In 1976 my parents gave me their 1967 Pontiac Lemans Sport Coupe. It was light green with a black Vinyl interior - hot in its day Especially in the summer). Zero to 60 mph in feet, driving south on the Garden State Parkway on my way to school in the morning I could hit the toll basket with my quarter at 55 mph.
The car had only one problem. The starter wouldn't go off after you turned the ignition. So I would have to get out of the car, get my hatchet from the trunk open the hood and tap on the starter to get it to turn off - not very cool in the school parking lot when everyone is trying to impress each other with his or her car. My friends at vo-tech felt sorry for me and took the car into class and fixed it.
