Back from it’s holiday hiatus, the question of the week asks you to reminisce about your first car.
What you loved about it or hated about it. Did you scrape by and save up for it yourself or were your parents able to help you to get it and how many speeding tickets you got.
Here’s what our crew had to say:
My first car was a green 1995 Mercury Sable, and while I loved the sunroof and leather seats, it would’ve been nice to have a CD player in it since I didn’t get it until 2007! It was a gift from my aunt, and I still have something of a Gilmore Girls relationship with her in that we have lunch regularly as my way of repaying her personally. As for tickets, to date, I have never been ticketed for anything, believe it or not! Now, to find some wood on which to knock…
My first car was a 1987 Pontiac Fiero. I loved it….red two seater with the engine in the back. I bought it two months before my 16th birthday. All I could do was stare at it and wash it until I actually got my license. It was torture!!
My first car was a Plymouth Belvedere 4 door. It had a powerful 318 motor. I paid $150 for it & it started up the day I bought it from a farmer in Perryville. I painted the car up in 1989 with band logos to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of 1969. I liked the hippy theme 🙂 I have had 2 speeding tickets in my lifetime. It has been since the 90s.
My very first car I drove was a Chevy Corsica which my mom purchased for me after I graduated high school to use at college. However, the very first car I purchased myself was a Ford Ranger. Rear wheel drive and green! Driving that thing to work in the middle of winter in Minnesota was a challenge, but it was a good little pickup. It was the vehicle that I was driving when I was pulled over for “accelerating to get through a yellow light.” Not speeding, not running a red light…but I “accelerated.” This was in Minnesota and in the middle of winter…the roads were icy and instead of slamming on my brakes and sliding through the intersection, I chose to speed up slightly. Cop was right behind me….and he probably ran the red light to get to me. Just sayin’.
2008 Pontiac Grand Prix; white with heavily tinted windows, black interior with red detail. The engine purred when it started, it accelerated smooth as silk and high speeds felt a little too comfortable.
The car was given to me by my parents for my 16th birthday. Three months later I got my first speeding ticket. 75 in a 55…hence the line about smooth acceleration. I’m not that spoiled though, my first job at Dairy Queen immediately followed that speeding ticket. Good thing I loved my car, because I was driving it to work five days a week to pay back my debts.

She was a 1989 white Mustang coupe. Loved that car dearly as it was the one place that was mine and only mine! My aunt helped me secure the loan wile I was working for her and my uncle at Estes Deli & BBQ in Jackson when I was 17.
There were minor things about my car that I would have liked to be different. I would have loved to have had a GT hatchback, but it was mine and I loved it. I roamed many a road listening to my cassettes or CD via the personal CD player and cassette adapter. Tom Petty, The Beatles, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Green Day, Hendrix, and so many others. So many great memories in that car with my friends.
