Have you had your car read lately? #010 -- Have you ever had a sad car? Tell me about it!
Right: Car that didn't squeeze in someplace
Left: Some cars headed the wrong way (which ones?), scooters don't help
Right: Sad, can't leave town on its small batteries
Have you ever had a sad car? Tell me about it!
Mrs. Jim and I have had a couple or more.
My happy cars are my Mustangs.
Comic for the day: Jack in trouble (link)
More pictures of the day (more sad cars):
Left: Red car on wrong side of street, headed wrong way
Right: Parked Sable doesn't care which way -- does it go?
Left: Waiting for lift kit and large tires
Right: Too cheap to get taxi -- has all essentials, like a bag man with shopping cart has his
The top four are all Italian cars, the bottom four are U.K. except for the pretty blue and red, it was found in Louisiana.
Word for the day: tinnies
Last words here, all our cars were bought used. Mrs. Jim and I have never purchased a new one since we have been married. We were in education you know, retired now.
Our sad car was a 1972 Fiat....It was absolutely a "pain in the you know what. We had it only a week when it blew an engine. The dealership had that car more than we did so we traded it in about two weeks before the warrenty ran out and got a Toyota....Much better car.
The first Smart car I ever saw was in St. Barts. ~ Later! jb///
My sad Car was A ford fairlaine it Blew engine just under 16000ks just out of Yarrawonga and had to be towed home. ford payed for the engine we had to pay for labour.I felt something wasnt quite right and traded it just over 32000ks for my new ford. and have since been told by sevice manager who I know very well it blew another engine while out on a test drive with a potential buyer.wasnt I lucky I traded it in .
I can't tell you too much about cars because although I love cars and I love to drive I only owned one single car in my entire life. A good friend of mine gave it to me as a gift right after I got my drivers license. She gave it to me because it was 13 years old and she had actually bought a new one. But the old one still had insurance paid for three more months so she gave it to me before it had to go to the car cemetery.
So, this sad car was probably a happy car because it had three more months to live with me :-)
I don't think I ever had a sad car....but maybe my Plymouth Duster if I had to pick one. I forget what year it was.
I guess I'm mostly in for fun stories in the autumn..
I love the Italian pics, though.
Once you've tried to maneuver in the curvy, steep alleys of any Italian city, you know why there's a market for small cars and Vespas.
Once you've taxed from Venice to Garda on the autobahn one late Saturday night, you know the blessings of a solid armored car.
It got so rusted, I had to put wood planks on the floor in the back.
So, when I sold that car, what did I get? A '79 AMC Spirit. That's another story.
I like your happy cars, especially the green ones.
Adi likes that one very much too, also... I can tell.
Our car is sad at this very moment. Our car is a volvo named Yngvei. Taylor named him after a famous guitarist. Most cars are shes not hes, but ours is a he since Yngvei the guitarist is a he.
Our poor Yngvei is in the shop, very sick.
We are very sad too since his medical care will cost us a fortune.
I hope you have a happy week!!
Have a terrific day. :)
