When I was a JW, I had two cars: a 1958 MGA coupe, and later a 1965 Corvair Monza Convertible that was unsafer with me driving it than most people at any speed. God a hundred thousand miles out of that Corvair, the last 25,000 with it pumping oil up the dipstick and onto the engine. (I was a student. Whaddya want? a real car?) Now it's a Ford F-150 extended cab truck, 'cause I can get into and out of it easily with a broken back.
