    My first car was a Sunbeam Alpine. It had no: paint, exhaust, brakes, clutch cylinder or rag top. i am still looking for one to restore. It was a lot of fun.

    Hi my first car was a Peugeot 308 1994, heater didn’t work and acceleration was terrible, I’m from uk so I’ve only ever seen pics of your car.

    My first car was a 1970 Ford Fairlane 500. This came with a 351C (Cleveland) engine and I really worked hard on that car to keep it going. Unfortunately, My FF had a serious rust problem and the back leaf springs where broke all the way thru and just the U bolts holding them in place. When I accelerated I had to hold on to the steering wheel because the two front bolts that held the seat down where rusted thru (lol). I bought the car for 425.00 bucks from a farmer in my home town. I see old tv shows now and again that show one running down the road and it brings back fond memories of my old highschool days 🙂

    Wish I still had that engine!

    For some reason when I was at a legal age to drive I didn’t bother to learn , I waited 10 years before I showed an interest in cars or driving , that means I missed out on the good old classics like you describe , shame on me .

    1974 Plymouth Duster. It was a hand me down from my mother. My dad and I replaced the 318cid with a 360cid small block and fitted it with an aftermarket cam, headers, aluminum intake, & Holley carb. I also rebuilt the front suspension with polygraphite bushings and added a front sway bar. I sold it for a 1972 Dodge Challenger, but now 25 years later, I would love to own a Duster again.

    Hi,

    Sorry I read it wrong, my eyes got to the word dodge and my brain took over with images of the charger, d’oh. I do apologise.

    My first car is the 8th gen Honda Civic. Might’ve tinkered with it a bit or you can say ‘modified’ it to my preference. Hey, it’s my own car. Haha! 👿

    Thanks,
