So the modeling contest crap got me out of blogging for about 30 days…and my little memory meme is all shot to pieces. Ill just pick up with my apologies.
I’m sure you missed the gobs of photos I was going to inundate you with.
Two weeks ago on FNL we were talking about growing up and our parents rules and we led into the first car we ever owned (See what happens when you miss FNL?). I was saying how my first car cost $500 and my dad used to make me go out and wash and wax it every freaking Saturday morning so I could learn the “value” of a vehicle.
While all the kids in my beach town drove BMWs and Mercedes, I got this little beauty.
And I was grateful.
1978 Chevy Chevette
No power steering, hatchback, and PAID OFF.
I loved this car.
It lasted all through high school and then my dad sold it to another poor teenage sucker and she had it through her high school. I got sent to college with out a car the first year.
My dad wanted me to study.
Is that what college was for?
PS what was your first car?
