You could even travel much further now! You could go to so many different places than just nearby towns. Wait until you see the night life of the city with all the flappers and jazz players! Having a car will expose you to so much more culture than you have seen in just this town.
Why, you could even visit your parents and introduce them to your new flapper! Or impress your flapper with your new wheels and go on a weekend vacation. You can travel so far, so quickly!
Maybe I should get a car, and it will attract an actual girlfriend and I will not have to lie about my imaginary girlfriend at work anymore!
Epilog: Freddy bought a brand new Model T Ford and impressed a bird, and drove off into the sunset, never to return. (We can learn a lot from history. This is why teenage boys are hardwired to want a car.)
