I finally found the picture I was looking for.. MY FIRST
CAR!! Here is the story….
I was back
from a year in Ca. away from family and was home to get some
wheeels! Yep I was tired of being in Ca. and not having a car. In
California you drive everywhere and I sure needed it.
Used cars were a lot cheaper here in Michigan than in Ca. for sure.
My dad had lots of connections and he knew a good car when he saw one.
Lets face it.. I knew NOTHING.. so we went looking for a car.
Dad intended for us to drive the car back to Ca. so it had to be a
good one with not a lot of miles on it. He picked a white one with
four doors. It was a CHEVY.. I immediately DID NOT like it!
Something about it.. I could not quite figure out what it was, but I knew
it was not MINE!
This car WAS.. a 2 door..’73 chevy chevelle malibu hardtop
and boy did she run! Dad didn’t like it. I DID!! I liked the color,
I liked the style and the hard top. It was a bear to take care
of in the Ca. sun.. but I did not care!!
We got the car and drove it all
the way to Ca. She last over a 110,000 miles and
had to be towed out of the driveway when I sold her
to a dealer. I cried!! I admit I was so attached by then.
WHY am I talking cars? Well we all have one we really are
or were attached to. One that holds a special place in our
hearts and or memories.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE CAR THAT HOLDS A SPECIAL PLACE
IN YOUR MEMORY??
We all remember our first set of wheels and how it felt to own
something that was "really ours". What freedom!!
That old Chevy and I shared a lot together and our adventures
included a trip to Santa Barbara to see Sue.
That story is for later. Driving across the USA.. now that
was an adventure!!! Stay TUNED!!
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT SATURDAY!!
P.S. Gas went up to 2.75 here.. I know.. outrageous isn’t it!!
