No, that's my wife's Smart Car. She doesn't need a cool car either.

This is a picture of my first car. 1959 Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie, black w/red interior, chrome fender skirts. Maybe not the coolest, but it was fast, and had a spacious back seat that was there when I needed it.

Jason,

Is this the same as your car? Think they called it a Super Javelin.

Cool, the George Jetson mobile.

Actually, I always thought one of those would be a lot of fun with a 401 stuffed in.

Last Christmas in western Arkansas, I saw a dark green Pacer that looked brand new. Must have been in somebody's grandmother's garage.

My high school car was a two door '56 Chevy 210, power pac, Hurst shifter for the 3-speed. Dad bought it in 1958 (prior to my brother's addition of the Hurst)

That is just to easy of a set up, I will reframe from comment for the sake of your coolness being so low..

A car in high school? You couldn't get a driver's license in NYC until you were 18, and the first year in college we weren't allowed cars. I extended my dorky car streak through college and the next year bought a '62 or '63 (looked the same) Volvo 544. It was even dorkier looking, but I could do 4 wheel drifts in it. If I'd done that with the Mercury, the wheels would have fallen off.

I had learned on an automatic and when I picked up the Volvo it was snowing and I learned how to drive a stick very, very fast—snow will cause that.

I think it is well know the dorks in high school and college go on to success and become super cool and the cool kids in high school and college become dorks. The athletes keep eating a lot and get soft.

A guy I knew in college, surely classified as a super dork, bought a Rambler because the seats went down and that worked a lot better than either the front or back seat for recreational purposes.

In 1966, I ended my dork streak with a new red Triumph TR4A with independent rear suspension (that was an option then).

Gene, are you sure cars had been invented when you were in high school?
