What was your first car?

Mine was an almost new 87 RX-7 turbo II, blue in color. Mom took it away from my prick step dad because it was causing 'trouble' in their relationship.

Similar to this but no cool BBS wheels

First car I bought was a 1969 Datsun 1000 at age 13. Bought with a buddy and drove it to the ground in the next couple of years in our yard and a little bit on the backroads, too...

First one after getting license was a 1971 BMW 2002tii. One of the cars I most regret ever selling.

Both white, just like in the pics. Unfortunately I don’t have own pics handy at the moment, so interwebs pics will have to do.

I was 17 when I bought this. Canadian version R1224, with the Euro spec engine. I added the Kamei spoiler. It was not a very good car, truth be told and despite only being 4 years old when I sold it in 1980, it was getting rusty. Next car was much better, a Peugeot 404 Coupé Injection (not the one I have now).

1978 Opel Commodore 2.5S Gold color, manual transmission, in-line 6, it was a nice car never gave me big headache, comfy too, I wish I still have it here in US, that would be fun to drive. Although Commodore B is a more iconic car but I could never find a good example these days.
