I've done this a few times myself...
Let me give you a little background...
Growing up in Bakersfield, I have 2 sisters. 1 older, 1 younger. With my parents thats 5 of us. We've gone through a total of...I can't count...cars while we were here(posted in order of our obtaining the vehicle, in italics are cars we don't own any longer):
Mercedes-Benz (don't remember anything about it cept it was a diesel)
1994 Ford Taurus Station Wagon
1996 Ford Taurus Station Wagon
1970 Buick LeSabre
1985 Mercury Grand Marquis (I'll post more on this later)
1968 Dodge Dart
1971 Dodge Dart Swinger
1995 Ford Escort Station Wagon
1996 Acura Integra
Its hilarious when you try and change lanes only to end up turning on the wipers...
or vice versa ;)
