    first car was and still is a 1999 dodge grand caravan. it is a new england car so it it rusting out on me(needs a transmission pan now). only has 71k miles on it. i plan to keep it as long as i can, until the rust gets it at least. i love it even as a single male with no kids. it is purple and super practical. it hauls all my outdoor gear, camping stuff, rock climbing gear and bicycles. car is inconspicuous and gas mileage is ok.

  2. Philipp

    My first car was a 1997 VW Jetta 2.0l. It was a nice car, but certainly had some issues. Windshield defroster and A/C did not work, so it basically became unusable in Minnesota. I still miss the car, though.

  3. Doug Sonier

    My first car was a Ford tempo that thing was a heap og crap.I had a Egr problem and it would stall out at random.But a was a broke kid and couldnt fix it. I drove that thing i to thd ground.

  4. Kristin

    First car was a 1986 Mazda B2000 that burned oil so bad had to add a quart every Monday, paid $1000 for it and some kid from my highschool rearended me on the way home from school one day and his dad bought it off me for $1800 so we would not go through insurance and the kid drove it for another 2 years.

  5. Ramon paramo

    My first car was a 1979 rabbit diesel. This one started my love for VWs and that’s pretty much all I’ve ever owned. I did try out a Chevy and Nissan at one time but there’s nothing like German engineering.

  6. glennh2os

    1959 Pontiac Catalina.. Also known by the people who rode in it as the Batmobile.. Fins weren’t quite that big but the name stuck. Had power windows and an automatic transmission..which were kind of unusual for that old a car. Thing was a tank (4500 lbs if I remember right)

  7. Jacob

    My first car was a 1996 VW Golf TDI. It was my very first car and I only got to drive it once due to a fuel pump failure l. Sad to see it gone but ill be glad to buy a new VW!

  8. Richard

    My first car was a 1968 Chevelle. There was more bondo than steel on the car. The most interesting repair I had to do was to bolt the steering box back on when the bolts that held it to the frame finally rusted thru and the box fell off. Fortunately the car was not moving at the time.

  9. Seth

    My first car was a 2007 Toyota Camry. My favorite thing about it was the awesome shade of blue paint it came with. I also could hit 40 mpg on highway trips with some careful driving.

  10. CJ

    My first car was a 85 Nissan 720 regular cab pickup. I still own it (8 years and counting) and it’s under the knife right now getting a high compression engine build with mild cam and Weber 38 carb.

  11. Steve Decker

    My first car was a 1962 Chevy Impala (this was before I discovered VW). I bought it from my brother for $200. It got me through high school. Somehow, the frame developed a crack near the left front wheel. I was able to weld gusset plates on either side and drove it another year after that. Good times.

  12. Garan Wallick

    My first car was a 1964 Ford Falcon Futura (still have it!). My mom gave it to me when I was 14 and my papaw helped me get it running and driving. I drove it through high school and when I started going to the trade school for auto mechanics I built and swapped in a 302 V8 bored .060 over, Holley 4bbl, all the goodies. It was my getaway car at our wedding and I just entered it in the first annual Crown Trades and Technology car show in October. She’s just a little 4 door granny car but I love her 🙂

  13. ABurnside555

    There wasn’t much that was great about my first car. It was a 95 cavalier z24 automatic. I guess it was nice that i got it for $400 and ran it for over 4 years with almost no maintenance at all.
