Hey ~mc~ we were not rolling in cash.  I worked all summer at a lemon ranch with two other teenagers.  We planted 3000 lemon trees.  When summer was over I had saved over $600 to purchase my first car.  The MG cost $500.

then they bought me a chevy Corsica for 1200.00 .. I worked to pay my own insurance. mostly because I had like 6 speeding tickets and my dad kicked me off his insurance Chuckle

My old BMW was the smoothest ride I ever owned. I loved that car. But as it got older, it got real expensive to repair.

“The sky over Patusan was blood-red, immense, streaming like an open vein.
An enormous sun nestled crimson amongst the treetops,
and the forest below
had a black and forbidding face.”

So true, one of the first cars I owned was a 1963 Plymouth Valiant. Paid $50 for it. Drove it for several years and sold it for $100. Damn good car.

My first car was a 1985 El Camino Conquista. 305 v-8 Teal exterior with blue velour interior. Got it when I was 14 and sold it when I got my license. My family owned a car lot when I was a kid and still do. But during the summer months  I would work at the lot and wash cars and go and pick lunch up in the Camino with a dealer tag. But when the time came my step dad told me that I had to fix it right if I was going to keep it which involved getting it repainted and that was gonna clean my savings out. Or I could take my moms used 92 Explorer for free. So I took the Explorer. Hindsight being what it is it'd probably be still driving the Camino daily today had I just had it repainted. But then again I wound up getting a Wimbledon white and blue interior 66' mustang back in 04' which I still have today! That and a few other rides... Wink
