Whatever shape they take, and however many bumps in the road we may encounter with them, the independence they embody often means other cars just can’t come close. With that in mind, here’s a collection of first-car experiences that spans decades, and in which all of the cars are special in their own ways.

If the person asks me why, my reason is simple. Because the 1996 Silver Nissan Altima is the greatest car in the world. I do not kid; I genuinely believe the 1996 Silver Nissan Altima is the greatest automobile… Read More

My first car and the birthday blues
  Upon obtaining a learner’s permit most young adults begin shopping for their first car before even discussing it with their parents.
