We are the last generation to learn how to parallel park correctly with a boat, if you can maneuver a car that large you can drive anything. I learned how to drive in a 1974 Galaxie 500. Lol

Lol , it's so true . I started off on a 70 Ford prospectors pick up and a 71 Buick sta tion wagon



Then a 72 Buick skylark , I think, which was a boat as well. I think the first mid size or near mid size was the Ford maverick .... H column shift , 4 speed I think

Awesome! I bought a 70 Buick Estate Wagon after high school and my mom had a 68 or 70 Buick Electra. They were both heavy metal boats. The odometer in my 70 wagon had already turned over and had another 60-some thousand miles on it by the time I bought it for $200. Loved the electric back window in it. It was still running like a beast when the odometer hit 137,000 and I left it to a friend when I joined the Army in '89.

That's a sweet wagon! My aunt had a Ford Maverick that she drove all the up to NJ from Florida in the dead of summer with no AC. She gave it to my brother and flew back after her stay. She said she'll never drive that far again, this was 78 if I remember, that trek must have been murder... lol

Lets face it.. the 80's really didn't bring much good to the world. Weird clothes, weirder music, and similar atrocities of the automobile variety. So, I will just post my first car, which consequently was also my birth year.

1983 VW Scirocco

I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.
