First car to drive on the road "legally" was a 58 Plymouth 4 door.

Favorite car I suppose is my 64 Nova SS which I owned for 30+ years

The Sapporo later evolved into the Chrysler Conquest TSI.
When I worked for Chrysler in the early 80's these where the best trouble free cars you could buy with an American nameplate.
I also had a 1980 Dodge D-50, Mitsubishi built with the Dodge badge, Same engine as the Sapporo, however this was a real piece of junk. I had to rebuild the engine at 50K, when I opened it up 2 of the pistons had the rings alligned instead of staggered.

1st car I drove legally - My Dads 1956 Nash Ambassador - dark blue, light blue, white top with a continental kit. Yeah, I know, but did I mention that it had reclining seats?

My favorite? That's a tough one. Would have to be a toss-up between my '63 Pontiac Tempest, 326 cu. in. High Output (vary rare option) 3 speed on the floor. A real sleeper! My '66 Corvair Corsa 4 speed/with all the right options, my 396/350HP, 4 spd. Chevy Nova, my '88 5.0 5 speed Mustang LX, w/3:73 rear.

I'll also add my least favorite - my '66 Buick Skylark, 340 cu. in, 4 barrel,
3 on the tree. Nothing but troubles. Kept it only for a few months

I learned to drive on a Ford tractor and the first car was a 1937 Buick Special. Took over my Dad's 1930 Chev coupe and my really first car a 1940 Olsmobile club coupe. After WWII, cars were tough to get. We won't talk about the ones I drove without a license.

My first ride was a 1964 1/2 ton Chevy Pickup truck with a 230 ci six cylinder and "three on the tree". I used to carry a hammer to bang the shift linkage when it got hung up between first and second gear during my "power shifts".

Yep. I had the 390HP version of that engine in a 16' boat when I was a younger man. Quite a ride.

#1, 1956 Chevrolet belair 4dr, hardtop.
#2, 1965 Oldsmobile 442, 2dr, hardtop. Oddly, the 442 stands for 4 speed trans., 4 barrel carb, 2(dual) exhaust; but mine was an automatic transmission model.

Humm, Perhaps a new thread is in order to ask what was your first boat and which one was your fav.

When I was younger I had the ride of my life in my 16' Hondo flat bottom pro built 402 BB Chevy Casale v-drive and adjustable cav plates weeeeee!!!!!

First legally was dad's 73 Buick, took road test in that monster.

Favorite was my 69 Camaro SS 396/375hp Turbohydramatic 400, 393 rear end, headers, roller cam & rockers... you get the picture. Passed everything but a gas station.

I have to admit that the goofy little Tracker we have for a toad is kinda fun to drive. Top comes off and the only stick I have driven in a few years.
