What was your first car?

My first car was a 1969 Chevy Bel Air. It had a brown and beige interior.

How did you acquire it?

I bought the car from my mom, who drove it for a while first. I’m still paying for it.

What is your favorite memory of the car?

Driving that car was always an event. I took a crash course for my driver’s license. Crash was the key word. There was not a curb or pole in Toronto that wasn’t hit by my Bel Air, hence the payments still to my mom.

What happened to it?

I broke it within a week and fixed it, then broke it, and fixed it, then broke it again, then fixed it, then broke it and finally I didn’t have any more money to fix it.
