  1. Very nicely done, my friend…(my first car was a ’53 Ford convertible – flat head six – manual shift on the column – black). Maybe some of the other folks here who respond can tell us what THEIR first car was – I’d bet it’d be an interesting (and eclectic) list. 🙂

  2. A very neat job with a beautiful paint finish, well done, Cetin. The first car I actually owned was a 1966 MG Midget in Oxford blue, I thought it was the bees’ knees at the time.

  3. Nice work, the finish really shows a car in use for several years. Not as shiny yet still in good condition. My 1st car is a 1964 Chevy Corvair Monza Coupe in burgundy. I still have it.

  4. My favorite old-timer, I very much like the seats in this one! Fab build, çetin!

  5. Good looking build! It really has a look of authenticity, not a toy.

  6. A very nice build! First car, a 1971 Jeepster Commando.

  7. First car I owned was a 1952 MG-TD I restored. Bought it for $500, put $600 into the restoration and sold it for $1,800, which financed leaving for California (only to discover 10 years later I should have held onto it, when I ran across one not as original as mine was selling for $17,500!).

  8. Great work, it’s nice to see this kit build with a realistic look. Just wonderful.
    Aahh my first car, just after getting my drivers licence in 1980, was a 1976 Volkswagen Polo.

  9. Really well done! My 1st car was in 1968; a 1962 Chevy Impala Super Sport convertible. Maroon with white top, black interior. 327 Cu, inch, 350 horse with 2 ea. 2-barrel carbs on a special manifold. 0-65mph (0-105kph) in 5.2 seconds. I still miss it. My next car was a ’67 Corvair Monza.

  10. A bit late to this party, but taking up the quest; My first car was a Bedford RLHC Airport Fireengine (Crashtender) with a 350cu in Perkins diesel, 2000 liter water tank, 400 liter foamagent and a watercannon on the top!

    Nice Mercer @cetinsarf!

    And yes, I still own it, albeit it is in Greenland where I bought it.
