    Cool forum topic. Ours was a huge 1950 Buick Stationwagon. Drove it down to Mexico and camped out for 3 months every summer. Mom loaded it down to the hilt on top and inside, and even up the back window with stuff needed to survive down there. Laguna Beach family. A drunk driver hit us on the coast road in 1957 and totalled the car and almost all of us, but the car saved our lives. It was a tank!

    When I'm grwing up our family car was Fiat padmini petrol car. We used that car for more than 15 years and we were very comfort with that. After I got married I purchased to Tata Indica dle model. I'm very much enjoying my drive.

    The first family car my parents had was a 1965 Pontiac Bonneville 4 door with a 389 and 4 barrel. It is maroon with a black interior, and yes i said it is. They still have it. It will be mine one day, and is currently (supposedly) getting a bit of a freshening up for an upcoming wedding. (my sister's) That car is a blast to drive, just power galor, and can smoke the tires right off the rims. The bonnie was the last car my grandfather bought, and when he died my dad got it, so it's been in the family since new. After that it was full sized ford vans, a club wagon and then two conversion vans. that's what I learned how to drive in, and took my drivers test driving the club wagon. biggrin image

    My mom had a red 4 door 1963 chevy corvair 700 with an auto trans that had the shifter select lever on the dash My dad drove a 1963 Lincoln continental convertible in Wimbledon's white with white leather and white(off white) top and a Muntz 4 track tape player. Both were bought brand new in 63.mom drove the lincoln from about 68 until 1971 when dad sup prized her with an Olds Torpedo(Toranado) I thought that car was so cool because it would do front wheel burn outs that made the car disappear completely in the blue tire smoke! (front drive w/Olds 455)

    I remember a few, but the 1 of most interest was a car my mother drove. A 1975 Hurst/Olds. Her and a friend of hers owned 1 each. My moms was white on white on white, her friends was black on black on black. Moms was a 350, her friends was the bad boy 455. Unfortunatley after moms friend bought hers, mom had to have one. The unfortunate thing was that as rare as these were, not many to be found and Mom had to settle for the 350. Fast forward 34 years and i now own the car. It has never left the family smile image

    Well there was a few, but i like most was my granpas 66 mustang who he gave to my dad, who gave to me when i was 15. I let the local college use it in mechanic shop & got the whole engine rebuilt and transmission, got my license at 16, my dad got a divorce and he never put it in my name or someone elses thinking she wouldnt take it bc it was a family loom and well she did.

    My family car growing up was a Dodge Dart for the longest time. Big piece of ****. I remember being a kid when the windshield busted all over my mom and me. I was pissed because glass went all over my lollipop. haha
