Cars Cars and more Cars



So the car drama continues.... 1995-1997 Black 1992 Chevy Cavalier named Job. Job earned his name for all the trials I put him through and he still remained faithful. He was quite possibly the most dependable car of my teenage life. Until John Cathy wrecked it coming back from Sigma Alpha formal. Not bitter, but my car dependability life suffered greatly after it.

Spring 1997 Blue and rust (all natural) colored 1985 Honda Accord. Named appropriately P.O.C.O. which stood for Piece-O-Crap-O. However annoying that you had to fill the tires every time you drove, POCO had his charms and served me well for the short time I drove him. For instance, how loveable is a car that had power lock (singular). The back left passenger door was the only one that worked when you hit the power lock button. Very convenient for that passenger, not so convenient for the others. POCO was actually a loaner from my brother, so thanks Brad!

This is the mundane area. Sweet memories for me, probably a pretty boring read for you. I would hate to skip these cars in my brief history of cars, as they played a role in the feelings and drama to be unfolded in the next blog about Saul.

So all of you who have been praying for patience, consider me a tool of the Lord and this blog as your first trial!

I'm just glad you didn't marry John Cathy after Sigma Alpha formal or your name would have been Sista Crista Cathy, the girl with two first names.

Ahh the days of POCO and Curly!!! A moment of silence and a big "Woob, Woob, Woob, Woob, Woob"

LOL Holly! woob, woob, woob, woob, woob. I almost forgot about curly.
I have to say about tires, I know that was an easily remediable problem, but that was when the $7 it would take to have a tire patched was 1/2 of my weekly budget. Thankfully, my good friend Mike Milford came through for me and took me to have it fixed and paid for it! what a pal!

It only takes $7 to patch a tire?

schwalka said...

yes...and if you go to Discount Tires they will do it for free regardless if it is their tire or not. There is a little plug for Discount Tire. Unfortunately, Abilene did not have one at that time.
