Austin America 

The Austin America was my second car - replacing the VW I blew up. I put it into the guard rail back end first, going down Dunbrick hill in Paris way faster than I knew how to drive, within a week. My first lesson in oversteer. I was hard on my early cars, to say the least.

Mine was red - identical to the one on the right below with the stock wheels. Can't remember what happened to it. I think it got traded in for my next car complete with the dent in the right rear quarter panel.
