Default When you look back at your car, do you have....

Fond memories that make you chuckle or any kind of memories or feelings?
Well, when I look back at my car, I alway chuckle at the memories. I have put my car through hell that killed my Cutlass (I hated that car but yet I loved it, the 307 V8 was so so slow, that a minivan could beat me). I chuckle when I think of the time I went to play in the hills (canyon-carving) that car impressed me. Or my 110 mph attempt on a desolate road (mind you), I only got to 97 (I accelerated from a dead stop and I believe it finished about a quarter mile later). There are so many more that shall not be mentioned.

Oh yes, when I took my sizzling prom date to my Prom (I'm going again this year with my good friend) Guess who will transport me and my prom date, that'* right, Big Bertha.

Oh the good times, good times. That car is built like a tank.


How about you? Do you chuckle or grumble when you look back at your CAR, not your LIFE just so you aren't confused.

Drives in the country are good times. Also both my major trips to the Ouachitas and Louisiana. The feeling of boost and wasting people- track runs. Pretty much every time I drive my car is a good time. The fun to drive quotent is very high on boosted cars.

i look back an remember every thing i did in that car. anywhere from high speed runs <1 @ 86 mph> to pushing shopping carts around in a walmart parking lot <they get tipsy after 20 mph> and getting hit by a dodge ram <twice the weight of my car, seriously, and i still won>, and all the other crap i put it through in the year i have had it. i look at her with deep love and respect. even though she is tempermental at times, she is my baby .

I have many good memories associated with my car.
On the first long trip I took in her to NC to visit my Aunt and Grandfather (my mom rode along ,it'* her sister and father after all) I was drafting behind a semi through Pennsylvania late at night. Cruising at 85 my mom wakes up to see nothing but the rearend of an 18 wheeler a foot infront of us.

My first trip to take her out on the oval track(Temp tags still on her mind you), pulling out of the pit area the track official looks at me and asks "does the wife know you're hear with her new car?"..........I was 20 and single at the time (wise ***)

But mostly I'd say getting engaged to my wife in my Bonne, home from the wedding in the Bonne, and taking a roadtrip in her up the NH / ME coast in her for our honeymoon, are among the favorite memories that come to mind when I look at her.
