Q: What was your first car?

• Rep. Phil Hare (D-Ill.): “A 1955 Chevy. I’m going to really sound old. It was kind of turquoise and white. I think I paid $350 for it, but I traded it for a 1954 Nash station wagon. I went from a car I thought was a collector’s item to a car that looked like an upside-down bathtub.”

• Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.): “In college it was a Buick Riviera, something green. It was old but was nice. It was a car I always wanted. My dad surprised me with it. I was one of the few people in college with a car. It was the campus favorite.”

• Rep. Susan Davis (D-Calif.): “A little Dodge. I didn’t have a car until I went to work after college. I think it was white. It was small.”

• Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.): “It was a blue Ford Taurus. I was in college, and the license plate I got was YK2000. Everybody thought — because Rhode Island is known for vanity plates — it stood for ‘Young Kennedy 2000’ and that I was going to run for something in 2000. It was total coincidence.”

• Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.): “My first car was a — what year was it? It was a ’72. I think it was either a Monte Carlo or an Impala — essentially the same car. The color — is rust a color? It stopped moving on its own before I got rid of it. It had a water pump issue, meaning I had to be a human water pump. I don’t know whether I was driving it or it was driving me.”
