    What was the first car you ever drove? For me it was a 1972 swinger, what was yours?

                1953 Ford two door station wagon. 6 cyl. with three on the tree. I was thirteen and paid 12 bucks for it. It made a great field car, and my dad got really angry with me when he found a circle track in his hay field. :lol:

                Some Ford guys would love to have that now I suppose, but it had a little rust in the rear quarters, so it finally went to the junk yard. Sure had fun with it though.

                  1973 Plymouth Scamp. The only thing I remember is it was brown. Knowing my dad, it was a 318. Drove it from the driveway through the yard around to the opposite side of the house to wash it.

                      Granddad's 1963 Buick LeSabre conv. around a big shopping center parking lot that was closed on Sunday's. I was 10 yrs old, 1969.

                      First car i drove on the street in 1973 was a 71' 318 Scamp at 14. My 18 yr old neighbor chick had me drive her around while she drank beer in her parents car. I eventually bought that car in the late 70's and used it for a daily driver for about 6 mos. Sold it and made a couple hundred to a co worker.

                          Does a go cart count?

                          I can't say for sure which one was first, but it would be one of the following:

                          First car I drove, but not on the highway, was a 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk when I was 11 years old. Looked exactly like the one I own today.

                          First car I drove on the road, with a real (albeit restricted) driver's license was this 1962 Dodge Polara 500 convertible, the day after I turned 14. Still had the 361 four barrel at the time, had a 440 in it when this pic was taken in 1968.

                              I was 14. Car was a 76 Fury or Coronet taxi cab. Dad was the fleet mechanic for a local cab company. When I'd hang out at the shop, I'd move them in and out of the service bays.

                                Drove a lot of tractors, but first car was a '47 Plymouth. Field car back on the farm- wood blocks wired (in the days before duct tape) to the pedals, couple of folded horse blankets stacked on the seat so I could see over the dash. Thing I remember most is that steering wheel was BIG...
                                Second car(?) I drove was a Diamond T grain truck. Even bigger steering wheel!
                                Was about 9 or 10 I think- didn't get on the road until I was about 14 and got my farm license.

                                      '62 Chevy "Carryall" C10 with 250 in. six and three-on-the-tree. I'd been driving tractors for a while before that, and knew how to shift a non-synchro box on the road without grinding, so the family truckster was no problem :)
