      Whoo man, that looks very similar to my dearly missed '68 GT, except mine was BRG with a white racing stripe down the side. I absolutely LOVED that car, and one of my few automotive regrets was selling it.

      My sister thought it would be fun to let me to drive her '56 bug when I was twelve years old.
      She didn't think it was so much fun when I started sneaking it out on my own later that year
      It was just like this, only in black:

      First car I ever started, put into gear, and moved...

      Worse condition, but looked just like that, and same year.

      Close enough. Ours was tan.
      I wouldn't say it was "driving". I got to turn this beast (brand new) around in the palatial driveway we had. Took out one of the supports for the carport in the process. Nary a scratch on the "Chief"

      I remember being about 13 when my dad took me to the local high school parking lot on a Sunday night and handed me the keys to our old '88 Cutlass Ciera. Even though I didn't even touch the gas (I idled around the lot for an hour ) it was a very enjoyable time in my life. Here's a stock photo (just about the same as our old car):

      How about you guys and gals?

      HAHA , my driving school vehicle was a white cutlass ciera it screeched pretty good on the turns

      Technically?

      I was 6. I climbed in the driver's window while my mom was warming it up (my sister was SUPPOSED to be watching me). I put it in D and drove over my best friend's bike, through a neighbor's fence and hit their deck.


      Best one so far
      My first car I've ever driven:

      Driving lessons in (not pics of actual cars):

      Fiat Stilo JTD, the Diesel engine was torquey, beside that it was a horrible POS.


      It was powered by a 1.6 engine converted to run on natural gas. So it wasn't just crappy, but also slow as hell....
      If I was like two years older, this would've been one of my first cars to ever drive, just when it came out in 2002:

      That would be an oval. Splitties have SPLIT rear windows.

      Had to wait till I had a license... no driving at an early age for me.


      ...really wish I had a better picture of that car... I had driven it down dirt roads the day I took that picture with the worst digital camera ever produced. (Kodak easy-share 3Mpixel from like 1999-2000)

      Holy hell. It's my first car. Silver, four door, 5-speed. Same wheels too.
      The first car I drove was an automatic Vanagon: (generic google image)

      A complete pile of garbage similar to this*:

      My family's car was a light blue 505 GL wagon. It was a very unique car that was broken on a monthly basis. I've never owned a car remotely as awful as that car and I've owned a fair number of VWs, even a mkIV. I did have some fun memories on that car--especially the memory of it puking all sorts of fluids on our driveway after sitting for 3 months at mileage of about 70k--the car was promptly towed to a junk yard and I then moved on to a VW Fox. To be fair though, the engine internals on the car were quite rugged. Everything else attached to it was garbage though.
      The second car I drove was a 1990 Corrado G60 that I learned to drive stick on. It was a fantastic car...if it wasn't for my mom getting into an accident and totaling it!

      *taken from another CL thread

      It's a Fiat 124, but it was also produced under license by many other manufacturers. Like Lada and Seat.
