My first truck.....






Yesterday, Lee was working late and asked me if I could take Garrett to soccer practice. At practice, I noticed a man pull up in this 1985 Nissan truck, I think it was Midnight blue mist. Back in the day, I bought this truck brand new from K.H. Nissan Motors in 1984, my first year in college. I am not exactly sure of the exact amount I paid for it, however, my monthly payment was $157.18. The only extra I had on it was an air conditioner. I put a Pioneer AM/FM cassette tape player, 2 pairs of Pioneer speakers along with a 100 watt amp....yeah, I thought I was bad.
Well, 25 years later, 430,000 miles later....I see it again. It brought back a bunch of good memories. I was so excited to see it.
I would be interested in what was the first car/truck you bought and anything else you tell me about.....

Awesome. That is just the thing my Steve talks about. His old vehicles all have a place in his history of good memories. Pretty cool you were able to come upon it so many years later. We've had a couple of old jalopies around here. They make the best vehicles if you ask me. :) Hugs. Tammy

It was a black, 2 door, '78 Buick Regal.

I felt the same way with my first car. My first set of wheels was a silver Honda Civic. Although I had to let it go, driving that car around was really fun. I wonder if it's still being used.
