My First Car

Take a trip down memory lane with some of your favorite athletes and music artists.

We love our cars, and we have some very vivid memories — some good and some not so good — about our first cars. Mercury’s My First Car series pulls back the curtain to reveal personal stories and experiences from some of your favorite athletes and music artists, because for most of us, our first cars were much more than just transportation.

Check out the stories below, and while you’re here, get a fast, free quote from Mercury. It only takes a few minutes, and you could save a few hundred dollars on your insurance!

My First Car: Music Edition

Music and cars have been tied together since the first radios were installed more than 90 years ago. Whether we are listening to songs about driving, or driving while listening to great music, it almost feels like you can’t have one without the other. Take a look at what some of music’s biggest stars have to say about their first cars!

Anaheim Ducks: My First Car

Not surprisingly, many athletes buy fancy new cars with their first professional paycheck. These videos do not tell those stories. Instead, take a moment to learn about the beaters, hand-me-downs and family vans these pros drove before they were Ducks.

Watch My First Car videos of your favorite Anaheim Ducks players!
