One thing led to another and we ended up doing it in the bus' bathroom while rolling down the New Jersey Turnpike. Not exactly the most romantic thing in the world, but as a 17 y.o. attending an all boys school, it was fine by me.

Is this the opposite of the mile high club?

If it was a wagon, it should have been comfy with the back seat folded down.

the Gremlin was a loaner, as a young driver I took whatever I could get, but yeah it was a tight fit
the 1st Citation my Dad bought for me
the 2nd Citation the insurance co. bought and I was glad to get anything having totalled the 1st one. I even got the same color cuz we knew a fleet leasing agent who had a lot of Citations for cheap at the time, I think they were in mint condition for only $4K
I actually loved the citations also me and 2 buddies get "lucky" in it during a bachelor party evening of bar hopping and I'll stop there (3 sep encounters not the 3 of us together! hahaha) not that there's anything wrong with that!

Part B:

One time I had a friend driving. Another time I was driving for a friend and his so. Another time me/my-so & friend/his-so took turns using the car of love....(sharing the car, not the partners BTW... and one couple waited outside). It was funny because there was a police near by and I was joking, acting like I was moving the car up and down... but it wasn't me moving the car from outside...

Part C:

Couple of times, don't remember the cars... I was lucky, blinded with a flashlight and told to "get a room"... no charges / no fines.
