The Rambling Wreck of Georgia Tech is effectively represented. Vehicles certain are a giant a part of our lives aren’t they? Who remembers their first automobile vividly? I certain do. It was a used 1971 Plymouth Fury, darkish brown 4 door and imagine me once I say it was butt ugly. I feel I paid $600 or $800 for that automobile, it was all the cash I had saved up and will afford. I used to be proud to have a automobile, however I didn’t hold it too lengthy. I ended up buying and selling it in after a couple of yr once I went to school for a 1973 Pontiac Grand Prix, in burgandy with a white vinyl prime. Oh how I liked that automobile! This seems similar to my Grand Prix.
