First car I owned and Wish I still had was my 1987 Olds 98 Regency Brougham 2 Door Coupe! Man what a car, damned car broke my heart when the timing chain broke and pretty much killed the entire valve train. Sad sad day that was.
 
I did really lie my 92 Buick Park Ave and would get another one.
My 2000 Ultra is a hell of a car too.
 
Hey Stan, I would love a 72 Riviera as well Boat tails are sweeeeet rides!

My first car was a 1966 Plymouth Fury II Station Wagon!! tan with tan interior poly 318 a/c that never worked. Had a lot of fun learning about cars and cruising in that one!!!
 
One day at school some smart-ass said. "Hey Arlen, nice STATION WAGON!!!" I said "Oh yeah, where's YOUR CAR!?!?!?!?" He hung his head and walked away while I fired up my Wagon and DROVE away!!!!
 
Cars I wish I still had is a tie 1970 Duster 318 ran so smooth that the only way you could tell it was running is the fan was going around.(suffered frame damage and was scrapped)

The first car was a rotted out 76 Olds Omega 260 V8, 200 metric trans and a posi rear-engine did not have enough torgue to spin both rear wheels even going around a bend on wet pavement-got the car for free from my aunt-she told me she was either going to give me her car or $2,000 bucks- I wish she gave me the $2,000 bucks-the car nickled and dimed me to death including all the body wotk I did just to get it painted.
 2nd worst car 84 Chrysler Lazer XE turbo-one electronc problem after another-got rid of it 8 months after I bought it, good thing was I made $500 bucks on it when I sold it.
 
 Car I owned the longest hands down the Fury-I bought it in 1995-still not running  or on the road YET
 
The most fun- I have  2
1) the 79 Cordoba(picked up many chicks in that car)
2) my 68 Barracuda coupe-kicked any cars ass(as long as it was in a straight line)
 
 Cheapest car I bought that would not die-81 Dodge Diplomat Salon /6 auto, faded silver-gray paint-Narc car written all over it
 
 best all around beat ride 78 Fury (B-body)
 
  1st new car I bought-2000 Chrysler Town and Country listed for $30,000-chrysler employee discount minus all incentives $26,000
 
Favorite car to drive as of now 99 Dodge Intrepid ES-runs great-handles great-sounds great now that the new dual exhaust is on the car-just needs paint-and the best thing of all-NO PAYMENTS SHE IS NOW ALL MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First car i ever owned was a 49' Chev w/straight 6 and 3ontree that me and a friend bought for $40!. We used to drive it in the fields and occasionally on the dirt roads! Never registered it,but it was great for a 14yr. old kid to rip the fields up with!. 1st registered car was a 31' Ford 5 window w/ 6" chopped top,as it was a project me and my buddy started when we were 15 yrs. old and finnished when 16!. First car i owned out right when i was 17 was a 65' K-code 4-spd Mustang.

My first car was essentially a "field car" as well.  However there were a lot of dirt township roads close by too     That '64 Land Rover eventually became a restoration project as I matured, draining my savings account and eating most of my weekly wages in the late '80s.  When I started college in 1990 I had a '78 LTD, which was my first LEGAL vehicle though

First ride was a 53 Willy's CJ3B, 350 cheBy v8, 5:38 gears and the stock gearbox.  I replaced the tranny 3 or 4 times before I learned to keep my foot out of the throttle. czervika2009-01-04 00:33:12

My first car was a '61 VW Type 1 (Bug for the uninformed!).  I had that car for 7 years.
 
The two cars I wish I still had are the '70 Challenger I bought to replce the VW, and the '87 RamCharger I bought which was why I sold the Challenger.  The RC was new, 360, NP435 4-speed and NP 208 transfer case.  I sold it a year after I moved to Kern County in '91.  I wasn't using the 4WD and didn't like 15 MPG.  Dumb!
 
First new car: '84 Mercury Lynx - I was newly married, a full-time Grad Student, needed a car that didn't require regular work (unlike the Challenger I had when we got married) and that was all I could afford.
 
Worst car: '79 Cordoba - POS!  I only had it two years.  The next shortest I ever kept a vehicle was the five years I owned the RC.  As of this year I've had the Newport for five years.
 
Best vehicle: my '93 Dodge B250 Conversion Van.  Did all I needed it to do including driving to 49 States and through Canada, in many dragging my trailer, and gave back 18-20 MPG empty and 16-18 towing.  I put 100,000 miles on it in four years after buying it used in '99 with 36,000 on it.  Great vehicle!  However, only once since I sold it in October '07 have I wanted it back - I needed to carry 6 people to a meeting!
