Hey, we didn't drive current model cars. My first car was 10 years old. But, it was cool. Torpedo shape or jet back '49 Chevy - 2 dr. Lowered in the back, leaded, candy apple red and previous owner had flipped the gear shift over so it had a left hand shift. Boy could you speed shift into second!! And, oh yeh -- dual straight pipes.

First car was a `53 Plymouth dad gave to me. Raised, lowered, raised, lowered, depending on the fad at the time. Put dual ones on the 6 banger. Whoossshhh... Then a `54 Ford 2dr. 239 cu.in. Put one too many fours on it. Rattle can primer black. Bought for $75... sold for $100. `57 Chevy that my brother sold out from under me when I was in the Army. Claimed he only got $450 for it, but I know he got more.

I remember them all. My first car was a 50 Ford Custom 2 dr With a flathead V-8, three on the tree, with an overdrive. Bullnosed hood ,twin spotlights that worked . Tuck and roll interior. Beauty rings and baby moon hubcaps. I wish I had that car now.

Those were the days alright! My first car was a 54 Meteor 2 dr coupe, 255 flathead dual exhausts. Bought it from my dad in 64. Meteor was a Canadian Ford.

It's funny, we weren't worried about tires back then or fuel mileage. The main thing was being kool!

I had to get the rescue squad to revive me. I was drowned nearly to death in nostalgia! That's mega cool!

A bit before my time as well. My first car was a 51 Chevy 4 door. Next was a 58 Studebaker 2 door hard top. Now that had tail fins.

I almost bought a 54 Studebaker until I was told they burn oil sooner than other makes.

Great blast from the past!!!!!!,,,,,,,,,,, first car was a 56 Dodge Custom Royal, 315 Red Ram and dual exhaust. Paid $100. for it and it was really road worthy. Try and buy something decent for $1000. today.
Cars today have no class, no individuality, they're all drones of one another.
My 2nd car was a 68 Old 442 wish I still had that one!

No longer can you look at a door handle, tail light, or strip of chrome and identify make, model and year.

We had a '65 Buick Gran Sport with a 445 Wildcat engine. Now that car could fly! Another favorite was a '63 Pontiac Grand Prix 421 w/Tri-Power. Would love to have either one of these cars again! Gas prices be da...uh, who cares about gas prices?

As I read through here, I keep thinking of the Stattler Bros. song, Ah do you remember these.
