Early Cars

I bought my second car from my friend Travis for a very small amount of money. It was a 1991 Buick LeSabre LE. The LE stands for "luxury edition." I check the LE and the base model online to compare the two, and it turns out that the LE comes with a higher end suspension package, which explains why that car cornered like a guy wearing roller skates. In fact, I barely noticed a drop in performance coming off of my first car, a sports car. It was a 1989 Chevy Cavalier that I'd traded a pair of well-used telemark skis for. It was a 5-speed manual with a crushed driver-side door caused by an errant shopping cart at the local grocery store. I cringe imagining what would have happened if an actual car had ever hit it. I thought I'd drive that car forever, but then the city towed it during a snowstorm and I never picked it up from the impound lot.
