Q of the day – beater wheels

I asked this one last year and there were some funny responses, so I’ll put it out there again…

Q of the daywhat beater wheels have you owned/driven?

Mine was a 1973 Ford Pinto station wagon. That was the car I learned to drive on back in the day. Oh so sh*tty – it shook uncontrollably when you “floored it” up to 55 mph. Bucket vinyl seats that scorched your ass in the summer. No A/C. Not that the engine could have handled A/C; it probably would have required you to put your feet down like Fred Flintstone and pedi-power it up a hill.


Quality Is Job One.

This car was such a beater that one day (we were living in Brooklyn at the time – late 70s), I came out to go to the store, got in the car and turned the key…nothing. I tried again…nothing. I got out of the car and popped the hood. Someone had stolen the battery. Not the car, the battery.
