This week’s Random Factoid Friday is #32 on the list, episode #2. The subject…first vehicles. My first vehicle was a 1979 Datsun pickup. If you’re not aware, Datsun is now Nissan. My father made me a generous offer…he said, “son, however much money you can save, I will match it.” Being in high school I was chomping at the bit to get my first car, so I only saved for about 6-7 months. I saved about $1700, and as promised, my Dad wrote me a check for $1700. I paid $3200 for my first vehicle with just enough left over for insurance.
So, my question to you is…what was your first vehicle? Was it new or used? How did you pay for it? I look forward to reading your comments.
