Well what can I say?  This is the first new car I ever had.  Purchased new from the local dealer in Victoria BC in August 1989.  I had barely any credit and had fallen out with my parents so did not want to ask them for any financial help.  I really wanted the Fox GTS, with sunroof, side graphics, and 5-speed manual, but I just couldn’t swing the extra $1000 or so back then.  So I ended up with this 4-speed base model, which I ended up keeping for 17 years and 150,000km.
