    Mine, bought off a Master At Arms in the Navy at my 2nd technical training school.
    I taught myself how to drive at 19 years old in Florida after I bought this boat.

    1972 Olds Cutlass "S"
    Red , with original mags, and a black vinyl top, and spoiler.
    Blew up in La Grange Georgia 1993 and left for dead. RIP

    You don't have to post YOUR exact car, just something close to it.

    Not an actual pic of my car but it's the right year & color. Yup, a 72 Pinto, Bought it on my 16th Bday & drove it 48,000 miles before it got totaled by a drunk(rear ended me) 11 months later.
    I drove that thing everywhere, we used to play a game of car tag & it was not unusual to drive 500+ miles every weekend while playing.

    Nope, didn't need much sleep then. I was either chasing girls or driving them somewhere, LOL.

    I could fill the tank for $9 & that was good for a couple hundred miles, on a typical weekend, 3 tanks was normal.

    1962 Mercury Comet..Beige 4 door..170Cubic inch in-line 6 with 4 bolt 13" wheels. Upgraded in summer of 1967 to 14 inch wheels, painted black with chrome lug nuts and chrome dust cap. Red wall tires and white letter (sort of) tires. I think I had E60 on the front and F60 on the rear and it was very close. Painted the grill black, added chrome hood pins, added an orange stripe over the front wheel well and down the side...topped off with a shiney chrome tailpipe tip and a Southwest MissouriState College sticker in the rear window...painted the engine bay black as well as the air cleaner. Finished off my "restoration" with a "Chevy Eater" license plate.
    It was my Dads car...after my "mods" he let me have it and went and bought him another.:) It was my senior year in high school afterall. Pics are prob. over at my Moms...maybe i can locate sometime...
