Dave Coulier guest on Pop My Culture

Cole, Vanessa and our favorite wise-cracking uncle Dave Coulier (“Full House,” “America’s Funniest People”) talk the origin of Cut It Out, Skating with Celebrities and Nancy Kerrigan, The Olsen Twins, rooming with Bob Saget, Jim Henson, a new booger sitcom, Brecht, Out of Control, Bernie Brillstein, the Bure Brothers, clean stand-up, The Jackalope, Santana Claus, nostrils, Detroit, unintentionally farting Muppet Babies, and where the characters from Full House (probably) are today!

Leave your answer to the firsts question (the car you first owned or considered yours) on our website for a chance to win a Full House Season 1 DVD set signed by Dave!

Freshly Popped

    The first car I considered mine was a 1994 For Explorer with exploding tires!! Woohoo!

    I’m 28 and I still don’t have a car (bicycles rocks). But as far back as I can remember I’ve always wanted the convertible the Full House cast were in driving over the Golden Gate bridge. That was, until I saw on the dvd extras (rented, as I’m a poor grad student who can’t afford luxuries like that) that the cast ACTUALLY NEVER DID THAT, it was stunt doubles. How rude. Reality continues to ruin my life. But, I eventually forgave them. So, I’d love to win this.

    My first car was a 1961 champagne pink Cadillac. Drove it in 1972-75 high school. It is still in our family today. That was one hell of a car to take to the outdoor drive in. One night we fit in 21 people to see a movie. All for $2.00. You may think way too long ago but I am not really that old! 🙂

    My first car was a 1979 Plymouth Volare. My mom dropped the keys off to me right before we were about to go onstage to do “Wings” by Linda Barnes (the day we placed #3 in the state!!! Woo hoo!!!)

    My first car was 1985 Cutlass Sierra, bought from a neighbor for $50. Only lasted for about a year, but you never forget the car you had in high school.

    my first car was a ’96 pontiac grand am. in a very masculine barney (the dinosaur) purple. given to me by my aunt, it was a piece of crap. i couldnt roll down the windows without guiding them up and down with my palm and if i filled the gas tank more then half way it would leak out. i havent driven it in like 4 years but you can still see it infront of my house on google earth! i still kind of love it..

    My first car was a red 1994 Chevy Cavalier. My parents gave it to me my junior year of high school. On Name Your Car Day (Oct. 2), I named it “Pedro.” Pedro got me through college, law school, and the first six months of my first real job. Pedro departed this earthly world in 2004, at which time I bought a black 2004 Cavalier.

    The hockey team in Odessa, TX is the Jackalopes. They use the clips from AFP because I told the guy in charge of that about it. That is true.

    My first car was a 1990 Honda Accord that I bought with inheritance money seven years ago. I totaled it and missed driving it every day since. Three weeks ago, I bought the exact same car (somehow with only 92k miles on it) and have rediscovered my love of driving a manual.

    I had a white 90-something Subaru Imprezza, that had been my grandmother’s. After that, I had her black hatchback Imprezza… My brother eventually got her silver one.

    My first car was a 1994 hard top Jeep Wrangler – it was green, with ear wax colored interior… I had to roll down the window to open the driver’s side door from the outside. Also, I got the tinting removed from the windows solely for the purpose of better viewing from the back seats while driving down “the strip” in Panama City Beach at spring break… It was a beaut.

    My first car was a 1991 Plymouth Sundance America. The exact opposite car a teenage boy could want. It was small, a 0-60 time of literally 40 seconds, ugly, and to top it off it looked like an used bowling ball. It was a bold purple with big glittery flakes in it. I hate that car so much that I miss it.

    My first car was Clifford, my big red 1994 4-Runner. I drove him until he couldn’t drive no more…

    Ah, Babe. Babe was my 1989 blue Buick Skylark, a 4-door, and an all-around piece of shit. There was more rust than blue, only one speaker worked in the back, but I always tried to listen to music anyway, assuming the others would just start working somehow.

    She lasted me for maybe two years and we had a great time. Took my road test in her, I did!

    Sidenote: Vanessa, I’m pretty sure you were in that very car around 1998 or so, on one of your CNY adventures. If that doesn’t earn me brownie points on this one, I don’t know what will!

    You know, I’d like the DVDs but I already have Dave C’s autograph on a Full House board game, so if I don’t win this one, no biggie!

    On a related note, I just listened to this again, and I literally cried laughing the whole way through.

    I’ve never owned a car (I’m 28). But the car I learned to drive in was a 1998 Ford Explorer, red, Eddie Bauer edition. I think it was a ’98. I loved driving it, even though I am against SUVs politically (blah blah blah).

    A hideous silver Mercury Topaz. Character-building, right? 🙂

    First car: Green 1975 Plymouth Valiant. It was like a living room on wheels.
