Jacob Nyberg ’20 gives a tour of his 2004 Chevy Impala, which he has named “Lil Imp.” “This is my baby. I will drive it until it dies, probably in a couple months,” Nyberg says.

A student’s first car is one of their most important and memory filled possessions. Jacob Nyberg ’20 got his car in August of his sophomore year from a used car salesman nearby. In the two years since he bought it has acquired many stories and scratches.

“I think it was at 120,000 miles… There was like one dent and now there’s a lot. I put 50,000 miles on it,” he said.

Besides a scratch he put on his mom’s car while backing out of the garage, Nyberg claims most of his car mishaps only damage his car. 

“I’ve hit two mailboxes, knocked both of them down … I put my car in a ditch as well, and I had to pay to reconstruct whatever below got broken. It happens. I don’t really count that as a crash because I didn’t hit anything,” he said.
