What's bugging me? I'll tell you what's bugging me. It's when my dashboard dials stop working right.
My first car was a 1978 Datsun B210 sedan that I bought when I was in graduate school. It was a very simple vehicle with nothing fancy on it. But it did have a few, um, quirks. I bought it in the bitterly cold winter of 1983 and promptly spun it in a 360 degree circle in an intersection in Loveland, Colorado late at night after visiting with my then-fiance (and now wife) Deb. Almost all of my interesting car stories come from that car, whom we had dubbed "Elliot."
