Fun Monday- My Car

Tiggerlane is this week’s Fun Monday Host.  Her challenge:

I wanna see your CAR! It can be your current car, the first car you ever had, maybe your first new car with that new-car smell, a car you wrecked once, or even the dream car you would drive – given all the money in the world! Oh – and if you have a truck, SUV, lawnmower, whatever the local authorities allow you to drive, let’s see it!

Since I just posted about my car a couple of weeks ago, I though I would do something different.

Here is my grandfather and the sweet ride he had in the Civilian Conservation Corp back around 1934.


Here is my grandmother back in the 50’s on her ride:


Go check out the other Fun Monday participants.  There are so many this week I think I’ll still be reading them on Thursday!

    My ride is a mini van, yeah something I didn’t think I would ever own, but hey growing family, need more room!!! Have to climb too dang high to get in the truck, can’t smoke in Ashley’s car and the tin can of a beater hubby drives back and forth to work, well, no thanks I will pass riding in that!!!!
    Of course my dream ride would be a brand spanking new Bounder motor home, fully loaded, but hahahah I am a dreamer too!!!
