Writer's Block: My First Car

What was your first car?


Oh how I miss him.

My first car was actually a hand me down. My brother bought (with mom's help) a black Isuzu P/uP with lowering blocks etc. You know, a show truck. Well, Richard defaulted on the loan, so mom paid it off and confiscated it. And when I got my license, I inherited it. After learning to drive standard, that is. I could tell you stories of stalling out at a major intersection and realizing 10 minutes later the problem was I was in 3rd and not 1st.

Well, anyway, my first week of college, I was driving my friends Kari and Dawn to Meijer's for groceries when they christened my low riding black truck with a ghetto sunroof. Thus was born my "Pimp Mack Daddy Mobile", or Pimp Mack for short. Until the day he died, I swore up in down I was going to glue afro wigs across his roof.

He made several interstate trips, including Illinois and Oklahoma and West Virginia in his time. His radio only worked on rare occasions.

He was a pain in my ass most of the time, but I loved him very much. He died in December 1998 in front of mom's house after dumping his oil down the exhaust line. I still have his rearview mirror as a reminder of the love we shared.

I only remember mine was a four door green thing....that liked to die at THE worst places and times! Like at 5 o'dark right by 'spaceman's bridge' which was in a very unpleasant feeling gloomy river valley. Unpleasant as in I WANT MY MOMMY....GIVE ME A GUN....THERE'S SOMETHING CREEPY OUT THERE!

Sounds like the prelude to a horror flick;)

Oh it could easily be one! That little valley is creepy even in broad daylight! Some of the things I've seen down in there...in daylight....would make your skin crawl and the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Things that are WHOA UGLY one second...then poof not there the next.

I'll go the long way around to avoid that area. Sorry but no amount of blessed salt, sage and gallons of holy water could fix the situation.
