What was your first Vehicle??

I have been thinking back on all my cars I have had...

I'm 25 I learned how to drive at 15 in my dad’s 71 F100 A beast on 31s..

I learned how to drive Stick at 16 on my uncles 68 Chevy pickup (Manual EVERYTHING) I had to jump on the clutch and brakes to get it to stop (butt off the seat to put all my weight in it)



I have had 24 vehicles since the age of 15 (Dad worked for the city and was able to get vehicles from the auction cheap) we would get em cheap put a little bit of money and work then sell for the profit!

I started working when I was 14 and saving money for my first vehicle. When I was 16 I got my licenses and bought a 94 Ford Tempo 2.3 4cyl 5speed for $2300. Beat it to death!




My Vehicle list:
94 Ford Tempo
93 Ford Taurus SHO
85 Mercury Cougar 5.0
93 Ford thunderbird
91 Ford F150 straight six
93 Chevy Beretta
92 Ford Probe GT 2.2L Turbo
87 Ford Escort
97 Ford Ranger 4.0 v6
95 Ford Aspire
95 Ford Explorer
94 Chevy Geo Metro 3 cyl
01 Ford F150 4.6L V8
00 Ford Mustang 3.8L V6
02 Ford Mustang GT 4.6L V8
87 Ford Ranger 2.3L 4 cyl
02 Ford Mustang 3.8L V6
02 Ford Escort
10 Chevy HHR
88 Ford Bronco 5.8L V8

Current:
04 Ford F-150 5.4L V8 - Current workhorse




91 Ford Bronco 5.8L V8 - Current wheeler/Toy



2011 Ford Mustang 3.7L V6 - Current DD/Toy



2013 Chrysler Town and Country 3.6L V6 - Wife's current vehicle



So tell us your first vehicle, what you learned to drive with, and your list!

Learned to drive in a 92 Ford E-150...big ol' cargo van. Also learned some on my Bronco, 10 years ago when my dad owned it.

First time I drove a stick was in a 1994 Saab 9000 Aero Turbo. Then I picked up my actual first vehicle, which was a 88 S-10 Blazer 5 speed.

1996 Eddie Bauer. Sold June 2013. Bought back September 2018.

I bought the 77 in my sig when I was 15...of course it was a lot more rough then though. Now I'm 25 and I've owned 25 different dentsides (I liked finding fielded/weeded trucks, pick them up cheap, get them good and flip for profit), 5 different Broncos and a handful of different commuter cars.

My first was a 1970 dune buggy, 4 spd, bright orange fiberglass body, canvas top, and the best part...a 4 cyl Porsche motor with dual carbs. Learned to drive stick with it around the yard before I got my license. A lot of fun, but also a major cop magnet. Sold it after 1 year of having my license because of that, just too much of a pain in the ass even when driving like a model citizen most of the time.

'75 Gran Torino - Rebuilt the engine & tranny, had it on the road 10 days when some bimbo tried to park her '68 buick electra in the trunk. She nearly succeeded.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy shit what a ride!"

First learned to drive on my pops 84 caprice. I loved that thing. Plus it was almost top of the line in its time. Power everything, plush (velour) seats. I loved driving it when I could. My first vehicle was an 1990 dodge spirit, from there it was all down hill.

90' dodge spirit - Accident
89' Mercury cougar - Stolen
94 Taurus - Crack in the block
98 Explorer - Tree offroading @ 45 mph
04 malibu -(almost brand new, this was early 07) Blew motor up after 10k miles (45k on clock)
02 Dodge Stratus -(my current DD) - Still running @ 103k miles, on its 3rd transmission
88 Cutlass supreme - Blew up the trans
94 Honda prelude - Totaled by a pick up. Truck was in my backseat.
88 Bronco - Blown up trans, broken hanger, body off sitting in my grandmothers garage
79 F250 - Sitting at my place of employment needs wiring
03 Civic - Really my girls car (my money though), but a DD for both of us most often

I think I'm forgetting one but that's it. I can't seem to keep cars in one piece.

89 Eddie Bauer - 6" RC Lift, 35" KO's, 302/c6 swap, Ford 9"
79 F250 Ranger Lariat - 9" Lift, 40" Ground Hawgs, 400/435/205, D60/D70 LOCKED

My first vehicle was a red moped sold by Montgomery Ward. I had it when I was 14. My first car was a 1981 oldmobile Omega. Great car till my sis totaled it. Ive been through so many vehicles, i dont want to take the time to list them. Ill get depressed. Especially when I start thinking of my 1991 Dodge Stealth.

I currently drive a 1994 Ford Bronco XLT and a 2006 Scion XB.
