My Dad's 79 Honda Accord hatchback until I did a 360 in it. Barrel roll style. Then it was whatever 100k+ 200$ beater I could finish off the automatic in. '75 Plymouth Gran Fury Broughm, '76 AMC Matador, '71 Plymouth Satellite, '78 Ford Elite, '76 Pontiac Grand Prix... you get the idea.
Not so current build - '29 A Rats-N-Rice. Drivers! - '48 Olds '63 F100. Pile of parts - '30 Tudor.

What a great thread Tripper, sure wish I could go back to that time, even for one day. My first car in high school was a 65 Galaxy 250 six that promptly was replaced with a 302. Then I scored a 69 Mach 1 with 351 and a 4 gear. But the sweetheart was my 65 Chevelle SS with a very warmed up Vette 350/350 combo and 12 bolt posi 3:73 rear. Man I'd love to have that car back again.

Here is a list of some of the other cars guys were driving at my scholl at that time.

71 Challanger 340/auto
74 Cuda 360/auto
70 Super Bee 383/auto
70 Vega 327/ 4gear/9"rear
63 Galaxy conv, 390/auto
73 Nova 350/auto
51 Ford F1 239/4gear
69 Mini Cooper S
66 Chevelle 327/4gear. This car was purchased by this this guys dad new. It was a 4 door hard top, butter nut yellow, black vinyl top, black bench seat interior, and was very fast.

Graduated high school in 1992.
Got a 1963 falcon in 1990. Got a 70 F-100 in 1991 and it is still my daily driver. Best 2grand I ever spent.

You guys are all so...young. I started with a 1948 Chevy 2 door bought from a car lot for $125 in 1957. A year later I had a 1935 Ford 2 door. Paid $65 for that one. Then I put a 24 stud flathead in it that had seen a year of dirt track use on alcohol. Eventually I traded that one for a 1941 Ford coupe.
Among these cars was several $50 wonders to get around in while working on the good ones.
