And you are correct, keeping that 57 would have been worth a pretty penny today...and I mean bag loads of money.
Time to one up Magellan in "oldness"
1953 Ford, bought in 1963 for $250. Actually a very rare car for the day. It was a 2 door hardtop, black carpets, black headliner, vinyl seats, and all factory tinted windows. Flathead V8 too! Like Magellan, wish I still had it.

Aloha,
Larry

So I see a common theme...whoever owned a Toyota either had no problems with it or it was bulletproof and they drove it everywhere.

And there should be an automatic DQ for the Lambo guy...lol!

Excluding the two cars I had in high school and college, my 1st car that I paid for was a brand new red 1994 Pontiac Firebird (back in 1994). I have always been a sports car/sports sedan kind of guy and not much has changed over the past 23 years. I did have a brief encounter with a '95 Ford Ranger truck (brand new) in which the transmission went out at 10K miles. Once it was fixed, I drove directly to a Honda dealership and bought a '96 Honda Civic and never bought a domestic since then.....Here is my history below:

1981 Chevy Monte Carlo
1986 Ford EXP
1994 Pontiac Firebird
1995 Ford Ranger
1996 Honda Civic EX
1996 Acura TSX
1995 Mazda Millenia S - Favorite car
1996 Acura TL
2001 BMW 525i
2008 Honda Civic EXL
2010 Honda Accord Coupe EXL
2009 Acura TL SHAWD Tech - 3rd Favorite
2015 Lexus IS 250 F Sport - Current ride and 2nd Favorite

Turned 16 in 2008, Got my driver's license on my 16th birthday. Bought my own 2004 G35 Coupe (saved up for 16 years) the same day. And got my first ticket on the way home. All on the same day.
