I'm the age of those who had malaise cars as their first. Mine was a crappy '79 Malibu, as malaise as it gets, a decrepit car handed down from my parents. It turned 10 when I turned 16. I won't bicker too much about it, though, because it delivered me to my first-ever Disc Golf course. And it was free. Yes, you generally get what you pay for.

Ugh, the memories of trying to start the damned thing and finding that fine line between not enough gas and flooding it!

Not all are like that, my dad had a split window VW Bus as his first vehicle but that was due to the second or third part of the gas crisis why the guy sold it in 1979 to have a reason to buy a Subaru 360 van or VW Mini buss, two of the oldest mass production minivans. I have seen pictures of my dad with the Van that was Seafoam Green or the Powder Blue and later had a crack in the window. His VW Buss however did not have the big skylight but that hard top did have all the side windows that the skylight VW Buses did.

My mom was one of these in 1981 having a 1970 Plymouth Valiant an old persons car, with the steering wheel column manual Shift, That 1970 Plymouth Valiant had so many problems it was on its last legs, but may mom said the best part was the car got called Jaws due to how the engine would do the something like the Jaws theme when in idyll. Dark purple that looks almost black was the color of the car.

First car I drove regularly was a 1968 Ford Custom 500. Weighed about a million pounds and lacked power steering. But it did have a satisfying punch when the 302 cubic inch (5L) engine kicked in.

First car I bought was a used, manual transmission, 1979 Toyota Corolla hatchback. Not exactly a zoomer - 75 horsepower - but that car reliably drove all up and down the east coast for water polo tournaments. Been driving stick ever since.

Either you knew of this show living though the 1970's or your parents lived through the 1970's and one of them showed you this really funny show. I am the latter.

That would be about the right time frame to have found it the show not get introduced by parents like most of my generation was.

Where you would stay up past midnight hoping to see some boob or have someone say s***!

I remember "Tank" with James Garner and he said "Ma'am that's the best f******g apple cobbler I ever tasted". God I laughed. Couldn't believe he used the F word. Now it barely compares to regular TV.
