Well when he said "junker" he wasn't lying! This $400 deal was a piece of junk on 4 wheels! No problem though. I would never have to drive it and I made him promise to never let anyone we know see him driving it.
For a couple of months everything went according to plan. Jonathan took his monster to and from work while I had the freedom to run the roads with the kids.
Then it happened. Saturday morning I hopped into my van to go to music practice at church, and it wouldn't start. The battery had died after one of the little darlings left a light on over night. Jonathan said if I waited a few minutes he would jump it for me but I was running late already...
So I swallowed my pride, wiped off the seat, and drove off in the junker.
At first glance, she's a beauty. Check out these sweet seat covers that the people selling the car threw in FOR FREE! You couldn't find seat covers like these even at Walmart.
Door panels are overrated. One firm pull on some of the stuffing and it closes just fine...
Sure the AC didn't work. But when I got that 1 working window rolled down I barley even noticed the sweat dripping down my arms in the 90 degree heat.
The drive there was uneventful. In a pinch I could have probably even taken a couple of the kids with me. There aren't any door handles though so they may have had to climb through the back window...The one that works.
The good news is that I got to the church OK and managed to sneak in before anyone could see my sweet ride.
The bad news is that I spilled iced coffee all over the car floor on the way home. I didn't even bother really cleaning it up. I don't think Jonathan would ever even notice.
I am thankful for the little junker but it's Jonathan's little junker.Never again will I drive that thing. Never again...
