My 1st car was '76 Maverick that I paid $800 for in 1984. I literally spent more on the stereo I put in it.

Aahhh.... to be young and able to spend money frivolously again.






Then again, the stereo did last longer than the car.

'71 Mustang Grande. Big fat engine -I think it was a 302...I delivered pizza in that bad boy. Front wheels were stock, back were the Crager Solar 10 rims. I could only afford the two, you know.

Tootsie Roll Brown, faded to a true Doo Doo Brown. Fabric upholstery was shredded like Ricky Bobby's daddy's car must've looked after the cougar was done with it...

8-track player. KISS Double Platinum on constant play. Great Jensen speakers, though.

The only disc I had ever thrown was a freestyle on the beach. And I was good at it. I'm sure Olde-Tymers hated my guts back then...

I wonder if my old 79 Grenada with so much smoke coming out the back that I used to pull in front of buses (For a little payback), could have outrun your Maverick?

'74 Maverick. The nicest thing anyone ever said about it was "as least you aren't driving a Pinto." It lasted me seven years, but eventually there was no more fixing it without replacing the engine. Leaving it at the junkyard was one of the saddest days of my life.

30 years later a little bit of it is still on my desk.



Now thinking back on it, I have no idea how I lived through seven years of driving that deathtrap.

My first car was a 65 chevelle and I paid a case of beer for it. Let's just say I got my money's worth. The trunk was dinged up and had to be tied down with a rope. It had no reverse. It was kind of a drag looking for places I could park without having to get out and push.

I once took that car on a 3-hour road trip to a Pink Floyd concert, and had to stop and tighten a bolt to slow down a headgasket leak that was dripping oil onto the exhaust manifold. Naturally I snapped the head off the bolt, made the leak worse, and had to limp into a shop to get help. The friends riding with me were sure regretting their choices. We did make it to the concert eventually!

You sure you want your daughter to learn to drive a stick?
