My college room mate had the same car, same color. He was also the last person on this continent to have an 8 track player in it.
My first car was an orange 73 VW Thing. I wish I still had it.

Holy crap Abe, what color?

Had a lot of classmates that had the equivalent of supercharged Range Rovers for their first cars (Porsche 944, 928, Corvettes, Mercedes, BMWs), but I wasn't that privileged..

'79 Datsun (yes before they changed their name to Nissan here) 280ZX..

It was rusty, and had over 100K miles on it when I took it over, but I loved that car. Rebuilt the engine in it my senior year in HS. Still think the body design is pretty timeless..
