Your first car is like your first kiss. Even if it was terrible, below even your worst expectations, you're going to remember pretty much every detail about it. You'll remember if the car had good gas mileage, how good it was to drive, what its funny little idiosyncrasies were, or if it simply couldn't pick up your favorite radio station no matter what you did. You'll remember every ding and dent you put in it, and all the adventures you had with it. You'll recall whether you let other people drive it and exactly how much you regretted it. You'll remember how it came into your possession: whether it was a beloved and much-appreciated gift, whether it was something you bought for yourself after months of sweating bullets to earning money, or whether it was a hand-me-down from a sibling or cousin.
Sure, your first car probably saw better days, but it gave you the freedom that nothing could match. Tell us about yourself, and we'll see if we can guess precisely what trusty ride represented that important time in your life!
