My first car was a 1966 Porsche 912 5 speed I bought in 1969.
I had just gotten back from Vietnam and spent nearly all my combat pay on it.
Drove it cross-country NY to Calif - I left NY at daybreak, by sundown I was in St Louis, Missouri. Granted, it was summer (long days),
but snapped the crankshaft 6 miles West of Gallup, New Mexico (I was doing 115 at the time).
Had it towed East to Albuquerque and had engine rebuilt, then drove it to Marine Corp base 29 Palms, Calif.
West of the Mississippi I got a ticket in nearly every state - that I had my Marine uniform hanging in the back meant nothing - it was all about revenue.
In the cop's defense, they couldn't help themselves - a red Porsche with NY plates in Oklahoma made them drool. (lot of droolers there).
After rebuild I drove it to Los Angeles to see a 'Nam buddy, and it was stolen.
All my cars have been downhill since that first one.
