Red 1969 VW Beetle bought wrecked for $200 in '91 when I was 15. Restored it over 4 years while daily driving it. Drove it from VA to SC for college.

2015 Lexus IS250 F-Sport is my first car! Drove my mom's SUV for about 10 years before buying my own.

1989 Toyota Celica. Looked almost exactly like this. Took that car all over the country in the military - never let me down.

My first car was a 57 Chevrolet Bel-Air that I bought used in 1960. I sold it after four years, but now wish I had kept it.

I was pretty sure Magellan was going to blow us all out of the water with oldest vehicle...and I was not disappointed! Way to go Magellan!!!
And you are correct, keeping that 57 would have been worth a pretty penny today...and I mean bag loads of money.

Back in 2008 I bought a 1998 Audi A4 v6 Quattro. 200k+ miles on there. That thing was super reliable!!! Contrary to popular belief.

I had a beat up 2003 ML500 that I purchased from my parents for about 4k. I didn't drive it all that much since it was such a gas guzzler.

My first car purchased out of college was a 4th Gen Maxima. It was an awesome car for the time and the 5th gen wasn't out yet. I bought it used for $12k with only 36k miles on it...screaming deal. I drove that thing cross country many times and its still in the family running great. My first new car was the G35 coupe. I LOVED that car and had it for 11 years. Not much went wrong till it reached 100k then it the expensive repairs started adding up so I grabbed my current IS350 F-sport.

2011 GMC Terrain. Traded that almost immediately for a 2008 Acura RDX and had that for almost 3.5 years until I ended up in a ditch . went through a few other cars, mainly a 2008 Audi S4 Avant (the v8 years) and ended up here.
