Hahaha. Nicely done. I loved the last line.
Great job with the naming of cars...funny stuff.

God bless~
I enjoyed this funny story as someone who can relate to car problems. We only buy used cars that get us through a few years too. We were thankful our last car wasn't worth much when it drowned in Hurricane Sandy. Nice job.
Thanks for the journey down memory lane. This is a story most of us can relate too. Definitely a fun read.
What fun reading for us, and what fun memories for you (although I am sure at each car failure, you would not have said you were having "fun"). Thank you for a great read.
Congrats! God Bless~
Oh, how I relate to the list of clunkers! Congratulations, Marlene, and God bless!
This is great. I loved that part about "rocket surgeons." My dad used to fix his own cars too. As you said, those days are long gone. I think a lot of us can relate. Congratulations on a well deserved win.
This was fun to read and I had to giggle at the names you gave to each car. Congrats on making the EC list.
Congratulations on your 4th place and EC win. I really enjoyed your cars saga and particularly the names you gave your various cars. Most entertaining!
Congratulations Marlene, on your well deserved EC win! What a fun read! Loved the way you named all the cars! I pray your Methuselah-car lives up to his name! Great job!
Oh so enjoyable to read. Big ear to ear grin as I expectantly moved to your next name and description. I thought I was the only one dorky enough to name my vehicles.
Congratulations on your EC placing.
