  • Editor’s note: This column from 2009 is being rerun in honor of Nancy Kennedy’s husband, Barry, who turned 65 this week.

    When I first met my husband he drove a totally hot car, a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with burnt orange pinstripes and burnt orange interior – and a manual transmission.

    Because we were young and newly in love and Barry had miles of patience, he attempted to teach me to drive it. It helped that we lived in northern Maine where there wasn’t much to crash into except snow banks and caribou.
