Speed Demon!

This was the picture that my 18-year-old son sent to my phone while I was at work.

The text read:
"My car's better than Jordan's!"
He's had this car only a month. It's a 1979 280Z.  After hearing my ranting and threats against him, he assured me his speedometer is broken. 
For his sake, I pray it is!
Sidenote: He said that he thinks he was ONLY doing 80!

That was scary :) Thank goodness it wasn't a Toyota!

OH....that is funny! What a funny kid. HOWEVER...if it were my child I probably wouldn't think it was funny when I got the picture. I'd be thinking, WHAT THE HECK ARE DRIVING THAT FAST AND USING YOUR CELL PHONE CAMERA???

GLAD it's a broken speedometer.

The stinker.
280Z? Awesome. I loved those cars!

Why do boys like to shock their moms? I would have freaked and then threatened him - ha ha:)

'79 280Z brings back a ton of memories!!! Great car !

Was he going through a residential zone?

That son of yours cracks me up!

Julie Harward said...

Camille said...

Yeah - totally fake! The pic is too "still".
But he is a creative one, that Jake!

My favorite part is that your son sent you a picture. You can be I'd never let my mother know if I drove that fast:)


Did he tell you it was broken before or after to threatened bodily harm...sounds like a lame coverup if you ask me. I'd take that car out for a spin and check it out myself. Crazy Uncle Jake!

My goodness... is that what I have to look forward to? I better practice laughing through heart attacks!
That is pretty hilarious, though.
