If my body were a car

IF MY BODY WERE A CAR...

If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull ...

But that's not the worst of it.

My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close

My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.

But here's the worst of it --


Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter, either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires!

  • New spark plugs,new spark plug wires. Fix crack in radiator. New tires with front end alighnment. Clean and adjust healight and the rest is just cosmetic. Your engine is just finaly broken in and is good to go another 100.000 miles before next tune up.

    You could trade it in for a newer model and be worse off and get stuck with a lemon.

    You owned your body/car for so long at least you already know it inside and out. You know what needs fixin. Besides that, they dont make them like they use to.

    We will outlast any new model out there with proper maintenance even if we are a litle rusry.

    The last time I looked at the condition of my body, it resembled at the most, a horse drawn carriage.

    All I know is that I can get a good number of miles using some old fashion oats and for headlights, two candles always do the job

  • Ok. Ron is the winner, He is the oldest clasic model. We will have to look for replacement wheels for your carriage in a musium. So you beter not crack or break a spoke wheel.
