My first car was a maroon 1987 Honda Accord that I got for Christmas shortly after my 17th birthday. It was a hand-me-down from my step-mom and it had a manual transmission. I had learned on automatic cars, so I had to learn to drive it before I could have it. Talk about motivation! I drove stick until we moved to San Diego when I decided I just didn’t have the nerve to let out the clutch while stopped at the top of some 80 degree hill.

What was your first car?
