What Was Your First Car?
"A Chevy Blazer that, to go straight, you had to hold your hands vertically. It smelled terrible because I would sweat in it."
"An old Toyota Celica with a smashed windshield—so smashed that I had to pick a crack to look through to see the road."
"An '87 Toyota Tercel. It was a hand-me-down from my two older sisters. They both drove it, and then I got it. After that I told my dad, 'I gotta get a truck.' "
"A 1974 Volvo. I bought it from a neighbor for 50 bucks. But the car didn't go in reverse!"
