There are 5 kinematic variables we work with: x (position at time t), v0 (initial velocity or velocity at time t=0), v (velocity at time t), a (acceleration at time t), and t. Consider the initial event (time t=0s) to be the car at rest just as it starts to accelerate. Consider the final event to be when it reaches a velocity of 17.3 m/s to the East at time t. What variables do each of these quantities represent?
