Cars we've had...

Ben Zimmerman helped me convince my parents that it would be a great idea to to purchase two of these cars (neither one ran) and make one car out of the mess. I bought both cars for $200.00 bucks and made the four speed a running car in one week(Ben did the wrenching) and $150.00 bucks later. Wow, I was so happy. I now had my own version of a Mini Cooper, American Style. Mine was a cool Burgundy color and of course I had to "get tunes" installed ASAP. Kraco installed for $39.00 and away we go....

Two weeks later the engine locked up and I threw a rod or something and the car was dead. The foreign salvage yard out on South Eubank paid me $200.00 for the pair and he towed them to his yard.
Two weeks of fun, out a couple of hundred dollars and a good time was had by all.


  1. I don't know what kind of car this is but I want one!!!!

  2. That's an original Mini there. Don't be fatuous, Anility.


Spam and rudeness will not be tolerated. We're here to have a few grins, and if you can't abide, move along. Did I mention Spam? Because if I didn't, here it is. NO SPAM!! That includes saying you like our blog and it's thought-provoking (which we know is a lie) and here's a link to your blog. Basically, if you link post a link to a for-profit site without the express written consent of me or the Big Vance-a-rino, I'll delete your comment and you'll look like an ass or I'll mock you mercilesly for being a dork.
