Can you say....Kugelfischer?

My very first car was a 1971 (with the round taillights, like in the picture) 2002 (not tii). I wanted that orange but the only car the dealer had in stock was "Riviera Blue". I remember riding with my mother in our other car while my father drove the 2002 back home, down Queens Blvd. He looked over to me at a stoplight and the biggest grin was spread over his face; I think he loved that car more than I did. Even back then he was always complaining how American cars were too big and if they just came out with smaller models people would see how much easier they were to drive. I think a smaller car with a sweet-shifting stick was just what he had in mind.

Ahhh....memories.
