Baby, You Can Drive My Car

The goofballs at Car Talk have come up with a list of the Ten Worst Cars of the Millennium. The comments are hilarious. The fact that I owned one of these cars (and learned to drive in another) is sad.

    Let’s see…. I owned a #7, as my first car.
    You had a #5, I believe.
    Walter had a #3 and Jim had a #2. There. See? Revolver has this list down cold! And we survived them all, even the Pinto.
    (I went to school with buddies who owned a #4 and a #1, as well…. sheesh. And I still miss my VW Bug, the original style, a 1969 Super Beetle, which is kinda related to #10.)

    Venita and I BOTH each had a #5, and the comment about the shaking at around 55 was very, very true. I learned to drive in Mom and Dad’s #2. Which is an appropriate number for it…

    I bow before the brilliance that is Click and Clack, the Tappit (sp?) brothers. Or more, correctly, brothas.

    Click & Clack were the speakers at Mike’s MIT commencement in 1999 (they are both alumni). It was the only time in my life that I didn’t fall asleep during such a speech…they were hilarious!

    If he’d graduated a year sooner, we would have gotten Bill Clinton. I’ll take Click & Clack any day! 🙂

    I never owned or drove any of those cars…but I knew people who had some of them…most notably #2 and #3. ut Mike could tell you all about #1, since his ex-wife had one of those pieces of crap!

    Heh, I had a ’77 Pinto — this was the year that DIDN’T blow up; the ’76 and the ’78 did. It always made me wonder what they forgot to put into the car that year…

  6. Melissa says:

    My mom or dad owned a Pinto before I was born, so I can’t get blamed for that one, but I clearly remember riding around in a Chevette in my early years. It was lemon yellow. Appropriate color, eh?

    I’ve owned #2, #5, and #8. All GM products. All lemons, but I got each one at a really good price.

  9. I learned how to drive in a VW bus and a VW Rabbit. The bus was scary in a strong breeze.
