A Life Story Told Through Cars (And Trucks)


Maybe you can tell the story of your life through the cars you have known.  The Datsun you took your driver's test in, or the Dart where you kissed somebody important to you.

Listen to the list of vehicles and the milestones they represent in her life.  It may sound familiar.
