Ego surfing Flipping through the masthead of the 0-60 premiere issue I noticed that Fifth Gear's Tom Ford has a 1984 Pontiac Parisienne Safari Station Wagon that he is currently slamming into a low rider because it makes so little sense to do so in Olde Blighty. Well, my first car was a 1985 Pontiac Parisienne Safari Station Wagon with 187,000 miles on the 'meter before it got donated to charity. Somehow I cracked the block a little bit and one of the cylinders only compression tested to 14 psi. Hey, think of it as a primitive form of cylinder-deactivation. And the closest my brown beauty ever came to being a low rider was when I took 11 people and a drum set to Sacramento. That's right kids, in the old days, cars were BIG. I still remember pulling into the gig parking lot and smashing off the front license plate frame. Which I then bolted to my bass amp. Sigh... I miss darggin' in the Lieberwagon. After the jump, you'll be able to vote on which Jalopnik writer had the best first car. And as always, you?
