Question of the Day

Following up on yesterday’s…

What was the first car or motor vehicle that was registered in your name?

The first car that was mine in my name was a 1973 Ford F-150 pickup that I bought, with my parents’ help, from Donaldson Ford in Maumee, Ohio, in August 1973. It was bare-bones — six cylinders, three-on-the-tree, AM radio, no A/C — and we paid $2,778 for it. That is the one and — so far — only time I’ve ever bought a “new” car, i.e. first owner.
