I forgot - when I was 14/15, a friend and I split the $50 cost on an AMC Gremlin that was in a junkyard. We had it flatbedded to his house where we ran it through the woods and fields for most of a summer. We would crash that sucker through all sorts of undergrowth, taking the oil pan off only once! When we finally toasted the clutch we sold it back to the junkyard for 25 bucks.

The first car you ever owned. Was it a Bimmer? Was it your favorite of all you have had since? Do you have great memories of it, compared to the current experiences in our Bimmers?

Me, It was a '76 Mercury Cougar XR7, loaded, got it when I was 19 in '78. It was a beautiful cruiser. I could haul-ass for hours on it's 26 gal tank, with four friends to boot! My current '95 525ia is a fantastic machine. Other than someone else paying for it, I really can't think of any other car I would like right now. As far as memories, I've only had this(my first)BMW for 6 months. But so far, so good!
