206. Name Your Vehicle

by jfjudah

Have fun naming your first vehicle.

Mine was called the Brown Turd, a late-’80s gold Datsun that had lost its sheen. After that came the Bondo-mobile, a rusted out ’86 Toyota Corolla with a hole in the trunk so big that you could reach in and take stuff out. Rain was my enemy, but California was my home at that time, so it didn’t rain often. Among other improvements, I epoxied wire screening to the inside of the trunk and covered it with Bondo™. It was a great learning experience.

And it was the first of four free cars I have been given over the years. Yes, four and yes, free.
