Just to dilute the acid, vitriol and bile of the most active threads here in the 'off topic' forum, how about a nostalgic look at your first car??
Mine was a 1961 VW beetle, cloth sunroof version. The '61 bug was the first year for the syncro first-gear transmission, the second year for the 40hp engine, but the last year for the no-gas-gauge, so it had a 'reserve fuel lever' I have a few stories about that!!
I bought the car, without an engine in 1967 [I was 15yrs old] for $50. It was VERY rusty, holes through the floor boards so you could see the ground behind the front tires as you drove it. Hole in the floorboard under the battery,, I patched them all ... sort of. The fenders were so bad I had strips of metal screwed into the body and overlapping the fender joint onto the fender where I screwed into the more solid metal.. Looked like metal bandaids.
The engine I bought at a salvage yard, from a car that had been hit in the rear, shearing off the distributor, which siezed the distributor drive shaft and the brass drive-gear on the crankshaft was stripped... The generator support was sheared off , the sheetmetal a mess... but the engine was $50, and the needed parts free for the scrounging through the salvage yard's pile of scrap engines..
So I split the engine case, replaced the brass gear on the crank, straightened the sheet metal and made a running engine... all about 9 months before I got my drivers license... talk about temptation... and my bug was so humble that only my dad would ride 'shotgun' for me with my 'learners permit'.. My mom refused after on trip... said the car was unsafe...
And she had had several VW's, she had a 250-customer paper route to pay for her late-in-life college classes.. the VW was the only vehicle that would stand up to the start and stop of a paper route.
Anyway, that's my first car, very humble... but I kept it for over a year.. then put myself through some college turning wrenches on VW's... I have owned over 20 air-cooled VW's..several Karman-Ghias, bugs one 'transporter bus.
