What did you drive on your first date?

Recommended Posts

1st date ever, my parents 60 Studebaker Lark wagon.      1st date with my 1st wife, my 63 1/2 Falcon Futura.     1st date  with my "now" wife, my 61 Falcon Ranchero street driven gasser looking truck.  (straight axle and slicks).    Married my "now" wife by driving my 56 Studebaker Sky Hawk with a HUGE hole in the floor in July of 75 around North Alabama trying to find some place that would marry us.  It worked, still have her, ha !

Many prior dates before getting drivers license and car insurance, but-

First date in my own car was in 1959 in my Red 1949 Pontiac convertible, straight-Eight flathead and three-on-the-tree.

I remember the fist date I ever had in my 1936 Dodge Brothers D2 Touring sedan when I was 17 years old. My girlfriend and I went out to a local lake one evening and I parked where we had a terrific view of the lake. We "talked" and "stuff" and sort of dozed off. We woke up a while later and the car was surrounded by water. I never thought a small lake would rise with the tide. Luckily, I was able to actually drive it out in reverse, but it was scary.

I do remember telling her about the seat folding back to make a bed and don't think she went in the car a second time.

Still have the car. (not that same girl)

My first date was in my mother’s 1967 Camaro RS Convt. I now own it and drive it often on AACA tours.

Reminds me of the tv show "Auto Biography"

One episode tells of a cop testing some new sonar and finding TWO cars with people in them twelve feet deep off of a boat ramp.

Turns out the two are not related but both happened within a year of each other about forty years ago.

Its a relatively new show on the Motor Trend channel.

My first date after receiving my drivers license at the age of 16 I drove my 1959 Pontiac Catalina, a 389" four bolt main  420"A" Tri-Power with a 4 speed HD Super HydraMatic with a 3.08 Posi for the street, and 3.90 and 4.10 Posi for drag racing depending on track conditions.

 It's funny that when I was 14 years old I received my IHRA drag racing license also in that 59 Catalina!

First date was literally on horses! We went for a ride

 

my first date in a car was a double date in my buddy’s mother’s 60 Comet. He hated  to drive so I did all the driving, I didn’t have a license. 

 

First date with with my wife of 49 years was a 62 Tbird.

The first date I went on with my car was in 1971 in a 1964 Plymouth Belvedere 4-door sedan with a 318-ci V-8 and pushbutton automatic transmission.  Also used it for my first job--delivered a lot of Little Caesar's pizzas with that car.  (And I made good money doing it--not many other legal ways a teenager could make $100-$125 in cash on a Friday or Saturday night in 1971/1972.  Of course, gas was only about 36-cents/gallon then.)
