For many people, especially guys, calling to mind their first cars is a trip down memory lane. They fondly recall details like “three on the tree” transmissions, tail fins and fold-down tops.
I am not nearly as nostalgic for a couple of reasons. One is that I’m much more of an animal person than a “motor head.” I’ve always been more interested in creatures with four legs than things with four wheels. For example, one of my favorite jobs on the farm was checking the cows on horseback. Conversely, one of my least favorite was raking hay.
