Show me a picture or give a description of your first car. Tell me how special it was to own your first set of wheels.

70' Camaro give or take a year. Not bad. I was the proud owner of the meanest 67' on the planet! I'll look for a photo. Is that an orb in the rear window?

Oh sweet. My boyfriend in high school taught me to drive a stick shift on his 68 mustang with a 428 cj 4 sp. I was hooked on sports cars after my first accidental burn out.

No, I had a 77 and I think a 78 Camaro. They were all great cars but the 69 was my favorite. Odd how our wedding was on June 9th. I figured he'd never forget 6/9. It's an easy date to remember

The early ones were great cars to drive but tough on rear passengers. 4 Speed console shifter and buckets didn't make it a great date car. Rear seat was like a surfboard with a bump in the middle not conducive ...n/m... Personally I liked 72' and 73' best the years I mean, not the cars. I'm sure 69' was a good year as well but it was before I had the "Green Mean" or "Mean Green". .

71 2dr maverick bought 11/18/83 in Iowa Park Tx for $625. Still have it. White with Blue Cloth/Vinyl interior. 170/3-speed column shift. AM radio with a Radio Shack FM converter with a TV speaker in the package tray. The previous owner had removed the black vinyl roof and put a high quality primer job on the roof. To this day, I can still drive to the house I bought it at. I was so proud of it. Paid for it myself with no parental help. I know now after I got my Marti Report on it, the only options it had when new was Black Vinyl Roof, WW tires, and tinted glass. It was not even ordered with a AM radio when new. Some past owner (or the dealership) must have put one in at a later date. There was no dash speaker. It sold on 08/05/71 at Kermit Ford in Kermit TX which is still in buissness at the same address they were at in 71. Their website says they have been a Ford dealer since 47! It was built 11/03/70. It was one of 14,474 2dr Mavericks built with the 170/3-speed combo that year. One of 10,578 with Black Vinyl Roof, and 11,717 painted White.
