Hey Tony and new friends,
My first car was a beautiful, red, VW Karman Ghia. I loved it but was a teenager and too young to appreciate what I had. I wish I had it now!


#3

Love it @BarryB - Why not get another? One of my first cars was the Miata. Had a lot of memories in that little 2 seater. My father had a lot of stories of these Karman Ghia’s, super cool cars! Thank you for sharing!

This was my first car back in '84 and that’s how old the pic is.
Was originally metallic blue and needed some body work done so my dad and I stripped it and painted it while I was back home from Germany on a course.

And believe it or not this is what my dad sprayed it with we actually had a spray gun attachment for ours.

Didn’t come out too bad considering, not that you can see it too well in the pics

I was 15 years old my 1st vehicle was a 1979 Marnie Carlo super sport. I thought I was the coolest person in the whole neighborhood until I ran it dry no oil seized the motor my father told me there is all the tools you need in that garage figure it out so I did a lot of reading and asking other people one month later she was back in running.

Nothing special…a 1981 or 82 Mercury Lynx. Got it from my folks after they drove it for five years. I guess I needed something with more power because after about a year it ran hot and cracked the block. Oops!


#10

Technically my first car was a ‘76 hinda civic that was giving to me by my cousin. That’s not the original car just used one from google.It was a manual. And at 13 I would drive around the neighborhood took it out once on the road but I think it was luck that I didn’t get into trouble being that young driving. A buddy blew the engine burning out in the icy alleys in the neighborhood. I remember I was mad as hell.

NO ITS NO THAT KIND OF STORY. i sold her the beautiful 63 chevy impala ,it was only 13 years slitely used. back then we knew everything chevy other than a vista cruser would be a classic. i sold it to her to buy a white 72 mach 1,now she ran in to the back end of another car ,her dad sold it so i wouldn’t have to look over and see it EVERY STINKEN MORNING. i need to figure how to feed back during LIVE so you can say mean kenny w. ky
