Nah, I broadsided her in a parking lot when she ran a stop sign. A very low speed collision.
I got about an inch and a half crease on the leading edge of the left front fender.
The Mustang II was towed.
The girls brother tried to shake me down for a few bucks. I laughed at him and told him I'd meet him in court with the accident report. Last I heard from any of them.

That's what my VW campers were for.

My first car was a 4 door 1983 Fiat 131s. Lots of fun til the transmission dropped from the car!
But my first new car was a 1986 Nissan 200sx turbo.

A 1964 Robin's egg blue & rust Plymouth Valiant, with a straight 6, 225 ci engine & 3 on the tree, that I bought from my paternal grandmother for $50. I drove that baby for a year until the freeze plugs rusted out, and I burned it up, because my grandfather never used anti-freeze in it. It was parked in their garage all winter long because my grandmother wouldn't drive in any sketchy weather.

1970 Olds Delta 88 with 455 Rocket motor. Only a 2 barrel but still did pretty good for a big ole boat and you could cram a lot of people in it!

A 1963 Plymouth Valiant with a slant 6 engine. It had a 3 speed manual transmission on the column. It was 4 years old when I got it in 1967. I loved that car.

1965 VW beetle with 300,000 miles on it. It was a handmedown; dad bought it new in 1965 for $1810. I paid $500 to get the third engine put in and a clutch.

I still miss that car. I think that car is the reason I prefer small cars like my sentry and the prizm before it.
