The Opel

We bought our first car. A pistachio green Opel Rekord.

I got my driver's license while I was on maternity leave and was so excited to get behind the wheel. Although you actually do not need a car in Berlin as the public transportation system will take you anywhere, it is more convenient to have one with a baby. Too bad I do not have a better photo of our car, it may have looked like this, the color is exactly right.

Opel Rekord
In German there was this saying "Jeder Popel fährt nen Opel", Roughly translated that would mean 'every hick drives this car' so it was not the most popular company. But it was a good solid car, until we got rear-ended. (No injuries). I think our next vehicle was a red Fiat.
