Reply to "Car = Personality??"

GREAT additional questions, Geddy! YAY!

This first car I ever drove was when I was 11....my 18 year old brother had a '69 Pontiac Catalina convertible! Her name was Ragtop Annie, and she was a LAND YACHT!!!!! lol Seriously, you didn't DRIVE this car somewhere....it just kind of FLOWED. HAHAHAHA!! DEFINITE smooooooothness!

I was a late driver and didn't get my license till I was 19 when my dad called me up out of the blue telling me he'd bought me a car, so I'd better come back to New Mexico to get it. OK! So I get there, and it's a 1981 Ford Escort WAGON. Here's the catch: dad got it for $200 because of HAIL damage!! That's right....my first car had 4" diameter hail dents all over the top and hood. Oh, and the back window had been busted out, but good 'ol dad had already replaced that for me. (but DIDN'T clean up all the broken glass in the back....yup, that's my dad) I named him Phil and he lasted for 6 months, at which time I traded him in for the only thing a poor 20 year-old could afford: a 1984 Mercury Lynx WAGON. (seeing a trend here?) For those who don't know, these two vehicles look EXACTLY the same, exept that the Mercury is the "luxury" model! LOL And yes, I DID name him
Phil Jr.!!

BTW Mona, during my "black phase" I very nearly painted Phil Sr. BLACK! lol Craziness....

We're totally ashamed that we're SUV owners. All the GAS we use is terrible. But it was FREE and bailed us out of a jam.....Chris drives about 20 miles to his work, and I drive 28 in the OPPOSITE direction, so we needed something QUICK! We're going to buy a hybrid car to try to balance our environmental karma!
