I got my first car back in 1979.
I had a friend who was known for making bold statments, but sometimes not folowing through.
In this case, he said " When I go in the NAVY, I'll sell you my car for 100, bucks."
So, only by chance did I have 100 bucks on me at the time. I had just gotten paid.
I pulled out the cash, and gave him 100. Telling him, I would pick up the car when he was ready to go. He actually followed through on that one.
This car was nothing special, but it was big, and it ran like a top. It got me through college, and more.
Without Further ado, a link, not my pic, but an identical car.
The 1966 Chevelle 4 door station wagon!
This one has the same wheels, and is the same color as mine.
It was the party wagon!
I also sold it 5 years later for 300 bucks, so it was "an investment" LOL
BTW, if you really like cars, vote for an Automotive forum here:
And don't forget, show me your FIRST CAR!
