1979 Mercury Capri

1979 Mercury Capri

Here’s my first car. It was a piece of junk, but looked cool. I must have got this back in like 1988 or so. It had a hatchback, which was nice. I tinted the rear, triangle windows and washed it religiously.

It leaked oil and ran like crap most of the time but it got me around. The older cars today don’t seem to run as bad as they did back then. If I were a kid looking for a good car to get me around, I’d definitely want a Honda or Toyota.

I had some good memories in this car. The most hilarious one was the first day I took it to school and showed my friends. We had a closed campus but there was a funeral that day (this is not the hilarious part), so we took my car. It was raining, so I turned on the wipers and when they turned on, one of the wiper blades flew right off! Here I was trying to show off my car and the wiper blade flies right off. I laughed as so do my friends. We all knew I bought a crappy car but that’s all we could afford back then so it was funny.
