Obama’s first car was his grandfather’s 1970s Ford Granda. “The Ford Granada was not the peak of Detroit engineering,” he said. “It rattled and it shook, and I don’t think the girls were particularly impressed when I came to pick them up in a Ford Granada,” he said.
When he bought his first car for $900, it had such a big hole in that one could see the road.
