This morning a bunch of old ladies were gathered around Skittle when I came out of 7-eleven cooing at her. They went nuts when I pushed the button on the key fob to unlock her and her lights flashed. When they realized it was me they started cracking up (more like cackling) One of them said "I just told your car how cure she was and I thought she was blushing!" It was so cute I smiled about it for about an hour! :bigthumb: Old people ROCK! :guitar:

Old people ROCK!
They do!

We have a good friend (70+), we call him our "Buy Guy" 'cause he kept our '73 purring like a kitten. Actually, it was his fault that we even had that bug. Our friend, Junior, had a '71 Super that he'd promised to sell to us when our daughter turned 16. When the day came, though, he couldn't part with his 'baby' so he helped us find the '73 and spent more hours than I can count tinkering with it.

When we bought Speedy, we took him by Junior's house for his stamp of approval. He'd never seen a NB up close (there was only one other one in our whole county) and he couldn't wait to inspect it. After the under-the-hood check, he sat in the driver's seat, the passenger's seat, and the back seat; he folded down the cargo space, cranked the stereo, opened up the top, and did the key/window trick. Finally, he told my daughter to hop in so he could 'take her for a spin.'

When they pulled back into the driveway, he was wearing a face-splitting, ear to ear grin. He'd discovered the turbo and Speedy's 5th gear. My daughter said she wasn't sure he'd ever turn around and head back home, lol. All Junior could say was, "DANG! And I just let Jerry [his wife] buy that stupid LeSabre!!!"

Guess you're never too old to be a NB convert!:thewave:
(If we'd have paid him for all those hours under the '73's hood, he could pay cash for one!)

Cute, nice, unless behind the wheel.

agreed.. i've seen too many cars run into store fronts because they hit the gas instead of the brakes to park.

Other than that... yay for oldies but goodies! :)

Had another elderly person make a comment about my car again last night. I went to 7-11 to get some coffee and (they always seem to hang out there lol) I came back out and there was an old man standing on the drivers side peering in. So I walked up and stood there and waited for him to look up and move out of the way so I could get in. So after what seemed like forever he finally looked up and said "Oh I'm sorry am I in your way?" So I said no big deal and he moved closer to my car so I could walk around him. So I said "No I dont need to get around you I need to get in my car." and he said "Ohhh I'm sorry. I should have known this was your car! A cute car for a cute girl!" He then made a comment about the color and said "You look Irish...are you?" So i said "Yes I am" and he then said "The perfect color car for a nice Irish Lass!" As flattering as it was I couldnt get him to stop...I really just wanted to get in the car and leave! LOL He was a cute old man though! Seemed like he just wanted someone to chat with. :kiss:

Hey yer lucky to get hit on PERIOD. I NEVER get hit on unless you count that one time at the metro in LB or in AC that time with the gay men. Yeah, only gay men want me. Or INCREDIBLY large women. Like freakishly huge.

Old people should all just get scooters. No cars, just little Rascals. Slap some euro badges on em and some flames...yeaaaahhh that's my retirement money!
