LIFE is full of firsts, some of them are memorable while others don't make much of an impression.

For any auto enthusiast, the memory of that first car lasts forever.

Many of those first vehicles are not around for very long while others become lifelong partners. Matt Stone has gathered a fascinating selection of stories from a wide variety of drivers who share their recollections of that first car and the freedom it brought with it.

There are accounts from racers like the iconic Mario Andretti who remembers his 1957 Bel Air or Steve McQueen who enjoyed racing as much as his film career and made an MG TC his first car purchase.

There are 65 profiles featured along with photos in this entertaining account. Stone divides them into five categories: Racers, Titans of the Auto Industry, Stars of Stage, Screen and Sound, Athletes, and Journalists, Artists and Others.
