    Our cars of our past

    Nomads topic on the second hand Mazda, made me think of a good topic, the cars we have owned (or the bank did) over the journey. I've never been a picture taker of my cars so these are from around the net similar to what i had/

    First car, 1976 Ford Cortina, four on the floor.



    Second car Holden Premier with velour roof 555, it was a heap of crap



    Third car my dream car a V8 Ford Falcon



    More to come later..

    First car was HK Panelvan


    I bought it off my dad, first night (18th birthday) my best mate and I went out cruzing.... The roads were wet and the 308 had plenty of power maybe a bit too much power. Went around a corner and gave it a squirt and as you can imagine the ass end started to drift, I shat myself and hit the anchors causing the van to go into a full slide right into a concrete bus shelter on the opposite side of the road..... The damage was minimal but huge in the scheme of things as there was not even a blemish on the full restored paintwork.... Even though I owned the car I knew my dad would hit the roof!..
    We drove around all night in hope that my folks would be asleep by the time we eventually made it home. My mate who also got his licence on this day was bugging me to have a drive and eventually I allowed him the pleasure as we had decided to go home.
    "OK as we drive down my street slip it in to neutral, turn the lights off and switch the engine off and just coast up onto to the nature strip" I said to him... "Yeah no worries mate all over it"..... The engine and the lights were off and we were coasting down the street "MATE what are you doing you missed my house" well next thing he locked up the brakes and did a 10m skid right out the front of my folks.....
    Well my folks ended up coming out and giving us a lecture about how dangerous it was driving in the wet luckily it was to dark to see the crease in the front quarter panel, all I could think of was how sore my ass was going to be in the morning!....
    About 4am I was woken up to my mum screaming "Craig there's someone in your car" I ran out the front to see my van go around the corner... some prick had flogged it!!....

    About a week later the police called to say they had found the car and that I could get it from where it had been left. I'd had a few drinks so I called my Dad to see if he could get it for me. About an hour later he came in and by the look on his face I knew something was wrong... "Mate your not going to be happy, the b@stard stacked it" I ran outside and did a lap of the car "where, what did they do" my dad walked over to the front quarter panel and pointed to the crease.

    AM this is a brillant thread and i am surprised its only gaining momentum now...........oddly enough i wanted to start this exact same thread about 6 months ago when all the 2 wheeled crowd where going off about their bikes for months on the bike thread..

    I didn't get it started because all my cars of my past are in photo albums i am yet to scan and get digital.............well now its time to get scanning, and its uncanny because i also owned a MK3 Cortina like the very 1st pic you posted !!

    Sadly i don't have a pic of my very 1st car .........a land crab...5555 Morris 1100......maybe not so sad i dont have a pic..555555555555

    Some nice cars there, Muscle cars and vans are so cool when your'e 21.
    My best car ever was this Chrysler Drifter van, V8 Black and smooth. 1977.
    It never had an Aircon.

    When I was 16, I ran the ticket box at the local drive -in, and in a small town Saturday night was "Drives" night, the back row was always full of PV's parked back the front, and pretty sure not much movie watching was done.

    My favourite chick puller - an Austin Healey 100M.
    Only 6 were sold in OZ - I bought mine from the daughter of Melbourne's Austin dealer.
    Like others I pranged it on the test drive (aluminum body!) so there was no room for negotiation on the asking price.
    I sold it to go overseas.

    Boy did it love the Geelong Road - 26 mph per 1000 rpm in 4th overdrive.
    A big throbbing 4 pot.

    Girlfriend swapping was the go in the back rows.
