About “the turd”

I worked in a shop. A customer came in with this car and wanted it fixed. So I fixed the car. His bill was about 120.00 and the car sat in the lot for about a week and a half. I called him up and said you going to pay your bill and pick this car up? He said man I dont know why I put any money into that car I should have taken it to the junk yard and I said ok you bring me your keys and titel I will pay your bill. he jumped all over it brought me the keys and title with in hours. the car had 1no belt and he brove it over 50 miles to the shop with out a belt so I had to get it home. I made a belt out of zip ties and it worked and lasted about 30 miles I cramed over 700.00 into this car and 3 years later the head gasket blew out and I sold it for 100.00 this car was a champ on gas had 235,000 miles on it when i sold it and have seen it on the road about a week ago

About “old mossy”

Bought it 2 weeks after I bought the Shelby. We bought it when we went in to sign the final paperwork on the Shelby and it was so pretty sitting there I had to have it. They practically gave it to us. The name old mossy is because the color is moss and our son thinks it's an old persons color.
