This is not the one I owned but the color and such is the same 1966, 327  HP.

I owned 5 others later but this was my first one.

My dad came home one day with a 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger.  Plum crazy purple,  white vinyl top, 318 ci.  He was a mechanic so he had it screaming fast.

It looked like this except mine had the white top and no scoops on the hood.  Wish I still had it.

I'm sure some of you had awesome cars back in the day.

Oh how I wish I still had my first car. How foolish I was to trade it in!!! I still don't know why I did that!!! Facepalm

I was born in 1953 my dad bought two new cars in 1954 one for him this Buick Riviera and one for my mother a Ford Thunderbird my dad would drive this everywhere and did for years until I was in High School and got my first drivers license then he gave it to me and it still looked as good as the day he drove it home brand new . I had it for ten years and loved it ..

I only wish I still had it; I sold it to a good friend that still has it today and now it's worth more than a house !!!! I sold it for $300.00 now it's worth $70.000 or more . The car has one hell of a history ... I remember asking my dad if he wanted it back and he said way I don't want any old cars any more; at that time he was driving a new pickup

Ah, that Toyota Landcruiser! They have held their value too!

I've been looking for one for my husband. Hard to find.



The car I wish I would not have parted with was my Jaguar Xj6 Vandenplas. I loved that car!

Luckily, the older ones aren't expensive anymore.

Dear Winter,
I am breaking up with you.
I think it is time I start seeing other seasons.

p.s. Summer is hotter than you
