Writer's Block: My First Car

What was your first car?
My first car was a used silver Chevy Nova obtained from a couple several months after I got married.  The couple was getting a newer car as they were expecting their first child.  

The Nova had a boxy almost Rabbitish exterior but the interior was all Toyota parts.  We'd call it the Super Nova after the Liz Phair song.  It had a grey cloth interior and those flat tabs to lock the doors.  I'm pretty sure it had crank handles but I was really happy it had a tape deck.  

For some reason it began conking out.  I drove into the hospital parking lot once from lunch and it just died.  I had to put it in park and then restart it.  Dave, our mechanic at the time, said "Something deep in the heart of it died."  All in all, I think we got six years out of it. 

Next came my favorite, the Passat.
