Someone mentioned the posibility of obtaining a Chevy Malibu the other day and I was transported back to my first car. It was a blue 1971 Chevy Malibu that I purchased after many hours of work from my job cashiering at Super Saver grocery store. It was a whopping $500 dollars. What a wonderful machine and I really loved driving around in it with “Imperial Bedroom” by Elvis Costello playing in the tape deck (I barrowed this and much of my music from my friend Matt). I pinned a velvet tapestry of Elvis (Hawaiian period) to the ceiling so that it appeared like he was riding in the back seat. For some reason we thought that it was a good idea to name our cars. Mine had many names, but the one that I remember the most fondly was “Hot Burnin Cauldron of Funk.”
Slowly everything about the transmission failed and the cost of fixing it was more than the car was worth, but sometimes I wish I still had that sweet ride.
What was your first sweet ride?
