58. Malibu. Chevy Malibu.
Got it basically for free from my grandmother, drove it home from her city to mine. The fan belt broke on the way, in the middle of nowhere, and I bought an extra few miles by borrowing some pantyhose from my girlfriend to use instead.

Later the car developed some sort of ailment so that when I plugged in the block heater, it electrified the entire car and you couldn't touch it without getting a fairly substantial shock.

Eventially the water pump broke and, after trying to replace it (out on the highway, again miles from nowhere), I left it where it lay and I suppose it was towed away at some point.

Pretty classic early-20s behaviour, all around.
