My first car was a 1964 Plymouth Belvedere station wagon with push button transmission. Paid $100 for it in 1970. Drove the wheels off of it and sold it for $40 still running.
No picture.

I was an English sports car enthusiast in my mid 20's.
You could but them pretty cheap back then .
Here are two of them I sold in 1979. Made good money on both of them.
1961 Austin Healey 3000 probably worth north of $50,000 now.
1964 Jaguar XKE probably worth north of $75,000 now.

We all had stuff we wish we had back.

My first car was a 1956 Ford, my second car was a 1956 Ford, Then I moved up to a 1960 Ford convertible, 1967 Fairlane sports coupe, then An AMC Gremlin, another 1956 Ford, Then a 1960 Ford Galaxy sedan, followed by a 197 something Fairmont. Followed by three Ford Ramgers the last of which I still have(2010),.I regret selling all of them except the Gremlin!But I did not have room to store them until I had time to fix whatever was wrong at the moment.

Let's see how bad my memory is. My first car was a '57 Ford. Then I went into the Air Force. On the day after I got out I got a brand new '69 Camaro Then I got a '71 Plymouth Sattelite; then got married and got a '72 Olds Cutlass, then a new '74 Chevy Pickup, then a '76 Chevy pickup, then a '77 Ford F-150, then a '78 Ranchero that I loved, then a '80 Pinto that I had for 1 day and it was totaled, then I got something I don't remember, then an '87 Dakota then a '98 F-150 that I'm still driving with 219,000 miles on it. I also have a 2005 Escape. Now I want a new F-150!
