    What was the first car that YOU bought?

    1st vehicle I bought - 1987 toyota tacoma 4x4 xtra cab ( another vote for the 22re engine) right off the dealer lot. I lived at home during college so my "rent" money that I saved allowed me to pay cash and drove that thing nearly 200k miles before selling.

    Dad's Stuff.

    Wish I had my dad's old hunting vest. My dad was an interpreter for the Italian war prisoners in WW2. One of the prisoners made him a hunting vest. He used that until the 90s when it just wore out. He stuffed a lot of pheasants and quail in that vest.
