Everyone has a story about that first car. Whether it was new, a hand me down, or a junker, it was freedom on four wheels, independence, responsibility, and something that would always hold a special place in your heart. Well, you're t alone. My First Car captures those wonderful moments of automotive initiation as they were lived by such luminaries as Jay Le, Mario Andretti, Patrick Dempsey, Danica Patrick, and more. Accompanying many of these stories are photographs of the neophyte drivers with their first cars. For anyone who ever slid behind the wheel and tooled down the road for the first time, this wonderful book awakens memories of what it was like.
