What did you drive on your first date?


Recommended Posts

My first date was a double date in college with a lovely young lady named Susan, her friend Kathy and a nice guy that Kathy liked. That was in 1978 or 79, I think. We drove my 1970 Chevelle SS 396 with chrome reversed wheels and air shocks. I haven't seen those folks since college...I hope life has treated them well.

My first date was in my Dad's 1966 Chrysler 300 two door hardtop. It was red with a black vinyl roof and a black interior. I LOVED that car. My first date in my OWN car was in my 1968 Plymouth Road Runner coupe. I had gotten it the day of my date and my Dad actually let me take it out on the date with no insurance, yet! I did very well and did NOT get into trouble THAT night with the car. Days later....well....that is a whole bunch of other stories, mostly about street racing in it. Wish I still had that one....

On my first date where we were mobile on our own, we took my girlfriend's '82 Trans Am.

The first time that I drove on a date I drove my '75 Camaro.

 

First date with my late wife I drove my '78 Silver Anniversary L-82 Corvette.

Bought my first car and learned to drive in it when I was 15.  Worked washing dishes at a small restaurant to earn the $40.00 to buy a 1936 Dodge Business cp.  Sure was a fun car but not very handy for a double date LOL.  Great for just my girlfriend and I though.  Lots of great memories from those days.

Well perhaps I’m somewhat kooky in the late 1990’s  I drove my 27 Chev on my first date and I still have her today, the car not the girl.thought about selling it a few years ago but couldn’t we have been through too much together so many great memories

My first date, in my own car was in July, 1966. I had graduated high school in June. My father cosigned for a car loan for a 1963 Chevrolet Impala

convertible. It was Polomar Red, with black interior and top.

On the way home from the dealership, a girl I went to school with was standing on the curb in front of her house. I stopped to show off my 'new' car.

She was waiting for her 1959 Ford that she just bought, to be delivered.

She like my car, and out of the blue, I asked her to a movie that night. We dated for about a year, then went our separate ways.

We stayed in touch, until she passed away in March, 2016.

1956 Corvette. Not my first date car, but the first car that I bought after high school. Met a very special lady in college, that was my first date in this car, and we have been married for 50+ years ever since.

My oldest brothers Cuda fastback 383 S triple black. God I miss that car.. I used to detail it for him daily

 

Similar to this that I found on the web. Might even be the same car... only noticeable difference is that he had all chrome Cragar rims  without the black back drop.

1 hour ago, oily rag said:

 Four of us went for an island picnic in my leaky 12 ft ceder strip row boat built about 1910 with a beat up 1930s Sea King 2 HP outboard.  

So who bailed? I hope you were atleast gentlemen enough to not make the ladies bail.  Atleast not on the first date.

I can't remember which was first but I took a couple of ladies for rides in these.  I guess you could call them first dates,  though I was such a gear head I didn't get past the driving part. 

 

 

I had the Pink 53 Lincoln prior to the 61 Maroon Tbird but that didn't yield any dates either.  

 

When I eventually met my wife and we were dating her first ride in an old car was the Tbird.  That was her favorite.  Of course I sold it on her later to buy a 57 Tbird. 

She later told me the key to getting women to go for a ride is you actually had to stop long enough for them to jump in.  

 

Of course she didn't tell me that secret until after I married her. 

My first real date was with my 97 Chevy 2500 truck.  Took the rest of my dates out in that truck as well until I met my wife that also went on our first date in that. (It was winter so no old cars out)   Of course this was just a dinner date that went no where as it was a  blind date and there was no attraction whatsoever.

Not my first date, but the first date with the girl I eventually married, 1953 Buick.  Second date was with the car in my Avatar.  Still have same car and married to the same girl I met 54 years ago on the 25th of May and married on the 27th of November.  1965 was a wonderful year.
