My First Car: 1969 Dodge Super Bee, Mike J. Giammarino, 62, St. Petersburg

’69 Dodge Super Bee

I was a 17-year-old junior at Lakewood High School with a license and a burning desire for a fast car. I found this car in 1973 and bought it with my after-school job money for $750. I think back and it still surprises me that my somewhat conservative parents would allow me to buy a muscle car as my first car. The car was equipped with a 383, 4-speed, 3.55 posi rear end. The speedometer went to 160, but of course I wouldn’t know how fast it might go. That’s me in the picture.
