Flash Back Friday

I was picking my brain on Wednesday to figure out a good flash back for this week, and finally found some good pictures in my computer that brought back fond memories: my first car!!

It's a 1990 Suzuki Sidekick, which makes it the same age as my little sister!! Kev found it for me on eBay while we were dating in 2005. It's one of the many things for which I owe him offspring.

Anyway, let's continue with the photos of this beauty:

Don't you just love the cobweb strung up over the passenger side dash? I hadn't driven it for a while at the time this picture was taken. You see, the head gasket was shot when I bought it (although we didn't know it) and one night when I was driving home from work the car kinda overheated and died on the side of the road.

But I loved it for the 6 months I drove it.

I also love the broken light cover for the passenger side blinker. You see, one time when I was driving home from Seth's with Kev, I spun out on Hwy 89 and slammed into a guard-rail in the canyon. It was a wee bit windy and snowy and the 4WD didn't really work. But the light didn't break!! Just the cover.

The Sidekick was a thing of beauty. The summer Kev and I were married, Sophia came to visit for extra days, and we took the top off for a trip to Pineview Resevoir. It was a great day at the "beach" and we let the sun warm us up all the way there and back. I do miss that car.

Oh, but when I really miss it, I can just go to Seth's and look in the neighbor's yard. Seth sold it to him for 400 bucks. Thanks!!
