What was your first car?
My first car was a 2001 silver Acura RSX.
How did you acquire it?
My parents got it for me when I was 16. I nicknamed her Sexy Lexi the RSXy, which I thought was really funny. Turns out, it wasn’t that funny and it doesn’t even really rhyme.
What is your favorite memory of the car?
I loved that car so much. We had some great times. I brought it with me when I moved from Florida to California. I learned to drive on the 405 in that car, fell in love for the first time in that car and had way too many dance parties in there. I think my favorite memory in that car was my boyfriend and first love teaching me how to drive in California. I was so scared and was screaming at the top of my lungs that people were going to run me over – but he was very patient with me. I am now a pretty good driver if I do say so myself.
What happened to it?
We sold it. It was a very sad day. It was time to say goodbye to Lexi but she was a good friend to me.
