What was the first car you ever owned? My first car was a yellow Chevy Vega that I got when I was sixteen. It was a piece of junk that I later traded in for a 73 Mercury Capri.
I loved that Mercury Capri and it's the only car I ever named. She was called "Charity" and I put some serious miles on that car between high school and college before I traded it in on a Honda Accord.
We've put together a gallery of some sweet rides. I was born in 1970 and the car that made its debut in my year of birth was a Dodge Challenger.
