Memory 'Lane

Many of my views on cars, roads, places, people and life in general are viewed through the prism of a car that meant an awful lot to me for a long time. I still meet people who remember seeing the car on the road, and know me only as "GreenMachine" - the car and I couldn't be separated. 

I've written a lot about my '77 Fairlane Marquis, but I've never tried to record the story of the whole ten years. I think it might be interesting, so I aim to tell a 5 part story over the next few weeks. Hopefully at least one will be illustrated by Daniel, but the car was gone by the time he and I started ColumnShift.

All cars have a personality - Some more than others. My Fairlane had a mean streak a mile wide, and I think that's a good place to start.  

Here goes.
