"What the hell
are we gonna do with that thing?"
I thought it was an appropriate response at the prospect of trading our Dune Buggy for a Hot Rod.
But now I know better.
This thing is freakin' cool!
I'm fascinated by
the nostalgia of it.
I can't help but wonder at all the different people that have sat in this thing through its long and varied 78 year history.
I'm in love with the fact that
total strangers squeal with delight and point when they see it driving by.
It's quite the conversation starter.
I'm a little intrigued when
total strangers take pictures.
Do they want to buy it? Do they want to show it to their buddies? Or do they want to build one themselves one day?
I laugh a little when
passerby's jump when Sean honks the, "Uuuuuhoooogaaaaah" horn.
Actually, I turn my head because I'm a little embarrassed, but I make sure to catch their reaction out of the corner of my eye.
So, the answer to the question, "What the hell
are we gonna do with that thing?" is that we are going to cruise around in our 1931 Ford Model A (it's predecessor being the Model T with wooden wheels!) and enjoy owning a little piece of history.
