What was the first vehicle you owned?

Mine was a Mini 1275E, metallic blue. It gave me a bit of trouble with the needle & seat periodically, apart from that a really great little car. One rainy day a guy turned in front of me...I was not injured but the car was a write-off. Looked like this :D

One just like this. 175k miles. Ran like a top. But I sure didn’t like it. A LWB when you’re in high school isn’t near as cool as it is when you grow up and start working out of it!

Mine was a '52 Ford pick up. On its second or third motor. Had a Mercury flat head 8. It was ugly lime green and someone had put Mallard duck decals on both doors. A half dollar size hole in the wind shield low down in front of the steering wheel. A chick magnet it wasn't.

I did have one chick magnet. I had a 69 GTO, wish I still did.
Totaled it on a cow in 1973 one dark night. I might should have said cows as it was a five car pile up. Looked like an audition for a Dukes of Hazard show.
