So time to get together!
Their boat is still being put back together after stripping it for hurricane season and them being away for an indefinite amount of time, so dinner on "Meerkat".
They brought salad, corn on the cob and vino.
We did 2 crockpot chickens, tortillas and arracherra.
Don't forget the wine.
We took no pictures...
We are lacking in the documentation of our lives.
However to backtrack, we still failed in the documentation of our lives...
We did have a long
Then we looked them up on google images to see how ugly our first cars were.
Well, maybe Jim won.
Well, maybe Dave won.
Or maybe Jim won.
Kellie had a 1966 Ford Mustang 289 (yes, Kellie, I remembered to put the 289 in the description).
It looked sort of like this, but had a cool candy apple racing stripe or some
Daddy bought it for her.
Unlike me, who bought myself my first car, a 1976 Toyota Celica GT Liftback when I was 17.Well, actually my Mom paid for most of it and I paid her back over a couple of years.
It was a pretty blue with white interior, 5 speed, yeah baby!
Now we have Dave.
A Mercury Bobcat.
Basically a sistership to a Ford Pinto
And last but not least, Jim's first car.
An AMC Hornet Wagon.Hmmmmmm... not even sure how to describe this one...
When I was 16 (and until I was 18) I was the only kid at home.
The last of five kids.
I was it.
No one to compete with.
My parents at that time had five cars.
I had cars to choose from!
Of course I always took the one with the most fuel...
And then I had to go out an buy myself one!
What was I thinking????
So I had a choice between:
My Dad's old 1960's Chevy Pick Up (I only drove it once, cause I had difficulty with the stickshift...). It looked sort of like this:Except my brother put the "Keep on Truckin" stickers on the doors...
My Dad's 70's Chevy Blazer:Oh, the times my sister Donna and I had in this car...
Dad if you only knew...
This was also the vehicle I did my first road trip down Baja in!
The Audi Fox.
The car with the worst electrical system in history.
Ever.I got stuck in this car more than every other car I was in put together.
God forbid you have the radio and windshield wipers on at the same time, then turn on the turn signal...
My Dad's "pre-run" Baja Bug he built.
It looked sort of like one of these.I couldn't find a picture of our car.
Way more fun to drive than that stupid Audi.
No radio... ok the Audi had it's benefits including a sunroof.
But then again, there was that electrical problem...
My Mom's 1964 Corvette Stingray (yeah, right. When she was traveling with my Dad, then I could
Until she sold it.
Then we all cried.
Hell, it was only 3 years younger than me!
So my questions are:
Who had the ugliest first car?
What car should I have grabbed on a Friday night?
Kellie - you first, because this post was YOUR idea!
