Well being a young buck my first chevy was a 1994 silverado z71 that I bought used. It had a good paint job and ran great with the 70k miles it already had on it. Me being a young country boy I had the loudest pipes I could find on it and hit every mud hole I could find. It was sunk in water 2 times, rolled down a sand hill once, I was rearended by a school bus at a stopsign (the bus had more damage), and side swiped by a drunk driver. All it ever needed was a little bit of body work. I ragged the hell out of that truck and it never missed a step. I put another 50k miles on it and it still ran strong and would go anywhere you pointed it. I sold it to my little brother when I joined the Marine Corps and 2 months later it was totaled. I cried a little in private and to this day wish I had never gotten rid of that truck. I bought a nissan titan after that and quickly traded it for an 03 Ford lightning (which I love) but I still miss my old Z.

Why, I remember when....

Just thinking about the Chevys in my life takes me back to about 1962...I was just a young feller then (about 9, I think!) and being from a big family, we always had station wagons. We had a '57 Chevy wagon then and there were big rust holes in the floorboards; I remember watching the road going by between my feet! I got in trouble when I threw my sister's doll through the hole and we all jumped in the back seat to watch it bounce down the road behind us....60's entertainment at it's best! Fast forward through the next 43 years and I can't remember how many Chevys, and the 2010 Camaro gets built next week!

My best "Chevy" memory was pulling my buddy's Ford Ranger AND his boat (which was taking on water) that was on the attached trailer, up the boat ramp and out of the water with my '99 silverado 1500 4x4. And what really got my buddy was I stayed in 2 wheel drive.

My first car was a 1970 Monte Carlo with a 402 big block. My husband, who was my boyfriend in high school, had a 71 Chevelle SS454 convertible that he ended up trading for a 69 Z28. We use to spend all of our extra money buying parts to make our cars faster. I remember my mom getting mad at me because I use to keep car parts in my bedroom. We hung out with a group of guys that were really into their cars. We would all go up to the drag strip and race all day long. My dad would even come along with his 69 Nova. I have some very fond memories of those days and I wouldn't trade them for anything...

I had a 1982 Chevette with a homemade kicker box with two 15” subs and a 500 watt amp that filled the entire hatchback area. One day I played some 2 Live Crew so loud I shattered the glass on the hatch back.

A year later I got run over by a front end loader at a construction site, which pretty much totaled it. I towed it home and after some work with my dads welder and a sledge hammer I got it drivable again, however not legal. Then I proceeded to take it to the local gravel pit and trashed the hell out of it, rolled it a couple times, left it there, then walked home.

Well, I've got kind of a long story, so here it goes:

My dad has had:
-1954 Ford (free car by neighbor)
-1972 Vega
-1967 Camaro RS/SS (which he sold in parts)
-19XX Volkswagen
-19XX Jeep
-1982 Camaro (turned into an IROC-Z clone)
-1986 Corvette
-1969 Camaro RS/SS (daily driver)
-199X S10
-Motorcycle
-1998 S10
-1971 Corvette Stingray
-2002 F150

In the future, I'm expecting:
-1969 Mustang Fastback (father/son project, and since he's already had two first-gen Camaros, he wants a change)
-201X Z28 (if ever made)

But, here's where it really began:
Way back in the magical year of 1995, my dad spent 6 long, grueling months looking for a 1969 Camaro. It had to have A/C and it had to have hideaway headlights. One day, he comes across this total beater about 50 miles from our house, and he bought it. He spent 10 years fixing it up into one of the greatest '69 Camaro's out on the road. It's almost fully loaded (sans tilt steering wheel and something else), it's a mean green with white stripes, and it's packing a hurtful 489.
It seemed only natural I get my own Camaro to keep up the family tradition, but it wasn't until this time last year I decided on getting a fourth-gen f-body. Prior to that, I wanted a classic Nova, but I saw a '96 firebird outside my school every day and I decided that's what I really wanted. My mom suggested looking into Camaros since they were very similar, and I saw an early fourth-gen Camaro, and changed my mind to that for a while. A few months later, a junior at my school started to drive his late fourth-gen Camaro, and that's what I ultimately decided to get. In April, I started looking for my car to have ready for when I got my permit. I spent around two months looking for on craigslist, recycler, and auto trader, and I finally came across the Grape Ape on the latter. I drove 90 minutes out to Canoga Park not even sure we'd take it. My dad spent two hours negotiating, and we finally got the guy down to $3600. Needless to say, we were at the bank in under 15 minutes, and the AAA office in 30. The car was mine.

Red face The Story of a '78 Malibu

Well, as a 34 year old man, a serious lurker of these forums, and a die hard chevy/camaro guy I couldn't pass up this thread.

My very first car was the first car I ever sat in the driver's seat of. In 1978 as a soon to be three year old, my parents custom ordered a 1978 Chevrolet Malibu V6 with leather interior, upgraded stereo (aka AM/FM Cassette) and a three speed on the floor. When that car was delivered I remember being at the dealership as a two year old boy standing in the driver's seat and accidentally hitting the horn. I actually remember it scaring the living daylights out of me. I can remember my dad laughing soflty at it, but still checking on me. It is the earliest memory I have.

