At the ripe young age of 17, I bought my first car - a 1994 Toyota Tercel, with a 4-speed manual transmission. I bought it with roughly a 180,000 miles on it and it does have quite a bit of character (dents and dings), but none the less it gets me around. None of that is important, especially on a bee forum. It's not the car I want to show - it's the license plates. I got these plates in the DMV for $25 a year, and to be quite honest, they're worth it. Enjoy.
