I was age 14, still 3 years shy of N.J. legal minimum when I bought a Ford Anglia 105E for $35.00. It was pretty clean, but had water in the steering box and would only steer willingly to one side. My father rope towed it home for me with a very burly friend of ours steering, and me passenger. I had great plans for it, but a $14.00 used steering box and an opportunity for a $100.00 MG TD made me sell it, for $100.00. It took me several decades to make another profitable sale! Photo taken by Dad of me and TD on arrival, again by rope tow.....Traded the TD still as a project for a parts car Sunbeam Imp many years later!

In reply to TurnerX19 :

My first car I bought cost me $300 at age 14 was a 1953 MGTD, running, driving. (Briefly, 43 miles) 

Sitting down in my shop now? 1953  MGTD.  No the engine isn’t original.

Got my first car, a '62 Mercury Comet, for free from my grandfather who had been using it as his daily driver.

Traded it off for a '71 Torino GT after a year of driving it in high school.

In 2002 I bought a 91 Mustang GT from my dad for $4800. He had bought it in 95 for $12000. 

In 2017 I sold/traded it to my brother for about the same amount of money I paid to facilitate selling my first house. It sucks some, but he actually drives it and takes better care of it than I did.
