QOTD: What Was Your First Ride?

1969 Ford Torino  amp  Fairlane-16-17

After seeing yesterday’s blue AMC hearse, I got to thinking about that other important ride we have all taken.

My first ride was home from the hospital in a 1969 Ford Fairlane. ย Powered by a 302, it was the first car my father had ever purchased with an automatic transmission. ย He says the automatic was for my mother, however it was partly due to his having broken a hip.

Mrs. Jason isn’t sure what she came home in; she’s the youngest and, well, her parents were distracted with her two older brothers. ย My father-in-law thinks she came home in a ’57 Plymouth he had found with a mere 8,000 miles in 1970.

So in what car did you take your first ride? ย Bonus points are in order if you later drove that car.
