What Was Your Favorite Car or Truck?
Can I go Ahead and Say, All My Cars Were My Favorite?
I guess I get to go first. By far my favorite car I have ever driven was, my first car. I was 16 years old in high school, and my mom remarried. My stepdad had a 1969 red Volkswagen Karman Ghia, I was in love. Granted my older brother had driven this car a couple of years before me. Now it was my turn.
Not only did I drive it to school, but also to my first job. I was in Heaven. I basically had no rules, (that quickly changed), but to drive it to school and to work
After my second wreck in the car, and after two whole years of this as my high school car, my stepdad told me to buy my own car and insurance.
Looking back that was only fair.
My second car was even way cooler than the VW Karman Ghia. At least to this high school student who had to scrape his pennies together for gas, a car, and insurance. Not necessarily in that order either. It was almost like a Christmas verse. I looked up and what did I see? A 1968 AMC Javelin. It was red with a white stripe, white interior, with wide wheels in the back, and skinny tires in the front. This is the one.
The money I had saved to buy the Javelin, paid for: one tank of gas and six months’ worth of car insurance. What could go wrong? Famous last words. I graduated high school in this car, and now off to college. I only had one car wreck in college.
The Campus Police were knocking on my college dorm room at 1:00am. As it turned out, I left the car in neutral, and the car slowly rolled in the parking lot, strickling another vehicle. The damage was minor, and me and the fellow student worked out a deal. All I remember was, he had a keg party on my “dime”. Oddly enough we became friends after that.
