I don't know why, but today I thought about the first car I ever had.

It just came to my mind and I can see it like it is right here with me. My mom and dad got me a 1971 Cutless two door, brown with a white top. Dad put some mufflers on for me and I was rockin'. I loved that car and wish I still had it.

That is the thing about cars. If you really like, no, if you really love the car, it will be in your memory forever. Or at least until you are 57 years old, like me. Two doors, one 8 track tape player, great sounding mufflers, it's all you need. Thanks Mom and Dad!
