...was my first car, and I got my license in 1975. About 3 years later, just before I got a new car, the Beetle was kept running with a rubber band on the carburetor. In that condition, me and 3 of my friends used it to travel to New Orleans for a Stones concert. On the way back, the fanbelt broke and I had one of the most ingenious ideas I've ever had. One of the passengers was a girl, and I had her remove her pantyhose. I cut off one leg and tied it round the flywheel and alternator. It worked, and got us as far as McComb where we stopped and got a proper fanbelt.W.W.E.D.?
it might be a 250 im not sure, cause i havent seen it yet my dad just told me bout it over the phone. i think its in pretty good condition though cause i saw some pics of it. but my dad is gonna take it to a mechanic to make sure its in good condition since its a 20 somethin year old car. but for a first car i think its pretty good!
...was a 1961 Ford Thunderbird with bucket seats, power windows and a 390 cubic inch engine with four-barrel carb that got 9 miles to the gallon. Gas was 24.9 cents/gallon in 1969 - milk was 99 cents/gallon.
My current car is a 1997 BMW 528i with 168,000 miles. Bought it new, should be ready for another one in 5 to 10 years. You get a free loaner during repairs if you bought it new from the dealer, it's never broken down and left me stranded, it's been a great deal.
My first car was a 1950 Chevy, six cylinder coupe. Shift linkage was a little worn. Every once in awhile they would pop out of the socket and you would have to stop, pop the hood and reassemble the linkage.Aslan is not a Tame Lion
My first car, in about 1966, was a 1958 Mercury that came to me with fender skirts, four outside rear-view mirrors, and three swept-back antennas. $200 for that baby, too. It used a quart of oil and a quart of ATF every week, no matter how much I drove it.
