About “little red”

I just got this car, and I love it! I needed a car to have fun with since my 1962 Bel Air wagon was destroyed by a drunk kid in a stolen truck last year. I saw it in a gas station with a for sale sign in it, went and asked about it, took it for a test drive, and wrote a check. It isn't what I expected to get, but I'm glad I got it! I still want to replace my wagon, but it isn't as urgent any more.

About “betty”
