A glimpse into our family – the good, the bad, and, of course, the funny

There are several things that should be experienced in every childhood…

…painting a fence…

…pitching a tent…

…building a tree house…


…and, of course, riding in a vehicle that could break down at any moment.  Think about it, when we were kids, our parents drove cars that usually made it where they were headed, but not always.  It’s an important part of growing up.

So is having a nickname.

What I can offer you is a chance to kill two birds with one proverbial stone – the chance to drive a vehicle that will probably get you where you are headed most of the time and the chance to inherit the nickname the owner of this vehicle proudly answers to.

That’s right, folks.  What I’m offering is the chance to enrich your child’s life by letting them experience the phenomenon that is running out of gas, leaking oil, or billowing smoke for no apparent reason.  It is truly character building to sit on in a four-lane highway with traffic flying by.  Trust me.

And the nickname!  Who wouldn’t want to have an endearing nickname?  A name for all of your buddies to call you?  Papa Smurf.  That’s what it will be.  And kids love Smurfs.

So, what are you waiting for!?  Be the first to make an offer on Old Blue, especially if you happen to be a Tarheels fan – what better way to show your loyalty than to drive a truck painted Carolina Blue?  Make me an offer I can’t refuse.

Do it for yourself.  Do it for your kids.

    I must have had a deprived childhood, but this is truly great salt of the earth stuff. Your lucky kids!

    Well, I’ve had my share of “Old Blue’s” through the impressionable years of you youth. And, come to think of it may have inadvertently contributed to some of your stories. Old Blue is a far cry better than the camp Jeep a certain someone just had to have. That story turned out to be character building and and opportunity to learn the next tier of auto mechanics (often at the most in-opertun times). Still it was fun, lot’s of fun. And, to top it off we found just the right buyer. I think I’ll pass on Old Blue for now, leaving it for someone else to experience and appreciate.

What do you think?
