Donald R 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Coupe

Who would have thought...

... after having owned this car for 37 years, that I would still be madly in love with it.

About 10 years ago, I took my then 12 year old daughter out for a quick spin (it was the only car she could sit in the front seat as there are no airbags, obviously). There was no way I would have ever thought that my 12 year old daughter would be sitting in this car with me, as my 8-track tape of Frampton Comes Alive was blaring through the Jenson tri-axial speakers, when I pulled up next to a Grand National. The young woman in the car couldn't even see my daughter sitting next to me as she was too short to see over me. We acknowledged each other, we launched, and then we went our separate ways. I wonder if one day her daughter will be sitting next to her in her ride as my daughter still does with me.
