What was your first car and what memories are lovingly associated with it?

The Car: Mine was a 1968 Ford LTD, Gulfstream Aqua color with an 8 track player, speakers in the doors. . It was a big huge ride that was almost seaworthy. In fact the horn sounded like “eeee-oooo” instead of beep beep. OK, I made that up, but still she was a boat.

Favorite Memory: The transmission failed in Wisconsin on a return from a road trip. Couldn’t drive over 55 MPH and there was no reverse gear, making it rather interesting to get out from the rest stop on the way home.

What’s your favorite from your first car?
