Just wondering what your first set of wheels was... How long you kept it, and what (if anything) you then got to replace it. Mine was a used, white '82(?) Ford Laser Generic image only. My beloved Laser was much more ...rustic. That Laser had no A/C. No audio. Manual steering, window cranks, everything. I carried around a wooden mop handle to prop up the rear door when accessing the 'trunk'. Body was practically rustflakes held together by paint. Steering wheel was very light though, as was the car itself. The car could accelerate and maneuver like a bat out of hell, and I do miss it badly. Had it for 4+ years, until parts started falling off while I drove (fender, etc) then I started driving a Nissan Sentra 1.6 sedan that was much more comfy, but to me had no soul. It was a thirsty little beast too. h.
