What did you drive on your first date?

Recommended Posts

Not my first date, but the first date with the girl I eventually married:  I drove our family car, a 1968 Camaro six banger with a Torque Drive semi-automatic transmission.

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.

 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.

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.

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

Wow those must be pretty rare today.  Did it have the big and little conestoga wagon wheels? ;)  You know it's all about the stance.

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.

The car I really don’t remember too much............the young lady and the police officer coming down the new subdivision road while parked behind a storage tractor trailer in a rather exposed position.........I remember well. Interestingly, after almost 34 years, I bumped into her again in a restaurant bar..............with my current lady of 20 years..........I had told her about the situation years ago........and she had a big smile on her face when she figured out it was the “girl from the story”.  It was an interesting evening!

My boyfriend had a Chevy van and he almost tipped it over coming down a steep and curvy mountain road! 😱 He was going too fast. 

You were brave getting into a Chevy van anyway!  Did it have shag carpet in it?

My first date that involved an automobile was when my Dad dropped me and my date off at the movie theater in his 61 Plymouth Valient.  A few months later, when I got my license I got to use it often.  When I went to college, I had a 63 Studebaker Lark, It was so rusty thanks to Michigan roads the seat rocked when you stepped on the gas.  Painted brown, mixed with Michigan rust, it was affectionately known as "the turd."  That girlfriend put up with a lot!

First date with my wife was on my '69 Kawasaki 500.  She squeezed on the back with no passenger pegs and fell in love with me and motorcycles.  Few months later I helped her buy her first motorcycle.

Friends of mine Dad provided them with a Mercury Comet, AKA the Vomit.  Ugly and slow is a great combination for teeenagers.  I'm sure their Dad was laughing every time they pulled out in it.  Got wrecked eventually.

1960 faded blue Corvair 4 door automatic with torn seat covers. I had to rely on my charm rather than a fancy car.

71 Camaro, not a bad ride for a 16 year old in 1980.... 😊

 

My pal Tom down the street was restoring a 59 Tbird with his dad.  He liked this girl who lived a few houses down.  The car was pretty well done by the time we were both around15.  So Tom and I would drive around the block in front of her house about 50 times a day after school.  I guess he was waiting for her to throw herself in the car...  well his dad found out, smacked him a bit and started taking the rotor out of the distributor.  End of problem.  Tom and Anita dated for years but I lost touch with them both after HS.
