What was the first car "you" bought?

As the title says, tell us what was the first car you ever bought with your own money. No gifts, hand me downs, etc.. has to be with your own hard earned cash.


Mine was a Ford MKII Escort, and was the very first. Blue, 4 door, 1.6, Auto. Full history, only two previous owners and started firt click everytime. The car was immaculate. Piad $1200 from a dealer when I was 16 years old (1990).

The pic is not mine, but it's exactly as it was, except for the side mirrors.

Re: What was the first car "you" bought?

ive never bought a car with my own money
my current XE falcon was bought by my dad for $200, i was supposed to go halves but i didnt really want it, but he bought it anyway to use for parts as it had an LSD & a few other goodies,
then 6 months later i needed a car and dad gave it to me.

im hoping to buy my mates Centura soon, its a beast!

XD 302 (was given, but i paid for it later down the track)

We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!

XE Fairmont Ghia... Silver/Grey Met over black, soon to be v8, cant wait till i get another v8, after 3 LONG HARD YEARS
