I got my very first car in 1983 when I became a freshman at the University of Bridgeport. You’re going to gasp; but, it was a very ugly, tan, 1969 Plymouth Valiant! It had all kinds of dents etc. I cried when my father said, “I’ll take it!” I had no say in it at all. However, I actually grew to love it because it ran well, was reliable, & nice to drive. There were many cars being stolen; so, I soon became glad that it was so darn ugly!