As you can guess, the first car I ever drove was that '78 Malibu. It is how I learned how to drive, and since it was a stick shift, I didn't know that there was any other type of transmission. In the summer of 1991 with a learner's permit in my wallet, and my dad in the passenger seat, two VERY nervous guys went on the trip of a lifetime. The road trip started in Baltimore, MD, and our first stop was in Cooperstown, NY (the baseball Hall of Fame). From there we visited Niagra Falls, NY, and stayed the night in Buffalo, NY. This was my first time ever driving a car, and it was a stick shift (with a very stiff clutch as I remember). Our next stop was Canton, OH to visit the football Hall of Fame. We checked it out, and somewhere in West Virginia I relinquished the steering wheel to him (minus a few times he was driving in the state of NY where Dad got a speeding ticket, lol).

Fast forward to 1992. I am a 17 year old boy, a senior in high school, with divorced parents, but a very close connection with my dad (I did not live with him). As a typical teenager I think I NEED a car. So my dad buys a new car and gives me, you guessed it, the 1978 Chevy Malibu (now with 185,000 original miles on it). That car made me a Chevy boy/man. A sad day would come on 12-25-92 (that same year). My dad was killed in a single car accident in his new car (Mazda MX6). That car (the Malibu) that lasted for so long, and so many miles was STILL around. I made sure it was driven in the procession, and as a 17 year old I somehow was not denied driving it in that procession. That car NEVER let me down, and though it had its issues, was a very reliable car, and a part of some GREAT memories. I traded it in that year (mainly from family pressure) for a more reliable car to go to college.

What I neglected to mention was that for a short period of time, my Uncle (Dad's brother) had a 1980/1 (not sure I was 5, lol) Chevy Camaro Berlinetta while he was in the Navy. The car was left in my Nana's care while he was deployed in Okinowa, Japan (the years are vague, but I think it is '82/'83). I remember as a little boy talking her into driving it to get the mail (Uncle Michael said it need to be started and run every so-often). My favorite part was asking her to rev the engine, and to my delight she would! Later on my dad would buy the car from Uncle Mike and eventually wreck it. In fact I remember joking with my Dad about how it would be my first car. I remember now that it had to be a V8 just by the sound I remember it having.

My Nana (88) is still around and we still have fond memories of those days. That Malibu, and that Berlinetta are a part of me. That Malibu ended up going over 225,000 miles before getting traded in, and it was driven to the dealer for trade in late 1993 like it always had... not towed.

The whole Chevrolet experience has influenced me so much that I bought a '95 Camaro V-6, 5-speed brand new. I have since had a '97 Monte Carlo, an '01 Tahoe, and most importantly an '02 Camaro SS which I drive today (bought brand new). I was proud to drive one of the last Camaros ever to have been produced, but now I am eager to drive one of the new 5th generation Camaro's which has yet to be built.

Thank you GM, and Chevrolet for memories that will be a part of mine, and my childrens' lives forever.

The list is longer than I have time at the moment. It will be a good test though, to go back and list them as others have done. I have had lots.

However just a quick note.

I owned 5 ( yes 5) 1972 Chevrolet C10 Shortbed Stepsides at one time.

Thought the wife was going to kill me when the last 3 showed up on the same day.

My Chevy story starts before I was born, I am told I was conceived in the backseat of a 55 Chevy. I was born 6 months after Mom and Dad where married and weighed 8lbs (pretty big to be 3 months premature-huh)

I had a toy pedal car as a child it was a Mustang-never liked the damn thing and wanted a Camaro. I remember as a child I loved Camaros, and no one in the family had one and I had never been around one.

As a teenager I wanted one bad, but could not afford one, I turned 16 in 1980 and bought a 68 Nova (6 cy 3 on the tree) for $400, it wasn't a Camaro but at least a Chevy. I didn't keep it long and traded for a 75 Nova with a bad motor. In 4 years I had 3 different engines, 4 transmissions and 2 rear-ends in it. It kept me in trouble. It was a small block 4 speed and I did alot of drag racing. It is still one of my favorite cars. I finally saved up enough money, sold the Nova and bought my first Camaro- 67 RS/SS 350 4 speed. This car stayed in the family 17 years. Since then I have had 17 F-Bodies of all generations except the 5th. I want one bad but with one son in college and the other will be next year I have to put it on hold for awhile. Maybe I can run upon a wrecked one after they have been out a year or so, or wait until the boys are out of college.

I have purchased 7 new vehicles in my life, all of them had a bowtie in the grill. I am biased and I know it, I can't help it. Both of my boys are also riding Chevies. My oldest is riding a Colbalt SS and my youngest a Z-R2. Hell even my company car is a Chevy, when I first started with the company 19 yrs ago they gave me a Ford, as soon as I had a choice I got a Chevy and I have had a Chevy Company car ever since.

I have had plenty of other cars over the years but I always come back. My wife had to have a Honda a few years ago. She got over that she is riding an Avalanche now.

Growing up in the suburbs of Detroit, my entire family worked for GM. Every division, every brand, was covered, some engineers, some line workers, needless to say the whole family drove GM products. My Dad retired in 2003, from Pontiac Motor Division with 41 yrs, my Grandfather also retired from PMD with 30 yrs, my mom worked in the engine plant (plant 8) for 8 yrs, even while pregnant with my younger brother. I'm kind of a car nut, I've had over 350 in my 42 yrs on this earth, but my first Chevy was my favorite. It was a Marina Blue 65 Chevelle, I bought from my dad for $700, it had a million mile 307 in it, used to have to put at least a quart of oil in it every day, before I sold it I installed a 64 425 horse 409 in it, ran it one time at the track (11.94) and got "banned" for it. I'll never forget that car though. Got my first "booty call" in that car! Fun was had by all! I loves my GM products, I currently have 7, and I'm sure I won't be stopping anytime soon.
