we have our own car before, the product of our sweat. but since that financial matters are not that stable, my husband and I decided to have it sold. i didn't have regrets though for i know that i can buy another one in due time. im not losing my hope.

I bought a used Honda accord and ran the wheels off the thing. I paid for it myself and even after I wrecked the thing I drove it dented and wobbly. I was 18 when I bought and had been saving up a long, long time. I ran the wheels off my parents truck before then. I was also afraid of the driving test to get a license so I didn't do that until I was 18 either. I just drove illegally for years.

My first car was a Vega. No, I didn't pay for it. Daddy got it for me for Christmas in 1973. I was 21. Actually, it holds a lot of bad memories, lol. I had more problems with that car. I almost had a nervous breakdown over it. There's no telling how many breakdowns I had with that thing. It to where it was scary. I had a boyfriend that had a vega that same year. He had a lot of problems with his. He didn't seem to mind, though, because he loved working on cars. I ended up trading it off for a camaro in 1977. It turned out that vegas were no good, anyway, and they quit making them after all. they were cute cars, though. I was the first one in my family to own a small car. Kathy.

I'm a girl and for a girl, my first car was actually pretty Hot! I bought a 1966 mustang! It was dark green and had mag wheels (with fat tires on the back) and dual exhausts. I loved that car. I bought it with my own money ($900) when I was 18. The boys wanted to race me! My dad always told me "Never let them know exactly how fast you can go!" It kept them wondering and it also kept me from doing anything too crazy! I loved that car! I washed it in the front yard every week and armor-alled the tires! Eventually I needed something more reliable in the winter (it wasn't very good in the snow) and I sold it. But it makes for a great conversation starter!

It was definitely used. A previous owner was a teenaged boy and he was the one to "soup" it up. It was fun!
