This one is not mine; but mine looked just like it.
sooo beautiful, a piece of art. I also like very much the 1956 Buick Roadmaster, the 1978 Trans Am WS6, actually all of you had beautiful cars.

My first car, never ended up being registered to me....lost my job before I could put it "on the road". So I only drive it around the neighboring streets at night a few times, before I had to sell it. These pics are not mine.....20 years ago I had no camera. 1975 Audi 100

This is not a picture of my actual car, just a picture of a similar car. Mine was deep red with a white top and white vinyl interior. Nothing says, "I've arrived!" better than white vinyl seats.

I was 16 when I got it in 1987, and it was a basket case. It was one of those, "If you can get it out of here, you can have it for free" deals.

I spent just enough time and money on it to get it going, but never thought about making it stop. The engine sounded incredible! The brakes completely failed the first time I took it out on the street. Fourtunately I was able to avoid an accident by driving into a very long grass median that slowed me to a stop after about 1000 feet. I did manage to take out about seven different road signs in that distance, though.

I towed it back home and figured replacing the entire brake system was too costly and time consuming. I sold the car "as-is" and made about $500 profit for my troubles.
