1988 Wartburg 353 Review
First Car Ever Almost Cured Me From Wanting A New Car — Was my first car got it free from my dad. it was rubbish, nothing worked for very long on it and it cost me a fortune compared to other cheap cars. But it WAS MINE ! and my first car ever. The best thin about it was where ever i went people noticed me (police noticed me to and stopped me all the time, got stopped more than 10 times in 1 year)
Pros: Everybody knew who i was because or my car
Cons: Everybody knew who i was because or my car
