later

this thread reminds of my dad telling me about HIS first car ... if he were still alive he would be 102 so we are going back aways ... anyhow, him and a friend each chipped in and bought a car together (not at all unheard of back then) ... can't recall the make but we are likely talking ford ... the price ... $3.75.
the 75 cents was for the spare engine that was in the trunk.
