My first was a 1967 Pontiac Firebird. That was in 1978. It was more colors than the rainbow. My dad paid about 400 for it. I got it when I was 18. It was a good ride though. It had a 326 four barrel with a 4 speed and posi-traction. The first car I bought on my own was a 73 Chevrolet Impala two door with a 350. Nice big car. Got me through college and into the military.
