This past summer, we got a 2005 Ford Taurus.
It was hand delivered and has been a good car...smooth ride, quiet interior, and no rust! Since then, we've had 2 children return home from missions, and have had a few cars "die." So, it's come down to this:
Since I don't drive as far to work as the others in our family, I get to drive the car that has been parked on the side of our house for the past month.
Meet "The Zipper!"
Jordan got this 1981 Toyota Tercel for free when he was 16 (the original owner was going to take it to the scrap yard). With a lot of work, money and TLC, it came to life. Jordan drove it all through high school. When he left on his mission, Jacob drove it. It's good to add some bedazzling to a somewhat hum-drum car...
whether it be flames, a flying eyeball or vinyl words on the back window. (I have no idea what it means but I keep my cell phone close so I can make that phone call)
There are some rules that go along with this car:
1. Make sure it warms up for a while or it will die when you push on the gas.
2. Don't turn the heat thermometer to cool or the collant will leak out.
3. If you roll down the windows, you need to moisten (lick) your hands and pull the window up while cranking.
4. Don't drive it over 60 mph.
