(this is not my actual car; just a similar model I found online)
I was “proudly” known as ‘Guido Joe’ or the “Italian Stallion”. This was my first car which I had purchased about two weeks before getting my license. If memory serves right, it cost about $6500…which was literally every dime I had in savings. Mom helped with the last $1000, which I paid her back on within the next year.
It was a manual trans that I drove for a good 6 years and racked up just about 105,000 miles before it was time to part ways and pass it on to the next owner. It sported a stereo that would retrack itself to appear like the detachable face-plate ones, a sound system that would shake a house from two blocks away, a total of 44 purple neon lights throughout and underneath the car, strobe lights that would activate in reverse (in lieu of the white lamps), and plenty more. I would cruise up and down the streets of Nutley and Bloomfield, NJ virtually every day. It is also how I met my first girlfriend (Dawn) and became a nice “private getaway” for those romantic evenings when a bedroom wasn’t an option. Lots of memories for sure!Click Here to Download Attached File.
