Real Stories From The Muscle Car Fans First Car 71 Plymouth

This from John C who lived in Bloomington MN at the time of his story. Thanks for the story John.
First car

When I turned 16 I bought a 71 Plymouth Satellite Sebring.   Paid $700 for it with paper route money and a small loan from my dad.  Mild 318 with a Carter carb with a sticky automatic choke.  Other than driving with the air cleaner cover upside down, I did nothing to boost the performance.  I did, however, buy aluminum slots for the front and chrome rims with baby moons in the back, sporting off-brand 60s with raised white letters, of course.  I learned the wonderful world of Bondo.  I had it painted Rallye Red at Maaco and did the interior myself in leopard skim cloth I bought at the fabric store.  Leopard skin on the dash, the back deck, the sun visors and on the seats, secured by Dritz twist pins.  I jacked it up using leaf spring extender lift kits.  Leaving Bridgemans Drive-in one night, I was pulled over by a Richfield cop, who broke out the measuring tape and found I was jacked up too high.  Getting that fix it ticket was a point of pride which I showed off to my friends.  Then I lowered the car a notch to satisfy the gendarmes.  My friend Curt had a 68 Mustang GT 390, Doug had a 73 Fury, Steve had a 54 Chrysler New Yorker, Terry has access to his parents' Gremlin, and Hornhead had a project V8 Vega constantly under construction in the garage.  Jeff had a 74 Dart with Keystone Klassics, a fresh paint job, a kick ass stereo, and headers which were a bitch to put in.
