About This Quiz

Few things fill us with more nostalgia than talking about our first car! They were our ticket to freedom and our ride to a brand new, more independent life. The only thing that might come close to the way we feel about our first car is our first kiss. Once you share your first car's features and condition with us, it will lead us down the road to figuring out where your first kiss took place. 

Did you grab a quick smooch under the bleachers at homecoming? Or you were bold enough to climb into the back seat? During this quiz, we won't ask you about your first awkward attempt at affection. We will ask you all about your first car's brakes and its sound system, though. Since there are so many formative emotions linked to both things, it will be easy to read between the solid yellow lines. 

No matter what condition your first car was in back when you thought it was the best thing on earth, every detail matters. Carefully read each question, and choose the response that takes you back to your first car's rock hard, factory seats. By the time you're done describing it, we'll know where you first puckered up. It was in your mom's basement, wasn't it?
