For today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt, the prompt is “yesterday’s car.” All that I could think of for this prompt was my first car, a 1961 Chevy Corvair Monza, pretty much like the one pictured below.
When I was about 18, my parents handed down to me their 1961 Monza. I believe they gave it to me right about the same time that consumer advocate Ralph Nader first published his book, “Unsafe at Any Speed,” a book that basically condemned the Corvair as a death trap. Hmmm.
It really was a POS car. It was so bad that, because of its bronze color, my friends dubbed it the “golden garbage can.” But, given that it didn’t cost me anything, I did have some fond memories of yesterday’s car. As they say, you never forget your first car.
Hey, I know. Why don’t you take a minute to tell us about your first car?
