Do you remember when your family got their first new vehicle? What about television? VHS? Microwave? Computer? Gaming console? Do you remember much about these things and if so, share some details?

I remember when my mother got her first car. It was a green minivan. I was in preschool and my uncle came to pick me up and told me there was a surprise for me. I walk out of the school and there was my mother inside a brand new green mini van. I was a little disappointed because I thought I was going to get a piece of cake but it was a beautiful mini van.

Hello zoey7879, yes I do. Well, my father bought a second hand car. It was a cute small morris. Light blue in color. I just loved it. We had a nice party that day. Actually there was some starting problem as well, but my father wouldnt agree. He said it was the way he pressed and released the clutch. Somebody gave us a nice smiley, which I stuck on the rear windshield. I have very happy memories associated with that vehicle. We had to sell it because my father wanted a new car. I think the new car didnt prove as lucky. Almost 20 odd years later, I bought a small single bedroom apartment. I saw tears in my father's eyes. He said I am finally eating in an accommodation that is not rented. Felt really good.

I remember when we got our first microwave. It was probably in the late '70s. Daddy got us one for Christmas and it lasted a LONG time. It finally played out on me a few years ago and every microwave I've had since has played out on me. I just can't afford a really good one. The first one we got was a Litton and Litton has been out of business for a long time. I didn't know this until this one quit working on me. Kathy.
