CARS, CARS, CARS:  Fond Memories  

THE GOOD LIFE  THE GOOD LIFE  THE GOOD LIFE  THE GOOD LIFE

You might reach your life's destination better if you remember
FAMILY AND GOD - THAT'S WHAT IMPORTANT.  MONEY, CARS THOSE ARE THINGS THAT COME AND GO - Fabrice Muamba

ANY MAN WHO CAN DRIVE SAFELY WHILE KISSING A PRETTY GIRL IS SIMPLY NOT GIVING THE KISS THE ATTENTION IT DESERVES - Einstein


I was only 15 when I drove alone to the police station to take my driver's test.  As I parked on the wrong side of the street, a police car pulled in behind me.  I told them I was there to take my driver's test.  Would you believe, they simply told me to go home and bring my Dad with me the next time?

OUR NATIONAL FLOWER SHOULD BE THE CONCRETE CLOVERLEAF - Lewis Mumford


1937 PACKARD
The 1937 Packard I drove in High School had the fenders all but rusted off.  Under the floor mat, the floor was wood, and, right on top of the muffler, it would smoke.  I carried water to put out the fire.  I left the car at a square dance in Ohio when I ran out of gas the same time that my  folks came home from NE Ohio and asked where the car was.  Car gone bye-bye.

I SPENT A LOT ON BOOZE, BIRDS AND FAST CARS.  THE REST I JUST SQUANDERED AWAY - George Best


1947 FORD
I bought this exact 1947 Ford in 1952 when I got out of the Navy.  It was a "hot" car with a 100 HP instead of the 60 HP engine.  It is truly a wonder I did not kill myself in that car as I skidded it around every curve.  I still had problem running out of gas, a few times under embarrassing situations.


THE CARS WE DRIVE SAY A LOT ABOUT US - Alexander Paul



1959 Chevy
After my 1947 Ford, I bought a used 1949 Ford and a used 1954 Plymouth.  The 1959 Chevy was my first new car.  You know what is so amazing about buying that new car?  It cost me $2,150 tax, title and out the door.  I paid more than that for my trike!  The trunk in this big fin car was so big I could lay my 6' 2" frame down in it and not touch the sides.

IF YOU OWN A HOME WITH WHEELS ON IT AND SEVERAL CARS WITHOUT, YOU JUST MIGHT BE A RED NECK - Jeff Foxworthy


I continued buying new cars, switching to new Lincoln Town Cars in the 80's.  Since retiring some 25 years ago, we started buying used Lincoln Town Cars with good bodies and low mileage.  Presently we are looking to replace this one.

WOMEN ARE LIKE CARS.  WE ALL WANT A FERRARI, SOMETIMES A PICKUP TRUCK, AND END UP WITH A STATION WAGON - Tim Allen


1992 CHEVY ALUMNI
In addition to the Lincoln, my wife drives a small Lexus.  I drive a Chevy van, which I love.  The van has a fiber glass body and will never rust.  I mostly keep ahead of maintenance making repairs before needed.  We've had opportunities to replace it but I want to keep it.  It will be an antique in just 3 more years, just like me!

WHEN HENRY FORD MADE CHEAP, RELIABLE CARS PEOPLE SAID, NAH, WHATS WRONG WITH A HORSE.  THAT WAS A HUGE BET HE MADE, AND IT WORKED - Elon Muak



LET US BE THANKFUL FOR THE BLESSING OF MODERN TRANSPORTATION
