    This was my first ride. A 1969 Grand Prix Model J. 428 high output 4 barrel carb putting out just under 400 HP. Mine was ugly. I think the guy who owned it before spray painted it silver...but the engine was solid and roared and put you in the back seat like no other I've driven.!!!

    My First was a 72 GP. My dad actually bought it. His only "sports car". I totaled it 2 years into my driving career, but boy did we have fun.

    Yep. He was played for the Marshall team (when they were still div 1-AA) that beat Northern Iowa (where I went to school) in the 1996 semi-finals on their way to a national championship.

    My first car (but in maroon):

    Did it have the push-buttons for the automatic transmission?

I was really good with a rivet gun, ballpeen hammer, bondo, and a paint sprayer. 3-on-the-tree transmission. Bucket seats out of an old Volvo. Under dash cassette player with bookshelf speakers in the back. CB radio. My handle was "Power Hitter" which referred to something you'd buy in head shop.

    Ah the Maverick...

    Surpassed only by the infamous Pinto in the Ford pantheon of total crap. I at one time owned a Mustang II, a fine example of what happens to a muscle car after it has been eviscerated by corporate headquarters.

    Definitely a blonde moment.

    My first car. Some odd automobile website calls it "classic." It would be more accurate to categorize it as POS.



    I redeemed myself with my second car.
