I was far from a normal teenage girl, and that showed in everything from my wardrobe choices to the vehicle I chose to drive after I got my drivers license at 16 years of age. Unlike most girls, I didn’t see the appeal of cute little sporty cars but instead preferred pickups and Jeeps. One of the best moments of my life was when my uncle let me drive his Jeep to the store and back with him in the passenger’s seat after I got m learner’s permit. I wasn’t able to get my own vehicle after I got my license and had to share a car with my mom, but I saved almost every dime from my after-school job until I had enough to buy my own Jeep from Bloomington Chrysler. I picked out a bright red one and have been driving it every since.
