RE: Your First Car?

A fool and his Mustang II are soon parted, usually via tow truck.

RE: Your First Car?

I should have known better, as I had a checkered history with manual-transmission Fords, having launched a nearly-new 1964 Ford Galaxie convertible into the back wall of a garage when I was about six. Was waiting for a top-down ride, grew impatient (a trend with me) and tried to start the engine. The Ford had three on the tree, no starter/clutch interlock and was apparently in first gear. BAM! A large vise ate the driver's side headlights. I was a little pissed that they woudn't take me for the ride afterwards.

Your steller driving abilities are on showcase here. Your insurance rates must be very low.

My insurance company dropped me. I wasn't able to get liability coverage until I was 10.
