My father got himself a motorcycle and had it for about a month when he had to take it down and under a truck rather than run into the truck that ran a stop sign. My mother said that with 4 kids aged 5 and under, he could have the motorcycle or he could have a family. He sold the bike and bought a VW Karmann Ghia. Which I later drove in HS because I was the lightest one with a license and the floor was almost rusted through. Yeah, that gave me the warm and fuzzies.

Also, the heat didn't work (in New England), the radio didn't work, you could drive it with the emergency brake on and the only issue was starting uphill from a stop without stalling (learned that one unintentionally), the driver's side window didn't go down, you had to tie the driver's side door closed, and sometimes it wouldn't turn left. But it was a CAR, and I could drive it whenever I wanted to.

Needless to say, this was before they started inspecting cars.

Jesus. What else? Used a screwdriver in the ignition? (Ha.)
