83. a '77 'vette
Chevette that is! Sky blue and speckled rust four on the floor, no AC and a hole in the dash board where a radio should go! That car had CHARACTER. Took twenty minutes of driving to warm up--and the fan was so weak I had drive hunched over looking through that eight inch square of frost-free windshield until it cleared. And for the record; this was after I had scraped every inch of glass on the car--just to give it time to warm up--it'd freeze on the inside as soon as I started going down the road.

If it was below zero the transmission lubricant got so gummy I had to sit with my foot on the clutch for about ten minutes unitl it warmed up enough to to put in neutral.

You know what though? Sometimes I miss that piece of shit beater!
