September19 Somethin’ Challenge Day 19




Well, here is day 19 of the September 19 Somethin' Challenge.  I hope you are playing along with us.  

Remember that soon we will roll out our course “How to Manage Your Monkey".  In the mean time, if you have any money saving or budgeting ideas, send them on. 



Let’s get into today’s post.
Here is today’s question.
What was your favorite kind of car when you were young? Did you ever get to have one of your own?

My all-time favorite car was the 1964 ½ Ford Mustang.  This was a beautiful car.  When I was a sophomore in high school, Ford had a beautiful Mustang 2 Cobra. It was a beautiful car.  In 1978, they changed it and messed it up.

My father really wanted me to have a Camaro or a Trans AM.  When I was a senior in high school, my car was stolen on Thanksgiving night.  My mother was going to get a new car and I was going to get hers.  This was not a problem.  However, she loved her car, so she told my father about a car she and I had seen.

My father took me to a different lot instead and had me test drive a Camaro.  It sat too close to the ground.  I knew that was a problem because of the places I had to go in my car for work.  I told him it was too low.  I could tell he really wanted me to have one.

I got a 1979 Mercury Capri, which was a more deluxe model of the Ford Mustang that year.  It did not look like your typical Mustang. 

That is the car I had when Suzanne and I started dating.

What about you?

  1. That was wise of you to realize the car had to serve a purpose and not just look good.

    1. Thank you for stopping by and commenting. Too many guys back then thought a car would buy them love. It often bought them what they THOUGHT was love, but that is not love. They lost that when the new model year came out and their car was old news.
