Four Vehicles I’ve Owned:

I've never owned a car until I got married when, legally, my wife's car became our car. When I started college, my parents gave me the choice of a computer or a used car and I went with the computer....

1. An battery-powered car made by a family friend in the early 1970s (imagine a 4x2 foot piece of plywood with four bicycle wheels, one seat, and handle bar steering on a metal frame. I think it could go about 5 mph and could run about an hour before the battery needed to recharge overnight. We got it when I was four and I was too heavy for it by the time I was eight)
2. 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme (an old car that my parents kept around as a second car--my dad had a government supplied car for work).
3. 1995 Dodge Neon (the car my wife had when we got married)
4. 1999 Mustang (not a car we'd have normally bought, but my wife's offloaded it on us for cheap when they went nomadic)

Awwwwww. You know, you never did send me your address so I could send you your Found T-Shirt, which since Christmas came and went has now morphed into a Ben's Chili Bowl T-Shirt. So get on the stick, fella.

I drove my parents' 1973 Cutlass Supreme into the ground during college. What a nice car that was, and I treated it so badly. sigh.

That '71 Cutlass Supreme was a great car, except for the gas mileage. We lived 5 miles out of town, so a trip to pretty much anywhere burned a gallon of gas. It run until 1991, though.
