What was your fashion style at age 18?

While many of us were unwilling to claim that what we were wearing at age 18 could be called “fashion”, we did have a few things in common. Including two people who used to sport the coveted Farrah Hair.

What kind of car were you driving at age 18?

There are such great car names: Monte Carlo, Tempest, Valiant, Impala. Then there are your “Smurf-mobiles”, “Fastivas”, and “Damn Sams”.

What were your plans for the future at age 18?

Most of us were planning on college, with about an even split between people who had no idea what they were going to be, people who were very clear about it and are in fact doing it, and people who are doing something completely different than they thought they would.

What’s your best memory from age 18?

Most people credit their friends with giving them the best memories of their 18th year on earth. Though one of us did spend the summer in Europe, and it was made clear that some of us lived in places where the legal drinking age was 18.

What did you do on your 18th birthday?

For those of us still in high school at the time (and not in a state where alcohol was legal at 18), there seems to be somewhat inconclusive results to this question.
