A Northern Colorado City Ranked Top 10 Best To Live Without A Car
Remember being a kid and not being able to wait until you could drive? Not having to ask for rides, or wait for public transportation to get around? As a kid, my family didn't have a vehicle a lot of the time, so I personally, couldn't wait to turn 16 and get my own wheels. I worked at a skating rink as a kid and my boss, the absolutely amazing late great Chris Cran, gave me an advance that I paid back to get my first car when I was 15. It was a 1977 Trans Am. I paid $1500 for it and I couldn't wait to drive it by myself.
