What Was Your First Car?
My first car was a monster of a car. It was a 1968 blue Oldsmobile 442, the same car that is pictured to the left. I purchased it in 1976 for $400. I was a junior in college and tired of riding my bike to work in below zero weather. Needless to say it was a junk car and really laid down a smoke screen, but I loved it. It also averaged about 10 miles to a gallon of gas but back then gas was only 25 cents a gallon.
What was your first car? Was it cool, a junker, or something in between? Did you purchase it with your hard earned cash or was it is a gift from a wealthy aunt who soon became your favorite aunt? Tell us about it. The color, year, make and the good and bad times that were had!
