Dream Car

Filed under: Uncategorized — iamstepher @ 7:37 pm

I was able to get my driver’s license when I was 14 because of some hardship law that Iowa had for those who lived more than 10 miles from their high school and did not have any other means of transportation. Or at least it was something like that….I can’t exactly remember the specifics but either way, at 14 I had a car and I drove all over the place. I will never forget the day I saved up the $500 to buy my grey 1987 Buick Century. I was free! I was only about 4’9 at the time so you can imagine what I looked like driving around in that huge car.

It was completely rusted, only two of the four doors opened and the radio never worked because of some sort of fuse issue, but it was mine and i loved it. Even though I loved that car, I longed for the day when I could move up in the world and get a nice car.

There was an Audi dealership that I passed every single day on the way to high school. The A4 convertible was my dream car and I honked at it every day on the way to school. occasionally, I would go there after hours and check out that cute little car and I promised that one day it would be mine.

Today while looking through a box in storage, I came across this picture. I was 15. I remember the day I put the “dream car” sticker on the picture. We were doing a class project about what we want in life. My “dream husband” was Ryan Phillipe, my “dream house” just said Mansion and my “dream car” was the Audi A4 Convertible.

Superficial Dreams really do come true…


  1. Stephers, What a great pic!!! You should be proud of yourself for buying your dream car at such a young age. Or perhaps your dream car is just way more attainable than most peoples. Just kidding. You deserve everything good that comes your way!

  2. That’s so awesome! I have to say that your shoe selection has come a long way too. (jk – I totally had those too!)
