My first car was a 1974 For Maverick "Grabber." Via Instapundit, I found some photos of my old vehicle.
I still have dreams about that car -- not always good ones. No air conditioning, the seat belts didn't always work, and the suspension would vibrate terribly at around 70 mph. The cure for that, of course, was to drive 80 mph (or faster) and it smoothed right out. With a 302cc engine, it had plenty of power for that. What a ride for a 17-year-old. :-)
