    Did you deliberately exclude Schmoopy by making this about owned cars?

    Not a story, but a good memory

    When I was 16, my dad bought me a brand new Firebird. It was a trans am, white with red and black pinstripes. I was soooo cool and rock n roll driving around the neighborhood in that car. It was and will always be my favorite car.
