    Let's make a list of each Cyburbian's first car by year:

    I'll start.

    1984: Ford Mustang* (RandomPlanner)





    [not a great era for the Mustang...]

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Every day is today. Yesterday is a myth and tomorrow an illusion.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Red, 2 door, sunroof, 5 speed, more than a few aftermarket go fast parts...
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.

    My first was a 5-speed blue '87 Mustang hatchback with louvers on the back.

    It was a great first car, so much so that I still have the car. The joys of driving a 25 year old car. I learned to carry quarters, a change of clothes or coveralls, full set of mechanic tools, and most important comfortable walking shoes. I also had 4 full size spares in the trunk just in case.

    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
