Make the Shift
Every girl dreams of her first car…

Do you remember your first car?

At 18, I was the proud owner of a used 5 speed Chevy Chevette in faded cherry red…I know, it didn’t quite match the car of my teenage dreams.  However, my car made me famous.  It quickly captured the nickname of my “Flintstone Mobile”, because after a year, the driver side floor board rotted out leaving a gaping hole for my feet to touch the road.  I could literally motorize the vehicle with my running ability just like Fred Flintstone!

This certainly made for interesting travel during the snowy Michigan winters and slushy springs.
