Mine Was a Truck

Steve got me thinking about my first car, as important as my first love.

My first car was a 1965 Chevy pickup. It was Massey Ferguson yellow (similar to a Caterpillar bulldozer) because my dad had a tractor dealership at that time.


My second car, the one I had in college, was a 1967 Chevrolet pickup, a classy dark red or maroon. It was better looking than this one here.


Now I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado pickup that I inherited from my dad. It's gray with a single cab like this one, and and a short bed. (This photo is of a GMC Sierra, but they are close to the same thing.)

I didn't love my first car, a Pontiac Bonneville, but I had boyfriends who had some pretty cool cars, some of which would be worth a lot!

My first car was a 1973 canary yellow Chevy Camaro. A V8 — what a rocket!

My first vehicle was a 1978 2 door, green, Ford Bronco. While pregnant with my third I found I couldn't hoist myself into the back seat to buckle up car seats so I got a temperamental, beige, Ford station wagon that didn't like to start in cold weather. When it refused to start in warm weather I traded it in for a white Plymouth Acclaim. Then after being without a car for a few years I got that ancient piece of %^^&$^@# 1987 blue Toyota Camry station wagon that is STILL sitting in our driveway. Now I drive a black Ford Fusion. Don't remember what year it is but I know it's from this century.

Still got that Camry? Saving it for parts?

You might as well have been a guy ... you never heard of a chick car? My first and only car was an Austin that a friend gave me and it had been in a flood and it never worked right and I finally junked it. It was that or get killed driving on Third Avenue in New York during rush hour and the motor died. I managed to get to the curb. Now, of course, I drive our Isuzu SUV and Ed is thrilled that it is a truck chassis, but it is nowhere as smooth a ride as a regular sedan.

One time I saw where women buy blue-red cars, and men buy orange-red cars. We never go by color, we take pot-luck, but I would avoid light blue because I think they are hard for other drivers to see from a distance.

My first car was a Renault, I loved it. My husband replaced it with a red
Kharmin Ghia that vaperlocked so much that I had to carry a coke bottle
full of water with me. I learned to hate Volkswagon.

Those old VWs were really something - the heater and windshield wipers barely worked. Mr. YouKnow had a VW beetle in college.

You strike me as a convertible type of guy - dramatic and classic.

Pickup truck woman... sounds like a hit country song.

I sure do like my truck, and am also fond of tractors and riding lawn mowers. Cars? Not as much.
