Hello myLotters. It is a nice memory. My first car was a Chevrolet. I was a student then. So, could only buy a used car. But, I was very happy with it. It ran well, and I drove around to neighboring cities over the weekends. In fact, the car I have now is also a Chevrolet. It's a new one ofcourse ! How about you ? What was your first car ? Were you happy with it ?

My first car was a yellow Mini Cooper. Everyone used to call me Mr. Bean, but it was a great car and I have fond memories of it.

Yes, just like you, I have very fond memories of my first car, especially because that was soon after I got my driver's license. Very exciting !

My first car was a dodo brown '86 Mercury Grand Marquis. I didn't at first but I feel in love with the car. Three days after I got it this jerk ran into me at an intersection. Tore up my whole drivers side and his car took no damage whatsoever. I did love my car though. Handled so well..... I had it for about a year after that and my baby moms almost flipped it and tore it up for good. Miss my baby.....

My dad came from the country. They didn't think much about the kids driving at an early age. We drove tractors and things needed,we drove the trucks to get what was needed or to do things that the parents couldn't go do. So for him to teach me to drive at about 10 years of age or so was no big deal. It was an honor to me for him to give me the car he loved. It made it more specialto me.

I have never owned a car yet. i'll only be starting work in a few months so if I never buy myself a car it'll be in 2-3 years from now. I drive a Honda though. It's something my dad bought that I enjoy driving. the problem in my family is that no one owns any of the cars, so whatever you always drives sort of becomes assigned to you.

Yeah , a family car gives the feeling of one's own car too. And, ofcourse, sooner or later, one will have the true own car too ! Have a nice day dear friend !

My first car and only car that I've had so far was a 1997 Pontiac Bonneville. My mom bought it for me and basically paid everything on it so it was kind of handed to me. But it was also taken away when I lost my liscense for being arrested. The court took my drivers liscense away and my mom sold the car so I don't really have a car anymore.

Well, I was 22 years old when I got my first car. It was actually my last year of college about two months before graduation. It was a lovely two tone blue Buick Regal. It was not new but it was clean and in excellent condition. I miss that car.

Buick is an excellent car. Even if not new, it keeps running like new. I have driven some Buick rental cars on high ways too.

I haven't quite purchased my first car yet but I am getting close to that point. I plan on purchasing a car within two years. I will most likely be a full time employee, recent university grad working in investment banking, so I would really like to purchase a BMW. I think that would be a very nice first car as it is my favourite brand.

Oh yes ! BMW is an excellent car. It would be just wonderful to have a BMW as the first car. My best wishes to you !

My first car was a 1985 gold Chevy Celebrity. It was a 4 door sedan. I was 16 years old and had to pay for it myself and my insurance. It was a good reliable car and fit me and my friends nicely.

hello greenline the first car that i ever had, my Dad purchased for me when i was in my senior year in high school and it was a brand new Chrysler Cordoba with t-tops in it. i loved that car. needless to say, after high school, i went on to get my first job as a secretary, and on my way to work in the mornings, i would stop by the post office to check the mail and bring it to work with me. well one morning after stopping at the post office, somebody was headed down the street the wrong direction and i had a head on wreck. luckily i wasn't hurt, but it totalled my new car out. so therefore, my Dad rushed out and got me another car and my second car was a brand new Pontiac Firebird. take care and have a beautiful day today!

Hello Tn ! Oh , that was an amazing experience ! Your dad certainly must have sensed how you had felt, and so bought you a brand new car. Pontiac is a nice car too. Have a nice day too !

My first car was a Ford Galaxy 500. My grandfather sold it to me for a dollar lol. That car was sold, no plastic on that one. I guess the best part of it was my grandfather worked at the Ford Plant in Dallas, and had watched that car being built from start to finish. I now have a Chevy. But I also have the fun of driving a Mustang GT, my b/f's, but I actually drive it more than he does! lol

My first car was a 69 Chevelle Malibu. Great car. I loved that car and never should have sold it. That car could move and is worth a whole lot more now than I paid for it then. I had it about 10 years and the only thing I didn't like about it was that it was a two door which made it harder to get the babies in and out of the back seat.

That's a very good car. The car I have now is also a Chev Malibu. It's a four door, and I enjoy driving intown and on highways too.

My first car was a Chevy Nova. The only thing hot about it was the color — fire-engine red. I banged it up pretty good, but it was a good car!

My first car was a red pontiac sunbird. I can't remember the year, I think it was an '89, but it was a good car. I bought it for three hundred dollars from my brother cause he couldn't drive a stick, and I spent about six hundred getting it fixed up. It got great gas mileage, I remember that.
