Hey Maine, These Iconic Cars Came Out The Year You Were Born
This came up in a conversation here at the station earlier this week. What was the BIG car model that came out the year you were born? And, have you ever owned one of those cars? Would you ever own one?
For me, it was the Saab 900 Turbo. Kind of ironic, because I have never been a fan of the now defunct Swedish auto-maker. Actually, it looks like I should have been born six months later. Why? The very next year one of my favorite cars came out. The Audi Quatro. The model of Audi was their first vehicle that featured their amazing 4-wheel-dirve / all-wheel-drive system. Now, I've never owned a Quatro, but I have owned a much new all-wheel-drive Audi A4.
For Kevin in Waterville it was the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. For Emily in Augusta it was the Dodge Caravan - yes, the original minivan. And, for Cassandra in Lewiston, it was the Lamborghini Countach.
