My daughter is shopping for her first. She found one she likes and is taking it to a mechanic today to make sure it doesn't have any obvious defects. I'm really proud of her for saving the money (we told her we'd pay half) and she's being very responsible about the whole thing.
My first car was a HUGE oxidized blue Cadillac with tail fins. If it hadn't had the tail fins, I never would have been able to go in reverse because I couldn't see the back end and it was big. The car never ran well, but it had sort of that Love Shack vibe (we used to sing "hop in my Caddy it's as big as a whale and it's about to set saiiiil").
What was your first car like?
