Daryl Hall, John Oates and a Fiero

This one's near and dear to my heart for a couple of reasons. 1) I love Hall & Oates and 2) there was that one time that (in my mind) I almost had a Fiero.

It was the '80s (of course it was) and KWES (my local radio station) was giving away a Fiero. I had the great idea that I could register to win it and we could keep it in our garage until I was old enough to drive it. Dad - who was always very cool in my eyes - said no when I presented him with the idea.

Alas.

Of course, I now realize that little things like "must be 21 years of age or older to win" probably would have kept me from winning my dream car. Still, it was a lot of fun to dream...

(Kudos to the girlfriend for sharing this picture with me!)
