My First Car - Posted for all those students that always ask!

First Car - 1967 Galaxie 500
Ah, the summer of 1986… Expo was in Vancouver, Honeymoon Suite was the hot band on the radio and it was time for my first set of wheels. After selling the dirt bike, taking a hammer to my piggy bank and working Saturdays at my old man’s truck shop in Cloverdale I scrapped up a whopping $600 to buy my first car. With just 32,436 miles on the odometer this 1967 Galaxie 500 was all mine. 4 wheel drum manual brakes, no power steering and only lap seat belts… but I didn't care, it was my first ride, the sun was shining and I had a smile on my face.
