Swa-Rai Adventures: My First Car, I called her NightRider!

It’s been 12 years and  I still think about my first car! That’s right NightRider (her name) and I went on many adventures, she and I were best friends!

I don’t think  ya’ll understand…

I worked hard to get her! I worked many hours at Blockbuster to save the down-payment while making sure I kept my A1 credit status because I knew I wanted something brand spanking new for a good price!

NightRider was the perfect combination for me she was a black 4-door sedan and big enough to hold all my friends. I think of the countless memories I had in that car with ex-boyfriends, my sorority sisters and family.  It was always one thing after the next. When Subaru gave me the opportunity to tell my first car story via, it brought back all those great memories of what it felt like to be a young girl with her own set of wheels. The site let me customize everything from the story, to the color of the car and the theme music.  It was quite fun and super easy. If you are like me and remember your very first car, I highly recommend you try First Story site out, I was even able to tag my friends via Facebook….

How cool is that and it was so much fun!

Everyone loved their first car. No matter how beat up or broken down, it was a taste of freedom and you loved it. Even though it lasted only for a brief time, that emotional connection is an experience that unites us all. Check out my custom illustrated story, you can submit one too at and bring your story to life with animation and music and share it with your friends.
