My First Car Story for Subaru Comes to Life- Enter to Win A 2012 Subaru Impreza

April 27, 2012 by SheFinds
shefinds | beauty

 

Last month I did what most folks in L.A. can only dream of: I “starred” in an ad for the FirstCarStory.com web campaign, and from that one day of shooting, I learned three important lessons:

1.) I really miss my first car.

2.) It’s not easy being a star

3.) The camera truly does add 10 pounds (in my case maybe 15-20!).

What’s FirstCarStory.com? It’s an awesome site sponsored by Subaru that helps folks reminisce about their first car, and how it works is quite genius. You choose an image of a vehicle that most closely resembles yours (my SUV came with dents and all), write a short story sharing some of your fondest memories (good and bad), and then within a few minutes your story comes to life with snippets of animation and music. If you really get into it, you can even add a voice-over. FirstCarStory is giving away a New 2012 Subaru Impreza!

Enter to win an All-New 2012 Subaru Impreza by going to FirstCarStory.com and clicking on the vehicle in the bottom right-hand corner.

The entire process is quick and fun, and what’s even better is that you get to share your story with your old friends and family via social media. You even get credit for “directing” it, but I seriously doubt you can add it to your body of work on IMDB. Or maybe you can? To create your First Car Story, visit FirstCarStory.com.

All I can say is that it’s been almost six years since I had my first car, but the First Car Story experience made it seem like it was just yesterday I was driving around my beloved SUV. And even though I’m happy cruising around town in my minivan these days, I really miss my first car and wonder who’s driving it now.

As far as lesson #2 and #3… let’s just say I have a new-found respect for anyone who performs in front of the camera. Despite the glamorous hair and makeup, gorgeous sets, and folks everywhere trying to make you comfortable, it’s hard work… seriously! But what an amazing experience and I would definitely do it again. Just give me the time and place and I’m there.

Everyone loved their first car. No matter how beat up or broken down, it was a taste of freedom and you loved it. Even though it lasted for a brief time, that emotional connection is an experience that units us all. Check out my custom illustrated story, you can submit one too at www.firstcarstory.com and bring your story to life with animation and music and share it with your friends.
