I stole this idea from another forum and thought might try it here to see if any else has their first car. Here is my story on my first car.
I know I do not post on very much but I thought I would add to this thread. The car sold new at my local Chevy dealer to a guy here in town in early 1970 (late build 69). His neighbor bought it from him in '72 and she drove it until 1978 when she pulled out in front of someone and was t-boned.. The car sat until my father was talking to a guy and he was telling him about a '79 Camaro that might be for sale. We didnt think much about it but I thought that might be an OK first car. When my father talked to the guy again; he said did I say 79?? I meant 69... At that point, I was in. We went to look at it in Nov of 1989 and brought it home. After several hours on a frame machine, body work the car was repainted in Rallye Green (I hated Frost Green at the time; wish I wouldnt have been so ignorant at the time). Once the car was finished and road worthy we took it back to Mrs. Brockett (2nd owner) for her to see the car could be fixed (when she wrecked the car the insurance totaled the car and she just bought it back thinking she might get it fixed one day). When we pulled up she came out and first things out of her mouth were; "I see you put one of those "humps" on the hood.. And you added that "flip" on the trunk.." Needless to say, she was happy to see the car again on the road. When I was a senior in high school I pulled the 307, powerglide & 10 bolt out and slide in a mild built 350, Muncie M20 & a 12 Bolt with 3.55 gears. I still have the car and once I finish my other projects it will return as a LS turbo powered drag radial car one of these days.
Yes I thought I was sooo cool with my new car..
