    The first car I drove at 17 was my dad's Morris Minor Traveller:


    Which was somewhat embarrassing... but my first car, also at 17, was a bright yellow TR3A with red leather... in a terrible state... but it was mine... until something blew and it became a permanent fixture on my parent's drive for a few years...


    Neither of these pictures is mine...

    Thanks... too many stories to tell, most of them self-incriminating.

    I can say that the ride and noise were horrible on the freeway. Around town and off road, it was a blast!

    Talked my parents into the 1969 GTO because it braked, handled and accelerated well. (notice the ranking of priorities).

    Very nice of them to drive 2 cars so I could be "cool" at graduation.

    Cool thread!! ibmiked, love the 2002!!!

    In 1977, I was 15 and had a license. I drove my Dad's '77 Bronco, and still have it. Matter of fact I have three small Broncos now with another in the works. I am not a hoarder... A collector is a better term.

    I bought my almost-worn out 1965 Mustang at age 16:

    My high school friend took this picture but has sadly passed away. This car was a 3-speed on the floor with a V-8 4-barrel.

    I later raced a 1965 Mustang to a HSR Championship in 2010:

    My good friend’s dad had a similar car also with the 440. Mikey, the son, used to pile us in the car and head down 280 in Cali and let us watch the gas gauge move towards “E” as he passed through 90 mph. You could actually see the gas gauge needle move. 😯

    I drove the family 57 Ford Station Wagon. It was our only car. It is best not to post a picture as it would probably offend a number of people.
