I used to drive a 1993 Honda Civic which my grandpa bought for me ($0 for me), then I had a kid, and we didn't fit in that two door car. We bought another two door car, whose seats folded into the dash so I could nearly stand in the back seat to put the babies in car seats. That car, which was a 1998 WV New Beetle, went to car heaven in 2009.
The insurance company gave us more than we paid in 2003 for the car, and we bought the next car, a 1996 Passat, for less than the insurance gave us. Leaving us $1000 in the black! ( I get it, with gas, repairs and maintenance, we didn't really make money)

As I was letting the irony of a working car with no working doors wash over me, I remembered another cool car that has no working doors. As long as my windows work, I don't need a new car!!
I can imagine my children jumping through the open window from the pick-up line at their elementary school. I'll be the coolest mom ever?
PS pretty cool old guy that can still do that!!
