The first car that I ever owned....1954 Austin Healy 100-4 Roadster. Bought it used in 1960, what a fun ride!

We had a '67 Mustang. My husband drove it every spring/summer 100 miles round trip to work--the only reason he would buy it was if it would be useful as well as fun. No a/c, power steering or brakes, so we didn't bring it to FL. Just sold it for $2K more than we paid.

I had a 1960 Triumph Herald (4 seater convertible) through high school and college. Finally donated it to a church my senior year of college because no way would it make it from Georgia to Pennsylvania. I loved that car. In high school we got many, many kids in that car with the top down... sprawling everywhere, going up and down those Pittsburgh hills. Wouldn't go fast enough to hurt anyone.

My dad bought it for me in high school and then kept it up for me till he passed away when I was in college in GA. So it had an emotional connection for me. I still miss him (more) and the car (less). He was the greatest, and the car was totally unreliable.

Later I had a '72 Triumph TR 6 that financed our mechanic's several trips to Bermuda.

Nice Olds.....I bought a really clean, 1956 Olds 88 4dr hardtop (same red & white )
to use as a second car sometime in the early 60’s,
even though gas was cheap, had to let it go,
I didn’t own a refinery!

Those shackles were necessary due to adjustable air shocks on rear...plus, it was the cool look back then. When I got to
Germany, I had to change my gears back to 3.23 from 3.91 so I could run the autobahns.

The first new car I ever bought was when I was 19 years old, a 1966 Olds 442 convertible, it was a low option 4-speed car, I paid $3,033.00 for it and it took half my monthly pay to make the payments but it was worth it. I used to race it at Dragway 442 in West Salem Ohio, I held the BB Amateur class (street tires and no modifications were allowed) speed and time record of 14:07 and 103 mph. I can still remember how that car smelled when I picked it up at the dealership, less than a year later it was stolen and recovered, 3 months later it was stolen again and was stripped and wrecked.

Got 11mpg if I babied it ( which was rarely). You should see the gas gauge go down when accelerating.
