I was sixteen when I got my first car. It was a red, 1983 Nissan Sentra in bad need of a paint job. The year was 1986 and I was a junior in high school. It was my first real taste of freedom. I could go anywhere $5 worth of gas would take me! I had a part-time job at McDonald’s and this car was everything! I think it was a big part of forming me into the responsible adult I am now. I remember my car note was like $190 per month and my entire monthly McDonald’s paycheck pretty much went to cover the payment! LOL! But it just made me want to work harder to be able to pay my car note AND have a social life. I spent every weekend hanging out with my friends and driving around parking lots of clubs that I was too young to actually get into. It was crazy fun! I put some miles on that little car! I searched the web and found a picture of a 1983 Nissan Sentra! This is exactly like my first car! Except for whatever that box is on top. . . .oh, the memories this brings back!
What was your first car?
