The Ex's Car
Oh my gosh....I remembered another married story! Lily woke me early this morn (Wed) and as I laid in bed this story hit me. Pics from Internet.......
My ex got an AMC Gremlin from my dad. Thankful to have had it but that was one ugly car. My ex was not the best at keeping cars up. Matter of fact, due to that I learned to do things myself. I had my brother teach me to change oil, then I taught myself to change spark plugs and wires, and all my bulbs for the lights. Now I know that don't sound like much these days but once upon a time it was really hard to get to the bulbs to change them. As for changing oil it used to be the cheapest way of having it done, before you could take you car anywhere and have oil changed. Oops, I digress, sorry. Moving on~ ex drove a car hard and wore them out. One point to that was the exhaust manifold. Actually this was probably not his fault. But his on the Gremlin kept coming loose. It would drop down from under the car and drag the ground. Every time this happened he pulled in K Mart and they would go under the car and tighten the manifold. Finally it came to a point that the attachment that held it in place was stripped and they could not tighten it anymore.
My ex had an idea!
