You know what they say: You always remember your first . . . Everyone has a story about that first car. Whether it was a high school graduation present or a junker rescued from the wrecking yard, it was freedom on four wheels, something that would always hold a special place in your heart. My First Car captures those wonderful moments of automotive initiation as they were lived by such luminaries as Jay Leno, Mario Andretti, Patrick Dempsey, Danica Patrick, and many more--regular kids at the time, wild to have their first wheels--with photographs of the neophyte drivers with their first cars--back in the day when stardom was a turn behind the wheel.
