I believe this was my first car:  I had a Toyota at some point, and I believe that was the one I sold before I headed up to Cal Poly (because I had my Vespa).  It was a white car (would never own another white car) but had really cool blue and red pinstriping.  I believe I had to learn how to drive a stickshift before I could drive it. I ended up getting a custom license plate that said BERLIN as a tribute to my favorite band. I also had one of those license plate frame that you could get custom-made at the Nipomo Swap Meet or the Mid-State Fair. The plate read “Berlin’s Number 1 Fan!” Damn, I thought I was so cool!
