Coming of Age; 1967 Dodge Dart

       Jill Golding, my mother, told me that her first car was a Dodge Dart back in 1985. She said "I was excited when I got it". She drove it around everywhere, even though it was twenty or so years old when she got it. She didn't care that people had better, or newer cars than her. 
       another thing she mentioned was that her parents were worried that she would now be doing things on her own with her new responsibility. She felt like she was older then when she was pulling into the school parking lot, while the other kids who didn't have a car had to take the bus or walk. So my mom's coming of age story was about getting her first car.
