When It Rains, It Pours…

This is supposed to be my year!!! But Noooooooo!

These are 2 of my very most favorite things on Earth… Roy and My Car! It’s 14yrs old with over 177000 miles on it. I have been the one to put nearly 90% of the miles on it. I love this car. I have wanted this car since I could form the word, Camaro.

My daddy had one in 1968 and again in 1976.

My oldest daughter, EdithAnne was conceived in a ‘69 Camaro.

I love Camaros.

And that man bought it for me… Right off the ShowRoom floor!! He’s told me time and time again to “slow my HappyAss down” and has threatened to take it from me if I didn’t! He gets on to me all the time about wreckin’ it but I have not put one scratch on it… there’s no dents or even a door ding!

I am one with that car… it is my X-wing fighter.

On Christmas, Roy found a hole in the radiator and $600 later, I was on the road again. But one day, while drivin’ to town, it started grindin’ gears!!!

Yes, It’s Standard. And my Clutch died. Flat died in Hellmart parking lot. NO REVERSE!!!!!!! $1500 to fix it!!!!! My mechanic said “for a car with that much power, It’s a wonder you got 177000 miles outta of it!” I know how to drive it, and I choose to drive 70 mph every where I go!!

There’s been talk about new car.

I’M NOT HAPPY!!!

Nice car! i wanted either a Camero or a Mustang. i wound up with the Mustang. and had it just shy of 5 years before trading it off for something more practical for me.
