Out with the old, in with the new

Disappointment. The only word to describe senior Brandon Brewster’s feelings about his first car.

“[It was] a little dinky thing, with a really small engine [and] looked dorky,” Brewster said.

Brewster decided it was time for a change. He bought a 1967 Mustang Coupe that he said is “drop dead easy to spot in a crowd.”

“Pretty non-special car, other than the manual transmission,” Brewster said. However, he has many personal memories with it. The beginning of the school year 2012, he decided to take a friend to lunch. Suddenly, it was stuck in first gear and the brakes went out.

“[I] don’t know why or how, but it was quite strange,” Brewster said.

Brewster and his friend had to stop the car manually by getting out of the moving car and pushing it in the opposite direction. He said his car is made up of memories, stories, compliments, and support from others that mean a lot to him.

“[I] hate that car to death, [but it’s] a labor of love.”
