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 !

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

Not from the listed site, I had to venture out on the Internet to find this page... my first car was a '66 Valiant V100 2 door sedan. 225 slant six, auto trans, power steering. It was originally beige with a red interior. I had it painted silver.

'78 Chrysler Newport 4 door hardtop, mine was Jasmine yellow with a gold vinyl top. Wish I still had it, it was a beautiful car. Last of the Detroit dinosaurs.
