Talk about memories, my first looked exactly like the one in the brochure with the blonde. 1970 Mercury Cougar.

Thanks  Richard, I've actually had this link for a couple of years but, thanks for sharing it with everyone else here.  It comes in handy sometimes. I still can't pull up my first car, a '55 Chevy Del Ray 210, unless I pull up all the other models with it here. It would be like the yellow and white one only mine was red  when I got it. 4_zpsbef36c22.jpg

Very cool site!  My first car was a '68 Galaxie 500 convertible.  Red with a white top.  Loved that car!

In early 1972 I was a junior in high school when I bought my first car , a 1969 Torino Cobra Jet .   I drove it for 3 months before my Dad made me sell it !

Nice Bob!  Why did your Dad make you sell it or should I ask?  My Dad didn't want me to have a car until I graduated from college.  Unfortunately he died when I was 14 and I talked my Mom into letting me have my first car (to fix up) when I was 15.

I was 16 ( turned 17 in October that year ) ,  had just gotten my license ,  and got 2 tickets the first month !    I bought it with my own money but never asked before I did so I almost lost the car then .  I sold my Torino ,  paid the tickets ,  and bought a Vega !

[attachment=31920:19.jpg] Here is my first car... I was only 3 years old when it came out, but when I was in my late teens I lucked out and found one and did a ground up restoration and spent about $8,000 and then sold it because I needed to pay for school... I miss that thing!!!

Heck of a first car Bob, I'm jealous!

 

My first was a red, cough, '90 Ford Probe GL, cough.  It was actually a pretty reliable and good car.  I even spanked a late 70's or so Monte Carlo with it once.  Probably had more to do with the chump behind the wheel of the Monte more than anything else though. lol
