On craigslist. The truck that I bought when I was 17. Called the guy and checked the vin number, it has changed hands about 4 times since I had it but its the one. If you could have your first vehicle would you buy it today?

Probably would, but mine was a 1973 Ford Galaxie 500 four door. :)
I would want it to run better than it did when I owned it though. :D

Backseat in that thing was bigger than the couch I have in my house now. :D

Funny thing is that someone bored this thing out and pretty much re did the motor. I am going to look at it this weekend.

Definately wouldn't want my first car back, it was a Hyuandai and I was glad to see that thing go. If I could find Grandpa's old Toyota pickup, I would sure like to have it though.

1966 Pontiac Catalina. Loved it!

Back some 10-12 years back I was driving through Etowah, TN and hit the brakes. Looked and sitting in a vacant house's driveway was what looked to be "my" car. Weeds grown up around it, same year, same battleship gray/blue color with rust-colored undercoat showing through. Stopped and looked her over real good.

Never did anything but look at that car as I drove past. As much as I'd have loved to have a spin in one, I knew too well that I am not mechanically inclined enough to do anything but have it towed to my driveway. One day when I drove past, it was gone. Ah well.

Personally I'd rather have my 2nd car, a '71 Mustang w 3 on the floor. Only a 250, but that was just fine by me! :)

My 73' Bronco?? Heck yes!! But it was totaled by my uncle that put it at his filling station back in 82' to sell. He had it two weeks and took it for a joyride and rolled it.
