Here’s another question: What kind of car did you drive in hs? Who did you think had the coolest car? I had NO car, so in my mind, everyone who had a car had a cool car!

    I don’t know. Let me find a pic of a similar one and see if any of the guys know if it was a Shelby.

    My very first car that I bought myself after college was an Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais. I walked into the dealership and said, “I want to order a car,” then sat down with a salesman and picked out the color and all the features I wanted. The car ended up costing me around $4,000, I think. Can’t imagine what that would cost now!

    1969 green Pontiac Catalina convertible. Steve Small drove the coolest car…it was an red Nova, I think it was a ’55. He used to uncap the headers and do burnouts in the parking lot after football practice 🙂

    First a very sexy beast – a green Vista Cruiser station wagon ; ) then a red Mustang II.

    The first car I bought myself was a 1984 Camero Berlinetta. I WISH it had only cost $4000 Andi Hyde Anderson! Mine was more like $14000!

    My first car was a ’73 Plymouth Road Runner. Banana Yellow. Wish I still had it! Look a lot like this photo. Mine had deep dish brushed alloy mags.

    I drove a VW Thing. Definitely not cool, but it was Pirate orange, and it was a convertible!

    oops… stationwagon. My dad decided on it & i then pd for it ($700) to establish credit. I was less than pleased @ the time but that long credit history has certainly served me well. Good ‘ole Dad!!

    Gretchen Gaskill, I’d forgotten about VW Things! Yeah Pirate Orange! I would have been driving a blue Pinto, but thankfully my sister totaled it.

    My sister had a red Pinto. First car I ever drove.

  • Carol Pinson
    Posted at 02:23h, 24 July

    My parents were big on the Pinto. We had a yellow one before the blue one. Thank goodness my siblings did away with them. It’s good to be the youngest.

    Seriously why you guys making fun of the fact that Andi Hyde Anderson had no car and I drove a Datsun? Bahahahaha!

  • Russell S Revell

    I think it is impressive that Carol drove a Pinto and lived to tell about it

    My having no car was totally my fault, lol, Libbie! I had to get a job and SAVE enough for a downpayment, then my dad would match it and pay my insurance and I would make the payments. I worked at John A. Brown, and my paycheck was spent before I ever got it. I had cute clothes, though, and friends who had cars, so it was ok. 😉

    Russell S Revell & Scott Kendall, sorry but I never got a chance to drive either Pinto. (Yeah!) My siblings, who are several years older, wrecked both of them…no explosions. But I did have to back out onto Ann Arbor. Scott, miss the GTO!

    Keith Iott had an awesome 1969 Mach 1 and it had Pearlescent Paint that looked different depending on the angle. He has his own Architecture Firm in Salisbury, Maryland these days.
