First Car Meme.

Caught it from Rock In A Sea Of Chaos.

So here’s the meme. Long answers or short.
1. What was your first car? Model, year, color, condition?

Not my car, just an example.

1979 Dodge Aspen, apple green, brand new. Our family finally was in a decent economical position and Dad got a great deal for it.

2. What adventures did you have in it, good or bad? & 3. What happened to it, what’s the end of the story?

For me both questions go together. I pretty much learned how to drive in that car. I was a careless bastard who loved to do seriously stupid crap in it no matter how crazy the stunt. I was so bad, fellow college students refused to accept rides from me.  The car was very sensitive to wet pavement and after a couple of scares, I learned not to push the envelope during a rain which ended up saving my life. On May 13, 1979 on my way to college after going home from spending a rainy Mother’s day at home and while doing probably 30 mph on a very wet road, a drunk driver plowed on me. Before that day I never wore a seat-belt but that day my Guardian Angel whispered in my ear and I paid heed. The car was totaled after six months of ownership. I came out pretty much OK other than the belt bruise across my chest; the other driver went to the hospital & stayed there for 9 months. I never saw him again and to this date, if I see him I will deck his sorry ass for trying to kill me.
