1985 Dodge Omni

Cracker and pops, switching out the Zephyr for a different piece of shit.

Actually, this was a pretty good car, except that it freaked out at highway speeds. Madonna had to come pick me up one sexathon weekend, somewhere north of Ann Arbor, because it just refused to go faster than 55 - as if it had a governor.

[ca. February 1985]

Pops had a 1980 dark green one that succeeded the Monarch.  Orange on the dash and black wall tires and the smell of undercoating were its redeeming qualities.

Friday Hangover

Chevrolet Chevette. Of all the cars that should be dead, this is one you will never see at the Barrett Jackson. This shitbox does not spawn an acid flashback, because, frankly, it's was not that important in my life. My friends were not stupid enough to own one. My ex-inlaws had one for a while, but after I told them there was NFW their pregnant daughter or new grandbaby would get near that thing, they "upgraded" to a K-car derivative. I did need to document the harmonic convergence of seeing one on the Internet and one in real life on the same day. Now I need to go wash my eyes with bleach.
