My first car

I'm not sure why but I was feeling nostalgic today for my first car, a 1967 Chevrolet Caprice. My dear mother let her 16 year old son buy it. Which mother wouldn't?? It cost me $700. Car insurance was negligible under the new socialist NDP government of BC (thank you Dave Barrett!). Would you just look at those chromed wheels and the cool white walls?
