CARS TO GO # 001
1. Heard the other day from the NASCAR announcer:
"Dale Earnhardt, Jr, got/received a minor penalty for speeding." Dah.
2. First Cars for the family members (this is to be continued):
Mitch and Mike, 1962 Volkswagon bug
Susie, 1964 Chevy Malibu
Tim, 196x Chevy pickup
Karen, 1983 Thunderbird
Mrs. Jim, 195x Oldsmobile
My first car picture -- 1950 Studebaker
The 1956 Ford car above was my third car, mine was light green and white. Be sure to check the large size picture --> [large picture] [supersize] for a surprise! Link for more about my 1956 Ford Sunliner, click here.
3. Per Jeff Millar (co-author of Tank McNamara (see it link) comic strip-Wikipedia article):
"If you have a land choice, never get behind a Lincoln Town Car"
I wonder why?
4. I would like input on your first car or other car items in your life. Thanks.
P.S. I'm looking forward to meeting you at BlogStock'08!
I never had one of these, but my first car that I ever owned was a red 1964 Ford Mustang. I gave $400 for it. Wish I still had it!
I hit a parked car once, and then left he scene of the accident. I got down the road, pulled over to a phone booth, and called my mom. She commanded me to return to the scene. It happened right outside of an El Taco restaurant. I went inside to report what I'd done, and they said the owner of the car did not care one bit about it because his car was a clunker.
Whew!! Mona was goood luck for me!!
Pine Derby cars are sad memories for us. My son had a great car and ended up losing because some kids cheated on the rules. He was so forlorn. I have a photo of him looking terribly dejected. It still makes me sad to look at that photo.
My parents live in CA, but they own a home in AR.
The view is from their back yard here in AR.
I added another sentence to my post to clarify this.
None of us are from AR, but my dad was born in MO.
My first car was a 1950 Studebaker Champion. Black. A former cornpicker I think.
