This was my first car, inherited from my mother.

I remember one night, working late at Perkins, Jeremy Wheater and I decided to race home.  It was approximately an 11 mile stretch back to Sparta from the restaurant.  I had my '86 Blue Chevy Cavalier Station Wagon, and he had his '86 Blue Chevy Cavalier.  It was an nice, even match up.  We took off at the same time.  He got stopped by all red lights.  I got stopped by blue and red lights -- the cops again!

My 1995 Chevrolet S-10 (Extended Cab)

After the Grand Am, we were on the hunt for a car yet again.  Lisa had always said every family needs a pickup; probably because her father always had one, so we went shopping for a pickup.  We settled on the S-10, bought for $8k from a guy in Ocean Lakes.

The S-10 was tons of rear-wheel fun, and came with a V6 Vortec; more than enough to get me around.  The pedal went down, the engine when vroom, and the truck went fast.  I used to love losing traction into a corner, getting sideways, then sliding into the perfect spot.  I impressed even myself driving the S-10.
