Hey guys!  Was curious what your first car was and what your dream car is?  Post pictures and descriptions if you have them.

I love just about anything with wheels, especially old vehicles.  I think I got this obsession from my Dad who is still like a little kid when it comes to old cars.  Just recently my dad bought a 47 Plymouth at a Barrett Jackson auction!

Like I've heard most say, I wish I hadn't sold my first car.  It was a 1966 Dodge Powerwagon Pickup Truck with the step-side bed.  It was made for the Army National Guard and still had the Olive drab paint job.  I've never since seen a small bed pickup with 2 ton suspension.  It rode like a tank and was geared so low that it's top speed was 50 mph.  She was a beast and could 4x4 like it was no one's business!!!

I have a couple dream cars.  If I won the lottery, I'd want to buy a Lamborghini Countach.  I've always dreamed of having one of these since I was a little kid.
A more realistic dream car which I hope to buy someday soon is not even a car but a small semi.  I've always loved the Mack B-Series trucks from the 40's through the 60's.  I've seen several of these trucks for sale on the internet and every once in a while one will show up in a heavy equipment trader.  You can find the ones (that still run) from the 60's for a couple grand.

Here's a couple pics of examples of my dream B Series Mack Truck.  Sorry, no pictures exist of my Powerwagon.  I have one picture of it burried in the archives somewhere in Black/White, but I have no idea where it might be.

Summer of 1972.
a friend of my Grandfather had this car out behind the barn sitting up on some barrels. He said we could have it if we wanted it. Don't remember how long it had been sitting there. Grandad put some oil down into the spark plug holes and we removed the gas tank in order to get a bullet hole patched up. We found some tires and wheels to put on it. a week or two later we went back and put the tank and tires on, got it off the barrels. Put antifreeze and water into the radiator and gas into the tank and a new battery. a little gas in the carburetor to prime it and it fired right off. I drove it home from Greeley Colorado to Lubbock Texas. This car ran great. I even got it up to 120mph a couple of times. And that is not all it would do. That's just what the speedometer went to.

These pictures are not the one I had and mine was gray with a white top....Did not have the roof rack

1959 Pontiac Station Wagon

My first was a 79 hatch back mustang that I treated like a truck. Every vehicle I have owned since has been a truck.

My current truck is almost my dream truck, if only it were 4 wheel drive.

This is as close to a dream car for me there is

First car was a 1971 Ford Pinto(stop laughing)

Dream car hmmmm that's a hard one.  '67 GTO or maybe a '65 Hemicuda or the one I'd like to build from the ground up; Mid engine awd powered by a diesel two stroke V12 that I would design a build of course. Ahhh so many dreams so little time.

I could see myself, Johnny bigfish and Irwin cruising down the boulevard in one of those hydraulic jobbies where the thing bounces and jumps down the street, fuzzy dice hanging from the rear view mirror and those rotating rims that make you dizzy.

Of course we all have beer cans stuck to our foreheads!

My first car was a 1970 Dodge Super Bee. The second,also a 70 Superbee. Third 68 Plymouth Roadrunner with a 383 engine that i equipped with a 2-4barrel carb setup and a4:30 geared rear with low profile tires.
 My favorite was when I put the 383 dual quad in My 78 Powerwagon with a 3800 rpm stall torque convertor. People were told back then if they wanted to know if their car was fast, come line it up with my truck. Those were the good days. Wish I had that to do over again.

This is the body style of my first car,but mine was a lime green with a black vinyl top.Pistol grip shifted four speed to be sure!!

My first car was a pale blue, 1965, 1200 cc VW Beetle, economy version.  The one where you kicked a peg in the foot well to switch to the reserve gas tank.

My dream car is a 1996, canary yellow, Mazda RX7 RS1.  Sequential twin turbo, perfect 50:50 weight distribution and 0 to 60 in 5.1 seconds.  Hmmmmmm.

This should be fun Smiley

First car I had in 1969, a 1956 Ford Crown Victoria, blue over white,
Second was one for parts to keep the first one running.
Third was a 1963 Cutlass F 85, smaller than a Nova with an all aluminum V-8 four barrel carb, buckets, three on the floor, and a posi track rear end.
Fourth was a 1965 Impala Super Sport in 1971, one of my favorite cars, it was coupe, dark blue with white flare on the side and white leather bucket seats and interior.  It was the last production year for the 409 and this one came from the factory with dual quads, the owners manual said it was 500HP.
Fifth was my first brand new car off the show room floor, a 1973 Charger 440 Magnum, it was a metallic bronze with black humped hood and side striping.  It had the slap stick shifter and high back leather bucket seats.  Just like Johnnys it's speedometer went to 160 and it would do all that and more, I never found the bottom of that petal.
Since then it has been a blur of mostly trucks and SUV's, 1976 El Camino, 76 and 86 Suburban's, 86 Ram Charger, 86 Firebird, various pickups, and now the 98 Durango and a 08 Ram 2500.  I do have my kids 1965 Mustang to get rid of, and recently dad gave me Gramps 1946 Chevrolet flatbed dully, all original.  That could make a fun retirement project.

Now how about Harleys?  Got my first 1963 my senior year of high school in 1970, never been without one or two ever since.  I just completed my latest build.  My 1947 Knucklehead is now setting in a 2006 K-9 chassis, way cool.

My dream car is the 2009 Hemicuda.  Mopar baby.

I still can't find my old pic of my truck.  When I do I'll post it.  But here's one I found online that gives you an idea of what my old powerwagon looked like:
