While I work I listen to music via Pandora or Blip.fm. I’m still fairly new to blip, but so far it’s ok. I’ve been adding songs to create a custom playlist and found some oldie, but goodie songs. Such as Sir-Mix-A-Lot’s “My Hooptie”. Most people know of this rap artist based on his “Baby Got Back” song. But this song is all about a car that he had. Check it out:
Now after watchin’ that video, can yall relate? Lord knows I can. I have had some doozies when it comes to vehicles. Yeah they were doozies, but I absolutely LOVED THEM. I only hated one of ’em. My first car an ’81 Chevette aka “da bucket”, was a $500 beauty. This car was great with its NON-power steering as well as its broken/customizable shifter. It was customizable because I used an ink pen to press down on da shifter’s release to put it into gear. Da Bucket ended up dying a few months later, but other notable injuries included:
-left rear door failed to open, unless pushed from inside out
-heat thermostat was stuck on “cold”
-left hood hinged broken which made it difficult to open hood without totally losing the other hinge
My all time favorite was my next car called Da Bubble. This ’75 Corolla was great. It was my first manual transmission. I had not known how to drive one. My momz told my grandfather to take me to pick this car up after school and then go home. I didn’t know it was a stick shift. I got in it, and “attempted” to drive home. Somehow, I made it home. This car was great. It had tinted windows, 2 10” sub woofers, and a custom small steering wheel. Granted this car also had a small cubic area of seating since I pretty much sat in da back to seat to drive. Nor did it have a completed floor board on da driver’s side. It was rusted so I stuck a board of plywood down there. Da car broke down da first week I got it. Da car also broke down quite a few times later with my high school sweet heart. I remember my first drive to college and da car got EXTREMELY LOUD half way there. It had blown a hole in da manifold and muffler.
My other favorite has to be my long lost “Kee Kee”. This Jeep Cherokee Country threw a rod and died on da way to work. May she rest in peace. I loved that vehicle. 4wd was great in snow. Held my former mountain bike perfectly, and my hard headz loved riding in it.
What were your favorite vehicles? Or what was your least favorite? We’ve all had ’em.
Right now I desire to have a car I love, but even more, I’d love to have a MOTORCYCLE. (different story for a different day)
