The way that teenagers in Masachusetts search for cars is a twice-monthly publication called The Want Ad. In this post dotcom era, ebay has mostly replaced that kind of marketplace, but you’ll still see the Want Ad kicking around the magazine rack at your local New England convenience store. And whenever there was a super-cool plymouth from the seventies, there was usually the designation “CA car” in the list of features. Here’s one in the flesh. As a teen, I personally circled too many dodge darts, mustangs, chevelles, and pontiac GTOs to count. They were a part of being sixteen in a way.
