That was many hearses ago. Its name was Jumbo (1974 Caddy). It died in 1993
after a cross-country trip that was too much for it. Near as we can figure,
it had 150,000 miles on it when we bought it, not the 50,000 we were told.
Since then we have had Fang and Fang II (both big black 70's caddies--1973
My 1989 Camry wagon died in 1999 (bad tranny--repair to cost more than the
car was worth), and Ricky bought me Spyder for my 44th birthday a week
And Ricky now has Fang III, same year and make as Spyder, but black. He
just got really cool vinyl graphics from an Internet website and put them
down the sides--Fang looks like it drove through a puddle of blood and
splashed it. He's getting all sorts of honks and waves and comments.
I'm still holding out for a 50's flame job on Spyder's nose.
Fang and Spyder are our everyday rides. We do not own "normal" cars any
more. They are LARGE cars (though 4' shorter than the 70's Caddies, LOL!),
which makes for interesting maneuvering in tight spaces. I have to call up
the old programming from driving the '64 Chevy Bel Air that I drove in
college, which was approximatley the same size (18' long, 7' wide).

- Sorry to hear about your automotive problems. We're on our second Toyota Camry in 18 years. In 1994, after eight years on our first Camry we traded the first one in on the one we have now. It's ten years old, averages 25 miles to a gallon of regular unleaded gas, has a very peppy four-cylinder engine, and has not needed a lot more than routine maintenance for the past ten years.
I'd still love to have a Cord!
Not gloating -- really!!

#1 desired car- Any flipping car that can get me from point A to point B consistantly, with decent milage, 4 doors (all of which work) and comfy seats; said car must also only need gas and occasional oil changes, NOT to be fed substancial amounts of cash periodically because some stupid sensor goes out or major system breaks down.
Anything else is gravy.....
Whose car went "POP" 2 days ago due to a badly installed connectiong pipe in the AC system, resulting in a lot of white steam coming out from the hood and the removal of 378.00 dollars from my account. >:-(
