TRIVER HISTORIA I love cars and I hate them at the same time. I fell in love with them at the age of 13, so much so that after high school I took classes in an automotive program at a four year college. I worked as a mechanic for eight years after the two year program. Then while working on cars I learned to hate them. But something about this car appeals to me; basic transportation is what cars should be. Forget the sex appeal. Forget the macho image. Just get from point A to point B.
